He was a basketball player at Grand Canyon University, and she was the cheerleader that caught his eye. While they fit the cute movie-like romance plot, these two could give any sappy chick-flick a run for their money. Ryan and Jackie waited a long time for their big day to come. They are actually my longest standing clients, as Jackie booked me over two years ago!
You could feel the anticipation on their day. All of the months and years leading them up to this very moment. Friends and family gathered at the beautiful Paseo Venue near The Superstition Mountains in Arizona to celebrate these two finally becoming husband and wife. The green grass was filled with family from all over the country and more cheerleaders than I could count, haha.
The newlyweds sealed their vows with a locked box of love letters and wine (their favorite), to open on their 5th anniversary. A reminder for the love they shared on their special day and what got these crazy kids to fall in love in the first place.
As the sun set over the mountains, the desert cocktails were getting everyone on the dance floor to show off more than just their dance moves. Jackie became the ultimate bride as I watched her get lifted into the sky by her fellow teammates. I have never seen a wedding dress modeled in a pyramid stunt, but let me tell you, it brought my love for adventurous brides to a whole new level.
I am so excited for these two, and so blessed to have been apart of their special day. And huge thank you to all of the vendors that made this day so great!
