Kristen & Peter [Vintage Themed Wedding at Pima Air & Space Museum]

When I first sat down with Kristen and Peter  to discuss their wedding I knew we were going to be in for a treat. Hand drawn calligraphy by Betsy Dunlap with water colored succulents for the invitations, a vintage gown from Free Ever After, succulent themed florals by Country Couture Flowers and a reception at Pima Air and Space Museum are some of our favorite details from their wedding day. Our most favorite detail of all was watching the two of them pledge forever to each other. This couple is so perfectly suited to each other and this wedding reflected that in every moment.

The girls started their wedding preparation at an amazing property nestled at the foot of the Catalinas, surrounded by gardens. There was a small artist studio with the most delicious light, where Kristen got dressed with just her mother in the room. I loved the intimacy of the giggles and laughter as they laced and buttoned Kristen into her dress, latching her grandmother’s pearls around her neck, a mother enjoying this moment with her only daughter.

The church ceremony surrounded by their friends and family ended just as an Arizona monsoon rolled in. We waited out the worst of it, pausing to take a few photos on the porch before braving the downpour to rush to the reception site (where in typical Tucson fashion was just humid without a single drop of rain!). We were gifted the most beautiful cotton candy colored sky for the last few minutes of our portrait time and it was perfect!

Kristen and Peter, we are so happy for you both! We know that God will bless your marriage and we look forward to watching you grow together as a couple!

xoxo,

Amber Lea & Jon
