Jennifer and Nick’s Royal Palms Resort wedding

Royal Palms Resort and Spa wedding photography

Jennifer and Nick’s wedding was a day 20 years in the making. It was intimate celebration in the Garden of Love at the Royal Palms Resort & Spa. I love their ceremony spot, framed with pink bougainvilleas and Camelback Mountain above. The reception was one of the prettiest I have seen. One long family style table covered in flowers and candles in an orange grove under the stars! Congratulations Jennifer and Nick, wishing you another happy 20 years- and beyond!

Amy and Drew’s Royal Palms wedding

Amy and Drew were married at the beautifully classic wedding venue the Royal Palms Resort in Phoenix. Amy was jaw droppingly gorgeous and Drew was perfection in a bow tie on their wedding day. Friends and family from the midwest got a taste of what Phoenix is all about in November- blue skies and perfect temps with Camelback Mountain looming in the background. From the first look to the last dance Amy and Drew seemed so happy to be with each other and all of their loved ones. One of my favorite moments at the ceremony was when Amy’s sister sang John Denver’s “Annie’s Song” a song that was also sang at Amy’s parent’s wedding. I am so happy for this wonderful couple and wish them many years of happiness together!

Amy and Drew’s Royal Palms Resort engagement session

I met Amy and Drew at the Royal Palms Resort for their engagement session. We walked around the many secret little nooks and cozy spots around the property including the very place Drew proposed. I can’t wait for their wedding next fall!

Martena and Bob’s Royal Palms Resort & Spa wedding

Martena and Bob’s wedding oozed romance from their vows at St. Francis Xavier to the reception at the historic and elegant Royal Palms Resort . Martena had some of the best dressed bridesmaids with each lady in a metallic floor length gown of their choosing. The colors where perfect against both the pastel interiors of the church and warmth of the Royal Palms. If you know me you know I love a groom who wears a bow tie… I am not saying tying that bow tie will be easy… but I think it looks super classy and sharp on your wedding day. Friends and family flew in from around the world to celebrate with Martena and Bob. It was truly a pleasure for me to photograph such a stunning and sincere couple. Congratulations Martena and Bob!

Paula and David’s Royal Palms wedding- Phoenix, Arizona

Paula and David met on a cruise ship, a trip they were both on with their parents. A trip where everyone else on the boat was about 30 or 40+ years older them. A journey along the Mediterranean Sea is a pretty fabulous place to begin a relationship. Paula and David now both live in Washington DC so Arizona was a destination wedding for them and many of their guests including an whole contingency of family from Italy. During Paula and David’s engagement session last winter they kept me and each other laughing throughout the shoot so I knew their wedding was going to be fun. They had a unique plan for their day with a religious, and emotional, ceremony at Brophy Chapel for their close family in the early afternoon followed by a second ceremony in front of all their guests at the Royal Palms later in the day (with an In-N-Out Burger run in the middle). The historic Royal Palms is an exquisite venue for a wedding with meandering walkways around the property and views of Camelback Mountain towering above. Paula was an absolutely beautiful bride. In my previous engagement session blog post I wrote that David was rather handsome, but on his wedding day in a tuxedo and bow tie he was downright dashing. The party got going with music from the live band Sapphire Sky. One of my favorite parts of the party was when Paula and all her girlfriends danced their hearts out to Kelly Clarkson’s “Since U Been Gone.” Thank you Paula and David for including me in your wonderful wedding!
