So anyone that has seen the new issue knows that I finally made it out to Arizona … and I fell in love. It’s a little city chic and a little desert beauty, and seemingly has something to offer everyone. Every sight is picture worthy and I grew a fondness for cactus. Go figure. I love that this wedding was in Arizona and how photographer Elyse Hall was able to capture not only the details of the wedding, but also the surrounding environment. It’s so romantic and so girly.
Things I love: the old photos of the grandparents and not only is that fur jacket beyond words, but it’s vintage. Amazing!
Stephanie Morgan and Mark Lowe
Married in Peoria, Arizona on December 04, 2010
Stephanie Morgan and Mark Lowe, a pitcher for the Texas Rangers, were introduced — by who would come to be, the maid of honor and her husband (a groomsman) — at a beach barbecue in Seattle during the summer of 2009. Both members of Blackstone Country Club, they thought it would be a place that they could go to every day and be reminded of how beautiful their wedding was.
In honor of her late grandmother, Stephanie wore pearls and a fur stole that belonged to her and were passed down when she was only in grade school. “Remembering her on this special day was important,” she says. As a couple, Stephanie and Mark paid tribute to all of the grandparents with a photo collage that they filled with old photographs. With Mark being a professional baseball player for the Texas Rangers, his nephew arranged for all of his teammates to sign the program.
