Sara and Ollie’s Christ Church ceremony was romantic and breathtaking with a thoughtfully spoken mass and sentimental readings from their bridal party. With Blue Hills Photo behind the lens, the happy couple hopped into their stretch limo with their bridal party to their reception at the lovely Desert Botanical Garden.
The Desert Botanical Gardens has amazing views of Arizona cactus features and beautiful light shining down as the sun was setting. Capturing their new love as newlyweds, we strolled through the gardens as they playfully did their bridal portraits. Then they had their grand entrance, which quickly lead into their first dance. Up above their heads in the circular outside reception area were hanging star lights, a fitting setting that was surrounded by the desert gardens.
Guests gathered succulent escort cards and found their way to tables named after locations where the couple had shared time together. The best man and both maid/maidens of honor gave their speeches of great childhood memories of each and their fondest memories together. Next was a conga line, parent dances, the newlywed game and lots of great dancing to close out the evening.
Thanks for stopping by!
