What a beautiful couple and accomplished too!  Both Michelle and Trung are professional athletes, with Michelle having won the gold medal twice, once in 2005 and again in 2007, at the World Championships in Athletics in the 100 m hurdles, and Trung having been a first round draft pick out of Arizona in 2000 and going on to become a running back in the NFL, first with the St. Louis Rams and finally with the Washington Redskins.

Michelle and Trung began their journey together a decade ago and have a beautiful baby boy together.  They finally made everything official the past November.  Their wedding was held at the Castle at Ashley Manor in Chandler, Arizona.  The day was nothing short of perfect and we are so happy for these two.  Their love for one another, their son and their families and friends is so transparent that you couldn't help but get swept up in all the emotions of the day!  It was such an honor to be chosen as the wedding photographers for this amazing event!

After getting married at the San Diego Mormon Temple in California, Kendell and Chris headed back to Arizona where they held their reception two days later on May 19th, 2012.  The festivities took place at Kendell's father's fly-in in Chandler and was so much fun to be a part of.  Again, we can't thank you two enough for having us as your wedding photographers!  We wish you all the best in life!

Special thank you to Yvonne Chereck for second shooting for us!  We also need to make mention again of what a fantastic job Jessica Gelder of Sweet Soiree did planning this wonderful event!

Such beautiful photos, love the one of the bride and groom walking in the sunset!

Jessica and Craig were married February 26, 2010 at the Castle at Ashley Manor in Chandler, Arizona.  This was a beautiful wedding and a perfect day in all repects including the gorgeous weather!!  I loved all the details, including the pink theme.  I am not the biggest fan of pink, which is rather ironic since I wore a pink dress for my own wedding, but the various hues of pink in this wedding were used to perfection and wonderfully complimented the magical atmosphere of the venue!  Oh, by the way, I LOVED Jessica's totally cool shoes ... awesome!!  Thank you both for having us as your wedding photographers.  We had such a great time and we hope you loved your honeymoon to the Dominican Republic :-)!

Michele and Eric were married November 21, 2009.  Their traditional Jewish ceremony took place at Temple Emanuel and their reception was held at Ashley Manor.  This was a beautiful wedding and we simply love the couple (we had a fantastic time with them at their engagement shoot in Flagstaff ... they were soooo funny.)  That humor definitely showed itself again on the wedding day and we just had a blast.

 

Thank you both for having us as your wedding photographers and for including us in your special day!  We also want to thank you for the wonderful review you wrote for us on Wedding Wire ... it was so sweet of you!!

Sarah and Brady were married on January 9th, 2010 at the Castle at Ashley Manor in Chandler.  It was a beautiful day with mild temperatures and plenty of sunshine ... what else would you expect though from the valley of the sun in winter.

 

We have really enjoyed working with this couple since they booked us last year (the engagement shoot was a ton of fun) and have been eagerly anticipating this wedding!  It was all I had imagined, with beautiful decorations and details, a stunning couple, gracious (and fun) family and friends and a rockin reception!  Thank you Sarah and Brady for having us as your wedding photographers.  We are looking forward to the trash-the-dress shoot :-)!

 

My good friend and very talented wedding photographer, Melissa Dunstan, went along on this one as the second shooter.  We had such a blast working together and we even took a moment to have photos taken in the photo booth ... LOVE those :-).  Thanks Melissa for all your hard work!!

 

Love Sarah's dress and red shoes ... all the girls wore red shoes too.

This is one of my favorite photos!!  It looks more like a painting than a photograph.
1-9-10SBWed03.jpg
1-9-10SBWed04.jpg
Sarah's team: the Detroit Red Wings and Brady's team: the St. Louis Cardinals ... you will be seeing a lot of this throughout the wedding :-)!
1-9-10SBWed05.jpg
This is adorable :-).  Sarah's friend set this up to take a photo.

Again, so cute!!
1-9-10SBWed13.jpg
Sarah's walk down the aisle got emotional for everyone.
1-9-10SBWed14.jpg
Brady had a hard time holding back the tears.
1-9-10SBWed15.jpg

These guys were such hams :-) ... just hilarious!!
1-9-10SBWed31.jpg
More red shoes and humor.
1-9-10SBWed32.jpg
How cute is this shot ... we didn't expect the smallest girl in the bridal party to walk with everyone, but she did and it was great!!!  Only problem was, she didn't want to turn around :-).
1-9-10SBWed33.jpg
1-9-10SBWed34.jpg
What a beautiful setting!

