The sun was shining brightly and it was warm out the day that Brenda and Vince got married and the couple couldn't be happier that the weather decided to cooperate. I joined the ladies as they got ready in the morning, all excitedly talking about the plans for the day as they had their hair and makeup done at the Orange Tree Resort located in Scottsdale, Arizona. Brenda had chosen simple, black, floor length gowns for her bridesmaids, and every single one of them looked gorgeous in them. For contrast, the ladies held simple but beautiful white flower bouquets.
Brenda looked stunning in her white and gold off the shoulder wedding dress that was accented by gold drop earrings, matching gold high heels and her long dark hair in large curls.
About one hundred and fifty family and friends of Brenda and Vince gathered at St. Maria Goretti Catholic Church for the ceremony where we were able to take many family photos, as well as photos of the smiling bride and groom and their wedding party afterwards. Before heading to The Orange Tree Golf Club for the reception we snuck off to a beautifully lush wash area that providing greenery not often seen in Arizona.
The evening was very elegantly styled with wedding colors of black, white and gold dotting the reception hall. Brenda and Vince spent time talking and mingling with their guests after their grand entrance and enjoyed speeches as well as one another's company.
After dinner, the couple shared their first dance together as husband and wife, celebrating their new vows with their friends and family who were all smiling and laughing. Rock Lobster was a wonderful cover band which everyone enjoyed rocking out to! It is wonderful to capture the joy and heartwarming feelings when photographing a wedding, and Brenda and Vince have some lovely memories to look forward to.
