Cody and Candra | The Windmill Winery in Florence, Arizona | Rustic AZ Wedding Venue | Arizona Wedding Photographer

I am so fortunate to be a Colorado and Arizona Wedding Photographer. Wedding season in for Colorado Photographers is about June-October, and for Arizona photographers it is October-April. So for me it is perfect to go enjoy mountains and desert all year round! This wedding at The Windmill Winery, in Florence Arizona, was an absolute dream! Florence is one of those middle-of-nowhere places one would never expect to find this hidden gem of an Arizona wedding venue. The Windmill Winery is rustic, but in a clean and structured way compared to most Colorado Venues where you drive up a dirt road and hang out with the cows. I absolutely loved it and especially that little garden! I am jealous that Arizona get’s blooms and green year round. There were actually bees in Candra bouquet the entire day- they didnt bother her, they were just doing their job! The bees got to be a part of the ceremony, family photos and everything haha!

Candra and Cody met when they were only 7 years old in their hometown of Florence, AZ. They were reconnected recently and instantly knew they were meant to always be together! Cody joined the Army and is stationed at Fort Carson in Colorado Springs- my hometown! Candra makes her way out here as much as possible so it was perfect we were all able to connect in Colorado for their stunning mountain engagement session.
