Today’s styled shoot brought to us by Love Affair Photography (Gilbert, AZ) is the perfect inspiration for an intimate wedding! Here’s more from Love Affair Photography:

This adorable couple, Veniamin and Julia were introduced by mutual friends their meeting was unlikely and so meant to be. Veniamin was originally from Alaska and ended up visiting California after he was randomly gifted a ticket there by his mother to stay with friends. Unfortunately, halfway thru his trip the place he was staying fell through causing him to stay with a different friend who unexpectedly introduced him to his now wife. If it wasn’t for this fact, Veniamin and Julia never would have met.

See more after the cut!

The couple ended up getting to know each other when their friends decided to take a road trip memorial day weekend when they were stuck in the backseat together and they realized they had an infinite amount in common. The couple had a whirlwind courtship dating for only four months before they got engaged and a month later deciding to get married. Both of them never expected this chance meeting to turn into a lifetime love affair, they simply thought they were going to the beach with friends or taking a California vacation.

The weather that day was simply perfect for such a whirlwind love affair as the snow unexpectedly fell upon us in mid June blanketing all that lay before us a creating a serene picture perfect setting. The couples energy was infectious as they happily braved the snow that day to get some unique bridal images. I loved watching Veniamin watch her with such wonder as she spun in the snow bouquet in hand excited for the unique weather. This couple showed so much love and affection for each other that they simply radiated it to all involved in their day.

I loved the burning fire and hot chocolate that we all received as the weather beckoned us inside as the snow proceeded to cover the entire resort in snow. The couple vowed to always remember this day and the special moments they shared and to love each other more and more every single day. One of my favorite parts of their day was how the bouquet had the same pearl accents as the Brides shoes.
