Ive grown so used to elopements in the Sedona and northern arizona mountains that I have almost forgotten what it was like to be a part of an elaborate and big wedding day event. The hustle, bustle and tradition of getting ready and the story telling aspect of someone ones big day is exciting and filled with activity.
Natalie and Michael met me out at Bell Rock in Sedona, AZ for their engagement photos several months back. After meeting them one time I could already tell that their wedding day was going to be an epic one for the books.
For one Natalie is simply GORGOUS!! I mean... come one. Just look at her wedding day glow.
Same pose... same time... two different locations.
These bridesmaids are pinterest worthy... <3<3 <3
Erick my second photographer did a killer job capturing Michael and his dapper dudes.
The shape of this church in scottsdale was so cool... After some family formals we headed off to McDowell Sonoran Preserve a Local desert sanctuary park for some gorgeous desert portraits.
Love love love these rolling desert Scottsdale mountains
Two flowers in the desert... I love the midday sun in these photos....
After a little open desert adventure we headed over to Gainey Ranch Golf Club in Scottsdale, AZ for the reception portion of Natalie and Michael's Big Day.
I loved these orange trees!!
the property views at this venue was to die for... a sweet mix of nature, elegance and city charm.
time to have a little fun with the bridal party!!
Lets pop a little bubbly and celebrate!
boys will be boys!!
how about a first dance?
the flowers Natalie picked out were amazing!! Good job Blissful Blooms Florals!
Hats off to Leslie's Creative cakes and to Natalie's sister for the beautifully handwritten signs and stationary around the venue.
Of course whats a proper wedding without a cake cutting?
Many many thanks to Natalie and Michael for having us be apart of your very special day!! I wish the two of you best of luck and many blessings on your life adventure together!
