This gorgeous, multicultural wedding from Rachel Solomon Photography may look like a scene straight out of Under The Tuscan Sun… but it’s actually set in the heart of the American Southwest! The swoon-worthy bride and groom tied the knot with a little help from a rockstar vendor team - Amy Mancuso Events made sure the celebrations went off without a hitch, Juliet Le Fleur wow’d us with her floral design… and the dress, ohhh the dress. It’s safe to say we’re completely obsessed with this one guys!
From the bride... Danny and I met when we were 18 years old. We both received soccer scholarships from Seattle Pacific University and met our freshman year of college. All through college, everyone could see that we had a 'connection.' He and I could feel it when we were around each other, but the timing was never right until our senior year when we officially started dating. When we finally got together, all of our friends joked with us and said, "It's about time!"
I knew he was the one the very first time I laid eyes on him. The thought "I'm going to marry that guy!" ran through my head. I thought it was crazy and blew it off, but I knew after we started dating that he was mine. Even when it has been hard, he does things that remind me of why I want to spend the rest of my life with him.
On our 2-year anniversary of being together, as I walked through the door after work, I was completely shocked to see our whole house decorated with candles and flowers. Danny had a whole speech ready to say to me and then got down on one knee. Of course I said yes!
We come from two different cultures and backgrounds. We complement each other, and we help each other see the world through different points of view. Our wedding brought two different cultures together and united as them as one.
From photographer Rachel Solomon... Taylor & Danny celebrated their classic, romantic wedding set against the backdrop of the McDowell Mountains in Scottsdale, Arizona, but by the looks of it you'd think they were in the middle of Tuscany!
