Watching these two commit the rest of their lives together was a beautiful occasion. Mike’s aunt, Amy, officiated their wedding. Near the end of the ceremony, the couple surprised everyone by incorporating a special moment with both of their mothers. Before Mike and Steph shared their first kiss as husband and wife, they wanted to honor their mothers by sharing one last kiss with them… cue the water works! There wasn’t a dry eye in the house 🙂
Their wedding was full of friends and family who traveled from all over the country to celebrate with them. With a vintage rustic theme, 242 Park Avenue in downtown Tucson was the perfect wedding venue to host this party. Floral pieces made of eucalyptus, garden roses, and succulents adorned the venue and bouquets, bringing the fresh scent of Arizona to this classic and timeless wedding.
Last fall I photographed Mike and Stephanie’s sunrise sweetheart engagement session in the gorgeous Tucson mountains. I knew they would be a joy to work with, as they are very sweet, authentic, and caring people. They really love, empower, and support each other, which is an amazing beginning to a beautiful relationship. I wish you both the best in your new home in Maryland and it has truly been a pleasure serving you.
