Cara and Howard's Wedding at the Flying V Restaurant located on the breathtaking property of Loews Ventana Canyon Resort was filled with sweet memories, warm Arizona sunshine and lots of laughter. Cara and Howard decided to finally "make it official" and knew that Tucson, AZ, where their parents loved, would provide the most perfect backdrop for an early Spring wedding - and they were right! About one week out from the wedding, the weather grew warmer and caused everything to begin to bloom, including some amazing Bougainvillea. Please enjoy these swoon worthy images captured by the lovely and talented Torey Salyer of Torey Photo.
Patty Hunter of Sauliz Floral Design listened to our Bride Cara's floral desires and truly made a lasting impression with these gorgeous arrangements. You cannot tell, but since the wedding day was predicted to be super warm, Patty went above and beyond to ensure the florals would withstand the heat, by using faux flowers on the Chuppah, not that you could tell!
The beautiful Ceremony ended with the Jewish tradition of the Groom, and the Bride, breaking the glass! Rabbi was so kind to make Bride Cara's dream of also breaking a glass in celebration of their union come true!
A huge shout out to Kim McFate of Loews Ventana Canyon and my associate event planner, Veronica Saiz, for taking such good care of these special clients. I was running a rehearsal for a wedding that was taking place the following day, but still managed to stop by and check out the reception, as I knew this would be a party I wouldn't want to miss! Cara and Howard got the party started with the George Howard Band, who kept on playing for the newlyweds and their guests, well on into the night. Cara and Howard, it was such a pleasure working with you and we are honored that you trusted us to execute your Special Day, which had been a long time in the making. Your carefree and quirky love for each other is truly something to admire. We are so happy for this next chapter in your lives and we wish you many, many more years of happiness and love!
Loved working with this fun loving couple! And thanks to Torey for such an awesome shot :)
P.S. It happened to be St. Patrick's Day and this Irish girl felt pretty "lucky" to be a part of this gorgeous Wedding!
