If you live in Arizona, you know that our weather can be crazy! It can rain cats and dogs one minute and be totally sunny an hour later. We can have a haboob or monsoon sweep through the valley covering everything in its path with dark clouds, dust and rain, downed trees, and then the sun will pop out like nothing happened. But on this day, February 18th we experienced something that I havn not seen many times in my twelve years of shooting weddings. We had an entire day of rain! Not just a little rain, but rain every minute of the day, the kind of rain that turns parking lots into swimming pools. The kind of rain that could make a bride cry. . . especially when she has spent months planning a beautiful back yard reception. But, you know what they say, “rain on your wedding day is good luck!” A quick move to the beautiful Superstition Manor reception center saved the day. Life isn’t about waiting for the storm to pass, it is about learning to dance in the rain. So that is exactly what Drew and Jenna did!
Here is Drew’s story of how they met: “The ongoing debate on how we first met still exists, Jenna believes it was just a group hang out, I however was convinced it was a date. After a fun night of Dutch Brothers, adventuring to the lake, and driving around Fountain Hills neither of us wanted to leave so we made sure to set up a second date for the next day, and that’s how it all began. After that I don’t think we ever went more than 1 day without seeing each other, we just couldn’t get enough!
From then on it was movie nights and soda runs until the day came when I knew I had fallen in love with the girl of my dreams. After a long day with a lot going on, seeing her was the only thing that mattered. I couldn’t imagine my life without her and that’s when I knew it was time. I decided to take her back to fountain hills where we first met and ask her to spend the rest of eternity with me. And the rest is history.”
