Emily and Samuel’s intimate forest Flagstaff wedding captured by StepOnMe Photography is simply breathtaking! Every bride dreams about having the perfect union with their husband to be backed by the support of their family and friends. The couple received support and then some from both of their families who were active participants in the wedding and planning process. The couple initially met at church when their mothers tirelessly tried to set them up. They got their wish about three years later when Emily and Samuel magnified their friendship into an official relationship. Samuel planned a surprise proposal when the couple was taking pictures under the ruse of building up a photographer friend’s portfolio. After playfully taking photos, Samuel got down on one knee behind Emily when she wasn’t paying attention and said there was a deer behind her. She immediately said yes and it was all captured on video!
Both Emily and Samuel’s families helped to construct the intimate and romantic forest Flagstaff wedding that the couple envisioned. The couple was in Michigan while planning and from all over the country, the wedding slowly began to come together. The Colton House in Flagstaff served as the stunning and laidback location Emily and Samuel had dreamt of for their intimate wedding – yet they picked it without even a visit. Emily’s mom handmade the florals and decors while in Virginia, and Samuel’s sister handcrafted the remarkable floral and gluten-free wedding cake. Emily’s grandparents were a constant support of the relationship and her grandfather even officiated the wedding. Emily’s gorgeous sweetheart dress from That’s My Dress Bridal, was the perfect mix of sweet and romantic. Samuel’s priceless reaction when he first saw her was Emily’s favorite moment of the wedding and seemed out of a dream. The homegrown wedding was elegant and romantic and with so many personal touches, the day will forever be unforgettable.
