Kia + James had much to celebrate for the beautiful summer wedding as they both just graduated as Dentists, got married and are moving soon to start their new lives together! We started the day at the Arizona Grand Resort where they got ready and then came the first tradition of the day. James and his family are Assyrian and after the bride gets ready they have a ritual called the coming out of the bride where all the family gathers around and music is played as they celebrate the bride getting ready to get married. It was so much fun and such an awesome way to get the party started!
The ceremony was perfect and then they showered them with love and music as they walked to the party bus. There was so much excitement and happiness all around them and it was so beautiful to witness 🙂 You’ll see below why you should always include your photographer on your party bus count because everyone let’s loose and has a good time!
It was a beautiful summer wedding ceremony and the reception space was incredible. There were tall centerpieces and amazing pink up lightning all across the room that was the perfect addition. The had their grand entrance and let me tell you…I was all my wedding to have that type of grand entrance! All the guests came to the floor and entered them into their party and then we dove right into the champaign and cake…what more could you want?! For their first dance it looked like there were floating on clouds <3
I am so happy I could be apart of Kia + James’ beautiful summer wedding at the Arizona Grand Resort! Hope you enjoy a peek into their day 🙂
