Fall Wedding in the Aspens | Flagstaff, AZ | Emma + Daniel

Emma reached out to me 6 weeks before her wedding day. Having officially the shortest engagement of any of our couples, it was a miracle that we had their October wedding date available. After chatting with her about her and Daniel’s relationship and their love for Jesus, I knew it would be worth it to fit them into our crazy, packed schedule, and I was right. This day was incredibly special and one of the greatest honors I’ve had as a wedding photographer.

Here are my top twelve favorite parts of Emma and Daniel’s day:

  1. The venue. Can someone say dream wedding venue? I truly might go back here for the day Josh and I want to have a vow renewal ceremony because wow. I really loved it that much. Not only was it so beautiful but the yurts were so cool.
  2. There were some of the cutest babies ever at this wedding. I was dying from baby fever all day.
  3. The bridesmaids’ dresses. Once again I’m obsessed with the mix and matching dresses!
  4. The bridesmaids. I straight up miss these girls after the wedding and want to be BFFs with all of them
  5. The bride’s blusher veil. I think this is the only time I’ve ever had a bride wear a blusher veil down the aisle and it was so fitting for this set a part couple.
  6. The bride’s dad spoke at the ceremony and prayed over the couple and it touched my heart so deeply as he blessed their marriage.
  7. The pastor gave one of the best ceremony sermons we’ve ever heard and it makes me really sad we didn’t do video for this wedding because I know I would love to back and listen to it again!
  8. The guests tossed the aspen leaves for recessional and it looked so autumnally magical
  9. The white canopy reception space. It’s not everyone’s taste but it’s one of the reasons I would literally get married here! So cozy and classic.
  10. The unique floral cake with pressed leaves. It was as beautiful as it was delicious.
  11. Because weren’t staying till the end of the night, they chose to do a sparkler entrance into the reception and it was perfect!
  12. This crowd showed off some amazing dance moves and it was a perfect end to the night
