Chelsa + Barry’s Scottsdale, Arizona Montelucia Omni Resort Wedding

In his heart and mind, Chelsa was already his wife. He’d think it, and say it, because he knew he never wanted to let this woman slip away. Barry’s so proud of Chelsa, proud to hold her by his side and call her his. Chelsa is equally smitten and on the morning of her wedding, as the culmination of the ups and downs of planning this big day sank in, she teared at the thought of how thankful she was to have this man love her well and couldn’t wait for their next chapter.

With plenty of the best champagne to go around, the day started with sprawling views and so many laughs. Chelsa could her stomach clench when she slipped into her gown and held her bouquet for the first time. It was real. Waiting ever anxiously to see her, Barry lost his breath and couldn’t believe how beautiful his bride was. They were glued to one another from that moment on, and we were grateful to walk with them, witness them, and capture them. Chelsa and Barry, we love you. Thank you for the memories shared along the way and for taking such good care of us!


Such a fun color pallet for the day! In honor of Chelsa’s Native American heritage, they burned sage for the ceremony.
