Chelsea and Dom got married at one of my favorite venues ever, the Desert Botanical Gardens. The two of them moved here from Michigan a few years ago, and one of the first places they went to in Arizona was Papago Park. This is actually where they got engaged and I am honored to say I was able to photograph both of these incredible moments!
Their friends and family flew out from Michigan to join them for this special day, as well as a lot of their work friends. These two actually met while at work. Maybe being a workaholic pays off sometimes?!
The bridal party got ready at Saguaro Hotel in Scottsdale, and planned her time very well which allowed us to squeeze in a mini bridal boudoir session before the ceremony. It was a fun time consisting of ice-filled sinks and mimosas aplenty!
They had a beautiful, boho-esque wedding in the garden. The surroundings matched her Thanksgiving colored bouquet and the groomsmen’s attire so well! There are just so many great photos to choose from.
Dom is truly THE funniest guy! After meeting his family, I one hundred percent see where he gets it from. Chelsea is definitely in for a very fun ride.
Chelsea wanted to see if we could play around with some more “moodier” photos with some editing, so here are a few we selected to match that vibe:
If you are wanting extra time or have specific requests for your photographer, be sure to communicate that. They are here to make your day the best it can be, and you only have once chance to capture these special moments. Take advantage of your time with them because it absolutely pays off!
