Pegah and Jefferson’s destination wedding- Cancun, Mexico

Cancun Mexico destination wedding

From the moment I met Pegah I felt like we were dear friends and I was beyond thrilled to be able to capture all the joyful and sentimental moments of her and Jefferson’s destination wedding. Cancun, Mexico became the meeting point for friends and family from all over the U.S. and world to gather and celebrate Pegah and Jefferson’s marriage. This was my first time in Cancun and the beauty of the ocean and soft white sand was astounding, I could sit and look at the changing color of the light and water forever. I had to pinch myself that I was lucky enough to photograph two amazing people in this serene inspiring environment. The ceremony was held on a picture perfect beach at the Fiesta Americana Condesa Cancún All Inclusive Resort. The wedding ceremony had a traditional Persian wedding table, sofreyé aghd, that was a gorgeous white with pops of color against the blue sky and water. After the ceremony the real fun began. I always love the Persian wedding knife dance and of course the music! The party was held under the stars at the resort overlooking the beach. Dancing, tequila shots, sweat, laughter and a groomsman in the pool at the end of the night made this a most extraordinary wedding! All my love to Pegah and Jefferson and thank you for treating me like family!

Gina and James magical Sassi Scottsdale wedding

Sassi Scottsdale wedding photography

Gina and James had the most romantic and fun wedding at Sassi in Scottsdale. Gina looked so gorgeous and I loved all her darling little flower girl helpers as she got ready. Instead of doing a “first look” together Gina and James opted for a “no look” before the ceremony. A strategically placed door and a trust exercise with James’ eyes closed made for a joyful little moment for this couple before the wedding. After the wedding ceremony it was a huge dance party and I especially liked how Gina’s ruffles disappeared for the reception. With a sparkler exit to end the night the whole day was simply perfect!

Jennifer and Nick’s Royal Palms Resort wedding

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!

Danielle and Erik’s Desert Botanical Garden in bloom wedding

Desert Botanical Garden Phoenix photographer

The Desert Botanical Garden was in bloom and the yellow of the Palo Verde trees made the garden even that much more breathtaking for Danielle and Erik’s wedding. Cat lovers, Erik was showing his love with cats both on his bow tie as well as kitty cuff links. My favorite moment while Danielle was getting ready was how emotional her niece got seeing Danielle put on her veil! The ceremony, officiated by Danielle’s sister and Erik’s brother was personal and gorgeous under a canopy of yellow. The party was so much fun with two pianos for live music! Congratulations Danielle and Erik!
