When we saw Ali & Joel’s French bulldog, Harvey, show up in a bowtie, we knew their day would be unforgettable. But, it was so much more than their cute four-legged ring bearer that made their El Chorro wedding one we wouldn’t soon forget, and we were so excited to see it featured on Wedding Chicks this morning! Reliving each moment of Ali & Joel’s day gave us all the feels, all over again.

Every chance we get to work with Jennifer Thye of Imoni Events, we know we’re in for a intricately crafted day. Her attention to detail and ability to seamlessly tie every aspect of the day together is unmatched. With a French blue and desert hue color palette, she managed to make sure every detail perfectly complemented the venue, El Chorro, one of our favorite spots in Arizona. Thanks to the talent of Flower Studio, the ceremony and reception space was transformed into a dreamy lush desert garden. And let’s not forget the floral topping of the cake, that was actually made completely out of sugar!! What?! When we found that out, we had to do a double take. The attention to detail was unmatched. The crazy talented Heart Sweet Cakes created a cake that almost looked too pretty to eat! But let’s be real, knowing our sweet teeth, even a gorgeous design wouldn’t stop us from tasting the yummy!

Ali and Joel, your wedding was a perfect resemblance of the two of you as a couple. Beautiful, joyful, warm, loving and genuine. Capturing your day reminded us once again how blessed we are to call this a “job.” Your love for each other, and for your family and friends, is inspiring, and this feature just brings us right back to the joy of your day! We love you guys!!
