Today we have a wedding which is perfect for the 4th of July celebrations! Stacey and Dan’s wedding actually took place exactly a year ago today. We love how they’ve mixed a little red, white and blue into their theme. We hope you enjoy and Happy 4th of July from all of us at Ultimate Wedding 🇺🇸
From the photographers, The Gawnes, “Stacey and Dan are quite the patriotic couple, but you can’t really blame them, seeing as they met through the military. Stacey is a southern girl and a Texas native, is an in-flight surgeon, meaning she is both a doctor and a pilot and is a marine, as well. She’s a busy lady but she still found time to meet Dan who is a marine, a border patrol agent, and a drone pilot. These two are serious go-getters and love their country as evident by their beautiful wedding day.
They were married on the 4th of July at The Ritz-Carlton, Dove Mountain in Marana, Arizona on a perfect day. Usually, Arizona summers are warm but this Independence Day was slightly overcast making the temperatures perfect and the sunset even better! Their colors were red, white, and blue and Atelier de La Fleur did an impeccable job with the flowers, keeping them classic with a patriotic/desert vibe.
Stacey’s beautiful dress was from J Bridal and of course, she wore cowboy boots… she is from Texas, after all. After their ceremony, the bride and groom went to the golf course with us to capture some portraits and then went back for dinner. The ballroom was all decked out for the reception with red, white, and blue lights hitting the walls. There were succulents and colored lanterns for centerpieces. Right after dinner, the guests were treated to a private fireworks display put on just for them by The Ritz-Carlton. The whole day was a perfect tribute to this couple and the country that they love so much.”
