We were the only ones out on the golf course, the temperature quickly dropping with the sun, Camelback Mountain glowing pink behind them. The two swans in the pond dove below the surface over and over, their little tail feathers poking up above the water as the sprinklers in the distance kicked on. It was so quiet as Leigh and Peter walked hand-in-hand over the stone bridge, laughing as her veil got caught on the ground below, still taking in the fact that they were finally married. This moment felt so surreal, just the two of them with the beautiful mountain scape as the backdrop, the most magical day halfway behind them. They held each other close with his head resting on her shoulder, and time seemed to freeze. They closed their eyes as the golden sunset illuminated the trees around them, and it was an emotional and beautiful moment in time, forever captured, and surely, forever remembered.
Leigh and Peter had the most classically elegant day, starting in their ethereal church, stopping in the desert, and ending at a country club. What an honor! This group was so incredibly kind, so beautiful, so welcoming; it truly was a privilege to be a part of it all. I never wanted the day to end! Not to mention the warm Fall feelings of burgundy and gold mixed with black tuxes and feminine hints of blush…SWOON! I could go on and on about this day, but above all, it was filled with so much joy. Leigh and Peter, I could not be happier for you, and I can’t wait for you to experience the blessing of marriage and all the adventures ahead. I’m so happy you found each other, and I know you are both so aware of how worth the wait you were. Congratulations to you both!
