Gilbert Arizona Temple Wedding

When Sophie asked me to be her wedding photographer I was thrilled. I love the Gilbert Arizona Temple. It is so beautiful with all of its architectural details. My excitement grew exponentially when my mother made the connection that I had in fact known Sophie’s family as a child when both our families lived in Maryland! It truly is a small world! It was such a fun connection to make!

The inspiration for Sophie and Tanner’s wedding came from the desert that surrounds them. The theme of succulents and cacti were perfectly incorporated throughout the day. Sophie’s bouquet created by the talented AZflorations featured several echiveria. Sophie and Tanner chose to share a first look. I so wish this was a trend when I got married. I love that they both were able to have a quiet moment where they could be alone and honor the first time that they saw each other on their wedding day. Tanner was so excited to see Sophie, and once he turned around and saw her, he wrapped her up in a warm embrace.

After their sealing ceremony, the newlyweds were welcomed and cheered on by family and friends. I never tire seeing all the people who come from places both near and far to celebrate the union of a couple. It is humbling to see all the love and support that surrounds two individuals as they pledge themselves to each other. We were able to capture some wonderful moments that highlight the love that Sophie and Tanner share for one another. They are truly made for each other, matching Vans shoes and all. 🙂 I hope you enjoy this glimpse into their big day! Thank you Sophie and Tanner for allowing me to celebrate with you both! Congratulations!!
