Natalie and Levi’s vintage inspired wedding at the Grand Highland Hotel in Prescott, Arizona was unforgettable. Not only was it absolutely beautiful, but it was so FUN! Natalie and Levi’s bridal party was so fun, and they made me feel so welcomed the whole time.
The Grand Highland Hotel in Prescott, Arizona is the perfect mix of vintage and modern. The hotel rooms are absolutely beautiful, and so unique! The outdoor area had exposed brick walls, as well as the beautiful wooden backdrop for the ceremony area. Pretty much a photographer’s dream! Along with that, the staff were impeccable and so helpful, and I look forward for future weddings at this venue for sure!!
Natalie wore a vintage inspired lace dress from Azteca Bridal in Phoenix, Arizona. The key hole back was one of her favorite parts about the dress, so I couldn’t help but get tons of pictures of it!! Natalie’s beautiful updo and soft makeup was done at Strada Salon. If you are getting married in Prescott, I highly recommend them!! The purple toned bridesmaids dresses were from Lulus. All of the florals were done by Natalie herself, can you believe it!? I loved all of the little DIY touches throughout the entire wedding!
Natalie and Levi are high school sweethearts, which totally melted my heart because my husband and I are as well!! Their vows to one another were so sweet, and you can just see the love in their eyes. I couldn’t help but tear up multiple times, but what’s new haha!
After the ceremony we wandered across the street to the prettiest park! I spent a lot of childhood trips visiting this park (to escape the Phoenix heat), so it was really cool to be taking pictures there!! One very memorable moment was when Natalie asked me, “So this sounds really weird but can we go take pictures next to this specific tree?” Of course I said yes, and then she explained that it’s “their tree”. Levi and Natalie spent a lot of dates at that very tree all throughout high school, so we totally had to take pictures there on their wedding day! I seriously love special little things like that!
All of the first dances began, and that’s when the tears started. Everyone was so emotional throughout all of them, especially the one with Natalie and her step father. My freaking heart. Then we stuffed our faces with the yummiest Olive Garden and listened to the sweetest speeches for the couple. They seriously had about ten people give speeches, which was so sweet!! It was so apparent that everyone there loved Natalie and Levi so much.
The night ended with the best dance party and an epic cake fight. The DJ, Christiana Doba from Cerrick Entertainment, was seriously the best EVER. I highly recommend all Arizona brides to hire them. Everybody was up dancing and having the best time!! I literally stayed extra just to dance with everyone- it was that good.
Natalie and Levi- thank you so much for letting me photograph your beautiful love. It was seriously the best day ever.
