Derek and Valerie Tie the Knot at Oasis at Wild Horse Ranch

This gorgeous couple is Derek and Valerie.  They had their beautiful wedding at the Historic Oasis at Wild Horse Ranch.  Derek and Valerie actually reside in Phoenix.  They went to school at the U of A and wanted a destination type feel for their guests.

Wild Horse is True to it's name, Oasis in the desert.  They held their ceremony among the Palm Trees and quaint little creek.

Butterflies were a part of their theme.  What adorable boxes she gave to each of her guest.  The name place cards had a heart that was embedded with seeds that the guest take home and plant.

It was a beautiful day and we thank you for letting Jon and I - Something Blue to be a part of your very special day.

Two Love Birds are Wed - Marc and Brianna

We had the pleasure of spending the day with Brianna and Marc on their wedding day in Cave Creek. The Cave Creek area is littered with huge boulders and a western flare. It is a beautiful location.
I started out the day with Bri and the girls. Bri is a kindergarten teacher. She is everything you would want a teacher to be for your little ones. Sweet, kind, funny, patient, loving and smart. I love these pics and the words that are above her bed - "love is spoken here". All that needs to be said

Here is her arsenal of shoes for the day.  She used them all.  The ones in the middle were worn the least during the day.  LOL.

Ok, so I wanted to start this story with this pic because it is AHHHHHHMAZING!!!!!!!  But, this story is about two people in love.  You have to admit she is radiantly  gorgeous.
Bri and Marc chose to have a special first meeting before the ceremony.  The weather man promised sunny skys all week.  Yet on the morning of the wedding, in rolled the storm clouds.  We fought rain all day.  So Bri had her dad run around town to find an umbrella (hoping for pink to match her colors)  Dad pulled through.  Yea Dad!! 

Bri and Marc were troopers -dodging in and out of rain all day.

The ceremony was held at Desert Hills Presbyterian.  The church was built up against the Boulders and you can see them through the Vaulted Windows.  Can you say gorgeous.

Next we head over to downtown Cave Creek.  The reception was held at El Encanto.  Across the street were  stores that resembled an old western town.  On went the cowgirl and cowboy hats and boots.

Here are some of her details.  This chair shot is one of our favorites.

Can you see the engraving on the inside of the ring?

 The couple on the far left is Bri's parents. The other couples are her parent’s best friends from  high school days and they have celebrated weddings together for all their children. They do what ever it takes no matter where they have to travel to make it. Most of them (if not all) were from back East. Bri was the last of all their children to get married.

Man - could they party and dance. They were hittin the dance floor all night. In the middle of them dancing their hearts out, in the middle of the reception, I hit the floor in the middle of them and started shooting. They all started cheering and hammin it up. Ok, so.... I am not going to win any awards for it - but how fun for them.

I leave you with two beautiful shots of the couple.  I hope you didn't mind the long blog, but it was worth it.
Congratulations Marc and Bri.  We loved sharing your wedding day with you.
