Jake and Andrea are some of the most genuinely happy people I have ever met. From the moment I met them, I knew their wedding would be something truly special. They laugh easy, smile constantly, and love so deeply. You can almost feel the love leap back and forth when you see them look at each other.
Their wedding was at the gorgeous Desert Botanical Gardens in Phoenix, AZ. It was the very last day for an absolutely amazing light display by Bruno Munro, so we were sure to get some portraits taken around some of the sculptures. I wish I could do it justice. The mountain directly behind where Andrea and Jake exchanged vows lit up with thousands of circular light balls. It was so wonderfully perfect for their night to remember under the desert stars.
The ladies all got ready at Hotel Valley Ho, one of my favorite places in Scottsdale!
All of the florals and details were done by Bloom & Blueprint .
Just outside of the Hotel Valley Ho is Scottsdale Civic Center. Jake and Andrea have long been lovers of the grounds around it, including the famous LOVE structure. We opted to have the first look there.
How gorgeous are all of these dresses together?!?
You can’t have a desert wedding without a few succulents!
This was special display the botanical gardens were hosting. At night these water bottle structures lit up to the beat of music!
Thank you so much for letting me into your world. It was an honor to document your wedding. <3
*And thank you to my dear friend and second shooter, Kate. I am so grateful for you support! My brides are SPOILED!
