I really have no words for today's first featured affair. Which is weird because I usually have words for everything. And I mean everything. But this wedding, photographed by the always incredible Andrew and Katrina of Sedona Bride, simply took my breath away. The simplicity, the joy, the edited but totally romantic style. It's beyond beautiful. To see even more images, click right here.
Kate and Norm are hotshots...they go out and fight all those crazy wildfires. They decided to have their flagstaff wedding under the san francisco peaks at their training camp. It's so sweet that they picked a location that was so sentimental to them, and where they have spent so much time. Family and friends came from literally all over the world to attend the wedding. From Brazil, New York City, California, Las Vegas, Atlanta, and everywhere in between.
Their wedding was relaxed, beautiful, and so very personal. All the details can be credited to Kim Duncan, of KD Events...she is a must-have at weddings as she really does an amazing job creating themed details that pull together an event.
Seeing Kate+Norm in their designer wedding attire contrasts sharply to the clothing they wear in the course of their normal routine, which is the heavy fire-fighting gear. They tough people, and they dress up quite nicely :)
We were so lucky that this noon wedding...all photographers can tell you that midday is the *worst* time to get married because of the harsh light. But the couple had a canopy to soften the light. Kate's sister is our good friend, Cameron (who is a fabulous photographer) and she was able to talk Kate into adding this for photos.
It was a lovely, lovely wedding.
Thank you so much to Andrew and Katrina of Sedona Bride for sending us this gorgeous bit of inspiration. Make sure to check out their blog for even more eye candy!
