Modern Desert Wedding at The Paseo

There is nothing better than a beautiful wedding in the desert. This modern wedding took place out in the Arizona desert at a gem of a venue called The Paseo. The large open windows framed in black leave you breathless with the reflection of the Superstition Mountains. It’s open floor plan leaves plenty of room for guests to mingle and party during your reception. If you are lucky, like these two, you may catch a little snow on top of the peaks during Winter season. Yes, you read that right. Snow in Arizona! I’d call it wedding day luck.

One of the most important things to Shea and Connor for their wedding day was to be outdoors with nature. The Paseo was not their first choice for a venue but as they toured the property they were sold by the views of the mountain. It was the perfect space for them to celebrate their love with all their closest friends and family.

I asked Shea and Connor after their wedding a somewhat difficult question, what was your favorite part? There’s so many amazing things that take place on your wedding day, but what really stood out? The support and love from their friends and family as they were gathered together.

“Seeing everyone we love, from so many different areas of our lives come together was so surreal.”

Even as the photographer I could feel all the love and support from their friends and family. It made it truly a precious day for Shea and Connor.
