Emily & Ben

March 6, 2010 at Desert Botanical Garden in Phoenix

Ben Himmelstein had planned to ask Emily LaChapelle’s father for his daughter’s hand while skiing in Park City, Utah, but five days before the trip, Emily broke some news of her own: She was pregnant with the couple’s first child. Fast-forward a year and a half, and Ben and Emily’s 9-month-old son Elijah rode down the aisle of their wedding ceremony in a fire truck to deliver the rings. Afterward, 75 guests joined the couple in an intimate coral-and-gray reception, where they sipped prickly-pear margaritas, dined on a Tuscan buffet, swooned to a jazz trio and rocked out to an iPod playlist created by Ben.
