Nathan & Ali’s wedding was the first of the season, and we were all so excited to kick it off right with this gorgeous, grungy-but-chic wedding. The day started out with the couple and their wedding party getting ready in the uber modern and contemporary hotel, The Hotel Palomar, in Downtown Phoenix (one of our favorite places to shoot in!). Ali looked STUNNING in her lace dress. They decided to do a first look, and we switched it up a little bit by having Ali come down the stairs to see Nate – Such an emotional moment of the day! After that Ali, Nathan, and their entire wedding party hopped in a party bus and followed us around grungy and fun places in the downtown area. The ceremony and reception were held at a venue in Downtown Phoenix that we’ve been DYING to shoot at – The Icehouse! It’s so different and unique, making for some great pictures. The ceremony was touching and emotional for this sweet couple. The reception was so gorgeous and so fun to shoot – the guests definitely knew how to have a fun time! The evening ended with the couple exiting through a tunnel of sparklers, and then, in true downtown Phoenix-fashion, Ali & Nathan provided pedicab’s for their guests to be carted back to their hotels in. Love it!
