Jones + Ludlam Wedding | Phoenix Wedding Photographer

Some weddings completely steal my heart just a little more than normal. This was one of those. Everything about this wedding was breathtaking. Alison ad Detjen's love, their welcoming family, an amazing ceremony that left not a dry eye to be found, and the location was jaw dropping. 

Alison and Detjen had a first look that I'll never forget. The way he stood creek side, nervous and excited.  He talked about Ali in the sweetest way. Like he might implode if he didn't see her soon. When she quietly tiptoed over the damp stones she waited with a smile bigger than life before gently tapping him on the shoulder. I loved the way they took time to see each other. Really "see" each other. Literally stopping to smell the flowers for those moments. They might as well been the only two people in the world. 

Family and friends gathered just as the last light of the day was bathing the cliff face of Saguaro Lake Ranch. It was there that they became husband and wife and celebrated under the stars. Mr and Mrs. Jones you give a whole new meaning to "keeping up with the Jone's" because with a love like yours, anyone would be lucky to strive for what you two have. <3
