Real Weddings: Jeneca & Ryan's Wedding

Alright, so I guess I lied a few weeks ago when I said I was back.  The truth is I have just been so crazy with work and planning a wedding and this move, that I haven't been able to catch my breath.  On the weekends I am traveling all over for different weddings and I just haven't been able to make the time to share it all with you!  Although I haven't been sharing, that doesn't mean I haven't been documenting all the good stuff for when I was ready to share.  So today, I am officially back with the wedding of my cousin Ryan and his new wife, Jeneca.  


My cousin Ryan was born and raised in California, and his wife, Jeneca, is born and raised in Arizona. Through fate the two met and aside from a few months where they both lived in Cali, they have had a long distance engagement.  With our families being on opposite sides of the country we had only met Jeneca one time before we arrived in Tuscon for the wedding, but after only a few minutes it felt like we had been family for years.  Her family was so welcoming and wonderful and it was obvious why Ryan and Jeneca were so madly in love.

If I could think of a theme for the weekend, at least for me, it would have to be "Family".  It was the first time my Dad's side of the family spent a weekend together in almost three years.  The last time was my sister's wedding weekend so we didn't get to spend this type of quality time together.  The wedding was held at the Ritz Carlton-Dove Mountain and it really could not have been more beautiful.

I got so spend some quality time with my favorite nephew.

Talk about a breathtaking view...
The flowers made such a beautiful photo!
My cousin, Tyler, was the best man and killed his speech

The bright fuschia really popped

So glad I finally got to recap this beautiful wedding.   I hope to be back next week with a few more weddings and some other updates.  I am off to St. Louis tomorrow for a wedding and to spend some time with David's family.
