This beautiful forest wedding was such a dream to capture! As an Arizona wedding photographer it’s so nice being able to show off parts of Arizona people don’t usually think of, like a forest! I loved Madison and Rylie’s vision they had for their wedding as well as their chosen venue. The florals, the vintage, the whimsy it was all TO DIE FOR!!
I am still obsessed with all of the details they brought to their wedding day, all of the florals were chefs kiss! The wildflower-infused decor amidst the forest at The Gathering Place in Pinetop was simply stunning!! There was so much thought that went into their wedding planning and it really showed. The vintage furniture areas, the various hang-out spots throughout the woods, the wedding signage, everything was perfectly boho, slightly vintage, and a tad bit whimsical and I loved it.
The bride started her morning by getting ready in a HUGE Airbnb with all of her bridesmaids and immediate family. Once the hair and makeup were done we headed over to the venue for the finishing touches so she could put on her wedding dress. After everyone was ready we went into their ceremony and then onto all their photos!
It was so much fun exploring the forest behind the venue! We got so many beautiful shots of Madison and Rylie and their wedding party! After their photos, we all went in for their reception. It was honestly such a relaxed wedding with such beautiful details!
From high school sweethearts to this beautiful forest wedding, their love story is truly heartwarming. Looking back on Madison and Rylie’s special day, let it inspire all of us to embrace love in our own unique ways.
