Sabrina and Raj were married March 16, 2013 at beautiful Villa Siena in Gilbert, Arizona!  This was an Indian fusion wedding lasting three days.  On the final day two ceremonies took place, the first, Indian to honor Raj's heritage and the second, Christian to honor Sabrina's heritage.  We just love watching two families with vastly different backgrounds coming together to blend as one ... very moving.  Thank you both so much for having us as your wedding photographers.  It was an honor to be a part of this wonderful blending of culture and tradition!

Phoenix Bride & Groom Magazine featured Jessica and Dean's wedding in Sedona on their blog! The magazine also featured this wedding in print in their current Winter/Spring 2013 issue. This was one of our favorite wedding's of 2012 and we simply love the couple! Their wedding was held last May in Sedona, Arizona. The ceremony was set against the spectacular red rocks of Seven Canyons and their reception was held at the beautiful Enchantment resort. Check out the feature on their blog and be sure to pick up a current copy of the magazine. They have plenty of wonderful ideas to plan your dream wedding!

Elissa first contacted us what seems like forever ago now.  In fact is was the first week in September, 2011.  So much time elapsed between that initial inquiry and the time she actually hired us that we thought sure we hadn't gotten the job :-).  Turned out that Elissa just had a lot going on in her life, as we all do, including buying a home with her fiance, Spenser.  Once wedding planning was back on track Elissa contacted us again and we were overjoyed to hear from her!

We knew from meeting Elissa and from previous email correspondence that she worked at the venue she was planning on holding her wedding at, gorgeous McCormick Ranch Golf Club in Scottsdale.  What we weren't aware of at the time was that Elissa's father works directly across the hall from her.  Turns out Elissa isn't just any employee, her family owns McCormick Ranch Golf Club.  Needless to say, we were beyond honored to be chosen to photograph Elissa and Spenser's monumental wedding, especially given how many amazing wedding photographers Elissa meets and comes in contact with through her job!

So, after much planning, and a year-and-a-half later, Elissa and Spenser's big day finally arrived!  They were married on March 9th, 2013.  The day was thick with clouds to the point of looking threatening and there was a distinct chill in the air not at all in standing with normal spring weather in Scottsdale.  This did not phase Elissa one bit as this weather was exactly what she had been hoping for ... we did tell her to pray for clouds :-).  She couldn't have been more happy and besides, at least it wasn't like the weather the day before - freezing cold and pouring rain all day!

Elissa is a planner ... down to the minute type of planner.  She is very hands-on and involved and her and Spenser's wedding could not have played out any better.  All her planning definitely payed off.  The details wowed, from the spring-themed ceremony set-up on the lawn overlooking the lake, to the lovely sitting area arranged with elegant white furniture and a dancing fire pit, to the colorful and aromatic floral arrangements filling the reception space and the cake table containing multiple yummy sweets, to the fog-filled first dance, to the spectacular firework show, nothing was left out.  It was simply amazing!

We have to make special mention of Jessica Gelder and Nikki Laing and their team from SWEET SOIREE WEDDING AND EVENT PLANNING for pulling together all the details and making this wedding the remarkable event that it was!  As usual, they outdid themselves!  Be sure to check out Part 2 of this wedding!

Thank you Elissa and Spenser for entrusting us as your wedding photographers!  We hope you enjoy the sneak peak!  xoxo
