While Alex and Alyson may currently both live in Arizona, they chose to get married closer to where they both grew up (Alex in Ohio and Alyson in Pennsylvania). Their wedding at the scenic Walden Inn of Aurora made it much easier for friends and family from “back home” to come together and celebrate their union. The Walden Inn is also where we were able to photograph the couple a year ago for their engagement. The property is an idyllic setting complete with several horses onsite; Alyson was so happy with some of the engagement photos with the horses that we were able to capture several additional shots alongside the same majestic animals.
The wedding day began with a multitude of gifts being shared – Alex and Alyson gave gifts to each other, to their parents, and to all their bridesmaids and groomsmen. The generosity of the gifts and the emotions accompanying such a meaningful celebration had the couple and their parents misty eyed at several points throughout the day. Thankfully tears were the only drops that fell – the weather for their day could not have been more perfect – beautiful sunshine and not too hot!
Alyson and her bridesmaids had gorgeous flowers arranged by Molly Taylor and Co. who always do an outstanding job. The theme colors for the festivities were beautiful blushes complimented by classic gold and soft ivories. All of their guests had a wonderful time celebrating Alex and Alyson’s special day, and we are so thankful that they chose us to capture the start of their life together in photographs. We wish them all the best as they head home to Arizona as husband and wife!
