Styled Wedding Photoshoot at Aldea at Tlaquepaque

Back in September we teamed up with the talented Mandy from Mi Amore Photography to do a styled wedding photoshoot at Aldea at Tlaquepaque. We have anxiously been waiting to receive the pictures and we are now so thrilled to be sharing them! The concept for the photoshoot was that perfect mix of classic, holiday fun with a slight edge.  The details fell into place perfectly, from the grooms sharp tux and red velvet bow tie to the brides tattoo sleeve and crimson red lips to the dramatic floral pieces amongst the romantic twinkle lights, this shoot felt like a festive, intimate wonderland! Trust us you’re going to want to pop a bottle of  bubbly and put on your favorite tunes and soak in all this beauty!

{Real Bride Series} Meet Christina Koch

We love showcasing Babydoll Weddings real brides and their romance stories!  This issue features Christina Koch and John Koch dishing about their favorite wedding moments.  Would you like to be considered for our Real Bride Series?  Send an email to bridal@babydollweddings.com and we will send you the information.

What is your name and your groom’s name? Christina and John Koch

What was your wedding date? Saturday, November 1, 2014

How did you and your groom meet? Plenty of Fish website and met for the first time at Ah-So Sushi in Tempe. Needless to find out later he didn’t even like sushi but remembered that I love it.

We are dying to know, how did he propose?! After a dinner in San Diego and a walk on the beach he proposed on the balcony of our ocean view top rise hotel. I was a balling mess.

Where did you find your dress? Would you say that finding your dress was relatively easy or difficult? David’s Bridal had the dress that I fell in love with but I couldn’t afford it so I bought a less pricey one at Strut. I kept going back to David’s website to look at my dream dress and one night it was on clearance in my price range! Needless to say, I bought it right away and was so thrilled! I still have both dresses but the first one I loved was the one.

Where did your ceremony and reception take place? Was there any special meaning behind the choice of the venue(s)?  We chose the Manor at Catlin Court because it was small and cute and had everything that we wanted. I grew up in Glendale and Phoenix so for me it was a no brainer.

What kind of flowers did you have in your bouquet and at the ceremony/reception?  I chose orange and teal as my colors so we chose orange roses with orange mini flowers and teal ribbon and  added yellow calla lillie’s tinted with orange for John and me.  The flowers were gorgeous.

What was the flavor of your wedding cake? My dad made my cake. It was a perfect small cake in lemon with lemon curd filling and rosette swirl orange icing. So cute.

Did you provide favors to your guests? If so, what were they? We had a photo booth for our guests which also turned into our guest book it was a blast and everyone loved it!

What details from your wedding that made it unique to you? We had our vows made traditional and funny. We had a plant that our mothers watered and then we watered together to feed the roots and symbolize our growing family.

Other than marrying your husband, what was one of your favorite moments from your wedding day? All the songs I picked for individual people. When they played each person got super emotional. It was just perfect!

Did you take a honeymoon? If so, where did you go? We did a small honeymoon in Phoenix at West Gate and took our official honeymoon 3 months later in Jamaica!

What is one piece of wisdom you learned from your planning experience that you would like to share with future brides? Just go with the flow as nothing’s worth crying about unless it’s raw chicken.

Who were some of the other vendors that were a part of your dream team? We did most ourselves. Glendale Florist was fantastic and hand delivered everything.
