When Mindi Verdi from Verdi Photography reached out to me about running their daughters destination wedding AZ I literally squealed with excitement! I was so honored that they picked me since they too are in the business, and I was obsessed with the atmosphere they wanted to create! Since 90% of the guests were not going to be from Arizona they wanted to have a Modern Desert Spanish feel, and the brides parents worked their behinds off to make it as authentic as possible even driving down to Mexico for some of the decor items. The actual set up for this wedding is probably one of my most LEAST favorite ever... the venue was 2 hours outside of the city and my rental truck was 5.5 hours LATE!!! So all those pretty details you see on the tables--my team and I had1 hour and 45 minutes as opposed to 5 hours to complete the set, but we did what we always do and got it done in the time we were given and the outcome was phenomenal! The bride and groom were a dream to work with and had the calmest sweetest disposition. The Verdi's hired Daniel Kim Photography to photograph the wedding so they could enjoy themselves, and he of course outdid himself as usual!
