Married! Sean & Bonnie

You know how I said in my last post that so many of the images of Bonnie and Sean’s wedding were among my favorite wedding images ever? Well, then you’ll excuse me the length of this post, right?

Bonnie & Sean’s wedding was an amazing dinner party in Phoenix, AZ. They gathered their closest family and friends and then went to town with the venue and details and food. The ceremony was one of the sweetest and most heartfelt I’ve ever witnessed. And in spite of a dust storm, high chance of rain, and a last-minute change of location (from outdoors to indoors) they never once lost their sense of humor or their cool. They were so excited to get married, I don’t think anything could’ve happened that would have made them less excited about the day.

I have to give a shout-out to Andy DeLisle, my second-shooter. He’s a fantastic photographer and is great to be around. Working with him for several hours feels a lot more like hanging out with a good friend.

First, I dropped by Sean & Bonnie’s house to hang out with the guys for a bit and watch them get purty…

Then I was off to the ceremony/reception site – The Farm at South Mountain. Since I was unfamiliar with Phoenix, I figured our destination would feature a lot of cacti, succulents, and other dry-climate vegetation. But this place was incongruous to the rest of the Arizona landscape. It was a farm in every sense of the word, with chickens and livestock and lush flower beds and beautiful trees. It was an ideal place to have a unique wedding.

Some detail shots…

The lovely flowers were done by Kristi Pohly at Fleur Decor. I especially loved the velvety green leaves and those fiddleheads!

Then it was Bonnie’s turn to get ready. Can you believe her mom made her dress?!!

Bonnie and Sean decided to do a “first look” before the wedding to take advantage of the natural light for portraits. (Too bad Mother Nature didn’t stick with that plan and sent a dust storm our way when we got everyone together!)

A few of the bridal party, who escaped most of the dust storm…

Then it was the moment we all were waiting for… time to get married!

If you remember how awesome Bonnie and Sean’s engagement session was, then you KNOW I was excited to get some shots of them as giddy newlyweds…

The rest of the evening, as described by the bride, was a “sexy dinner party,” with a little bit of dancing, lots of laughing, and close friends and family. I’ll let the rest of these images speak for themselves…

Thank you, Bonnie & Sean for letting me be a part of this wedding. It was intimate and unique and so very special… just like the two of you. Much love and happiness to you always!
