Soft florals in a breath-taking watercolor palette were the inspiration for Kristi and Ryan’s dream-wedding-come-true, romantic pastel wedding. Rachel Solomon photographed all the stunning and intimate moments from the couple’s wedding, which was held at Trilogy at Vistancia in Peoria. When Kristi and Ryan met each other in 2010, they agreed to go on several dates as friends only. It wasn’t until Kristi invited Ryan on a California trip with her family, that they decided to start dating officially. After Ryan’s Christmas-themed proposal involving a hidden ornament and a canine helper, Kristi said yes and the two began to plan their wedding.
Kristi and Ryan wanted to evoke a secret garden aura at their wedding. Using mint green and a complementary palette to generate a playful pastel hue to their wedding, the couple chose a golf course backed up to gorgeous Arizona mountains to set the stage for their big day. The venue, combined with the perfect decorations and details, completed the airy feeling to the whole affair. Kristi desired to feel like a princess on her wedding day – and boy, did she look the part! As Ryan waited for his bride to meet him at the altar, he looked especially smashing in a suit from Celebrity Tux & Tails. Rachel Solomon was on hand to make sure that the wonderful memories of this elegant affair were forever captured on film.
