Kayla and Ben’s wedding day was full of love, family, and friends, and we couldn’t have been blessed with better weather on this beautiful day in April. We started out with the ladies getting ready at the Omni Tucson National Resort and Spa then the rest of the day was spent at the Oasis at Wild Horse Ranch, in Tucson, Arizona. What I love about this venue is that it is not your typical “Tucson” desert location, it is full of trees and grass and has a very tropical, Summery vibe to it… truly an oasis in the desert.
During their ceremony, the did something very unique that I would love to see more couples do… they sealed a box containing letters written to each other and a bottle of wine. It is to be opened on their 5 year anniversary, and should before that time comes, they get in an argument and their marriage is in a rough place, they are to open the box, read the notes they wrote to each other on their wedding day, drink the bottle of wine, and remember why they fell in love with each other in the first place 🙂
I love the story of how Ben proposed to Kayla: “On my birthday Ben took me to Vivace. I had a really good feeling he was going to propose since he was planning to do it at Christmas, and then at New Years, but it never worked out. We had a really nice dinner talking about our future, marriage, kids, moving, and by the end of the meal he was so nervous. His palms were all sweaty and I could feel the nervousness coming off him, it was almost making me nauseous. He waited until we were leaving the restaurant and had a waitress take a photo of us. After the first photo he said to take another and then he got down on one knee and proposed and it was all caught on camera!”
Kayla and Ben, it has been a pleasure getting to know the both of you and an honor that you chose me to document your big day. I wish you the best as you start out on your journey together!
