A Desert Romance :: Carla + Ed

To say that their relationship started out as a long distance one is an understatement!
Carla was in Arizona attending Arizona State University and Ed lived all the way in Australia! One fateful meeting in Las Vegas where they were both vacationing in 2009 would lead to a wonderful friendship, many more meetings in random cities across the US, a long distance relationship, and eventually Carla moving to Australia to be with Ed.

Carla and Ed are the kindest, most relaxed couple. From our first conversation we were laughing together and it felt like we were already old friends. They totally took the chaos of having a wedding in stride and through it all never once lost focus on what this day was truly about, starting your future with your best friend.

Their wedding was a freaking blast! Many of Carla + Ed’s friends and family flew to Arizona from Australia for a vacation in the desert. And boy, did they all know how to have a good time! There was drinking and dancing, a hilariously funny video of their friends role playing as Carla + Ed during the best man speech, touching tributes to the couple from both of their dads, and an amazing atmosphere of love and celebration.

To cap it all off, Ed surprised Carla by performing a few songs for her on the guitar alongside one of his groomsmen on violin. There wasn’t a dry eye in the house.

It was my absolute pleasure to be a part of Carla + Ed’s wedding. I know that with each other by their sides they will have a lifetime of happiness!
