hannah + chris desmarchais | the biltmore estates - phoenix, arizona

Updated: Jan 13, 2022

weddings at home... a family affair. there is something deeply rooted about starting your future together in a place filled with family history. i couldn't help but think of a movie iconic to my childhood, father of the bride, for the sentiment that so easily translated throughout the day. hannah and chris got married at her grandparents' home surrounded by views of the phoenix valley mountains. between the green and the beautiful florals by hannah and amy (mother-of-the-bride) of @thelocalstem, you'd hardly think any of these pictures were taken in a desert. these two complement each other so well and the excitement everyone felt for them made for a magical day outside. the classic colors, the packed dance floor and happy smiles from people dressed in their formal best. the grandparents lighting the first sparkler and the goodbyes as the newlyweds left in a golf cart. this couple radiates so much love and have quite a village behind them. congrats to the newlyweds !!
