April + Jake's Wedding ~ Sedona, Arizona
A few days ago we posted the teaser from April and Jake's wedding, as well as the slideshow. So here are some more of our favorites from wedding.
We first met April and Jake when we shot Jessica and Charles' wedding last year. April was a bridesmaid at their beautiful wedding and decided they had to have us photograph their wedding. It was very cute because Jake caught the garter at the wedding, and April wore that same garter on her wedding for her something blue.
This was truly a family affair... there were so many details that family and friends helped with. It all came together beautifully. Jake is an artist. He makes fine art metal work as well as blown glass. His work is beautiful and he made all the center piece holders for the beautiful flowers as well as the cake stand. Jake's brother sang their first dance song. Some of the decor in matching pink and orange at the reception was put together by April's Aunt. Everything has beautiful personal touches to it!
If you're looking for a place to find your perfect wedding dress, go to Mariée in Scottsdale. April went there, upon our recommendation, and found her beautiful gown by Junko Yoshioka. I thought it fit her personality perfectly, and April of course looked stunning in it.
That fabulous cake is by Andrea at Sedona Cake Couture. The ceremony was at St. John Vianney and reception at the beautiful Creekside Inn.
Again, thanks to April and Jake. ...charming and very much in love! We enjoyed working with you both, and were so touched by your beautiful wedding day :)
These are the Mikimoto pearls that April's grandfather brought back from Japan after World War II...
