Brittany + Chris
Photographing Brittany + Chris’s beautiful Winter Wedding at Gather Estate, in Mesa, Arizona, with Atlas Rose Photography was an absolute dream!
Winter in Arizona is a special kind of gorgeous! Perfect weather during the day, and not too cold at night! A great time of year for an outdoor ceremony and reception!
Brittany & Chris were so laid back, and such a fun-in-love couple!
They were surrounded by family and friends while getting ready for their big day. Brittany’s girls had a blast in the getting ready suite – and just after she got her dress on her dad came in and got a sneak peek of his baby girl. It was such a touching moment. Tears fell, hugs were given, well wishes whispered. There wasn’t a dry eye in the room.
Chris and his dudes were looking sharp, and were having a great time relaxing while the girl’s got ready! Just before it was time for the first look, Chris got officially dressed and ready, and we set him up outside in a secluded corner of the estate to wait for his first glimpse of his bride!
Surrounded by lush greenery, Chris and Brittany shared the sweetest first look. They took their time, talked about the day, admired each other’s wedding dress and suit, and gave some tear filled kisses! Their best friends and parents could be spotted catching a sweet peek through the windows as Brittany + Chris soaked in those few special moments together and it was the sweetest thing!
When it was time for the ceremony, the band began to play, and everyone stood to watch Brittany and her daddy walk down the aisle. Even though they did a first look, the magic of the walking down the aisle moment wasn’t lost. There’s just something about a groom watching his bride walk down the aisle, and that epic moment where her dad gives her away to her husband to be. It always gives me all the feels!
After their vows were said we had some sweet family portraits, and then the party began!
One of the perks of doing a first look, is that we get extra time to to capture some bride and groom portraits before the ceremony, and can sneak in some gorgeous sunset husband and wife portraits after the ceremony! It leaves more time for enjoying the reception and celebrating with family and friends!
Their first meal as -husband and wife- was an amazing Taco Truck- with their favorite beers as the drink of the night!
I love a couple that unapologetically does their wedding their way! During the reception, their family and friends danced the night away, got photo’s done in their adorable photo booth, and adored the newlyweds!
To Brittany + Chris,
Thank you so much for allowing me to photograph your gorgeous wedding day with Megan of Atlas Rose Photography. We had an absolute blast celebrating your love, dancing with you, and enjoying some delicious tacos!!
You two are so fun in love, I didn’t stop smiling the entire day!
Best wishes for a long life of love and laughter, together!
