Jacque and Dan's Desert Botanical Garden Wedding

Jacque and Dan came back to their home state of Arizona and celebrated at one of the state's loveliest of places, in my opinion. The Desert Botanical Garden is a beautiful place for a wedding and really fun for a photographer to shoot.  Fun was kinda the theme of the wedding for me. Dan's sense of humor, Jacque's easygoing nature, hilarious speeches, delicious food, wedding planners who finished each other's sentences, and some nighttime photo fun with the couple and my 2nd photographer made for a great time.

Here are some of my favorite images we made at their Desert Botanical Garden wedding in Phoenix.
