The skies were fiercely blue on the morning of Ashlyn & Nathan’s Merlot and Navy Arizona wedding day, casting a hue of light on the Superstition mountains just outside. Ashlyn’s bridal glow was emanating from her presence and laughter with the ones she loved while she prepared to see her handsome Groom. Nathan, just nearby and looking more dapper than ever, was ready to say “I do” to the love of his life.
Doug and I first met Ashlyn & Nathan in person at their Sunset Salt River Engagement Session just a month before their wedding day. And before that, we had some “virtual” double dates via Skype, which was hard to find the time to do since there was a 20 hours time difference between Arizona and New Zealand. Yeah, you read that right. NEW ZEALAND! (To hear their story and how they met, head to their engagement blog post for the story!) But even though we had only “just met” them, we truly felt like another member of the family, cheering on an amazing couple as they commit themselves to each other. It was a beautiful day filled with tears and love and laughter at every moment.
Ashlyn & Nathan,
We needed to pinch ourselves to convince us that we were the lucky ones chosen to capture your wedding day. This monumental moment in your lives that you will look back on for years to come. You two are such a light in this world. And even though we didn’t get to spend as much time together as we wished while you were here, you better believe we’ll be visiting you in New Zealand soon! Maybe you should have rethought that invite. ;)
Best of wishes to you both.
