Andrea had contacted me awhile back to take portraits for her, but for some reason we never got around to it, so I loved when I got an email from her again that said, “This time I want to schedule you for sure, but for my wedding! I just got engaged!”. I love emails like that and I always get a really big smile on my face!
Andrea & Todd were married at the Sanctuary Resort in Scottsdale, AZ. It was seriously a perfect day; not too hot – not to cold. The atmosphere was relaxed and easy going! Andrea got ready in her gorgeous suite with her very fun and awesome daughter, Maddie. Maddie brought so much energy to the room and I’ve loved getting to know her, along with Andrea – Maddie’s fingernails and toes were amazing, and totally coordinated with the colors of the wedding. Todd got ready at the Camelback Inn with his guys and Rachel caught some great getting ready pictures of him!!
The ceremony was so sweet and perfect. Andrea and Todd included Maddie in the ceremony and Todd gave her a necklace with pictures of them all in it. I totally cried when Maddie wrapped her arms around Todd and hugged him tightly. You can tell she adores him with everything and he loves her as well.
The reception was AMAZING! They partied and danced all night long, with the kids having their own cocktail hour and section of the reception room. Maddie and the kids danced the night away with all of the adults and there was a ton of fun had!
A huge thank you to all the vendors who made this a perfect day! Rhonda Rush, with Impact Events, was such a huge help before, during, and after the wedding. Loved working with her from start to finish on this event!
