Daniel Kim Photography captured these stunning images of Chanel and Ryan’s romantic El Chorro wedding. Chanel and Ryan met each other in high school through mutual friends, but did not start dating until after they graduated from college. For the proposal, the couple took a trip to Costa Rica. While they were on the plane to fly out there, Ryan pulled out a small box and said that he had gotten Chanel a gift for the trip. Totally unaware of the contents of the box, Chanel unwrapped it and opened it up. On the inside was a note that read: “Chanel Alaire Zukowski has a nice ‘ring’ to it.” Ryan smiled and asked Chanel if she wanted to start off the trip as his fiancé, to which she quickly replied YES!
Held at El Chorro in Paradise Valley, this floral-inspired wedding is simply beautiful with its excellent mixture of neutral tones and colors. The bride wanted to keep with the venue’s theme of a soft garden affair, and their wedding perfectly reflected that desire. Tie the Knot by Tessa took the lead to create the charming soirée with the help of delicate blooms from Brady’s Floral Gallery. Ryan’s father officiated the ceremony, which helped to calm the bride and groom’s nerves. At the end of the night, Chanel and Ryan snuck out to their private suite at The Hermosa Inn. Altogether, this romantic El Chorro wedding was an absolutely perfect day.
