We walked across the light colored desert ground with Ashlie and Ricky towards a beautiful Palo Verde tree. The wall of oleander nearby was lush and dappled with white and pink blooms. Ricky stops in the shade, takes Ashlie’s hand then gives her a twirl. This was his bride to be and he was enamored. She was stunning with her flowing dress and bouquet of eucalyptus and white blooms. Just minutes before they had seen each other for the first time that day and the emotions were still bubbling over.

These two waited 5 years to tie the knot because they wanted to do it right. And we agree, whats the rush when you’re spending forever together right? We were joined there by lots of friends and family from both near and far. Chelsea warned her traveling guests that it may be hot even in September, and she was right! But as she said “Welcome to Arizona”. It was hot, almost 100 degrees
