Between the private residence, the Arizona LDS temple and the Wright House, we had an endless amount of incredible places to take photos for Honoré and Tanner! These two are a dream to photograph, and surely you can see the love radiating from each photo. I loved Honoré's style, with her handmade dress by her mom (wow, I know), to the classiness of her hair, veil and jewelry, all the way to the garden style with lots of greenery, and on ya, PINKS! This bright color of pink was soooo pretty. The bridesmaids had gorgeous lace dresses and the sisters had floor length flowy dresses, with some stunning flowers to compliment it all. Okay, now scroll down already :)
When I met Catherine for the first time, we just clicked! She always has a big smile on her face and just makes you feel like you've known her for years. I quickly came to adore both her and Michael, and their genuine caring nature. She told me about her FOMO (fear of missing out, lol), so we made sure we had a team of three photographers to capture everything on her wedding day!
Your jaw will drop when you see her Marchesa gown, and how stunning she looked from every angle! And Micheal followed suit, looking so handsome in his tux. All of their details and decor were so classy and timeless, not to mention the beauty of Brophy Chapel and The Biltmore. I'm not a super emotional person, but ceremonies and toasts, always get me! How incredibly special their ceremony was at this gorgeous Chapel, filled with reverence and so much love for these two. It's pretty special to see them make vows to eachother and God. I was in awe.
Now, on to Dudley, their fur baby. He got to come along to our engagement session in Sedona, but... didn't get to come to the wedding day. So, you have to scroll down to see how they included him in the wedding day, with their signature drink. They also had a live band, which was AWESOME. Catherine surprised Michael with a cigar bar, and we took the traditional Clancy photo of all the men with cigars. She had a cookies and milk bar as a late night snack too. So good! We had such a good time, our 9 hours of coverage flew by. We may or may not have wanted to stay and dance and hang out longer. Enjoy this little peek at their day!

Okay, I've tried to write this post three times now, and everything I come up with just doesn't do it justice to describe Jessie and Jason, and being a part of their wedding. Just know that what I write, will not come close to how you'd feel if you met them :) I finally got to meet them at their rehearsal dinner the night before their wedding. Since their wedding was destination, and most of the 100+ guests were flying in from Oklahoma, we had only had phone conversations and emails up until then. Let's just say, Jessie's whole being radiates of kindness. Her personality is infectious!!! She AND Jason, are beauty and humility wrapped in to one. They clearly came from amazing families and we were so lucky to be among these great people all day.
My favorite part of their wedding, was capturing all of the love... every guest, every candid moment, and most importantly, these two! Duh, they're gorgeous. And to top it all off, the most easy going clients on the planet. The wind was out of control. That did not distract them one bit! They came to celebrate, and celebrate they did, down to the last minute. Every single person. Even Jessie's Geemo (grandma) never stopped smiling and bopping from her chair next to the dance floor.
They were surrounded by their closest people, no organized bridal party, but just family and friends who love them. All gorgeous people, might I add. If you combine that with the beauty of the Arizona desert at the Camelback Inn, throw in the Beer Burro, killer catering, a little golf, a live band and a dang good wedding planner to make sure everything is run smoothly, you've got yourself a pretty perfect day. Scroll down, you'll easily see what I'm talking about.
I was amazed at the love and support shown for Tiffanie and Terrance on their wedding day by their family and friends, as well as their love for eachother and their new family. I always get to know our couples on a more intimate level than I ever expected. It let's me in to their story, their love and their connection not only for eachother, but the relationships of all of those close by their side on their wedding day. Tiffanie had two amazing men, who raised her and love her, walk her down the aisle. That's when the tears began to well up in my eyes. It was clear why she chose Terrance, and how his character so closely resembled these father figures. His gift for his new son, was the coolest thing a young boy could ask for (scroll down), and Tiffanie's sweet demeanor with her new daughters was a great example to all mothers, blended family or not. This obviously hits home for me, and how much I appreciate bonus parents more than words can express. I was pretty much fighting back the tears from then on out, and especially during all of the dances during their reception.
Can we just talk about Tiffanie's dress? I have never seen such beautiful layers of lace with sheer stripes. I was stunning on her! Her florals were all greenery and whites, which is so timeless and elegant. There were so many cute details as well, plus a plethora of yummy desserts. I am so grateful to have had the opportunity to get to know these two, and capture this time in their lives! Enjoy.
