Wedding Wednesday
Kirsten + Weston

Kirsten + Weston

Kingsley-Wedding-insetFrom Andrew Jade Photography

The best love stories happen from the deepest friendships.

This is so true with Weston + Kirsten. From the moment we met, the first word that popped into my mind was FUN! During our first Skype call ever, when they picked up the phone, I was completely surprised! Typically my Skype calls involve the couple sitting on the couch together, or in their home office, or even in the kitchen. When Kirsten and Weston appeared on my screen, they were lounging by the pool, complete with sunglasses, fedoras, beach clothes, and the most joyful smiles I had ever seen. I loved them instantly. They informed me that they were having a stay-cation… which we quickly found out is one of their favorite things to do. The pool, a few drinks, and relaxing together. Really just BEING TOGETHER is their favorite thing. Whether it’s out riding bikes, tanning, meeting friends for dinner, or just cuddling up, being together means more to them than anything in the world.

Purple Wedding

Jenni and Fred’s Paradise Valley wedding was full of unique and beautiful touches and a lot of personality. I absolutely love shooting weddings at El Chorro Lodge because of the gorgeous landscaping and the diverse backdrops it provides for so many beautiful photos. Having Camelback Mountain as your ceremony backdrop is always a bonus!

On their wedding day, we had beautiful, bright light that made everything just glow and made their purple accent color POP. Imoni Events and Blume Events did a wonderful job designing the ceremony space and the super romantic outdoor dinner. I especially loved the wine barrels and wine glass charm details – a nod to Fred’s career in the wine and spirits industry.

After dinner, we moved inside Casa Paloma for a fun after party with delicious desserts, sexy lounge furniture and an amazing lit tree to set the mood. MT Sounds mixed up the dance music and the guests had a blast!
