Summer fun at JW Marriot Desert Ridge

This couple is just awesome! They don't live in Arizona but made it the destination to celebrate their wedding! The JW Marriot at Desert Ridge was a wonderful setting! Summer weddings in Arizona aren't always a good idea, but this couple did it perfectly! We met at 8:00am to grab a few pictures before family arrived at 9:00am. (Yes, that makes for a very early hair and makeup appointment!) The grounds were fabulous and a beautiful backdrop for some pretty amazing portraits!

After the family arrived we grabbed some fun shots. Mindy and Brandon both have 3 dynamic kids. They were all so fun together and made family pics a breeze.

The morning Ceremony was intimate and full of fun and love! Their sand ceremony was fantastic, and I loved how they were able to involve the whole family!

A quick recieving line and a delicious brunch reception, including a waffle and omlet bar! YUM!

These cake cutting pics are so cute!!

How else do you end a summer wedding? Well by going to hang at the pool of course! :)

Mindy and Brandon, Congratulations!! Your wedding was perfect! so fun and intimate and as unique as you both are! Good luck to you and your amazing family! Thank you for the honor. :)
