Small, intimate weddings have officially won my heart. This recent Gunflint Trail wedding was no exception. Set at the lovely Poplar Haus, officiated by the brides sister, and with only the couple’s closest family and friends in attendance…there was nothing but love in this couple’s big day. Love and a really beautiful setting….
It would make sense that it hadn’t rained for 100 days….and then the moisture decided to make an appearance for this lovely couple’s day. Luckily it cleared just in time to still have the gorgeous rooftop reception. And the sky that was left after the rain was pure magic.
These two wanted just a simple celebration, with a ceremony set in the gorgeous pines of Goldwater Lake. It was short, sweet, and oh so beautiful.
Small, backyard celebrations have officially become my favorite. Doesn’t hurt that with this one every detail was so beautiful, and the couple are actually good friends of ours. Plus, holy crap are they photogenic together! And as an added bonus….man can they dance! Gotta love a cowboy wedding. ;)
This wedding was small and simple….but definitely not short on beautiful details. I also think they picked the one non-windy day of the entire spring, which definitely helped me!
We unfortunately had crazy to winds to contend with on this sweet couple’s big day…..welcome to spring in the southwest. We made it work though, and I’m so happy with the way the photos turned out! And on a side-note, can we all take a second to appreciate how photogenic the bride’s horse is!?! I mean come on….
When picturing a small, intimate garden wedding, they don’t come any prettier than this. Set in the heart of Scottsdale, this venue made the most lovely backdrop for this sweet and simple wedding.
To say this wedding didn’t go according to plan would be a bit of an understatement. It was supposed to take place on a beach in Puerto Rico….but unfortunately Hurricane Maria derailed those plans. And also left them stranded there for two weeks unable to get out. So for this being their plan b a couple months later…you would never know it. They were even able to bring a bit of the beach here to AZ. :)
Theme weddings can sometimes be tricky….if the theme isn’t uniform throughout the wedding, it can come off as just confusing, and a little all over the place. Well this roaring 20’s themed wedding was perfectly executed, down to every detail….even on the guests. It made for a beautifully different wedding that was so fun for me to photograph!
I’ve been lucky to have multiple backyard weddings this year that have proven you don’t necessarily need a big, fancy venue to have a beautiful day. This was definitely the case for this wedding….it was low key, simple, and oh so lovely. Doesn’t hurt that the bride and groom were a ridiculously striking couple too. :)
