Desert Foothills Barn Wedding | Scottsdale, Arizona | Steven + Kayley

We had the absolute best time capturing Steven and Kayley’s Desert Foothills barn wedding!

Steven and Kayley met two years ago through mutual friends while on a houseboat at Lake Powell. After the first day they became instant best friends but ironically they were both in long-term relationships. Just three short days later, Kayley had to leave the trip early but they both knew there was something special between them. Fast forward a few months they had both said goodbyes to their partners and were ready for a new adventure. Cue the beginning of Steven and Kayley’s love story.

Their wedding took place during the brisk Arizona winter which paired perfectly to the simplicity of their day. From the neutral tones of taupe to the greenery of the eucalyptus created such an elegance. Kayley opted to do a first look with her dad and stepdad which was one of the sweetest encounters we’ve seen. The love they both have for Kayley was so evident it brought tears to our eyes (scroll down to see this first look).

Steven and Kayley’s big day was at Desert Foothills barn wedding venue in North Scottsdale with a breathtaking view of the Sonoran Desert. The desert landscape was surrounded by beautiful, towering saguaros and was accented perfectly by the Arizona sunset. This made for a gorgeous backdrop for an outdoor ceremony. The reception space was just as beautiful. The most spacious and simplistic rustic barn lit with twinkle lights made for a romantic space for all to enjoy.

The night was filled with laughter, joy and everlasting memories. Their guests were dancing the night away while Steven and Kayley soaked in every moment from their special day. Steven and Kayley were the easiest and kindest couple to work with. We enjoyed each step of their day and wish them all the love as the start this new life together.
