From the Bride:Our wedding was held during the summer in Mesa Arizona in the backyard of a gorgeous brick manor that was consumed by lush gardens. My husband and I wanted a classic, American backyard wedding that was still glamorous and sophisticated. The perfectly kept lawns were adorned with twinkling lights, flowers and lanterns hanging from the trees which gave the grounds a beautiful look.On the Venue: Stonebridge Manor has two stunning wedding venues, the Manor Courtyard and the Garden Pavilion. Their four-acre property features a gorgeous estate brimming with old-world charm, as well as immaculate gardens. Not only is Stonebridge Manor a gorgeous venue, but they also offer a range of wedding services including photography and fresh florals!
If we could give one piece of advice it would be to hire a videographer along with a photographer. We swoon over our photos and videos all the time and they are truly priceless to us. We can't wait to share them with our children and grandchildren one day!Not only was Vanessa Dunn there to film every miraculous moment of Sidney and Zak's special day, but she also created a video about their love story that was shown during the reception! Check it out.
We had the reception in a big white tent hidden in vines and flower gardens in the backyard of this magnificent home. Inside the tent was a lovely pink wonderland. From the vintage mismatched china, to the black and white striped table runners and laced mason jars full of fresh peonies and hydrangeas - the space was to die for.
For dessert we had three mini cakes on pedestals with pink lemonade served in mason jars that guests could take home with them as a wedding favor. We ended the evening with a grand exit through a line of sparklers and into a Roles Royce getaway car that made us feel like royalty.

Zakary and I met on a blind date to the drive-in movies when we were seniors in high school. Little did we know we would become high school sweethearts years down the road. We went on to attend college together and shortly knew we would one day get married.
Zakary proposed in Catalina Island on a breathtaking hill overlooking the ocean at sunset. It was beautiful! We had a year long engagement, and just after graduating college we tied the knot. It was such a lovely day. And we're still pinching ourselves thinking it was a dream!
Advice From the Bride:There isn't anything we would have done differently. But I think a piece of advice I would give to other brides to be is not get too worked up about the details. I think I was a little too stressed out the week before our big day, and even though everything came together perfectly, I should relaxed a little more. Everything will come together in the end, and with trusted vendors you're wedding day will be everything you could have dreamed of and more!
