Juan and Mary tied the know at Villa Siena in Gilbert, Arizona this past November and their wedding was nothing short of a real life fairytale. I had been looking forward to their big day for almost a year now. From our first consultation I was already crossing my fingers hoping that we would end up working together. They are so genuine and kind, just some of the best people you’ll ever meet.
From their engagement session Juan was so attentive to Mary and was completely focused on her and his son, whom may I add is the most handsome boy, just wait and see! They trusted me completely and their engagement session is one of my favorites to this day. Mary well of course is stunning! The wore the perfect floral dress which really complemented the incredible location of their session. Fast forward several months to their wedding day I nearly fainted when I saw her walk down the aisle!
The entire day was my favorite but if I had to pick the top 3 I would start by the ceremony, the florals and details at their altar were breathtaking! The fountain in the middle at the aisle filled with petals was just so beautiful and guys they had VIOLINISTS playing as Mary walked down the aisle! Seriously a dream come true for me, to all my future brides please opt for live music for your ceremony it’s so beautiful and such an intimate detail! Second, would be their bride and groom formals the way they’re both able to be themselves in from of the camera is a rare find in some couples. Sure I totally help with the posing but you can’t fake the genuine love these two have for each other. Last, but definitely not least is their first dance! I mean the first dance is always one of my favorite parts of any of my weddings and theirs is no exception.
To Juan and Mary, thank you so much for allowing me to witness the beginning of the rest of your lives! You guys are such a sweet and kind family I am honored to have been able to capture such an important day. Your happiness is contagious and I loved being surrounded by it during your big day. Cheers to many more incredible decades of love and adventure!
