The Wright House: A Perfect Arizona Wedding Venue

Although the Wright House has two venues within their property, Dora & Luke chose the Provencal Garden for their wedding day ambiance. The Provencal Garden is for couples who prefer a more rustic yet elegant setting that closely resembles the French countryside. This area features charming brick pathways, a beautiful fountain, and a spacious patio area ideal for dining and dancing under the stars. The Provincial Garden’s versatile layout allows for creative setups, ensuring each wedding is unique and personalized.

With its picturesque settings and exceptional service, The Wright House stands out as one of the top wedding venues in Arizona. The natural light that The Wright House provides is perfect for Arizona Wedding videographers & photographers alike. Dora and Luke chose the Wright House for its enchanting beauty and the cozy feeling it offered in bringing their wedding vision to life.

Dora & Luke: A Love Story

Dora and Luke’s love story began on a Saturday night in May 2017, in a cozy bar filled with friends and laughter. Dora, out with her friends, noticed Luke across the room. Too shy to approach him herself, one of her friends took the initiative and introduced them. That night, Dora handed Luke her number, setting the stage for a beautiful journey that was just beginning.

Their first date came just a few days later, on a Tuesday evening, at The Wave, a charming sushi restaurant in Spokane, WA. This intimate setting became the backdrop for their first meaningful conversations, shared smiles, and the spark of a connection that would grow over the years. As they enjoyed the delicious sushi and each other’s company, they had no idea that this would be the start of a lifelong adventure.

After four years of dating, filled with countless memories and deepening love for each other (and of dogs), Luke decided it was time to take the next step. In the comfort of their home, surrounded by the life they had built together, Luke proposed to Dora, asking her to spend the rest of their lives together. It was a heartfelt and intimate moment, perfectly encapsulating their love story’s essence.

When it came time to choose a wedding venue, Dora and Luke selected The Wright House in Mesa Arizona. This choice was driven by the venue’s stunning surroundings, exceptional food, and reasonable cost. The Wright House provided the perfect setting for their dream wedding, allowing them to celebrate their love with friends and family without sacrificing any of their desires. Their wedding day was a beautiful culmination of their journey, filled with joy, love, and the promise of a shared future.

Ceremony Highlights

The Venue Setup

The ceremony took place in The Wright House’s Garden Reception area, a location that truly epitomizes romantic elegance. The space was adorned with delicate floral arrangements and soft drapery that created an ethereal atmosphere. The gazebo served as a stunning focal point where Dora and Luke would exchange their vows. White chairs were set up in neat rows, with black ribbons adorning the end chairs.

The bride and groom walk down the aisle hand-in-hand, with the bride making a playful gesture toward the camera. The groom is dressed in a maroon suit, and the bride wears a lace wedding dress. Guests on either side of the aisle are clapping and smiling, celebrating the couple's union under a decorative outdoor arch.

The Vows

Dora and Luke’s vows were deeply personal and filled with love, humor, and promises for their future together.

Luke began, his voice steady but filled with emotion, recounting their journey and expressing his excitement for the adventures that lay ahead. He spoke of Dora’s kindness, her adventurous spirit, love of dogs, and the way she made every moment together special. Dora’s vows were equally moving, highlighting Luke’s unwavering support, his sense of humor, and his ability to make her feel cherished every day.

There wasn’t a dry eye among the guests as Dora and Luke exchanged rings, symbolizing their eternal commitment to each other. The officiant delivered a heartfelt speech that added a personal touch to the ceremony. This moment, framed by the beauty of The Wright House and the couple’s palpable love for each other, was truly unforgettable.

Arizona Wedding Videographer’s Perspective

Capturing the Ceremony

As an experienced Arizona wedding videographer, the key to capturing a beautiful ceremony lies in preparation and attention to detail. At The Wright House, the natural light and stunning surroundings provided the perfect backdrop. By scouting the venue beforehand, I identified the best angles and planned my shots to ensure every important moment was captured. Multiple cameras were set up to capture different perspectives, from close-ups of the couple to wide shots of the venue and guests.

Filming the Reception

The bride and groom sit at a table decorated with flowers and candles, looking attentively at the speaker. The setting is an outdoor garden, adorned with string lights and lush greenery, creating a romantic atmosphere.

The reception presented an opportunity to capture a variety of moments, from the emotional to the fun and lively. Using a combination of steady cams and handheld cameras, I was able to move seamlessly throughout the event, capturing candid interactions and staged moments alike. The warm lighting and beautiful decor added to the overall aesthetic, making each shot visually appealing. Incorporating guest interviews and toasts added a personal touch, making the final video more meaningful.

Post-Production Magic

Post-production is where the magic truly happens. Editing the footage to create a cohesive and emotional narrative is crucial. For Dora and Luke’s wedding video, I used a mix of slow-motion with carefully selected music to enhance the emotional impact. The goal was to create a video that not only captured the events of the day but also conveyed the love and joy felt by everyone present.

I had to ensure that every detail, from the vows to the cake cutting, was perfectly timed and beautifully presented. The final product was a cinematic wedding film that Dora and Luke could cherish forever, a testament to their unforgettable day at The Wright House.
