Natalie’s Bridal Shower (Scottsdale Event Photographer)

Last weekend, I flew to Phoenix to celebrate the bridal shower of my very-soon-to-be-sister-in-law with family and friends in the Phoenix area. Naturally, I offered my services as the event photographer to the hostesses. 🙂


Natalie is a treasure, and I couldn’t have wished for a better person for my little brother, who is one of my best friends, to marry! For starters, just look at that million-watt smile:


Natalie’s maid-of-honor is her sister, Melissa, a soon-to-be-bride herself!. She and the other bridesmaids did such a lovely and thoughtful job on the details. I loved the bridal-gown cupcake-cake; such a fun and unique idea, custom made by a talented family friend. My own sister, Heather, who recently co-founded Creativity Among Chaos, crafted the pretty goodie bags (below, middle) for guests.


The mothers were glowing!


I love this sweet shot of Natalie and her beautiful mother:


Who also has a great sense of humor, as seen during a game:

Natalie is one of five gorgeous girls in her family! The lone boy is one of my brother’s groomsmen. I am looking forward to meeting him at the wedding, along with Stephanie (not pictured) who lives out of state. Stephanie attended the shower briefly via Skype.


Natalie, welcome to our family. We love you and can’t wait for the wedding! One of the reasons that Nathan and I are so, so, happy we are moving back to Phoenix is the opportunity to spend more time with you and Ryan!
