Sorry for the hiatus folks, but the truth is that I’ve been dealing with the flower fiasco. You all thought it was over, and I did too. I’ve been told 3 times that my refund check is in the mail and once they even refunded it back to my credit card, which is no longer in service since I’m married and I changed my account. OY! Anyway let’s dwell on some more entertaining things…
Our reception came out perfectly as planned, despite the flower fiasco, my hair, and our makeup artist situations. We trucked it over to the Patio de Las Campanas and made our grand entrance…
We got to look down at everyone and the beautiful setup….
Then of course there was the first dance… During our first dance the clouds kept moving producing some beautiful shots.
The night ended with an after party at my In Law’s place. I don’t have any photos but it was the most fabulous night I have ever had. I couldn’t have been happier. Up next I’m going to share some family photos and some of my favorites of us.
So this is what I’ve really wanted to share with you all. The beautiful chapel where we got married 46 days ago. Yes I did the math darnit. I should preface this by saying if you have a gorgeous venue you needn’t add much. This chapel with it’s hand painted fresco and beautiful architecture needed nothing. That being said I rented the altar candles and had the florist sprinkle petals, the rest is there naturally and I can take no credit.
You may now kiss the bride…
With that the ceremony was over and Phoenix’s “1901” came blaring on and I looked at Mr. AZ as my husband for the first time.
I really got a kick out of the “equal opportunity” bit in our ceremony. I wasn’t expecting it, and I think I giggled as I grabbed Mr. AZ to lay another big smooch on him. Did your officiant throw in anything fun?
I know I said I’d start wedding recaps, but hey- let’s start at the rehearsal. It was kind of funny, since we had such a small wedding over half our guest list was present for the rehearsal. I have some funny pictures to share from that experience… firstly what the heck is Mr. AZ doing in this photo?
This is when we had to step together, boy was that harder than it sounded!
And of course the gratuitous adorable-flower-girl shot. Look at her 3 year old Sassy face!
Then our families, ourselves and our bridal party headed over to Joey Bistro for an excellent rehearsal dinner. Sorry no pictures of us or of the food, just the beautiful company!
In case you were wondering about the young man with the thumbs up sign and the sunburnt face that would be my little brother… he got sun burned the day before the wedding. Oh well C’est le vie! On Monday we’re going full-throttle into wedding recaps. I promise this time. The food was phenomenal by the way, if you’re ever in Sedona try Joey Bistro at Los Abrigados- their cannolis are to DIE for. Literally I would die for one right now.
What did you love about your rehearsal? Did you also freak out about “walking in step”? Thank goodness for long dresses, that’s all I have to say!
