The first wedding of the season always brings butterflies to my stomach. I’m just overly excited and nervous. I do double checks on my gear, go through my equipment checklists 800 times, go through the day and the schedule over and over in my head, and make numerous calls to KB and Jenny to make sure we are all ready to go. It happens at the beginning of every wedding season and will always happen. It has to be perfect; we can’t miss a thing; we have to be on our A game.
My first wedding of the season did not disappoint; it was perfect! Although it was a little warm, especially since it was a destination wedding and no one was from Phoenix, weddings at the Four Seasons Resort Troon North are always wonderful; And when you add a gorgeous Bride and a dashing chap Groom all the way from England, it couldn’t get any better. Laurie and Dan are just one of those couples that you can’t help but love! Their smiles brighten up a room and their love for each other is so evident in everything they do.
They actually have a really fun story of how they met. Laurie’s best friend met her husband in England and he was friends with Dan. Laurie’s friend introduced Dan to Laurie and the rest was history. The two guys from England moved over to the US and married the beautiful girls. Sounds like a fairy tale to me and when you see Laurie and Dan together, you actually feel like you are in a Fairy Tale!!
Of course, this day wouldn’t have been anything without the help from Laurie and Dan’s amazing vendors. I have to give a huge shout out to everyone who put this together and made this such a wonderful day for these two.

When I first met with Laurie she secretly showed me her dress and I was stunned. It was gorgeous and I couldn’t wait to see her in it.
These earnings were a gift from their Jeweler. He let them borrow them for the wedding and they were STUNNING on her.
The Flower Studio did an amazing job on the flowers. Laurie was thrilled when she saw them.
I love moments between sisters.
KB always gets the greatest shots of the guys!
They went wine tasting.. why do the guys always get off easy at the weddings? The girls slave and slave and the guys go and taste wine… so not fair:)
First looks are my favorite part of the day and this first look was one of the best i’ve ever seen. Laurie cried the instant she saw Dan, which made all of us start balling.. Jenny was on the steps just wiping the tears as they streamed down. This is why I LOVE first looks!
And then we headed into Portrait time. Mind you, it was 110 outside and everyone was dripping sweat.. we did quite a few inside!
This was a MUST HAVE shot for Laurie!
LOVE this angle KB got. I was down below shooting an entirely different thing.
The Flower girls were so stinkin cute!
Loved the details!
Little kids were all over and they were hilarious!
I love it when the Zurg makes an appearance at weddings. He totally helped entertain the kiddo’s along with the entire Toy Story Crew.
Isn’t Laurie’s laugh and smile contagious?
The reception was beautiful! Also, FYI, The Four Seasons makes the BEST cakes… they are always stunning!
It was a group of party dancers. The dance floor was ALWAYS filled! Great job to Mancini Entertainment for some amazing DJ power!
I had to include this picture of Cake Cutting because I LOVE the angle KB got.
While looking through the images I found a few that KB snuck of me… I thought I would share:)
