Jillian + Patrick Troon North Wedding

I met Jillian and Patrick for the first time last fall when we walked the premises of Troon North.  The two lived in Chicago, did some google searching and found my work featured on azcentral.com and booked me.  When I first met them I was instantly drawn to their friendliness and very casual fun attitude. I just knew it was going to be a fun wedding.  Then, when I found out Patrick was a UofA alum, I was sold and I knew it was going to be a really fun wedding.  And, it was.

I can’t exactly pinpoint my favorite part of the wedding.  It could have been the fact that Jillian and Patrick had their moms sign their official wedding license as witnesses, their incredibly energetic bridal party that kept me laughing for hours, or the best man speech that was one of the most entertaining I’ve ever listened to.

Patrick and Jillian, you have a wonderful, loving collection of people around you.  And, I’m pretty sure I didn’t have to tell you that.  Thank you for allowing me to capture one of your most important days and the start of your life together.  Patrick, Bear Down.

    You did a beautiful job. I know Jill and Patrick through a mutual friend (one of the bridesmaids). I’m so happy to get to see some of the images. The slideshow was fabulous as well! Thanks for sharing these. :)
