Pioneer Village Wedding | Callie + Sean

So many of my couples have been together for a long time 5+ years and I absolutely love it! Andy and I just celebrated 10 years together (I know it's crazy!), so I can totally relate to those that have been together for a while. 

Callie + Sean have known each other for 12+ years and started out as best friends and then started dating, which let us to their Pioneer Village Wedding last week! It's such an awesome place that is totally customizable. They had their ceremony on their lawn area with the beautiful trees as the backdrop. Their reception followed under gorgeous string lit tents...total holiday vibes :) 

These two were so dang cute throughout the entire day, but their first look was just perfect. Right when we told Sean we were taking him to the first looks you could see the nerves start to kick in and his face was so cute when he turned around and saw his beautiful bride for the first time. After they got a good look at each other they just totally embraced one another and it got a little emotional in the best way possible. I always tell me couples first looks are so powerful because you truly get to experience that moment of seeing your spouse for the first time and many times that moment is so overwhelming in every emotion...I just love first looks <3 

In January they are headed off for an epic European honeymoon and I'm terribly jealous...who needs a photographer to shoot photos and videos of their honeymoon extravaganzas ;)

Pera Club Wedding | Zach + Meryl

If you know Zach + Meryl you know they are two of the most kind, fun and loving people you have ever met! I'm so happy I got to capture their Pera Club Wedding this past weekend :) 

When Meryl arrived at the Pera Club and put on her dress, she looked absolutely breath taking, but adding her grandmother's veil took the look to a new level. Their wedding planner Liz from 25 Event Management has known Zach for 20+ years and helped him tie his tie and put on his boutonniere. It was such a sweet moment between the two of them and I think the day started to become very real for Zach :) 

Zach's last name is Hall so their theme was the Hall-a-days and it was perfect for their Pera Club Wedding! They had beautiful Christmas trees for the ceremony backdrop, Meryl's mom made these perfect holiday lanterns and Santa even came to the cocktail hour! It was such a blast and I'm so happy I could be a part of their Pera Club Wedding!

Windmill Winery Lake House Wedding | Kelci + Kyle

If you would have told me when I was growing up that I would be photographing my friend's weddings I probably would have thought you were crazy! But I'm so incredibly happy and lucky that I get to do just that. I've known Kelci since kindergarten and seeing her so happy and in love, just makes my heart smile :) 

The day was perfect for a Windmill Winery Lake House Wedding from the start with the amazing Arizona weather with just the right amount of cloud coverage and the sun still peaked out (a photographer's dream!) to create some beautiful photos. They were surrounded by so much love, happiness and fun and made it a breeze to photograph :) Thank you so much for everyone that helped make their Windmill Winery Lake House Wedding possible!