OK ... as you can see, Melissa and I got in on the photo booth fun.  I am on the left in the stunning, and I might add chic, leopard pimp hat and Melissa is on the right in the flamboyant, hooker pink feather boa.  We make quite a pair, don't we??!!  And look at Sarah and Brady ... I love photo booths with props!!

This little girl could sing ... she was AMAZING to listen to!!
1-9-10SBWed54.jpg
How funny is this guy ... I think he robbed the prop box from the photo booth ... I hope :-)! 
1-9-10SBWed55.jpg
Gotta love when people really get into the "Thriller" song :-) ... AWESOME!
1-9-10SBWed56.jpg
1-9-10SBWed57.jpg
These two are so funny!!

Pam and Andrew were married September 28th - yes, that was a Monday and it seems like Monday weddings are becoming more and more popular :-)!  They chose to have their ceremony and reception at the Castle at Ashley Manor in Chandler.  The same heat wave that was hovering over Mexico the previous weekend was also hovering over Phoenix with no signs of letting up.  I believe the temperature was a record 107 degrees that day.  Luckily, only parts of the wedding were held outside so it didn't bother anyone too much!

 

The one thing I want to say about this couple besides the fact that we just really liked them both and they were wonderful to work with, is that their love and devotion to each other was so remarkably strong and endearing.  They were so sweet together and the outpouring of emotions between them as well as from their family and guests was unbelievably touching!  Thank you both so much for including us in your very special day!

Payvand and Jeremy were married on April 25th at the Hilton in Chandler.  They had a traditional Persian Ceremony and it was simply breathtaking!!!  We absolutely adore photographing cultural ceremonies!  It is a wonderful way to learn about and experience the customs and traditions of other cultures throughout the world.

 

The sofreh table is the most ornate component in the persian wedding and this one was made by Payvand's mother, who did a beautiful job.  Some components of the sofreh table include the Mirror (of fate) "Aayeneh-ye Bakht" and two Candelabras (representing the bride and groom and brightness in their future) placed on either side of the mirror.  The mirror and candelabras are symbolic of light and fire, two very important elements in the Zoroastrian culture.  When the bride enters the room her veil is covering her face and when she sits down and the veil is removed the first thing the groom should see in the mirror is the reflection of his bride-to-be.  The sofreh is also decorated with a multitude of grains, nuts and spices each with it's own symbolic meaning.

 

Other notable components of the ceremony include a shawl of fine fabric held over the couple's heads by happily married female relatives and two sugar cones "Kalleh Ghand" made out of hardened sugar which are grinded together over the bride and groom's head (over the shawl held above their heads) throughout the ceremony to shower them in sugar, symbolizing sweetness and happiness.  A cup of honey to sweeten life is set on the sofreh and immediately after the couple is married they each dip a pinky finger in the honey and feed it to one another.

 

Payvand and Jeremy, let us start by saying you make an absolutely stunning couple.  It was truly our pleasure to not only be your wedding photographers but to take part in such a magnificent event.  Thank you for the opportunity!!  Hope you enjoy the photos ... there are sooo many more where these came from :-)!!!

 

Payvand's dress was Exquisite!!

I first want to start by saying that I am very, very, very behind on my blogging and for those of you who are patiently waiting to view your posting, thank you for waiting.  I am under a lot of deadlines right now and will be getting everyones events posted as soon as I can :-).

 

Now for Margarita and Ramon's wedding!!  We have been waiting for this one for a long time.  It was originally going to be held last March, but due to an injury in the family it had to be postponed.  The new date ... Halloween :-).  They played it up though and incorporated some good old-fashioned halloween fun into it without making it an out-and-out halloween themed event (gotta love the costumes and the couple from the wedding party dancing in to the song "Thriller" by Michael Jackson, when they were announced.)

 

The wedding was held at Ashley Manor in Chandler, AZ.  It was a beautiful day and the actual theme was that of Cinderella.  We absolutely love this couple ... they are two of the most genuine people we have ever met!!

 

Margarita, you were just lovely and Ramon, you were equally handsome.  Thank you both so much for not only having us as your wedding photographers, but for inviting us to be a part of your event.  We had a great time and we couldn't think of a better way to spend Halloween!  Thanks too for the really sweet card and bottle of wine - you are so thoughtful!!!

This is our favorite photo ... seriously, look at how overwhelmed Ramon was when he got his first look at Margarita ... it brought tears to our eyes :-).
