Fall Engagement Sneak Peek { Amy & Rick}

Amy and Rick picked the most beautiful time in Oak Creek Canyon for their engagement session. The leaves were incredible that day!

Amy and Rick were so much fun to work with, we can't wait until their Flagstaff Ranch wedding in January.

How gorgeous is Amy's ring!?! Nice job Rick!

Amy has the most beautiful blue eyes, they are piercing!

This is one of our favorites from the day, so sweet!

Congratulations to Amy & Rick on their engagement! - Melissa & Kristen

Sedona Destination Wedding - Part 2 {Wendy & Jon}

Yesterday we shared Wendy and Jon's beautiful ceremony at Sky Ranch Lodge in Sedona, Arizona.  Today we are continuing with photos of Wendy and John and their reception at Agave of Sedona

We just love this location! The spectacular red rock views and the beautiful trails full of local vegetation. 


Wendy had both her sister and Jon's sister as her bridesmaids.

The best man could not get enough of the umbrellas!

Sweet couple, we are so happy for you!

Jon with his brother and best friend.

Wendy's mother made this adorable "just married" banner, she is so crafty!

Their beautiful ceremony was followed by a reception at Agave of Sedona.

All of the wood details were made with love by the Father of the Bride and the amazing centerpieces by Amy from Bliss Floral.

First dance as husband and wife!

Toward the end of the evening Wendy and Jon surprised their guests with their favorite treat! Such a great idea and super delicious!

Wendy and Jon's wedding was beautiful from start to finish, just look at this amazing sunset!

Sedona Destination Wedding - Part 1 {Wendy & Jon}

Kristen and I are so excited to share Wendy and Jon's wedding at Sky Ranch Lodge in Sedona, Arizona. This was the first time we had photographed at this venue and as you will see the views are spectacular! Wendy and Jon, as well as their guests, live out of state so they picked a perfect spot to show off Sedona's beauty and say I do!

Wendy started her day with the fabulous Patricia Vega at Le Petit Spa De Sedona.

  Wendy's mother made these beautiful succulent hair pins.  They look so great in her dark hair!

Patricia did a gorgeous job on Wendy's hair and makeup!

How amazing is the detail on Wendy's gown?!

Wendy all ready to meet her groom for their first look.

She looked stunning!

Jon looking dapper.

This is Wendy's something old and something blue.  She had pieces of family members wedding attire and other family heirlooms in the little pouch with the blue ribbon. 

All the boutonnieres, bouquets, and floral arrangements were created by Amy Mills at Bliss Floral.  Everything was absolutely beautiful!

Jon patiently waiting for Wendy!

I love seeing the grooms reactions at the first meeting, Jon certainly did not disappoint!

Wendy's bouquet, isn't it fantastic!?!

Wow! Look at this backdrop!

Here comes the bride!

Wendy's father made these beautiful wood signs and some other details at the reception. 

Jon was a happy groom.

First Kiss!

The happy couple! Congratulations Wendy and Jon!

So awesome! We were able to get everyone who attended the wedding in this photo.

 Stay tuned for tomorrow's Part 2!
