Sheryl and Socorro got married in Socorro’s Uncle’s beautiful backyard in Mesa.  These two are some of the most in love people I have met.  Which is quite funny, because when they first met, Socorro wasn’t too sure about Sheryl.  But after time, their friendship blossomed into a wonderful relationship.  Now they enjoy spending all of their time together and taking day trips to Northern Arizona.

This one is for the gentlemen.  Grooms and groomsmen tend to be overlooked on the wedding day in regards to getting ready tips.  All the tips and inspiration seem to be about the ladies!  While it generally does not take as long for the guys to get ready on a wedding day, it is still a crucial part of the day!  Here are my tips for all my dudes to have an amazing wedding morning.

Kaela & Mike got married at the amazing Farmhouse at Schnepf Farms in Queen Creek, Arizona.  Kaela & Mike are high school sweethearts.  Mike was the teachers assistant in Kaela’s theater class.  She was a freshman and he was a senior.  They have been inseparable ever since and celebrated their 11th anniversary just before their wedding!

Kaela & Mike love spending time together going to the movies and finding new places to eat out at.  They also go to Comic-Con every year!  (Kaela had three outfits for the last Comic-Con, and they were all amazing!)  When they are not having weekly game night with their friends, they are spending time with their two cats and polish dwarf rabbit!

Emily & Chris’s garden backyard wedding in Glendale was absolutely amazing.  Emily & Chris met through a mutual friend when they were in high school and they quickly became friends.  They spent many nights hanging out and getting to know each other in Chris’s backyard and their friendship eventually blossomed into a romantic relationship throughout the years.  So, it seemed only fitting that they were married in Chris’s parents gorgeous backyard garden!

When was the last time your family had professional photographs taken together?  You know, the kind you frame and decorate your home with.  Years ago?  Never?  At my wedding it had been about 9 years since my dad and I had professional photos together.  For my husband’s family, our wedding was the first time they had professional photos taken together, EVER!  If you fall into either of these camps, then you (or mom) is going to put high importance on the family pictures from you wedding.  So, you want to make sure they look extra amazing.  (And if you don’t fall into one of those camps, read on because you will still want amazing family portraits!)  The best way to making your family photos really stand out is with outfit coordination!

My husband and I are introverts through and through.  You may never have guessed because we both put ourselves out there through our social media and he used to play in bands in front of hundreds of people!  But in all reality, we prefer small social gatherings or just spending an evening on the couch together.  We never really gave much though to this until it came time to plan our wedding.  Then there it was, staring us in the face.  How were we going to feel comfortable at our wedding in front of all those people with all the attention on ourselves?!  Good news: we figured it out!  We had an amazing wedding and did not feel awkward or uncomfortable once.  Here is how we did it!

Rachael and Alec met during their freshman year of college at ASU.  They were part of a small group of friends who would frequently hang out together.  By the summer they realized they especially loved being around each other and started dating.  They have been inseparable ever since and just celebrated their 4th anniversary!  These two love all things Disney, Harry Potter, and Star Wars.  (So, you know that we hit it off immediately!)  When they are not spending time with their family or watching ASU sporting events together, they are sneaking off for trips to Disneyland, the Wizarding World, and Prescott!

I am not going to sugar coat it.  One of the hardest items to DIY for your wedding is a Day of Coordinator.  I speak from personal experience, as I had my cousin’s fiance coordinate my wedding.  Don’t get me wrong, she did an amazing job.  But after being in the wedding industry for so long, I appreciate the difference between a DIY coordinator and a professional Day of Coordinator.  But, this post is not about why you should hire a professional.  It is about to DIY the best damn Day of Coordinator for your wedding!
