Jena & Ritchie Dobson, July 10th 2011 - Royal Park Hotel

Jena and I had meticulously planned every detail of the decor in this event. Jena and Ritchie live in Phoenix so it was a little tough for her to be hands on so she gave me a lot of creative control which I loved. Jena chose a vintage garden theme for her Sunday morning brunch style wedding. They had their ceremony in the atrium at the Royal Park and their reception in the ballroom. The weather was beautiful...it was a perfect event.

The week before her wedding Jena was in a terrible accident and broke her leg so badly she was wheel chair bound. After the devastating realization that she could not hold her bridal bouquet as she insisted on walking on crutches down the aisle, I made a beautiful hand wired garland from the flowers that were ordered for her bouquet and tied it with champagne satin ribbon to the back of the wheel chair. It was a devastating set back, but we embraced the challenges and made a spectacular event! Jena was a gorgeous bride! Professional shots soon to follow... Congratulations Jena & Ritchie!!
