Chad & Alli, Married! : Arizona Wedding Photographer
Chad and Alli are a truly special couple. It has been an honor for me to document their love story from engagement to wedding! I learned on their wedding day that Chad’s sister was actually the reason these two met and are now married. She knew Alli and thought she was the perfect match for her brother. She was correct Chad & Alli are a perfect match!
Alli smiled the entire
A friend of Alli’s decorated her “Bride” hoodie. Love!
As you will see throughout this post many of the details were created by Alli and her mom or friends. Her mom made the bouquet. Delish!
Alli’s mom also surprised her with a little message pinned into her dress.
Weddings this time of year in S. Arizona are a bit risky because the weather is unpredictable. They only thing you can predict is that it most likely will rain you just never know what time of day or night. Thankfully the rain held off for Chad & Alli’s wedding day and we were able to shoot the First Look outdoors under a cloudy sky which provided gorgeous diffused light. Chad patiently waited for Alli’s arrival.
Alli, you are crazy gorgeous!
The bridesmaid’s bouquets. Loved the elegant simplicity

Loved the non-traditional wedding cake and cream cheese frosted sugar cookies for the guests.
The Desert Swing Orchestra
provided big band music, the bride’s favorite.
The photo-wall was built by Alli’s father. The framed portraits are wedding pictures from the bride & groom’s parents, grand-parents and great-grandparents. Such a fun idea and a big hit with the guests. :)
Congratulations, Chad & Alli! Hope you are enjoying your fabulous Caribbean Cruise! Wishing you much happiness!
