Gabriel & Bethany {Casa Grande Wedding}

Where do I even start to describe this amazingly special day? It was beautiful, crazy, fun, romantic, and most of all, a shining witness to the hand of God in the lives of these two people and their families.

The wedding was held at the cutest little farm way out in the middle of nowhere. You drive through the barren desert, but when you pull up to this place, it's like a little oasis of grass and trees and flowers! So cute!

The girls got ready in their adorable little house.

While the guys got ready in the bunkhouse that was out back.

While the bride and bridesmaids finished getting ready, we took the groomsmen pictures. Wow. What a hilarious, epic, incredible group of guys!

Cutest. Ring bearer. Ever.

Their first kiss ♥

These girls were such troopers! It was hot, and they stood in the sun and smiled and laughed like nothing was wrong! And that picture ^^ was taken in the smallest little area. See the picture below? We had a person on each side holding the bushes back so I could get a full group shot!

And then, my favorite part of the day. Just the photographers, and the bride and groom.

Bethany, girl, you are gorgeous!

Back to the reception, toasts, and dancing!

There was lots of laughter........

........and quite a few tears, too.

Gabriel danced not only with his mom, but with each of his sisters, as well.

When the time for the father/daughter dance came, Bethany and her dad surprised everyone!!

I think he enjoyed it ;)


We got a few more minutes to take pictures in the beautiful afternoon light, and I'm so glad we did.

And they're off!

Gabriel & Bethany, I am praying for God's blessing on your entire married life. Love you both so much, and thank you, thank you for allowing me to photograph your day!

  13. Have not seen such candid clear pictures. Really happy for my sister getting married next month. One of the spacious Los Angeles event venues is booked by my father. Some party favors are ordered online and some souvenirs are prepared by me. Dinner and cuisines will be served in royal palettes. Crockery color and matching glasses are our major preference. Hope all the ideas and efforts are appreciated by guests.
