When my lovely friend Stacey told me her sister was engaged, I immediately said “SEND HER TO ME!” because any wedding involving Stacey was a wedding I wanted to be at. I met with Dan and Lindsay to chat over coffee and I loved seeing the two of them together. They were constantly sneaking side smiles at one another and they were both so excited to tie the knot. Their wedding was at the Superstition Manor overlooking the Superstition Mountains in Mesa, Arizona.
Their day was filled with special little details like silk getting ready robes for the bride and her bridesmaids and colorful quirky socks for each of the groomsmen. Their ceremony was filled with love and sunlight and their friends and family to witness their commitment. We spent the post ceremony hour taking family photos which was so fun. Both sides had large families and each guest couldn’t wait to get a snap with the happy couple. After the family rounds, we broke away to take some photos in front of the venues gorgeous entrance and fountain. If you haven’t visited this location, you simply must. It’s so so stunning.
We headed into the reception and after the salad, we all snuck away for a moment to take more photos over the mountains. The reception was packed with games and special moments. I loved seeing their proposal video which involved Dan and his friends planning an elaborate Oceanside surprise proposal for Lindsay. I loved hearing the toasts and seeing what those closest to the bride and groom had to say about their friends. It was heartwarming beyond belief. And lastly, I loved dancing, like at any wedding and catching the sparkler exit at the very end. This was such a fun day and such a great party! Thank you Dan and Lindsay for having me there for your fabulous wedding! Wishing you every happiness and more! xoxo
Hey. Do you mind if I tell you a story? One you might not have heard. All the elements in your body were forged many many millions of years ago in the heart of a faraway star that exploded and died. That explosion scattered those elements across the desolations of deep space. After so, so many millions of years, these elements came together to form new stars and new planets. And on and on it went. The elements came together and burst apart, forming shoes and ships and sealing wax and cabbages and kings. Until, eventually, they came together to make you. You are unique in the universe. There is only one of you. And there will never be another.
