Jessica and Eric are both from the Chicagoland area, but recently moved to Arizona. My husband and I had planned a trip to Phoenix for our anniversary, so as luck would have it I was able to meet the couple while we were out in Arizona.
The bride and groom wanted their wedding to feel like Thanksgiving – warm, welcoming and shared with loved ones. Their bridal party was small and included only family, and everyone was really excited to be a part of their big day. Jessica and Eric were so sweet and a dream to work with.

The bride is just about ready to go.
Jessica’s nieces were very excited about their roles as flower girls. They practiced in the suite to make sure they got it just right.
The couple offered hot apple cider to help warm guests on the chilly day. Needless to say, it was a huge hit.
Though it was a bit cold, you’d never know it by looking at the beaming bride!
Jessica had her heart set on getting married outside in the garden. It rained the night before, but luck was on our side!
The environmentally friendly park was a beautiful backdrop.
Once the ceremony was over, everyone could relax!
Here’s a shot of the beautiful room.
Jessica and Eric danced to “The Way I Am” by Ingrid Michaelson.
Like many of my couples, Jessica and Eric chose to sit at a sweetheart table. I love the way the light changes in the room throughout the evening.
The dance floor was packed all night. The kids definitely had a blast!
The water and city lights look so pretty.
Tomorrow, we’ll look at some details from their wedding.
