First look at Melanie and Craig’s wedding at Arcosanti

I had been waiting for this wedding for such a long time…since June of last year actually. Arcosanti. What a place to shoot a wedding. And what a couple too. Can’t really find two better looking people…not to mention Craig looks a lot like Hugh Jackman. Now usually I’m comparing people to celebrities all the time, trying to figure out who they look like…with Craig though, it’s not just me. Even Melanie’s father during his toast at the wedding brought it up. Everyone thinks so!

But that’s offtopic. The wedding was amazing. Such a unique and beautiful location. There are endless possibilities. And what a stunning view all around you. There are rooftops that you don’t even know about where you can see for miles and miles (and we found those). But mostly, it was a perfect spot for a destination wedding. The weather was spectacular despite being windy early on.

Tons of thanks all around. Cara from A Day to Cherish Weddings. Wow. What I learned this weekend (from two weddings), is that planners have the toughest job of all of us. And Cara is a beast…she’s there early, and there much later than everyone else. This is the second time I’ve been able to work with her and she rocked this wedding like no other. Everything went smooth, such great details and amazing to work with. Thanks for everything Cara!

And to Jeff as always for helping me shoot this and blowing it out of the water.

But of course…Melanie and Craig…thanks for letting me be a part of your day, and for trusting me with this. It’s been my pleasure getting to know you both and I wish you the very best! Hope you enjoy these!

(and Melanie, hope you like the shoes walking up the stairs…just for you)
