Chris and Rena’s Surprise Desert Folktale | Scottsdale Wedding Photographer


September 8, 2014

When Chris and Rena contacted me late last year to book their wedding date, I was over the moon excited because not only was it going to be a small intimate elopement, it was also a surprise. Rena & Chris were planning on marrying over the Christmas holiday when they were visiting family in Scottsdale, escaping the snowy Canadian winter.  They wed on Boxing Day, surrounded by their closest friends and family. The maid of honor flew in earlier that morning. It was a perfect Arizona December day, sunny, bright and warm. The details were simple and perfect, the bouquets were bought and put together the morning of the ceremony by the bride and her best friend (and MOH).  Surrounded by a small group of their favorite people and their dog Oreo, they said their I-do’s in one of the most relaxed yet intimate wedding ceremonies I have ever had the privilege of attending! Thanks so much for letting me be a part of your day!
