You may remember that our Winter Spring 2014 issue offered a lovely and romantic giveaway from Hacienda del Sol Guest Ranch Resort. Here’s a reminder:

It’s a pretty awesome package so you can imagine how excited our winners were when they found out the good news! Meet Krista and Ryan, a Tucson couple who is getting  married in April 2015 at the Stillwell House and Garden:

Favorite thing about each other: My favorite thing about Ryan is how well we get along and how much he makes me laugh. Ryan’s favorite thing about me is that I get along easily with others and that I am driven when it comes to my personal and professional life.

How did you meet? We met back in May 2006, where we both worked at our high school job, at Safeway…we were in the same school district and happened to take a summer school class together. Ryan and I kept in touch the following months and began dating on October 12th, 2006. We got engaged on July 29th, 2013 and are going on 8 years together this October!

What’s your ideal date night? Ryan and I are total foodies, so we love going to local restaurants. Afterward, we would probably go to a movie, rent a redbox, or catch up on our favorite TV shows on Netflix.

What do you enjoy most about Tucson Bride & Groom magazine and/or blog? I love that Tucson Bride & Groom covers real, local weddings, which provide inspiration for my own wedding. It is nice to see the resources other brides are using in the area, instead of comparing to brides in other states that are not applicable for me.

Krista and Ryan plan to enjoy their Hacienda del Sol Mini-Moon after their wedding or for their 8th “dating” anniversary…this is the couple with Rachel, the catering manager from Hacienda del Sol, who presented the gift certificate to them. What a great day!

Tucson Engagement: Gina and Joe
categories: Engagements, Photography

Tucson Bride and Groom_Tucson wedding magazine_Limelight Photography_Tucson Engagement_Gina and Joe (1)

Gina and Joe met while working at Target in high school but it took much more time and distance for them to start dating- Joe reconnected with Gina via Facebook while on his 2nd tour in Iraq. Her picture popped up as a “person you might know” and Joe went for it. When he returned to the States, he took Gina out on a date and the rest is history.

Gina and Joe’s bright happy smiles caught our attention and their fun-loving, “life is short” attitude is infectious…

The Proposal: After working an exhausting day and taking a nap, Joe asked me to sit with him on the couch. Thinking nothing of it, I obliged. At this point, I have to be honest, I don’t even remember what he said because he pulled the ring out in his hand and I immediately started crying! He says he asked if I would walk the rest of this life with him in which I answered, “This ring is mine?!” and “I get to keep it?!”, all while crying of course. He said, “Is that a yes?” and of course it was a yes! It was the perfect proposal for us because he proposed in our home, the first home we bought together. Neither of us had purchased a home before, so to be able to buy our first home and to buy it together, was very special. We have two dogs (Chaps and Mila) who jumped up on the couch with us and covered us in kisses. It couldn’t have been more amazing!

What they love about each other: There is so much that we love about each other. For me, I love that we can have fun wherever we go and we make the best out of every situation. We laugh with each other daily and at every chance we can. We both truly believe that life is too short to be unhappy so we’re spontaneous and enjoy every day together…we fully embrace each other’s “likes, we do races together and it’s great for our relationship knowing we completed the races and obstacles together,  we go to Maui (or Hawaii in general) every year, and we have “Lazy Day Sunday”.

3 words to describe your relationship: So In Love
Ideal date night: Our ideal date night is very simple. A movie at home with Chaps and Mila and a little BTO frozen yogurt!

categories: Bridal Fashions, Cakes and Sweets, Destination Weddings and Honeymoons, fabulous reception sites, Floral Inspiration, Photography, Wedding Inspiration

Our styled shoot at Tubac Golf Resort & Spa was nothing short of enchanting. The light was golden, the horses were camera ready, and the grounds themselves were perfectly lush. Your wedding inspiration for today is part boho- chic and part casual elegance. Enjoy!

Can you even believe this is the desert? Tubac is an oasis that you’ve just got to see for yourself…

A wreath as an alternate to a bouquet- clever!

The lace head wrap is similar to a Spanish mantilla but less structured- secure it with flowers and a pin and you’ll be good to go; Tubac Golf Resort & Spa is a unique venue for weddings because it’s so green and has so many interesting places for photos- the mission- style chapel is lovely, the beautifully maintained greens are perfect for portraits, and the many winding paths offer an intimate atmosphere.

This bouquet of  pink anemone and peonies is so fresh and stunning
