Anna & Ryan – wedding at the Desert Botanical Gardens

Anna & Ryan – wedding at the Desert Botanical Gardens

When the amazing wedding planning team at Meant2Be Events introduced us to Anna & Ryan, we knew we were in for a fun time.  A beautiful Desert Botanical Gardens wedding followed by a reception at the new Showcase Room in Tempe with an incredible couple who are super in love – yes please!  It is so uplifting to be around real love and family that makes each other laugh.  Anna & Ryan were so all over each other, and made our jobs so easy.  They opted to not do a first look and instead stay traditional in hopes that they might get a good sunset for their portraits.  What they got was not only good, it was perhaps the most colorful sunset of the year, and it made for an incredible backdrop!  They ended the wedding dancing the night away with family and friends, and celebrating their love with laughs and tears during the toasts.  It was truly a beautiful wedding to witness.

I’d like to give a huge thank you to our good friend and incredible photographer, Katrina Wallace, who helped me rock out this wedding while Kelly was shooting in Colombia.  You were amazing to be there when we needed you!  Please check out her work at KatrinaWallace.com!

Also, a huge thank you to Meant2Be Events for introducing us to Anna & Ryan and for putting together yet another incredible wedding!
