Christian + Sydney

Flagstaff Whimsical Wedding Day

This one was for the books!! Looking out over Rodgers Lake on a warm August afternoon, Christian + Sydney got married under the pine trees and with their best friends. This cabin is where Sydney grew up as a child with her sisters running in the forest and fields. It was so special for her to get married at the very place that formed her wild spirit.

They met in California at school. They are both down to earth, kind, genuine kind of people. But I also need to add FUN!!! Oh the joy of young love and exuberant personalities! This backyard Flagstaff wedding was a dream. From their sweet kisses to that sunset to the BEST wedding dance party I’ve been too. It was one of those!!!

Alex + Amber

South Mountain Farm Wedding

Green trees swaying in the wind in the 110 degree weather in Phoenix, Arizona. It honestly was not as hot as it sounds! The trees at South Mountain cover the venue with sprawling green grass and beautiful mountain views. Alex and Amber have a sweet love story that involves pursuit and honesty and deep passion. Their romance was over the course of a few years and this wedding was the perfect representation of God’s love for his creation.

Kaitlyn + Brandon // Scottsdale, AZ

Autumn in Phoenix is no joke!! It’s still 90 degrees and hot. But it was perfect for Kaitlyn + Brandon’s desert backyard wedding! This day was all things lovely. From her bountiful florals, to blue skies, to the sweetest vows spoken. Their day was magic.

Kaitlyn + Brandon met years ago in Flagstaff out dancing at the local two step bar. She is from Phoenix, he from Flagstaff. But they decided to get married down in the desert because it’s different and unique. Their friends had a backyard where lots of weddings took place and they knew this was the perfect location. Full of lush green trees and a green grass for days!

At the end of the day-the heat didn’t bother anyone. Their love was displayed for all to see and Brandon couldn’t keep his eyes off of her!

Taryn + Ryan // Flagstaff, AZ

October 13th // Backyard Wedding

Did someone say Oktoberfest wedding?!? Taryn and Ryan created the most autumn themed wedding I have ever been to!! Bratwurst, beer, pumpkins, and pies- it gave you all the right October feels. I cannot express how the detail that went into this wedding. Taryn left no stone up turned.

Taryn and Ryan’s families new each other growing up. They are the most unlikely of couples but they work so perfectly together. He is this wild, extreme, kind, happy guy. She is this creative, smart, organized, beautiful woman. They connected again while dancing at the local two step bar one night and felt an instant mutual attraction. They run together, hike together, travel together, and cook together. They are the best of friends!

The day did not go according to plan but when does a wedding ever happen on plan? Within the last decade it has not rained on October 13th. It rained the whole day this year! Due to a fluke tropical storm we had a beautiful rainy wedding day! I know if it rains on your wedding day it’s good luck- they got luck piled up for the rest of their lives if that is true!! Taryn’s wedding vision was amazing. Every detail came to light. While it thundered strong during the ceremony, the reception went all night long in that tent!

Oktoberfest was the theme! Her mother made homemade german bratwurst, sourcrout, and potatoes. With hints of blackberry everywhere in the candy popcorn, infused water, and homemade blackerry pies it was a treat!!

They danced and danced with a sparkler exit at the end!!

Jac + Steven // Munds Park, AZ

Backyard Forest Whimsical Wedding

Sept 8th 2018 // Arizona

On a warm September day Jac + Steven got married in the forest of Flagstaff with their family and friends surrounded. Where else would they get married other than Steven’s parents back yard? It’s where they would rest from the stress of college and enjoy family time and where he proposed to Jacqueline last year. And now it’s the location of where they are united as one. This wedding was really family focused with his grandparents making the food, her ring from her grandmother, and a lot of family in the wedding party. It was full and happy!

Pops of color, eucalyptus leaves everywhere, and an old fashion car gave all the right fall feels to this wedding. Simple, colorful, and whimsical. I could say those same words to describe Jac + Steven’s relationship. They are full of joy and laughter, always. They are the best of friends and you will always find them ready to have a good time. With Steven’s grandfathers homemade pulled pork, made that morning, their reception was easy going and relaxed. Yard games and a sunset was the perfect touch to their backyard wedding.

Now Jac is now your traditional bride. She wanted a different type of dress….one that would stand out in your mind. A grey/purple tulle skirt kinda of dress! She ordered it off of Etsy from a lady in Europe. Love her unique style so much throughout the whole wedding day. Hope you enjoy all the colors + romance + whimsy in this wedding!
