The Windmill Winery Wedding – Tiffany and Joel

Romance was in the air on June 9, 2012

Tiffany and Joel’s wedding day started off beautifully. Their venue, The Windmill Winery located in Florance AZ, is a little piece of heaven. Pure magic and romance. My first wedding here and I can’t wait to go back. I felt so inspired and creative the entire day…I am sad to say, I didn’t have time to try out all the ideas flowing through my mind. There are just too many fabulous photo spots.

My favorite part of the whole entire day – The love. Tiffany and Joel are so madly in love. It warms my heart to see their laughs, smiles and the way they look into each other’s eyes. Their wedding re-solidified the reason I LOVE what I do. I LOVE capturing these memories. It’s the best career in the world!

Tiffany’s gown from David’s Bridal fit her perfectly. She was radiant! Her hair was done by Bill at Cherry the Salon, Makeup by her bridesmaid – Kirsten Jensen (Kirsten has fabulous How-To make-up YouTube videos). Flowers byΒ Garden Gate Flowers (Annie KcKay), Catering – Gold Star (Chef Le). Cake and deserts by Sweet Confections (Barb Jennings), Grooms Clothing – Men’s Warehouse and last but surely not least, DJ Ramma Jamma (Ramzy Saba). And – special Thank you to Kristi and Brian for 2nd shooting for me. πŸ™‚


(Their engagement session was just as romantic.)

    Hana - Your photography eye is exquisite. The happiness of Tiffany and Joel has been captured in every shot. I love what you did with the more artsy photos, taking traditional ring and cake shots to a whole new level. Their wedding looks as though it came directly from Martha Stewart Weddings. If this had been my wedding, I would be proud to look at these photos for years to come.ReplyCancel

    caitlyn - Wow! I can’t believe I knew this girl when she was a poofy haired, awkward teenager, with her crazy blonde buddy (Kirsten), and poofy haired twin (Michelle)! What a lovely young lady! (That sounded old) And what perfect pictures to catch her elegance, goofiness, and her love of family! Glorious pictures that definitely showed the love this family feels for each other! Thanks for sharing, Tiffany, Joel, and Jill! Jill, you have a fabulous eye!!!!ReplyCancel

    (By the way, Jill, my video tutorial of Tiffany’s bridal makeup will be uploaded either today or tomorrow, so if you want to see how I used your photos and pimped your amazing photography skills out, I linked my channel in the website field. πŸ™‚ )ReplyCancel

    Gina B. - Absolutely love all of them! So happy for Tiffany and Joel. I think one of my favorites is when they’re embracing and her left hand is on his face/neck and his right hand is holding her arm. It looks like they’re just seeing each other before the ceremony. Very beautiful!

    MJ Jesser - WOW! Gorgeous photos of a gorgeous couple! It’s hard to pick a favorite, but the wedding dress in the window with the light shining through is amazing and simple – a very striking image. I love the Scrabble letters using the rings for the “O” also. Of course, all of this is secondary to the radiant happiness in every photo of Tiffany. Accounting? Really?? She should be a model! Glad she found the perfect match with Joel, and Jill Lauren Photography went beyond capturing the breathtaking moments of this very special day.
