Sara and Thomas got married on a cold day in December at the Gilbert Arizona LDS Temple. We met early to take the "First Look" photos and some bridals before the ceremony. It was overcast and chilly but the warmth between them radiated everywhere. They adore each other and I felt it such a pleasure to photograph the beginning of what is sure to be a beautiful life together.
We started the day early at the Mesa, AZ temple. We wanted to get the Bride and Groom shots in before the heat really set in. It was a record breaking hot day. But for some reason, it didn't really feel "THAT" bad. I think everyone was just happy to be there and celebrate these two and their union. They both looked amazing and the temple grounds were really shining that day in the soft morning light. Then they went to their ceremony inside the temple. After the temple we got a huge group shot of the close friends and family there and we were off. The Wright House in Mesa hosted the luncheon and the reception. The reception was a huge fiesta with piñata, candy, dancing, fresh tacos and more. Such a fun twist to a reception and it made for a memorable night. So happy I got to be a part of all of these festivities with taking these photos and doing the floral decorations. It was honestly a blast. Weddings are just the best. Congrats to the Ryans!
