Denise & Michael’s Castle wedding

It’s not often we get to shoot weekday weddings – so it was fun to pack up all the camera gear and head to Chandler’s gorgeous Castle at Ashley Manor on a Thursday for Denise and Michael’s big day. I love this first photo – the moment when Denise peeked out the front door of the Castle for her “reveal” moment with Michael. Denise looked so stunning and timeless in her beautiful gown and cathedral length veil. Michael and Denise are both teachers and I loved them from the day I met them. Such genuine, happy people. And their families were just as much of a joy. And of course, it was great working with Jessica and Jeff at the Castle. Congratulations Denise and Michael!

Gabriela & Kevin at Villa Siena

Love the vintage look that Gabriela pulled off at her October wedding at Gilbert Arizona’s beautiful Villa Siena. So much great emotion and love that day, especially between Gabriela and her dad. And of course, her groom, Kevin. He even serenaded her as he played a special song on the violin. Even more fun was when the entire wedding party did their own rendition of Michael Jackson’s “Thriller” at their reception. Great dancing – lots of rehearsing went into perfecting that number! And always a joy working with the guys at Ray the DJ!! Congratulations Kevin and Gabriela!

Stephanie & John’s beautiful Montelucia wedding

I’ve never seen a couple so perfect for each other! And so in love. Both Culinary experts, Stephanie and John are such special people and their love for each other was so apparent from the day I met them in my studio months ago to their beautiful wedding day at Scottsdale’s beautiful Montelucia just a few weeks ago. Poor Stephanie was released from the hospital with only days to go before the big day. And was still getting over pneumonia at the wedding, but she didn’t let that spoil her day at all. She was all smiles. Congratulations John and Stephanie!!

Jennifer and Michael’s beautiful Phoenician wedding

One Fine Day Photography’s Doug Williams had a blast with this awesome couple. “I can’t tell you how fun the guys were to work with, they were fabulous!” the bride told us. The guys were Doug and one of our newest side-kicks Bryan Kincaid. Bryan has such a great eye. The guys started at the Phoenician early on the wedding day, singing tunes to help relax the bride. Family and friends – mostly from Chicago – showed the couple lots of love throughout the day and danced the night away at the Phoenician’s beautifully decorated “Windows on the Green” reception area. Congratulations Jennifer and Michael!

Holly & Jason’s beautiful Inspirador wedding!

Jason and Holly’s day finally arrived! I adore this couple. I met them a while back when they were referred to One Fine Day Photography by two other previous brides – weddings we photographed in 2006 and 2007. Thanks Courtney and Jessica!! The wedding was held at Gilbert’s beautiful and intimate new venue – the Inspirador. The ceremony was so special – Jason definitely was touched when Holly walked down the aisle. You could see the love between the two. Amazing. We also met a great new florist at the wedding – www.thegaragebyivy.com – great flowers guys! Congratulations Jason & Holly!!
