Windmill Winery Lakehouse AZ Wedding | Tamra & Anthony
Last weekend Tamra and Anthony became husband & wife at the beautiful Windmill Winery in Florence, Arizona. Fun fact.. Tamra was actually one of my high school volleyball coaches, so I was overjoyed when she reached out to me to photograph her wedding day! It meant the world to get to document such special memories after Tamra and the rest of my AMAZING volleyball coaches were such a huge part of my life for so long! Back to Tamra & Anthony though, their story is a long one, starting back in THE FOURTH GRADE where they first met. Although they had known one another for a long time, it wasn’t until they met again in 2015 that they went on their first date. Tamra says she knew Anthony was the one on that very first dinner date, “He sparked something in me that I never knew existed. I knew he was genuine, I looked into his eyes and knew he was a kind soul.”
After dating for some time, Anthony asked Tamra to be his wife one Christmas night at her parents’ house. He asked in front of their families because he knew how important it was to Tamra to have family be a part of such a special moment. Tamra had the sweetest things to say about their relationship, “We can completely be ourselves around each other. We act silly no matter where we are. He dances around the house and in stores, and it just puts a huge smile on my face.” You can see why I was so excited to be a part of their day!
We arrived at the Lakehouse at the Windmill Winery to photograph the Bride & Groom as they put their finishing touches on for their wedding day. Soon enough, it was time for their beautiful ceremony on the Lakehouse dock. Surrounded by friends and family, Tamra and Anthony exchanged their vows while lot’s of happy tears were shed. It was truly a sweet ceremony, and I don’t think there was a dry eye in the audience. After they were pronounced husband and wife and shared their first kiss, it was photo time! We loved shooting around the grounds of the beautiful Windmill Winery, and Arizona had saved the perfect fall sunny day for Tamra and Anthony!
Tamra & Anthony: I am soooo glad we got to be a part of your wedding day! I know it took me a while to say “Tamra” — Haha I think Coach T is forever etched on my brain, LOL — But I can’t say enough what a beautiful bride you made! The way Anthony makes you light up is truly something I’ll never forget! I’m wishing you two lot’s of love & happiness!! 🙂
