For this small wedding ceremony, the bride and groom chose to enjoy the outdoors. The Japanese Friendship Garden of Phoenix, Arizona was the perfect, sunny setting, and the day was complemented by all the lovely foliage.
The bride grabs the groom’s hand, a huge smile on her face, as she happily swings her clutch.
The bride, in a stunningly detailed lace gown, takes a walk with the groom, lightly linking their fingers together as they go.
We can see the officiant reading the vows as the bride and groom hold hands in front of the officiant’s pages.
From between a couple of guests, we can see the groom gently smiling in the sunlight.
The bride has a good laugh during the ceremony, and the groom and officiant can’t help but smile with her.
The small number of guests smile and applaud as the bride and groom finally share a kiss at the end of the ceremony.
