Gary + Kris celebrated their marriage at Tapatio Cliffs in Phoenix, Arizona. Like a lot of couples these days they met online. About a year later, Gary dropped to his knee and proposed to Kris privately, just the way she had always hoped it would be. They planned a romantic ceremony with a waterfall backdrop surrounded by their family and friends and a poolside reception enhanced by the mood of floating candles and twinkling lights. But first, we met up with them for their Engagement Session.
Kris's dress had beautiful appliquéd florals and a bolero jacket custom made by a family friend out of the fabric leftovers from her alterations. One of her favorite parts of the dress were the invisible pockets! When Gary popped the question he took great pride in the one of a kind ring he had chosen for his bride and they made sure to have bands made that were equally gorgeous!
Every engaged woman dreams of the ways to make her wedding as unique as the love she shares with her groom and Kris took this in stride. Every decision they made for their day spoke loud and clear to the importance of this day for them. They emanated pure delight in becoming husband and wife! They were joyful.
Their poolside reception began at dusk and turned into the romantic and relaxed atmosphere they had planned. Gary wrote a speech about his bride incorporating his favorite song titles. It was funny and adorable. David Hoyt Entertainment recounted their love story for all their guests and the night was capped off with some dazzling sparkler photos!
We love it when a couple make such personal choices for their wedding day and Gary and Kris were uniquely special! We loved every minute of it.
