Mr. & Mrs. Guinn

As promised on Monday, I have more McCoy Equestrian wedding photos for you lovelies! This time, Mr. & Mrs. Guinn’s wedding is on the blog. I’m pretty sure I’ve mentioned it before, but I love how McCoy Equestrian Center can adapt individually to each couple’s vision. And Arianna and Caleb’s wedding was no exception!

Like many of my couples, I first met up with Arianna and Caleb at Canabru Coffee. And even though it was early when we started, I’m pretty sure we were the last ones out of there. Because we had so much in common (and because Arianna is just so fun), we had endless things to talk about! We probably talked about their wedding… but mostly I remember learning about them.

Their wedding day was one I was looking forward to from that moment forward, and it did not disappoint. We started the day off at Chino Valley Community Church.

McCoy Equestrian Center Wedding Photos

After the wedding ceremony at Chino Valley Community Church, we headed over to McCoy Equestrian Center. I love wedding parties that are on the smaller side because it gives a little more intimacy to the wedding party photos. This group was so much fun, and it was obvious that the group of friends got on well together! I think we all laughed through the whole thing. (Cue awesome wedding party walk here!)

P.S. These bridesmaids were so adorable!! There were honestly way too many great photos of them all together, and some really sweet ones as they shared a memory or piece of advice with Arianna. P.P.S. This spot for the bridesmaids’ photos was to die for!! The light coming through the trees and just that pretty summer glow… There are no words.

The groomsmen were also so great! We had such a fun time, and this really cool willow on the grounds at McCoy Equestrian Center was the perfect backdrop for them. (But, I mean, is there a bad place to take photos at McCoy? I submit that there is not.)

Okay, remember what I was saying about how McCoy Equestrian Center really conforms to each couple who gets married there? Yes. This. If you look back at Heather and Brad’s wedding which I posted a few days ago, it’s a totally different feel. Arianna and Caleb’s colour scheme was unlike any I’d ever seen here… Not to mention I died over their cinnamon roll “wedding cake.”

After we got the big events for the wedding reception checked off, I took Arianna and Caleb outside for sunset romantic photos. If you’ve ever heard me talk about McCoy Equestrian Center wedding photos, pretty much the first thing I talk about is the amazing light. Golden hour photos at McCoy are seriously #winning.

Also winning? Arianna and Caleb, who are the cutest together. I love their balance of hysterically laughing together one minute, and then being so serious and sweet with each other the next.

Pardon my recent (ish) obsession with hands, but I’m all over that, and Arianna and Caleb hold each other in the sweetest way. Even though that may be the weirdest comment I’ve ever made about a couple, I’m sticking with it. I love it, and I love them.

Happy accidents: that last photo of Arianna’s dress and the two of them holding hands is my actual favourite photo I’ve taken so far this year. I wasn’t really trying for it, but when I was going through my photos after the wedding, I became quickly obsessed.

Speaking of obsessed, Arianna and her dress. <3 Her bouquet, the way she twirls. The light. I just love it all, because of all these things and many more.

At the last minute, I found this really beautiful spot to do a final romantic photo with Arianna and Caleb. The roses were blooming and the sun had fallen. Everything about this moment was super romantic and just incredibly lovely!

Arianna’s maid of honour and Caleb’s best man (who happen to be dating!) caught the bouquet and garter (respectively). So fun!

The dancing at Arianna and Caleb’s wedding was off the hook! Not only did Caleb pull off this sweet Dirty Dancing lift of Arianna, but it was one of those great weddings where everyone was on the dance floor! The DJ was incredible (seriously, I can’t recommend him enough) and kept everyone dancing right up until the grand exit.

Arianna and Caleb!! I had the very best time at your wedding, and felt so much gratitude to be a part of your wedding day at McCoy Equestrian Center. More than that, I’ve loved getting to know you individually and as a couple, and it was an honour to party with your people!
