Oh, friends! Do we have some pretty to share with you today! This wedding has quickly become a new favorite!! We had the pleasure of shooting Ali and Joel’s gorgeous French Blue El Chorro wedding in Paradise Valley, Arizona this past weekend, which was designed by the talented Jennifer Thye of Imoni Events, alongside an amazing creative team, and we loved. every. minute. of. it.

Our photographer hearts were basically on overdrive from the moment we arrived on site

We loved the way Ali chose to incorporate a rich French blue, one of her favorite colors, into the pastel greens of the desert, with just a touch of pink. Our photographer hearts were basically on overdrive from the moment we arrived on site! The way Ali and Joel tied in the tones and textures of southwest cacti, from their watercolored invitations to their custom cookies,
all fit so seamlessly with one Arizona’s most historic venues. They really figured out how to create the perfect welcome for their mostly out-of-town guests, and it was so clear they put so much care and heart into each and every decision. (One of our favorite personal touches had to be their French bulldog, Harvey, who made an appearance dressed in his best bow tie!)

Details, decor and dogs aside, Ali and Joel were the real reason we’d been looking forward to this wedding for so long. They are such a class act. So kind, so loving, so perfect together.

Ali and Joel, we love you guys! We love your families. We love your love. From the moment we sat down at Starbucks over a year ago to hear about your story and your plans for your wedding (and your future), we couldn’t wait for this day to come. You two are kind beyond words and joyful beyond belief. Those two things alone made it an honor and pleasure to serve you all day, every step of the way. We’ve been giddy about pressing “Publish” on this blog post, because we have so many new favorites and we love the thought of you two sharing a moment on your honeymoon, reliving these moments, in a bungalow in the middle of the Pacific Ocean. We love you to Bora Bora and back! We hope you love your memories as much as we loved documenting them for you.
