She opened the glass doors as a burst of cold air drifted into the the warmth of the Arizona autumn day. The small silver charms displaying photos of her loved ones jingled against her hands from her stunning bouquet as her heart pounded and butterflies danced in her stomach. Just steps away, he was experiencing the same butterflies, taking deep breaths as he listened to her footsteps rustling in the grass behind him. His bride, the love of his life, was so close that he could feel her presence, though he was unprepared for just how beautiful she was that day. He turned around, and his eyes instantly glassed over with tears while she smiled as big as the joy in her heart felt. They hugged, and laughed, and made jokes that they may not remember one day, but this moment, this one will stay. Forever. And that is something purely incredible to witness. I’m so thankful that I got to be there.
Rosa & Justin’s wedding day flew by so quickly, and it was everything they had planned and dreamed for. From the desert rose and gold decor, to the packed dance floor and many belly laughs, it was a day I know they will never forget in the best way possible. I feel so lucky to have had a front row seat to the beauty that surrounded these two on this special day. Rosa and Justin, I’m so elated for you two, and I can’t wait to see where this next stage takes you. Here’s to many more laughs, happy tears, and no more wedding planning!! 😉 Congratulations you guys, you did it!
