A Real Wedding in Valley of Fire
Lucky in Love
Isn’t it amazing how some things just wonderfully fall into place? Sweethearts Cassie and Jeremias had this advantage. Stars seemed to have aligned when they met each other.
Cassie was new to online dating sites, but Jeremias’ sweet words in his profile easily caught her attention. The next thing they knew, they were romantically together. Four years down the road and with additions to their life together, they have decided to tie the knot.
This couple who loves the outdoors chose the Valley of Fire as the location for their big day. Again, with luck on their side, their families were also near the area and were able to witness the ceremony. Cassie and Jeremias also liked an intimate wedding, and Cactus Collective Weddings helped them make this happen.
Getting ready in the camper was a fun experience for Cassie and Jeremias. The couple prepping for the ceremony with their few invited loved ones was crazy chaos! But sharing this wonderful moment with each other and with those closest to them is a lovely memory.
Cassie was the classic bride in her long white dress, adorned with a shawl and long veil, and Jeremias looked very gallant in his military uniform. The sage green and deep red accents added to the earthy vibe of the event. The stunning colors and rock formations in the background seemed to be a testament to the traits of their relationship: strong and enduring.
It looks like it isn’t luck that brought Jeremias and Cassie together. Likewise, it is not luck that made them take that walk down the aisle. It is a conscious decision that they made when they were able to see beauty in each other and in the moments they share together.
