With an exclusive guest list of 18 adults and adorable nieces and a nephew, this wedding at Forest Highlands in Flagstaff was perfectly intimate. The July weather was perfection as the day averaged in the mid 70’s, just missing the rain storm the day before.
Stephanie is a friend from my corporate working days and it’s been amazing to see her climb to the top over the years. I always caught up with Stephanie while at a mutual friend’s events and was thrilled when I saw her name in my email box asking me to capture her wedding. When she described it how she envisioned the day, I absolutely couldn’t wait for the day to come – it sounded so similar to my wedding. Having only heard Scott was the perfect compliment to Stephanie, when I finally met him a month before the wedding it was confirmed. Incredibly warm and funny, Scott is a genuine and kind man that you can’t help but gravitate towards. He is engaging in conversation, light hearted and Stephanie is the exact same. It was a mutual friend from church that set them up – she explained it as a truly God ordained event as Stephanie had popped into her head when she initially met Scott. The rest, well, brings us to this sweet day.
Surrounded by love, nature, sunshine, a few friendly clouds in the sky, Scott and Stephanie made a covenant before God and surrounded by the love of family and friends. The day was full of laughter as you’ll see. What a beautiful, perfect day for a perfect lovely couple!
Many thanks to the wonderful Melissa Schollaert for her assistance.
