I love the American Southwest and was so excited when bride Adrianna contacted me about photographing her wedding in Phoenix. I had photographed Adrianna’s matron-of-honor’s wedding last year at Spruce Mountain Ranch, and am so grateful that Adrianna had loved the photography that I created for Kyle & Scott…and how cool to see Kyle and Scott again in Phoenix! Adrianna has an angelic beauty; she looked so gorgeous in her gown by Maggie Sottero Designs and gorgeous cathedral length veil. The gold calligraphy of their invitation suite and vow booklets was simply exquisite. It was a very warm late April day…97F to be exact, but the cool shaded environment of their venue The Secret Garden Event Center was heavenly. I adored their outdoor reception area designed by Regina of Meant2Be Events! The groom Tarik reminds me of a gentlemen from Downtown Abbey and I loved capturing his expressions as he saw Adrianna come down the aisle. And Tarik’s talented sister who composed and recited a poem dedicated to the couple at the ceremony…how amazing! I wish Adrianna and Tarik all the best in their new life together in DC and hope to get to see you in the future! Thank you so much for everything!
