Annie and Matt’s wedding was nothing short of magical. This sweet couple got married at The Highlands at Dove Mountain in the foothills of Tucson, Az, and they were surrounded with their family and friends. Plus there were lots of fun surprises! The day started at the Westward Look Resort and Spa where all the ladies were getting ready! Getting ready is one of my favorite parts of the day because there is so much anticipation! There’s music playing, mimosas flowing, lots of giggling, and on special occasions there are matching robes and confetti canons! But then there’s always a moment where the bride gets into her gown and everything just goes still. And the bridesmaids collectively sigh and mama cries. Those moments are some of my favorite. The in between moments before the energy gets really high again!
The first big surprise of the day was the gazebo, which Annie had no idea was being custom made for her. Check out all the florals decking out the entire structure, and the moment where Annie saw it for the first time! It was like the emotion of a first look moment. But with flowers instead of her fiance! The first time Annie and Matt saw each other was when Annie walked down the aisle. Matt starting crying when the ring bearer walked down the aisle. His emotions were even more overwhelming when he actually saw his bride. The ceremony was short and sweet, and followed by some of my all time favorite husband and wife photos. Mountains, check! Desert, check! A gorgeous couple? double check! And the night ended with a big party! Dancing, cake, and even corn hole! It was a dream.
Annie and Matt, thank you so much for trusting me to be a part of your wedding. I enjoyed ever moment of your big day. And the love you share is so pure and sweet. I can’t wait to see where life takes you!
Huge shoutout to the Creative Team without whom this beautiful wedding wouldn’t have been possible!
