I just love Alyssa and Brandon! I am so excited for them to finally be married! They have been together for more than 8 years and it all started at an Applebees.
This was a perfect day in December to get married in Scottsdale! I didn’t even need a jacket until the sun went down! I met them at a gorgeous Scottsdale home surrounded by beautiful desert to take some detail photos. I absolutely loved the color palette Alyssa went with which was perfect for a winter wedding: rose gold/pink, cranberry, and navy blue.
Then we ventured to The Sassi restaurant in Scottsdale where the ceremony would take place. Everything just fell into place at the right time!
I am so glad they opted for a first look! This is my favorite part of the wedding day when the bride and groom get to be alone and just soak it all in that they are getting married!
There was a live quartet for the processional! I was so stoked because I play the violin. The Encore Quartet did an absolutely amazing job!
During their vows-they both referenced several of the same things so you know they are meant to be. My favorite was each of them calling Brandon a space heater! That is what husbands are for!!!
I love this photo of Alyssa and her mom because Alyssa totally does this to Brandon all the time! It is so adorable!
Then we were able to get some amazing desert photos during golden hour! I am so grateful my couples are willing to adventure with me into the wilderness…there was a ton of jumping cacti so it was like a minefield! Luckily we all made it out okay!
Congrats you two! Cheers to forever!
