Haerina + Mark :: Phoenix, Arizona Biltmore Wedding

The sprawling corridor at the very end of the resort let out muffled laughs with signs pointing to the Bridal Suite. Inside the large room, Haerina sat contently, finishing her hair with a glow on her face. As a lawyer, Hearina is all about details and taking charge. But on this special day, with thanks to the capable hands of Imoni, this sweet bride couldn’t be pulled off cloud 9 with even the strongest grip. She was madly in love and ready marry her best friend. So with perfectly pink cheeks and a smile brimming from ear to ear, she elegantly moved about, hugging and thanking the ladies who loved her so well. This deep gratitude she felt, being surrounded by so many of her closest friends and precious parents, seeped into every aspect of the day.

Mark was full of laughter and very relaxed while he readied with his brother and the guys. These men had traveled the world, tackled med school, and experienced life together. For Mark and Haerina, it was so much about their families, their guests, that made their wedding extraordinary. The wanted to celebrate their love, yes, but they chose to honor equally the love that had nurtured and supported them individually and as a couple up until that day. There was such peace and joy from start to end. And when Mark saw his breathtaking bride for the first time, he laughed, he cried, he embraced her, and it was evident he never wanted to let her go.

Mark + Haerina :: Oh, the ways we love you. You have such BIG and warm personalities together! Thank you for being as wonderful as you are. And for building a life of strong, loving relationships to carry into your world as newlyweds. We loved every minute of your day and have so enjoyed your friendship. Hoping Mark’s new toy made it safely back from Germany!! WE LOVE YOU!!!
