peoria arizona wedding photographer : carol + steve

Carol made an absolutely stunning bride. Steve thought the exact same as I captured his expression as they saw each other for the "First Look". As here comes the bride played, Carol slowly floated past the bamboo chair post leading to the swirly white rose petal path where she saw a bamboo alter covered in diamond like beads and water lilies handing behind here husband to be. Reverend made the ceremony perfectly fit their style, full of laughter. As the I do's were said and Reverend pronounced them husband and wife, he said, " I will give you a piece of chocolate if you kiss her right." The guest laughed as Steve's face lit up! He pulled his new wife, Carol in and "kissed her right" to earn himself a piece of Hershey chocolate.

The reception was jump started as the guest walked in in amazement when the reception room was revealed. Thee Wedding Warehouse did a fabulous job with the floral/decor! Each table contained a glass vase which held lilies, polished stones, and bamboo submerged in water surrounded by lit candles. Still starring in amazement the guest slowly found there seats at each oriental themed table. As soon as all were seated Carol and Steve began to dance their first dance. The new wife and husband looked amazing as they glided across the large dance floor with some dips and spins. Earlier in the day Steve laughed as he admitted to me he was so nervous for their first dance...awww! He was not a dancer watch-so-ever (as were Carol was)- they had been taking dance lessons and had been practicing on a choreographed dance. Steve did PERFECT as Carol whispered to him the next dance move! This soon started a dance epidemic as couples rushed to the dance floor, as Kevin with Fanning Flame Entertainment played some classic dance songs. Boy this group sure loved to dance, it just does not matter what age you are :) Once the dancing started no one could seem to stop, especially to bride!

I have to tell you that I had so much fun the entire day with Carol and Steve, there was always laugher in the air no matter what was going on- such a happy day for the both of them! And I just loved being around them as their TRUE LOVE for each other just was aglow around them. This was Carol's 1st marriage, and I was so happy for her as I knew that she had found her Prince Charming! Thank you for having me be apart of this special day, I wish you all the happiness!
