Carolyn & Adam's wedding was sweet, small, and elegant. Their Wedding was hosted at the beautiful Macaluso household in Phoenix Arizona. All the details were absolutely gorgeous and some even made with love and decorated by friends and family. My favorite part about photographing this wedding was that it was easy to see that the most important part of this wedding was the love that Carolyn and Adam share. It was also wonderful to see the support of their friends and family on their wedding day.
The Wedding rings were absolutely beautiful and I loved photographing them in the Arizona succulents. The girls had a blast getting ready together upstairs and I was grateful for the beautiful natural light that was flooding in! Flowers by Carlyn Millea from Blissful Bloom!
The groom and groomsmen all had matching socks and they were so FUN ... I had to photograph them! :)
They each opened up letters from each other on their wedding day while getting ready and I absolutely loved being their to see their faces glowing with joy.
I also got to spend some time photographing Carolyn with her girls in their adorable matching robes. The guys had a lot of fun pretending to push the groom into the swimming pool :) I also had a blast taking these photos in their very pretty green backyard by the pool. For all of us who live in Arizona, especially Phoenix we know that pool are absolutely necessary in the summer. Luckily the weather on their wedding day was cool and sunny with some clouds passing by.
For the first look Adam an Carolyn decided to go to Scottsdale Civic Center close to downtown Scottsdale. Originally, the ideas for the first look was in front of the "LOVE" sign but unfortunately there was a festival going on. There was a lot of people at the Scottsdale Civic Center but fortunately we found some tucked away beautiful spots for Adam and Carolyn to have some privacy for their first look.
After the first look and a few portraits by the LOVE sign we took photos of the Bridal Party at the Scottsdale Civic Center with lots of trees and beautiful backdrops.
Before the Ceremony began Adam and Carolyn gave a sweet cards and gift that brought tears to Mrs. Macaluso's eyes.
The wedding ceremony was full of smiles and love! Directly after the the whole yard was transformed into a beautiful wedding reception quickly.
The rest of the wedding was full of dancing, speeches, drinks, and happy tears, and laughter.
Carolyn & Adam,
You both have really big hearts and have the ability to make the people around you feel loved. Thank you for having me to help photograph your day!
