When life gets tough and you can’t turn that downward spiral upside down, what are you to do? We’ve all been there and when it happens, you gotta grab a guaranteed fix. For me, that comes in the form of fabulous (and happy tear-inducing) wedding clips. And this one delivers. From the written vows to the tandem bicycle sparkler entrance, Carl S. Miller Wedding Films captured magic – sit back and enjoy!
From Carl S. Miller Wedding Films… I’ve known the Bride, Noel, for a number of years and so I was ecstatic when she asked me to film her marriage to Dan. The day and preparations began in their new home in the historic barrio district of Tucson, Arizona. The architectural lines within were a visual delight, and I tried to incorporate aspects of their home as a metaphor for their relationship: new home, new marriage, new life together. Saguaro National Park provided a breathtaking vista of mountains and cacti as the backdrop for their Southwestern ceremony. Their event designer and florist, Atelier de LaFleur, did a phenomenal job with the chuppah and floral arrangements to provide an aesthetic and color palette to complement the desert landscape. The celebration continued at the Tucson Museum of Modern Art, where the festivities were started by Noel and Dan’s jaw-dropping tandem bicycle sparkler entrance. Now that’s original. Their film is designed to not only show the beauty and elegance of their day, but to highlight the many subtleties that make their relationship unique to them.

From Brushfire Photography…Lea & Jack’s Outdoor Desert Wedding was such a beautiful display. Working with Ashley Gain Weddings to bring their vision to life was the perfect fit for their day. Lea loves floral and wanted to incorporate as much as possible. The outdoor setting was perfect for a spring wedding in Arizona with a warm sunny day finished with a nice cool evening. Paradise Valley Country Club has some stunning views of the desert mountains as well as lots of nice greens. Add in all the lovely blooms and the place came to life! The tent was designed to give an intimate space for dinner without taking away from the evening views of the mountains. So it was an open tent with drapery allowing for some nice hanging decor and greens to accent the head table.

From Charity Maurer Photography…Thinking about having their wedding in their hometown of Alberta was sending shivers up the spine of bride, Paige, and groom, Justin. With that in mind they began their search for the perfect (and warm!) destination for their marriage. A few short weeks later the couple settled on the charming and luxe city of Paradise Valley, AZ. The bride’s elegant tastes are evident in all of her choices. From the soft blush-colored silk bridesmaid dresses to her own a-line dress with beading like you’ve never laid eyes on before, Paige makes it clear that she has an eye for detail. Justin, being the dapper dude he is was striking in a stylish black suit – both an homage to formality of times passed and a tribute to current menswear styles. Surrounded by both of their close families, this day was truly a pleasure to behold. Families laughed and danced together while the bride and groom enjoyed all of their planning and efforts coming together for their special day. Paige even decided to have a special “first look” moment with just her father – what a sweet moment to behold, there wasn’t a dry eye in the house. The couple exchanged vows bathed in the light from the stained glass windows of Blessed Sacrament Church. Their choice of the intimate El Chorro Lodge for their reception tied together the perfect look for their day. It was as if the universe knew that nothing could spoil this day, so it set out its very best on display: gorgeous weather, an incredible sunset, and a cool evening breeze. Under a blanket of stars the happy couple and all their guests danced, laughed, and celebrated the night away.
