Blackstone Country Club Wedding | Carli & Aaron Wedding

On Friday, November 8, 2019 Carli and Aaron became husband and wife at the beautiful Blackstone Country Club in Peoria, Arizona. Carli has been one of my best friends since we were about 14 years old, so getting to be a part of this wedding day was extra special. I was asked to be a bridesmaid and stand up beside her as she exchanged her vows with Aaron, and getting to do that while also getting to photograph her day was one of the most rewarding experiences I’ve had during my time as a wedding photographer. But let’s dive into this day and these two amazing people…

“Aaron and I met in Rocky Point, Mexico on a spring break trip. We had never met each other but had one mutual friend. When I first laid eyes on Aaron, I called dibs immediately! He was tall, dark and handsome!! We had a fabulous weekend together and I thought I might never even see him again… I was totally wrong, we started seeing each other the very next week we got back home. We went on our first date in Tempe at Cornish Pasty Company and the rest is history.”

After they began dating, it was immediately obvious that something was different about this guy. I can remember so many times that Carli would tell me how excited she was because she just couldn’t believe how right everything felt with Aaron. I think everyone around them knew they would get married one day, and now here we are! When it came time to propose, Aaron’s plan was thoughtful and sweet…

“Aaron planned a fake photo session with my best friend because she is an amazing wedding photographer and he knows how much it meant to me to have her capture our moment. I was completely fooled by the photo session because I thought it was just our yearly Christmas pictures. During the session Aaron took my hands and began to speak such sweet and kind words to me, he got down on one knee and then asked me to spend the rest of our lives together. I of course said yes and then immediately realized I had been fooled by my friends and Aaron! It was such a special moment. After we finished up our session, Aaron told me we had dinner reservations and that we would be dropping our dogs off at his parents house on our way. Little did I know, I was in store for many more surprises that Aaron thoroughly planned out. When we pulled up at his parents house, everyone I know and love were on the driveway waiting for our arrival. I have never felt such joy in my heart, I immediately began to cry. He had an entire engagement party planned and we spent the rest of the night with the people who mean the most to us. The only thing missing was my family who live in other states. Aaron found a way to include them too in our engagement. He had them all record congratulations videos of themselves and he compiled them into a video for the entire party to watch together. I love this man, he takes care of my heart.”

Their wedding day only continued with sweet moments. From beginning to end, the day was filled with family and friends, all leading up to the moment Aaron choked back tears as Carli walked down the aisle (I think we probably all choked back tears). After all of Aaron’s surprises for Carli leading up to their wedding, it was only fitting that Carli planned a surprise sand ceremony for Aaron, including sand from Texas (where she’s from) and sand from California (where Aaron’s from). It was a really sweet touch to symbolize their joining families in marriage. After the Ceremony, we wandered around the beautiful grounds of Blackstone for Bride & Groom photos before heading into the reception for a night of celebration and fun!! And of course, after the last song played, Carli & Aaron had a sparkler exit which really helped to end the day with a little bit of magic!

Carli & Aaron: OH MY GOOOOSHHH! I still can’t really believe that you guys are married. Your wedding day was so beautiful and I just want to say thank you for inviting me to be a part of it as a bridesmaid and as your photographer. It was such a HUGE honor to document your day like this, to get to use my talents for people I love. SO thank you. It means the world, and I’m seriously so excited to see your marriage grow in the years to come. Congratulations, love you guys!!
