An Elegantly Whimsical Wedding Set in Phoenix


Gabi and Jeff’s wedding has left the VGS in a state of awe and simply speechless. Every detail of their chic Phoenix, Arizona celebration was carefully crafted around their love for each other, honoring their heritage, and enjoying a fabulously fun celebration with their near-and-dear loved ones. Their day was elegant yet whimsical, formal yet relaxed, and intimately true to their legacy as a couple. Marvelous! 


A Bit About The Happy Couple from Charity Maurer Photography 

Gabi and Jeff met each other in childhood, and were friends ever since. As their relationship grew into more, neither could imagine the happiness and also struggles they would endure. During college they were able to keep their romance alive, despite being in different states and only being able to see one another infrequently. When they finally lived in the same city, it wasn’t long until wedding bells were chiming in the distance and Gabi and Jeff got engaged! Their wedding was a celebration of culture and relationships as family from around the country flew in to support them and help them celebrate their special day. Their Ketubah signing ceremony reflected their deep commitment to family, each other, and their faith as they sat before their family and proclaimed their commitment to a strong marriage. It was such a pleasure to photograph Gabi and Jeff; from their somber commitments, to their joy-filled reception, it was truly a magical day to behold. Congratulations again, Mr. & Mrs. Hawkes!


At VGS, we believe in the importance of crafting a well-planned wedding morning. Gabi and her bridesmaids relaxed in a suite dedicated to ensuring they would have a comfortable morning. We encourage you to select a wedding morning location that will be comfortable for you and your ladies, and that is easily accessible to your venues. Have a backup plan, in the event you run fashionably late, and remember to soak in every moment!
