Anna and Ryan Real Arizona Wedding by Ben & Kelly Photography | Arizona Weddings Magazine

Ben & Kelly Photography captured this gorgeous Real Arizona wedding of couple Anna and Ryan. The couple met at a baseball game, after one of Ryan’s friends accidentally spilt beer on one of Anna’s friends. Because of the mishap, the couple got to know each other and began dating. Four years later on a snowshoeing trip in Colorado, Anna and Ryan paused to take a lunch break. As they did so, Ryan popped the question amidst the beautiful landscape. Anna said yes, and they began planning their destination wedding in Arizona.

Anna and Ryan knew they wanted to showcase the best Arizona has to offer – and they did just that! All 130 guests gathered at the unique Desert Botanical Garden for the ceremony. After a family friend officiated the wedding, everyone moved to the Showcase Room at Culinary Dropout for a reception filled with great food from Culinary Dropout and all-night dancing. Meant2Be Events planned the whole affair with ease, which was a great relief for the out-of-state couple. At the end of the night, everyone retired to Tempe Mission Palms for a well-deserved night of blissful rest. Anna and Ryan plan on honeymooning in Costa Rica next April.
