a lovely wedding at The Royal Palms | scottsdale wedding photographer

As a wedding photographer you certainly get to see your fair share of weddings. Like everything else in life, weddings come in all shapes and sizes. This wedding was one of the most intimate, heartfelt I have ever been a part of.

Last week, we had the good fortune of being part of a very special wedding at The Royal Palms Resort. Rhonda Rush of Impact Events put together one great wedding full of love and lots of amazing detail. The couple resides in Canada, the groom is South African, the parents of the bride reside part time in beautiful Arizona - so why not have a gorgeous wedding at The Royal Palms? Canada is just too chilly this time of year anyway. And South Africa just too far away on short notice.

The day was just delightful.  The weather was perfect. The family was fun and relaxed. The bride and groom were gorgeous. The flowers were exquisite. (Avant Garde out did themselves!) The music set the perfect mood. Camelback was the scenic backdrop.  A lovely ceremony with an even lovelier family.

And Serendipity Video was able to set up a Skype connection so that the groom's mom in South Africa and the groom's brother in London could see the ceremony first hand. Two computers viewing the ceremony. So touching. I have used Skype before, but that was my first experience seeing it incorporated into the actual ceremony. Technology. To think the Jetsons used to talk about stuff like this.

From beginning to end, this was the perfect wedding.

Did I mention how much I cried during the toasts?
