I'd love to present to you one of those unforgettable weddings!
Tyler and Alexandra first met while attending the UA. And although after they both graduated life took them out of Tucson, they decided to seal the deal in the place where it all began...
Searching for venues they found one of the most unique and beautiful venues in the heart of Tucson. The Park Avenue wedding venue is located in the industrial side of Tucson adding to the eclectic urban feel of the venue. Seriously one of my favorite ones out here.
I love the Love sign and I thought it'd be neat to capture the sign and the tables' decor.
Check out Alexandra's beautiful dress captured here against the amazing brick wall in the bride's room at the venue.
Akexandra's choice of sexy stilettos were in a pastel pink color.
I have to say I also really loved Tyler's shoes and choice of socks (Alexandra's choice actually :)!).
Now I have the pleasure to show you the photos of their first look and bridal session.
I'm so happy I got to take these shots of Tyler and Alex. Don't they both look amazing?!
After I heard the story of how they met I couldn't help to imagine how amazing it'd be to do their first look at the UA. It was going to be a challenge first, because it was graduation weekend and second, because Alex is allergic to Olive trees!! She was such a trooper and willing to give my imagination a try. I thought the olive trees would be a unique and stunning touch to their photos making it look like an enchanted spot in the middle of the woods. Once I took the photos oh my gosh! I had another friend of mine tell me it looked like a fairy tale! Everything was perfect the trees, the color palette Alex chose and the bride and groom!
Now I have the pleasure to show you some of the photos of Alex and Tyler's first look/bridal photos!
Let's move on to the ceremony! :)
Ready for more?! Now check out the delicate decor they chose to make the night truly magical!
Now this is the most beautiful naked cake I've seen and ... tried! (Ok I'm a little embarrassed to admit I had some because it is part of my policy not to get cake, you know? But Tyler and Alex insisted and yes I had some...Yum!!)
Here is a pic of these amazing Polish pastries Alex's dad brought. They were incredible and every bite would transport you all the way to Europe! ( I know :( I tried some too :)!).

Tyler and Alex's first dance as husband and wife.
Most of the guests came out of state to attend the wedding. Tyler's brother not only did he come from far, but the wedding happened to land right on his birthday! So Tyler and Alexandra really wanted to do something special for him, they surprised him with a little birthday cake and Alexandra's side of the family and friends sang him a birthday song in polish! How neat! It was a super awesome experience for me to be a part of.
Time for the speeches and toast!
And time for some dancing!
Now it's time to cut the cake!
And after a wonderful night full of love and fun, guests and family bid farewell to the couple with some cool sparklers!
It was such a pleasure to be part of this moment and to get to document their love story!
