Chandler AZ Romantic Glam Wedding | Ieshia & Ernie
Ieshia and Ernie tied the knot at their church, Bethel 3d, then celebrated the night at Noah’s Event Center in Chandler, Arizona. These two love birds have a beautiful and long love story. Having actually met in high school, Ieshia and Ernie went to prom together as friends, and would only become more than that years later. After years of growing closer together and eventually growing together in Christ, Ernie proposed to Ieshia at the Tapatio Cliffs Resort and included a surprise engagement dinner with friends and family. If anything is evident when you’re around these two, it’s that Ieshia and Ernie are so incredibly in love with each other. They way they look at each other is so endearing, which made it easy to capture their love. Their Payson Arizona Mogollon Rim engagement session was absolutely stunning, so I knew their wedding day was sure to be beautiful, and it was.
We met at Noah’s Event Center for the getting ready portion of the day, which provided a stunning backdrop for photos. Ieshia’s bridal details were absolutely romantic and glamorous, from her dainty gold headband to her sparkly shoes, she was truly stunning from head to toe. After the bride and groom were finished getting ready, we photographed their first look and some bride and groom portraits. Their bridal party photos came next, and oh my gosh I can’t express enough how much I adored Ieshia’s bridesmaids’ style. Sequined sparkle dresses were the perfect touch for a romantic and glamorous wedding day. After some fun groomsmen photos and full group bridal party photos we headed to the church for their wedding ceremony.
The ceremony featured the most beautiful hand-letter sign and soft details. While Ieshia walked down the aisle, the spot light hit her to perfectly highlight her entrance. It was so sweet to see Ieshia and Ernie commit their lives to one another while their family and friends watched in support. When the ceremony ended, it was time for bride and groom photos at sunset. I know I talk about the desert light and colors a lot, but I can’t help it. Seriously, you’ll see why. I just love the soft background for Ieshia and Ernie’s romance portraits. I was in some sort of photographer heaven with the perfect light and most stunning bride and groom. Ieshia’s wedding gown photographed so beautifully with her whole bridal look. After finishing up photos, we headed to their reception where they entered celebration mode! Be sure to pay special attention to their adorable dessert bar featuring glazed donuts- I love! This whole wedding day was gorgeous from start to finish, and I honestly had the hardest time narrowing down photos to share! 🙂
Ieshia & Ernie: Meeting you two and hearing your story has been inspiring to us. I love the way you both seek God’s will in everything you do and I know it will make such a great foundation for your marriage. Thank you for letting us capture your wedding day, I wish you two the best. <3
