You may remember Erica & Kevin’s black tie Omni Montelucia wedding because of their classic blush, gold and ivory details. And we were beyond excited to see those details on the Black Tie Bride this week!
What can we say about these gorgeous details? The always incredible Charlee Geisler sprinkled her pixy dust and the result was pure magic. You would never know that outside the doors of the ceremony and reception spaces was a scorching Arizona heat! The creative team, bridal party and our bride and groom handled the heat with such grace and joy. And can we talk about Erica’s bouquet? And the florals down the aisle, up the cake, and surrounding each table?! Flower Studio, you have such a gift of using your florals to create a dream. Each detail was perfectly in place.
When we think of Erica and Kevin’s day though, we will always remember it by the moment the day stopped. It was the sweetest story of Facetiming their Papa. Their Papa did his best to get strong enough to be there to witness their vows, but that just wasn’t in the cards. So Erica and Kevin stopped everything in the middle of the day to FaceTime him. That’s when you just know you have the best couples out there. When they think more about other people on their day. When the most important detail of the day was carving out a few minutes to talk with Papa who couldn’t be there to see them say “I Do.” He got to see Erica’s dress, give them a few pieces of advice, and requests LOTS of 4×6 pictures that he loves so much.
Isn’t that why we do what we do? We capture these moments so that Papa can hold as many 4×6 images in his hands as his heart desires. So that years from now, Erica and Kevin’s granddaughter will hold those same photos in her hands and feel the same emotions as Papa. Erica and Kevin, thank you for allowing us to capture those moments. It was such an honor. An even bigger honor was meeting Papa through the screen. We love you guys!!
