Erika and Bryan were living in Somerville when I met them, but early in their wedding planning process, Erika accepted a new job in Indiana. Not knowing much about that state, these two decided to switch it all up and plan their wedding in Arizona, where Erika’s parent’s live, and boy am I glad they did. I LOVE to travel for weddings- it’s an opportunity to shake up the scenery of New England and recharge my creative batteries. It’s also a treat to have a chance to bring along my fabulous husband, a filmmaker, who every once in a while will grace a client’s wedding with his presence and make some magic with me. You’ll see several of his images below.
Erika and Bryan were married at the beautiful Pine Canyon Gold Club in Flagstaff AZ. Located in the heart of the Coconino National Forrest, there’s beautiful views of Humphrey’s Peak and miles and miles of Ponderosa Pines, it’s really breathtaking. These two were able to blend their personal styles into this ranch style venue and even included a Chinese Tea ceremony for Erika’s family. I loved all the details of the day from the traditional Chinese jewelry Erika wore, to her BHLDN wedding dress and AMAZING Protea and succulent Bouquet. The dudes kept it casual in an eclectic mix of grays. Someone Creative designed chic stationary for these two and shipped everything from table numbers to ceremony handouts from Boston.
Now, I don’t know if you caught E+B’s engagement shoot in Sedona on the blog, but these two just meld into each other- it’s so obvious they truly enjoy being around one another, we had SO much fun at that shoot, two days before the wedding that we were all charged up for the wedding. I have to say I had an absolute BLAST at this wedding.
Erika + Bryan have their BABY SHOWER THIS WEEKEND. Omg. So in TRUE Studio Nouveau fashion, when I get that exciting news from couples I always say, “Oh $h*t I haven’t even blogged the wedding yet”, haha. Anywhooooo. Have a great shower in Indiana guys, I’m thinking of you both and sending so much love. Enjoy reminiscing about this amazing day.
