A Romantic Wedding at Noah's Event Venue in Chandler, Arizona
The bride: a nurse; the groom: a firefighter. So it’s no wonder that the wedding of high school sweethearts Brittney Whitney (25 and a nurse) and Josh Whitney (25 and a firefighter) was filled with details to show how much they care about people, especially each other. Their day unfolded at Noah's Event Center in Chandler, Arizona, the same city where they grew up and fell in love. Brittney created lots of DIY projects for her special day, but her favorite was the ceremony backdrop: She used her grandmother’s sheet music to create a hanging garland of paper hearts. For the reception decor, Brittney and Josh went for a shabby-chic theme, which the design team at Designer Venues helped create with mismatched centerpieces of vintage vases, clocks and candles. One detail close to home was the catering by Elmer’s Tacos: Brittney’s family runs the restaurant, which is Josh’s family's favorite. As another thoughtful touch to personalize their day, Brittney and Josh gave each of their guests a plastic mason jar with a lid so they could bring their beverage on the dance floor and have a convenient wedding favor too. Monique Hessler Photography captured all the details, including a super-sweet moment between Brittney, Josh and their attendants that made us say "Awww!" See below.
