Real Weddings: Rachel + Tanner


“I felt lucky just to meet you and be your friend. And I feel even luckier to have married you and love you for a lifetime.”  Tanner and Rachel met on their first day of medical school and their friendship quickly turned into something special, and soon they found themselves gathering their closest family and friends for an intimate destination wedding at the Copperwynd Resort in Fountain Hills, Arizona, where Tanner spoke those words to his new wife.  I love the deep burgundy and plum flowers from Petal Pusher and the beautiful desert setting!  Rachel is a positively radiant bride, resplendent in her gorgeous lace Ulla-Maija gown, and these two are completely head-over-heels in love, as evidenced in the absolutely beautiful images from Melissa Jill.













And if the amazing pictures weren’t enough, enjoy this gorgeous video trailer from their amazing cinematographers, Serendipity Videography!

      What is the exact color of the tablecloths? That deep champagne is BEAUTIFUL! I cannot put my finger on the color though to search for them myself!
