Chelsea & Travis | Part 2: Scottsdale Wedding at Monterra At WestWorld

I'm a little embarrassed that it took me two months to finally get this beautiful wedding blogged, but here it is! But how fitting that it actually was exactly two months ago, on the dot, these two said "I do."

Where do I begin? Going through their photos brought back so many thoughts and memories of their special day. Emotions were high early in the afternoon as they were getting ready, but it was pure joy. The way that Travis looks at Chelsea and the way he holds her when he kisses her...now, that is how it's done guys. Take notes. The love that Chelsea has for Travis is so affectionate, but even more importantly she shows so much respect for him, and I believe that is the true foundation of any marriage.  You could hear it in their vows and you could see it all over their faces, the excitement and the anticipation of finally becoming husband and wife. And it all started when they locked eyes and met at the water fountain years ago in high school.

Their wedding day began with a heartfelt ceremony where they promised to serve each other unconditionally. It continued with an early dinner and then we ventured out to Gateway Trailhead for these photographers-dream-come-true bride and groom portraits at sunset in the desert. (Cactus, glowing golden hour, and a stunning couple...OMG!) And then we continued some more, back to their epic wedding reception that included tear-filled but hilarious toasts, a slideshow of well wishes from family and friends who couldn't attend, a fight to the floor for the bouquet toss, and some serious serious dance moves! Just check out all the twirling and dipping that was going on...their guests could get DOWN! 

Chelsea and Travis, Happy Two Months of being married. Husband and wife sure does look good on you two! Thank you for trusting me and including me in the best day ever!
