Love in Greer Arizona
Finally a new blog post. Things have been a little crazy with my boys school schedule and my work schedule. It has taken a little longer then I thought to get settled in with the new school year. Anyway, lets get on to the reason for this blog. A beautiful wedding in Greer Arizona at the Red Setter Cabin!
How convenient to have a hair and makeup expert in the family. Tony's sister Nicole did Rowena's hair and makeup for her. Nicole owns Riposa Salon and Day Spa.
Greer is a special place for Tony and Rowena so why not get married there. They had a small intimate wedding along a creek side. There were concerns of rain, especially when it started up at 3:00 pm ceremony time. Only lasted for about 10 minutes, everyone helped wipe down the chairs and let the wedding begin. Look at the beautiful light over the ceremony, as if it was special ordered.
Rain started up again during the formals for just a bit, can you see it in the background? Not enough rain to damper picture taking, only lasted for a few minutes.
The cutest ring bearer and flower girl ever!!
My favorite part of the day was when Rowena was getting ready. I had asked her how she met Tony and her face lit up, big smile and she shared with me their story. The first time Rowena saw Tony was at work, instantly had a crush on Tony for two years before they dated. Rowena didn't want to make the first move, but sometime's a girl has to do what she has to. Finallly a movie date, they talked for hours and they have been together ever since.
When you have a beautiful setting such as Greer with a beautiful couple Tony and Rowena, this will make for beautiful pictures. It was a great experience to be a part of Tony and Rowena's day, along with meeting their family and friends. Not to mention getting out of the Arizona heat for a few days.
I knew when I first met with Nicole and Jason along with their family that we would work well together. They are such an easy going, fun, appreciative couple! Oh and lets not forget accommodating. I mean to have to be in Sedona from Phoenix for a start time of 8:30 am for your engagement pictures you have to get up pretty early. I am so glad they trusted me with the time and location for their engagement pictures. Everything worked out perfectly.
Lets talk about Nicole and Jason, how they met
My first wedding of 2014 was with Nicole and Chad at Encanto Park Clubhouse. This wedding was so sweet with fabulous details. I mean really fabulous details, from the location, to the bridesmaids attire and reception details. If you follow my blog regularly you know I usually do not post to many detail shots, I always photograph them, I just do not post them. For this post I am posting more then average because they were just so fun. Thank you so much Nicole and Chad for allowing me to capture your sweet wedding. It was such a great way to start 2014.
This couple, Savannah and Alec, amazing together. When we schedule pictures we knew we wanted to go up north to Flagstaff but not necessarily aiming for snow! When their shoot was a few days out and a snow storm had just gone through I was so excited. It could not have worked out better even if we had planned it this way. This shoot was so much fun starting with a stop at Starbucks. I will mention that Savannah's mom is one of my favorite people so having her with us made it that much better. I've been so bad about blogging but really wanted to make sure to share this amazing snow couple photo shoot! Enjoy!
