Dana and Mike’s Encanto Park Phoenix Wedding

Apr 5, 2016

Editing Dana and Mike’s Encanto Park wedding was a blast because it constantly reminded me of how fun their wedding was. I’d be hard pressed to find a bride and groom with bigger smiles on their face…all day. These two are easily in the running for most adorable in the nonexistent annual Aaron Kes wedding awards.

I instantly knew I’d love being around these two as soon as boss wedding planner Nicole, from Nicole Arend Weddings and Events, first introduced me to Dana and Mike. And not just because they couldn’t decide on a wedding cake flavor so they got both. (exactly like me and my fiance) They’re just fun, great to each other, and down to make awesome photos. A wedding photographer’s dream.

Here are some of my favorite images we made at their Phoenix wedding. 

(Side note: the invitation photographed below was made by the groom. He’s an awesome designer who whipped up hilariously amazing invites, programs, RSVP’s, and even menu cards.)
