Sam and Mike are a truly one of a kind couple and wanted a unique, one of a kind wedding to showcase their love of Arizona and family!
Family and friends are very important to them, and incorporating their most important littles into their bridal party was the perfect touch. The girls all wore white lace dresses, booties, flower crowns, and custom denim jackets. They were precious!
Arizona is very close to the couples heart, so having a picturesque mountain view was very important. They fell in love with El Chorro and the views at this stunning venue. The Mountain view there is incredible and was the perfect backdrop for this amazing couples ceremony!
Together with Carte Blanche and our talented vendor team, we created a memorable day and night we will never forget. We are so lucky to call these two friends!
