Viviane and Adam - first wedding of 2010!
A fantastic beginning of a new wedding year...
Viviane and Adam were married at the gorgeous Arizona Biltmore in Phoenix. The day was coordinated by the fabulous Rhonda Rush, Impact Events, so I knew we were in good hands! I am super grateful to my friend and fellow photographer, Erin Michelle for coming along and contributing to the amazing collection of images. And as always, the fantastic Jenn was there workin' it out. This was my first Jewish wedding as the head-shooter and it was full of lovely, happy tear-jerking traditions; I was very happy to have two friends with me to cover all of the magic.
One tradition I have never seen before, the bedekkin, took place in the beautiful Aztec room. All I can really say is I would love to be a part of more bedekkins. They are a lot of fun and so romantically traditional!!
The joy and the love with us and everyone throughout the entire day, were palpable. It was an amazing celebration that none of us will ever forget. I managed to whittle down the blog post to make it manageable, but I struggled. I kind of wanted to post the whole entire thing.
Viviane and Adam have great taste. The Biltmore is no joke.
