As I walked into the hotel where Devon was getting ready, little Phoenix came running up to me. I wanted to drop my equipment right there and just hug her. I've said it before and will say it again... I adore Devon and David's family. Their wedding is so special to me in so many ways. I've been counting down the days to share these images will you all. A special thanks to my amazing second shooter Jillian Murphy and always, to my loving husband for a third set of hands.
Phoenix is David's (and now) Devon's daughter. I posted this image a couple of weeks ago on my Facebook page and mentioned it's one of my favorites simply for the fact that I can see this moment happening when Phoenix gets married one day.
Phoenix is a magnet to anything pink. She is quite the girly girl :)
Every now and then I would catch Devon's mom trying to hold back tears as Devon was dressing. Her eyes literally brimming, watching Devon with admiration and so much love. Devon's mom has a beautiful heart!
Is it me or does Devon look a little like a Spanish princess? ;)
This girl thought of every detail. A bride after my own heart!
Part II is next with details (some truly amazing details), the first look, ceremony, and reception!
