Real Wedding in Marana, AZ

Glenda first met Fernando through a mutual friend when she was 21 and he was 18. He thought she was pretty and wanted to talk to her, but she was simply not interested, saying “he’s just a kid!” Six years later, they met again through the same friend, and she couldn’t help but notice that Fernando was no longer the young, skinny kid she remembered. Now, she secretly hoped he was still interested! They exchanged numbers and started texting back and forth, but nothing came of it. Three months later, they met again at a mutual friend’s graduation, but this time, their story took another twist when Glenda pretended not to see Fernando. He took that as a sign that she didn’t want to date him. But that wasn’t the case at all – she was just shy! They ran into each other again a couple of weeks later, and everything finally clicked. As Glenda said, “the rest is history!” Before long, they got engaged and began planning their wedding at The Highlands at Dove Mountain in Tucson. They loved the venue and had it decorated in colors of lavender and silver and chose chandelier flower arrangements made of white hydrangeas and lavender roses. Glenda and Fernando selected The Gawnes as their photographers after seeing their stunning work online. “They are true professionals who want the best pictures possible on your big day,” Glenda said. When asked what advice she would have for other brides, Glenda said, “Take time to relax in between all the planning and remember you will not be able to please everyone. So do whatever works for you and your fiancé and ultimately makes you both happy!”
