Modern Scottsdale Wedding | Jordan + Mike | Scottsdale Wedding Photographer

Mike and Jordan had the most beautiful wedding at The W Hotel in Scottsdale this past weekend! Every detail was planned by Jordan and it turned out absolutely perfect, including growing her own succulent garden for months and months to be use for her decor!

Here is a bit of their beautiful love story told by Jordan.

"Our story began back in Santa Barbara during the summer of 2009. Mike returned to Isla Vista after spending most of the vacation in Europe. Jordan spent the summer taking classes, working and enjoying the best time of year at UCSB. Mutual friends from our respective Greek houses first introduced us. From the minute we met there was an instant connection. Within the first few days we would stay up late into the night talking and laughing. Jordan was drawn to Mike’s height (he was one of the few taller boys at AEPI), affectionate demeanor and love of hosting a party. Mike instantly loved Jordan’s long legs, witty personality and genuine demeanor.

What started as a fling quickly developed into something much more. Countless fraternity parties, Thai dinners at Zen Yai and episodes of Jersey shore later we were madly in love. After 2 years together we went against what most college kids do; we moved in together. Our adorable Isla Vista cottage led to adopting our first two babies, Jackson and Russell. That home will always have a special place in our heart.

After graduation Jordan was accepted into the 2013 Teach for America Corps. Despite banking on a Los Angeles placement, we got the shock of our lives and were asked to move to Phoenix. We were sad to leave our beloved friends but excited for new adventures and the affordability Arizona had to offer. Besides, we kept telling ourselves we would just move back to southern California once the 2 year commitment with TFA was over.

Well here we are 4 years after moving to Phoenix. Time sure does fly. Mikes career took off when he got the opportunity to manage for Sushi Roku. Jordan finished her masters and is in love with her high school district. In 2015 we bought our first home and adopted our third fur baby, Lola. Our favorite things to do include going to the movies, eating at one of our favorite restaurants, and decorating our house. We see ourselves in Phoenix for the near future but dream of raising babies in Charleston, South Carolina. We are so blessed to have you in our lives and to be apart of our wedding. We can’t wait to show you why we love to call Arizona home."

Now enjoy their stunning wedding!
