We are so excited to share this Four Seasons Scottsdale at Troon North Wedding with you today! With what was maybe the most beautiful sunset we’ve ever seen, and a design to match by Whitney of Some Like It Classic, it was one of the most romantic, breathtaking days. Which is so fitting for Kelly and John and their love story. But let us back up…
It was the middle of a snowstorm. Freezing temps. Chilly winds. The kind of weather that makes you want to stay home (in sweats) and be cozy by the fire with the one you love. Not get dressed up and drive on dangerous roads to meet someone you don’t know… and don’t know if you’ll ever see again. But Kelly and John did. They took a chance. And once they were there, neither wanted to leave. They’d never talked in person, yet their voices sounded so familiar. It was as if their souls recognized each other. Hours turned into more hours, and finally, it was time to go. They said goodbye, and as John left, he prayed Kelly felt the same way he did.
She did. He just didn’t know it yet.
As John drove away, he already couldn’t wait to see Kelly again. As fate would have it, he would get his chance sooner than he thought. In a serendipitous turn of events, Kelly left her keys at the restaurant. So, John, the kind, tender-hearted gentleman, drove back in a snowstorm just to help her find them. They eventually found the keys. More importantly, they found forever. Together.
Three years later, Kelly and John stood together, hand-in-hand, in front of God and their family and friends, and put to words what their souls already knew that snowy night: “Since the day we met, my life has only gotten better, brighter and more vibrant. I vow to selflessly and endlessly love you… until the end of time… even though this lifetime will never be enough.”
Kelly and John, from the moment we met, Jesus’s love and light burst through you. You’re kind and sweet, warm and loving, fun, smart and energetic, as beautiful on the outside as you are on the inside — and so much more. You’re like an all-you-can-eat buffet: the best of everything, all in one place, all at one time, in unlimited quantities, that never run out. Don’t stop and don’t change. There are a lot of things to be discouraged about in today’s world. You two are in the part of the equation that give us hope. If God sends rainbows to remind us of his love, he must send pastel sunset skies to show his delight, because there’s no other way to describe the way heaven smiled down on you last weekend. Before we let you go, we’ll leave you with this… The only thing more powerful than the way we love people by ourselves, is the way we love people together. Our prayer is that as many people (as possible) will cross your path, so they feel the same love that we and so many others have been blessed enough to experience.
God bless you both and congratulations on this new adventure! It was a privilege and pleasure to get to document the first day of it. We are so grateful for the trust you placed in us and are so excited to share some of our favorite moments and memories with you. We’ve photographed a lot of weddings at The Four Seasons Scottsdale at Troon North, and this day really took our breath away!
