Michael & Rochelle | A Farm at South Mountain Wedding
This blog post is WAY overdue but I had to share Rochelle & Michael's wedding day! They got married on a gorgeous fall Arizona day at my absolute favorite venue in AZ, The Farm at South Mountain! My husband and I had our newlywed photos (we didn't have engagement or wedding photos- I know, crazy right- so we did newlywed photos instead) done at the Farm and it just holds such a special place in my heart! I think I love any of my weddings there so much more because of that!
Anyways- back to these two! Michael and Rochelle are just the best kind of people. They instantly make you feel like a friend the second you are in their presence. I knew from the moment we first met we'd be a perfect match. And not just because they planned their wedding day on the Arizona Cardinals bye week- which we are both major fans of! They both have these infectious, fun personalities which light up even more when they are around each other. You can tell their relationship is full of laughs and love. Which carried right over into their wedding day!
This was such a fun day. From the awesome bridal party, their sweet, sweet families, to all the tears, loving moments and adoring speeches. I live for days like theirs. Weddings like Rochelle and Michael's are EXACTLY why I do this job and why I love it so much. It's hard to even put in to words but leaving their wedding day I just had this grateful, fulfilled and content feeling. I got in my car and before I drove away, said a quick prayer for them and their marriage like I do after every wedding and just knew these two were going to have an amazing life together.
I love, love, love that they wanted to honor their moms and do something special for them during the ceremony. They each gave their mom a white rose and massive hugs before being pronounced husband and wife and as a mom myself, I about lost it seeing this sweet moment!
