Wedding Wonder  APR 27 09

Jeff and Abby were married Saturday in Tucson. It was a gorgeous day and they were absolutely giddy. It was very cute and fun to witness.

 

Abby and the girls started the day out at her mom's house for hair and make-up:


Toby, Abby's mom's puppy, stole the show most of the morning. He thought the party was for him. He got a new toy in honor of the day and the poor little bride-dog didn't last long:


Abby's Cockatiel, Holly, who has been a part of the family for 15 years also got in on the pics:


All day long I couldn't stop gushing over Abby's Junko Yoshioka dress from Mariee:


Abby's six bridesmaids all fit in the dining room for primping:


I love this shot of Abby doing her make-up:


Next we headed to The Stillwell House, my new favorite venue in Tucson, for the remainder of the day's events. Here's a shot of Jeff with his guys hanging out and looking all handsome. Most of them, including Jeff, are from New Jersey so I was entertained all day by the accents.


I love everything that Abby picked out for the day. Her flowers by In Full Bloom were so simple and fit the style of her dress perfectly. Abby looked stunning!


The couple chose to see each other before the ceremony which gave us a chance to take advantage of the gorgeous venue for portraits.


I love that the guys wore tan suits. The color palette was so clean and fresh:


Jeff and Abby were so easy to photograph. I had a tough time narrowing down my favorite portraits so there's a lot!

 

 

 

 

 


The bridesmaids wore tan and white stripped dresses from Twirl ... the guys' ties were made of the same fabric as the dresses:

 


Abby's father walked her down the aisle:

 

 

 


Jeff's father officiated the ceremony and the bride and groom were both beaming:


Husband and wife!


I couldn't decide between the next two shots so you get both!

 


The bridal party started the celebration right away:


Meanwhile the courtyard was quickly transformed for dinner:


The details were beautiful:


And instead of cake, Abby ... Jeff hired Frost Gelato to bring a cart to their reception!


It was such a gorgeous night--the perfect ending to a great day!
