Devon and David

David + Devon: Mesa, Arizona Wedding Pt II

Just wanted to say a quick thank you to everyone's sweet words on Facebook :) If you haven't seen Part 1 yet, stop by there first! I have a special surprise at the end of this post ;)

And here is Part II of Devon & David's wedding...


Devon and David decided to have a first look which is always exciting. This is basically when the groom and bride have a private reveal moment before the ceremony...


I love First Looks so much because you can actually throw your arms around each other, laugh your nerves off, and not worry about a crowd of people watching you.


From the reception space, looking into the ceremony space... My Vintage Venue is such a beautiful location.


One of my many favorites..





Jillian's perspective right before the kiss...


then mine..


Clearly Devon inherited her mother's beautiful looks. Love these two :)


Rust and Lace
... they left me speechless when I saw their amazing work. I've never felt overwhelmed with where to start with details before. Which is a really amazing place to be.




And right as the sun dipped below the horizon, we took some of my absolute favorite images. Like something out of a fairy tale. I felt like I was peeking into their home as they slow danced by the light...




Time to celebrate!



Take a good look at these people here. They will teach you how to party.


A fairytale night indeed


And that is all, my lovely friends. After second shooting for so long, I can't tell you how full my heart is to be able to share with you my own weddings with more to come next year!

Ridiculous ;) So like my Imaginale Design Facebook Page -- and I can stuff your eyes with more ;) For now... we will end with this special slideshow:

David + Devon: Mesa, Arizona Wedding Pt 1




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!





So beautiful..










Part II is next with details (some truly amazing details), the first look, ceremony, and reception!
