You know those couples that are so in love that you can’t help but feel inspired by their devotion to each other? That is how I felt when I listened to the sweet vows these two shared with each other. I was so touched when Bella listed the qualities she loves and admires in Mikey. She spoke of her parent’s example and her determination to wait for a worthy and righteous companion. Likewise, Mikey shared his tender feelings for Bella in such a way that you could feel that this truly is a special couple.
For Bella and Mikey their love started when Bella heard Mikey giving a sermon at church. From there, the two began dating, and quickly realized that they were supposed to do life together as husband and wife. These two were sealed at the Tucson Arizona Temple and then an intimate ring ceremony was held at her grandparent’s Mount Lemmon estate followed by their beautiful reception. I was in awe of all the love and talent that went into creating their reception. From the romantic lights, to the exquisite floral arrangements, everywhere you looked was gorgeous! Tokens of love were seen throughout the entire day as well.
The ring that Bella wore belonged to Mikey’s grandmother. Her Sophia Webster shoes were a gift from a childhood friend and the necklace she wore was a gift from her cousin, someone whom Bella sees as a role model in her life. She shared with me that her mother’s signature scent growing up was Chanel Mademoiselle, the same perfume she chose to wear on her wedding day. The earrings she wore were a gift her mother had received on her sixteenth birthday. I was humbled to see how deeply Bella and Mikey loved their families.
A favorite moment of the night was watching three generations slow dancing with their eternal companions- Bella’s grandparents, parents, and Bella and Mikey. A more comical event of the evening was when the garter got stuck up in the trees during the garter toss! However, boys will be boys, and they worked together to get it down! I am so grateful I was able to capture Bella and Mikey’s wedding day. It warms my heart and feeds my soul to capture the love that surrounds a couple as they begin their lives together! Congratulations you two!!
