David and Ashley were married Saturday at the JW Marriott Desert Ridge on an unseasonably warm November day--93 degrees. I felt like I was shooting in September! But I didn't care--this couple was such a joy to work with. And can you believe how gorgeous they are? There were moments that I felt like I was shooting Tom Cruise and Julianne Moore's wedding--there's an uncanny resemblance. And David is totally a "jumping on the couch" kind of guy when it comes to Ashley. He clearly adores her.

The day started with some details and preparation:
Ashley customized the bottom of her Jimmy Choo shoes:
She was glowing all day.
The rings:
Ashley's mom and sister watched her get her veil on:
Sue was such a sweet mother of the bride:
David gave Ashley some beautiful earrings as a wedding day gift:
The first look was one of the most emotional I've shot.
Some portraits around the property:
I loved these hanging flowers that served as a backdrop for the ceremony:
And SO happy about it:
I loved the burnt orange and pink details at the reception:
The first dance took place on an outdoor dance floor.
The toasts were amazing. The maid of honor who is also David's sister, brought everyone to tears:
A fun shot from the garter toss:
David and Ashley also had an old-fashioned photo booth for their guests to enjoy. For the first time while working an event--I got into it myself. Aleasha--the fabulous coordinator for the event--and Cristi and Ray who made up the rest of my team also joined in the fun. The result:
Fun times.
