California Mountain Wedding

Chevy and Todd’s California mountain wedding was a very classy affair, dare we say a dream wedding? We do! (And we are stoked and honored to be their wedding photographers.) The love that Chevy and Todd share with their family and friends, who surrounded them at just over 5,000 feet, is ah-mazing … What a rad location too: the small California mountain town of Lake Arrowhead, California.

Chevy & Todd’s California Mountain Wedding: The Details

Todd took the main role in organizing the event, from securing the vendors (not the easiest of tasks considering the distance from their home in Arizona to the mountains of California) to choosing the color pallet and outfits (save Chevy’s dress). He also spearheaded all the fine details, including the tablescapes, the desert table … and, well, everything! Family and friends stayed at Lake Arrowhead’s only creekside cabin resort, the Arrowhead Pine Rose Cabin Resort, where both the ceremony and reception were held.

How the Day Unfolded …

Chevy, Todd, and their entire crew got ready in their cabins as one of the main cabins was prepped for the day: food, drink, flowers, tunes, etc. Chevy made her way to the ceremony via horse and carriage (sick!) and an intimate ceremony followed. After the ceremony, Chevy and Todd stole away for a bit and had their portraits taken on the mountainside, a most picturesque view and setting to be sure! Then, nestled amongst the pines (and some portable patio heaters), dinner, desert, and a bit of dancing followed. Delectable food? Check! Legit deserts? Double check!! Finally, as the night wound down, family and friends retreated indoors for stories and some traditional nightcaps. In the end, the night fell quiet, and their love showed strong!

The Photographs!

Thank you so much for checking out Chevy & Todd’s blog! Please, scroll on … And enjoy gazing upon the love that Chevy & Todd share … They have an amazing family … and their friends truly rock!

Stay Rad … And Become Love!! – Amii & Andy

Frankie & Brandon’s Windmill Winery Barn Wedding

Frankie & Brandon’s barn wedding at The Windmill Winery was down right rad. Their love is hot. But the weather on their wedding day was perfect! And, with family and friends ready to celebrate well into the night, the event was legit!

How the Day Began: From a Phoenix Salon to The Windmill Winery

Frankie and the rest of the ladies began their day at Salon Embellish, with the talented B00scar Beauty handling the makeup artistry. After getting their locks in order, the ladies headed to Florence for final prep, where the guys were already getting ready at GreenTree Inn & Suites, Florence’s premier hotel.

Then, around 3 PM, when the weather was absolutely gorgeous, the wedding party and guests started to assemble on The Windmill Winery’s grounds, which are always top notch! The ladies did a bit of touch up in the bridal cottage. And the guys hit up a quick game of Cards Against Humanity.

The First Look/Ceremony:

Prior to the ceremony, Frankie & Brandon opted for a first look, which went down on the south end of The Windmill Winery’s property. It was a touching moment that had them teary eyed, twirling, and kicking up their heels. After a few portraits, they headed over for their ceremony, which took place on the greenest grass, under an archway of brick.

The Barn Reception & All the Rest . . . And a Slideshow!

Frankie, Brandon, and their family and friends partied the night away in The Windmill Winery’s barn, where Arizona’s DJ Entertainment ran the show and Kiss the Chef Catering and Piece of Cake Deserts supplied the immaculate eats!

We’d love for you to check out some of the other vendors from Frankie & Brandon’s most rad wedding day: Floral: Flowers by Jodi; Invitations: PaperCrazy; and, of course, Frankie’s Shoes: Lauren Lorraine.

And, finally, make sure you check out the slideshow version of their wedding photographs at the bottom of the blog! See you soon, friends!

Jennifer & Andrew’s Phoenix, Arizona, Desert Botanical Garden Wedding

We’re over the moon! Jennifer & Andrew’s love and their gorgeous wedding at the Desert Botanical Garden in Phoenix, Arizona, are … Wow!

