As the summer sun begins to mellow, and the desert landscape takes on a warm, golden hue, there’s no better time to celebrate Josh and Amanda’s love than during a Fall wedding at Colby Falls Venue in Mesa, Arizona. The excitement is in the air and the atmosphere is imbued with the promise of new beginnings. Against the backdrop of beautiful falls, a stunning sunny glow, and the soft sound of their family and friends laughter, the official beginning of their love story as Husband and Wife unfolded in a truly magical setting.
Amanda began her day with her best friends getting glammed up by their amazing Hair and Makeup artist team, Bella Bridal Beauty. We began our day there with her too, capturing her beautiful details, stunning bridal gown from Ivory Row, and the sheer joy and love of her girlfriends surrounding her!
Josh began his day getting ready at Colby Falls, with his best friends and family as he anxiously awaited his first look with his soon to be bride!
Amanda and her girls got in their dresses in the beautiful bridal suite at Colby Falls. Her best friend and her mom helped her into her dress, soaking in these sweet moments together. Her bridesmaids came in to see how absolutely beautiful she looked! Amanda nervously awaited seeing Josh for their first look.
We found a private corner with gorgeous greens and violets surrounding them for their first look with one another. Amanda sweetly tapped Josh on the shoulder, and when he turned to see her she was beaming with joy and happiness! Josh was overtaken with emotion at her beauty. Overcome with the happiness of seeing each other, they embraced, and soaked in the moment together.
They wrote private vows to one another, that they wanted to read with just the two of them. Exchanging intimate vows, looking into one another’s eyes, and feeling all the feels, they truly took the time to cherish these moments.
They took intentional time to enjoy all their hard work and planning over the last year. They could finally see their vision come to life. Gorgeous Fall themed florals by In Bloom not only were cascading down her gorgeous bridal bouquet, they were on all the guest tables, the ceremony space, and adorning their beautiful Wedding Cake by Piece of Cake AZ.
When Ceremony time came, Amanda put on her veil before she came down the aisle to marry her best friend. Her dad lovingly walked her down to her future husband, and gave his baby girl away to the man of her dreams.
They shared handwritten vows that made their family and friends both emotional, and full of laughter. When they officially were announced as Mr + Mrs, the people they love most cheered for them as they kissed with joy and love!
They celebrated and truly danced the night away! The dance floor never stopped as guests enjoyed the music, the signature drinks, and the photo booth!
An intimate sparkler sendoff awaited them. Surrounded by their bridal party, they kissed and laughed under the glow, ending the best night of their lives. The one where they became Husband and Wife.
