From the bride: My husband and I met through mutual friends in the sport of triathlon. We had been dating for about a year when we both qualified to compete in the Ironman World Championships race in Kona, Hawaii. The race took place in October of 2015, where Adam proposed to me at the finish line. It was the most memorable experience of my life!
In May of 2016, we moved to Prescott, Arizona, a small town in the mountains about two hours north of Phoenix. We fell in love with the quaint feeling of a small town, the cooler weather, and beautiful mountain trails. It was only fitting to have our wedding here, at Capital Canyon Club, a private golf course located near Thumb Butte mountain with magnificent views. Our ceremony took place on the driving range which overlooked the entire city. The views were breathtaking!
Our wedding was traditional with a hint of rustic since we were in the mountains. We went with a blush and champagne color palette, with hints of greenery and wood for a rustic feel. The groomsmen wore black suits with black ties, and the bridesmaids were in blush pink dressed with champagne sparkle wedges. To tie into our rustic theme, we went with candle-lit lantern centerpieces surrounded by greenery, roses, and tulips.
If I had to describe our wedding in three words, I would say it was simple, traditional, and elegant. My favorite part about the day was being surrounded by my closest friends and family. Our wedding was on the smaller side- 90 guests- because we wanted to make sure we could spend time with each individual guest throughout the night.
I remember sitting down for dinner at our sweetheart table and taking a look around the venue to see all of our guests laughing, smiling, and having a wonderful time. It was in this moment that I realized all of our guests were here for US! It was a special feeling.
