Russ and Selena got married Saturday at the Mesa LDS Temple with the reception following at Trilogy at Vistancia. The temperature for the day here in Phoenix maxed out at 110 but we stayed inside for most of the day so that helped a lot.

The day started out with some preparation with the girls:
Selena is just so stinkin' gorgeous and photogenic.
I loved the colors Selena picked.
Then we headed over to the temple.
And shot a couple portraits before Selena and Russ headed in for their ceremony.
After a nice 2 hour break, they emerged married!
Posing for grandpa--SO cute:
Gotta get the shot with the whole group in front of the temple!
More cuteness:
Later in the day, after a luncheon, we headed across town for the reception and shot a marathon of portraits.

Beautiful Selena:
The lobby at Trilogy offered some fun, brightly colored furniture and also great air conditioning so we decided to make use. I love this sophisticated shot:
The groomsmen were a wild bunch. Here they are in one of their tamer moments:
Playing pool:
I loved the bridesmaids' dresses. They were perfectly suited to flatter the two pregnant women in the bunch.
Selena's family enjoys silliness. Here's an example with her dad:
All of the details of the reception were so well-done.
They even printed up six 20x30 prints from their bridal shoot that happened 2 days prior:
I'm not sure about the story behind this cut-out but was intrigued. I assume she wasn't able to make it to the wedding?
The first dance:
Some fun shots from the photo booth:
And one last shot of the beautiful ballroom at Trilogy:
Thanks Selena & Russ! You guys are so great! I wish you a lifetime of happiness!
