Adrienne + Nikki – Boojum Tree Wedding

The Boojum Tree has this amazing rustic feel to the decor that makes it seem like you’re in another place- not Arizona. I loved meeting Adrienne and Nikki for their wedding ceremony on 12/12/14. A picture perfect evening celebrating their wedding with the son, officiant, and two witnesses (I was one). Their son was the ring bearer in his adorable gray suit.

 

How they met: Nikki and I went to a latchkey after-school program in Kindergarten together. We were raised in the same northern Michigan town and befriended each other in high school. Playing basketball on the same team is where our friendship first started and over the years, it was undeniably something more. After distance, time, and different paths were unable to separate us, Arizona became our home. Life without her is incomplete.

 

How they proposed: Last winter a few days before Christmas, we planned to take a hike one Saturday morning. I woke up to Nikki making my all-time favorite breakfast and bringing me coffee in bed (I knew something was up then!). We ventured into the cool foggy morning, and I stopped to take a ton of pictures along the way. Nik was very patient. When we finally reached the top of the mountain, the sun was starting to rise. I was taking a shot to the north and when I turned around, Nikki was down on one knee, gorgeous diamond ring in hand. I said yes (of course!), and she took me in her arms. The sun broke through the clouds as we reveled in the moment.

 

Why they eloped: Our families are both still in Michigan. We have been engaged for a while, and after the law on same-sex marriage passed in AZ, we no longer had to plan a destination wedding and could make it happen much sooner. Budget was also a consideration and we really wanted to keep the focus on us as a couple and the unification of our family. Eloping was a great way for us to do that.

They are planning to have their honeymoon up in ski country Colorado after Christmas. Plus, they have some rocking skiing and hot springs to enjoy. Pretty great welcoming in the New Year with your spouse and they live by me so I get to see these happy people more often.
