Lisa and Jarret’s wedding at Gather Estates was everything dreams are made of. Over the last year Lisa has become one of my very favorite people. Every time I see her it feels like we’ve known each other since kindergarten. Getting an inside look at her relationship with Jarret was nothing short of magical. These two beautiful people are perfect for each other. Not once did I see either of them stressed or anxious! All day they were calm, happy, and excited!
The details were plentiful and each and every one was amazingly gorgeous. Not surprising when you learn that Lisa incorporated a lot of aspects she created herself. Like the thank you cards and the individual monograms on her bridesmaids robes. (Can you say best bride ever?). Gather Estates was the perfect backdrop for their wedding. The simple elegance of the space allowed for their individuality to really flourish. And the fresh florals were the perfect way to add color and beauty to the space!
Putting all those little details aside for a minute – I want to share with you my favorite part of Lisa and Jarret’s wedding day. For most of my couples it’s their first look. And Lisa and Jarret’s was absolutely as sweet as can be. But they did something even cuter on their wedding day. About a half hour before their ceremony they tucked away by themselves to wait for their guests to arrive. Ten minutes before the ceremony I went to check on them. I found these two love birds playing music on Lisa’s iPhone and slow dancing by themselves. If I were the grinch that’s the moment my heart would have grown three sizes. As it is, in that moment I saw the definition of true love being shared between Lisa and Jarret.
Lisa and Jarret, I can’t thank the two of you enough for trusting me to capture your wedding day. Every moment was wonderful. Becoming your friend has been one of the highlights of 2018, and I’m sure if you were still in Tucson we’d be having double dates all the time! I can’t wait to see what the future holds for you!
And of course no wedding would be possible without the creative team!
