Backyard Gilbert Arizona Wedding
Sara + Brandon’s backyard Gilbert Arizona wedding was one of the most beautiful, emotional and unforgettable weddings that I have ever been a part of! Every little detail of their day had been carefully planned and orchestrated and it was simply perfect!
Sara + Brandon came to be over a year ago for their backyard Gilbert Arizona wedding and with their personality and vibe, (and Brandon’s man-bun) made me totally fall in love with these two! They have the cutest little daughter, Olivia and she loves to give me her dinosaurs, haha! I have had many conversations with this amazing couple and to be a part of their commitment on their wedding day was just the icing on the cake! I love them dearly and they mean the world to me! I cannot wait to see them grow together!
So how they met…Brandon says that if anyone ever asked him for dating advice or where to go to try and meet Mr./Mrs. Right, he would probably tell them to avoid looking at a bar. Call it luck, or fate, or destiny, but that is exactly what happened with Sara + Brandon. They had both been in serious relationships the year prior and were enjoying the single life. They each had a couple friends who overlapped their own circle of friends, and this just happened to be the night that they finally crossed paths. Something about her caught his eye so he mustered up the courage to introduce himself.
A few weeks later, they went on their first date. They were both very nervous and Brandon says he is pretty sure Sara could tell because he wouldn’t stop talking. Thankfully for him, Sara found the dialogue to be great enough for a second, third & fourth date. That was the real foundation of their relationship, the conversations were never ending & and their interests were right in line as well. They were both very invested in Crossfit when they met so it was very easy for them to spend time with each other doing something they both felt so passionately about.
The next few years went by with a flash. They went from a few dates, to moving in, meeting each other’s parents and then their biggest surprise of all came about 2 years in when they found out their baby girl was coming into their lives. Despite a little pressure, they decided that jumping into marriage wasn’t the right move right after finding out about baby O. Once she arrived, those first few months were full of wonder and joy, fun and fear, ups and downs, and more surprises at every turn and one day Brandon finally decided that if they can make it through all of that and still be as madly in love as they were, it was time to ask the big question.
April of 2016, while visiting family in Seattle, WA, Brandon finally asked Sara to marry him in the middle of Pike Place Market surrounded by hundreds of strangers, which was no accident as he knew the best way for me to calm his own nerves was to embarrass her as much as he could. She said YES! And the street erupted in applause. Next to their wedding day and the birth of our daughter, this was one of the happiest days of their lives!
