The beautiful El Chorro made the perfect backdrop for Adam + Kristen’s I do’s under the Arizona sun. With shades of blush and gold throughout, they reached a whole new level of romance with their stylish nuptials and candle lit reception. SWOON!
From the bride: Hiring a wedding planner was the best investment I’ve ever made. Luckily I found an amazing one in Ashley Gain, who also became my friend, but she helped me stay organized, focused and calm. It was so nice to have someone to go to who had all the answers.
Soak It All In
One of my favorite moment besides “I now pronounce you husband and wife” was per the advice of our wedding planner. She told us when we’re up in front of everyone to turn around and look at our guests. It was so cool to look at all of our friends and family who have been with us forever. Such an overwhelming feeling to have all those people there supporting us as we step into marriage together.
Enjoy Every Moment
Ashley told me this piece of advice and I’ve told it to everyone I know who’s gotten engaged; Remember after the wedding, you get to be married for the rest of your life. This helped me when I was super stressed about the little things like candles and center pieces. To bring myself back to earth during the whole wedding process and remember that I was marrying my love, made the process so much more enjoyable.
The First Dance
My second favorite moment was our first dance. We had one of our groomsman and Adam’s best friend sing it. It was such a wonderful moment that was super personal to us.
