Nogales Arizona Wedding| Santa Fe Ranch Foundation| Tucson Arizona Wedding Photographer
As a Tucson, Arizona wedding photographer, I frequently find myself venturing out of the city and into other parts of southern Arizona that I haven't seen before. Back in May, before Arizona became the oven we all know it to be, I ventured out to Nogales, Arizona to assist Misty Hudson of Folly Photography (Please see more of this wedding at http://www.follyphotography.com/) with a Catholic wedding ceremony and a ranch reception. I must admit, I was a little nervous driving out there. I am very directionally challenged and have been known to miss exits. Needless to say, I wasn't too keen of the idea of accidentally crossing the Mexican border given that Nogales, Arizona is so close to the border that there is both an "American" side and a "Mexican" side of the city. Luckily, there are huge signs that you can't possibly miss and it's pretty hard to accidentally cross the Mexican border.
It was my first time in Nogales, and I loved that many of the houses were embedded in nature. It was also my first Catholic wedding ceremony. I was so in awe at all the traditions and at how involved the congregation were in the ceremony. It was beautiful. This ceremony took place at St. Andrews Episcopal Church.
After the ceremony, the bridal party hopped in an antique trolley car and drove to the Santa Fe Ranch. Pauly and Eric's love for each other and their friends and family was so apparent. This beautiful ranch had so many fields, horses running freely, and the most beautiful house at the top of a hill.
A house at the top of the hill housed this wedding reception and, let me tell you, it was just BEAUTIFUL. With a gorgeous garden courtyard, an amazing view of the mountains, and a distinct hispanic influence on the interior, I could have stayed in that home forever.
Big congrats to Pauly and Eric on their special day in Nogales, Arizona. I was so honored to have helped capture the day.
