Maria and Alex were so fun to work with and the wedding industry runs in the family! Maria’s sister is an out of town wedding photographer and I was honored when she found me and trusted me for Maria’s wedding! Maria also has another sister in event planning and Maria’s mom was amazing at bringing this special day together since Maria and Alex live out of town! The wedding was held at St. Agnes Cathedral in Phoenix, Arizona and the reception was at their beautiful private estate in the country just outside of Springfield!
As you can see it was such a beautiful day for a wedding and everything went so smoothly! I went out to their estate in the morning to grab some candid pictures of getting ready and then get some posed portraits of Maria and the girls! They then hopped in a limo and I met them at St. Agnes Cathedral in Phoenix, Arizona. They did a full mass with their ceremony and I was able to capture some beautiful emotions! Afterwards, we headed back out to the estate! The backyard was all set up with a tent, cocktail tables, and hors d’oeuvres. We then had time to get more pictures of Maria, Alex, and the wedding party. When Maria and Alex made their entrance they walked right through the crown under the beautiful pergola and lead the way for the party to begin in the larger tents placed in the meadow. The lights popped on as everyone arrived to show the beautiful décor, florals, and chandeliers done by Eventful Rentals and The Flower Merchant! The first dances were to follow and let me tell you, the father daughter dance was a tear jerker! Simply Delicious Catering did the amazing hors d’oeuvres and a steak dinner to die for! Following were some hilarious speeches, cake cutting, bouquet and garter toss, dancing, dancing, and more dancing, and a sparkler exit (even thought it was just for pictures, because they just couldn’t stop partying :). I’m so glad that I got to be a part of this amazing day!