Their Desert Botanical Garden Story

The day began under the care of Arizona’s #1 makeup artist, Heather Wilson, at Jennifer’s cousin’s home. SHE. SERIOUSLY. ROCKS! Heather handled the hair and makeup for both Jennifer and her sister, while the gentlemen got ready downstairs. Jennifer was adorned in a beautiful Morilee wedding gown by Madeline Gardner. And Andrew rocked some BLACK by Vera Wang. It was definitely tiny dancer meets dapper gentleman, and everyone swooned!

Now, Jennifer loves the full moon, so, naturally, Jennifer & Andrew chose to have her wedding on the eve of a full moon, in the midst of fragrant, blooming cacti. The smell was ah-mazing! Their ceremony went down at The Steele Herb Garden. It was intimate and full of so much laughter and tears.

Following the ceremony, Jennifer and Andrew shared a sunset toast. They toasted their love, as the sun set and as the party started … And the party was off the hook, catered by the impeccable Creations in Cuisine Catering and flawlessly timed and tuned by our favorite DJs in the entire world, The Beat Booth.

Jennifer and Andrew danced the night away, chaperoned by their best friends, Brody (brown) and Macy (tan). You couldn’t not smile and shed a tear at the sight of Brody snuggling up in the tulle of Jennifer’s dress as the night ended …

Their Vendors

Finally, we can’t forget the rest of Jennifer & Andrew’s top-notch vendors! Jennifer’s shoes were by Badgley Mischka. Andrew’s accessories were compliments of The Tie Bar. They purchased their rings from The Diamond Vault. And their videographer was Daniel Wagner.

Their Engagement Adventure

And if you missed their ah-mazing engagement adventure story, you can check out their photographs and story here: Jennifer & Andrew’s Butterfly Wonderland Arizona Engagment!

Cheers, friends!

Jennifer & Andrew’s Butterfly Wonderland Arizona Engagement

Jennifer & Andrew started out their Arizona engagement adventure with us at Butterfly Wonderland. Butterfly Wonderland is America’s largest indoor butterfly pavilion. In fact, Butterfly Wonderland is the perfect spot to start an Arizona engagement adventure. When we arrived, a butterfly landed on Jennifer’s shoulder. It remained on her shoulder the entire time we were there! Amazingly, the butterfly matched her Jenni Lune butterfly necklace. Rad!

House of Tricks

Jennifer & Andrew love to laugh, and they laughed and shared so many joy-filled moments all the way through their adventure. Now, what’s an adventure without a beginning, right? Jennifer & Andrew’s engagement went down at House of Tricks, an award-winning restaurant with some of the finest dining in Tempe. So we returned there for a brief stop (and some photographs) before heading to their home for portraits with their best friends, their dogs Brody (11) and Macy (3).

Four Peaks Brewing Company

Of course, Jennifer & Andrew didn’t get engaged on their first date. Their first date happened at Four Peaks Brewing Company’s 8th Street Brewery. And that’s where they ended their adventure, and the evening, grubbing on 8th Street Brewery’s legit eats while sampling some of their beverages.

Additional Details for This Arizona Engagement + the Desert Botanical Garden

Jennifer’s ring is from The Diamond Vault. Her dress is from Elizabeth and James, and her heels are Pura López. Andrew’s style combines gear from Express, The Tie Bar, and Cole Haan. Finally, Jennifer & Andrew will be married at the Desert Botanical Garden in mid-March, an event not to be missed!

Savannah & Tyler’s Arizona Elopement || Arizona Wedding Photographers

Savannah & Tyler eloped in the fruit packing house at the Historic Sahuaro Ranch, outside of Phoenix, Arizona. It was an intimate evening complete with a little dancing, some Buca di Beppo, and a whole lot of laughing. Savannah was adorned in a Lucca Maxi from BHLDN, and Tyler was decked out in a fitted suit and bowtie from Nick’s Menswear. The two were more gorgeous than all the stars combined. In describing the love this pair shares, Jane Austen said it best, “The very first moment I beheld him [him for her and her for him, that is], my heart was irrevocably gone.”

Shine on, bright stars. Shine on!

Hugs & High Fives,

Amii & Andy || a couple of rad, tattooed Arizona Elopement Photographers || serving Phoenix, Arizona, the United States & Worldwide
