Rainbow Blessing

Kelly and Ken’s wedding was brimming with joy–there’s no other way to say it! You can see the total happiness on their faces, and their day even came complete with a rainbow, blessing the occasion! Agave of Sedona provides an idyllic backdrop, as this couple began the day there with Kelly and her ladies preparing for the day in the exquisite Bridal Suite, while Ken and the guys hung out in a cool outside alcove they’ve affectionately dubbed the “Man Cave.” The enchanting ceremony sweetly unfolded on the Ceremony Terrace, and afterwards family and friends naturally flowed onto the covered Celebration Terrace to enjoy the cocktail hour filled with nibbles and libations to delight the palate! And then it was time to move indoors to the Montage Ballroom for a fabulous dinner, followed by toasts, cake cutting, and dancing, with sincere well-wishing and hugs and kisses woven throughout the evening hours!

If you’ve been to many weddings, or actually even just one, you know that each carries its own personality. Kelly and Ken’s was imbued with sincere devotion and an easy laughter that was enjoyed by all–including us!

Congratulations Kelly and Ken, and may your lives be filled with the kind of endless incredible moments that can only be found with your One True Love!!

Stylish Vintage Charm!

It wasn’t hard to throw our hearts into Stephanie and Chad’s wedding, and as you read the story of their day and look through the photos, you’ll get a taste as to why! All of the intimate details came together seamlessly, one hour after the other, as Stephanie and Chad savored each and every moment of their wedding day. Soft pinks, desert succulent greens, and teal married a unique blend of vintage and contemporary themes, to create a wedding that was as trendy as it was comfy–all to be thoroughly enjoyed by Stephanie and Chad and their closest circle of family and friends!

Each event naturally unfolded into the next: intimate first look, amazing wedding ceremony, stunning red rock photo shoot, easy cocktail hour, delicious dinner, delectable desserts, frivolity at the photo booth, dancing galore, all revealing this couple’s laughter and love, quiet tenderness, and casual delight!

These are the people and businesses that helped make all of this possible, offering their gifts throughout the day:

Gorgeous Gatsby

If ever there was a fairytale wedding, Sarah and Galen’s fits the description perfectly! They chose a Great Gatsby theme at L’Auberge de Sedona: Elegant and chic, and with their meticulous planning, not a detail was overlooked. As you can see from the photos, the wedding was stunning from beginning to end. The love between Sarah and Galen was palpable. Their First Look by the creek was filled with joyous emotion, and was followed by an intimate ceremony up on the SpiritSong Terrace, with stunning views of the crimson red rocks for which Sedona is so famously known.

The springtime garden cocktail hour and reception gathering on the creekside Cottage Lawn provided the opportunity for loved ones to relax and enjoy the lush surroundings and ambiance. The celebration was made even more special, with an exquisite string quartet playing in the background. Birdcages, vases, and the like were filled with fragrant floral overflow, and an abundance of candles and leafy decor graced the tables. This charming couple enjoyed hand-selecting each and every piece, creating a symphony of shimmering charm to the sheer delight of their guests!

Sarah and Galen, we’re grateful to have played a part in your enchanting wedding, and we wish for you a lifetime filled with the kind of enriching moments that you experienced on your one-of-a-kind wedding day!

A World of Magic in Sedona

The enchanted world of Harry Potter served as a bewitching backdrop, as Andrea and Jimmy brought their family and friends together to witness and celebrate their joining. This couple’s joy was palpable, as you can see from the photos, with their laughter woven throughout all of their wedding events! And each event had a different location: their First Look was at A Sunset Chateau, and at the exquisite Agave of Sedona the vows were exchanged on the Ceremony Terrace, the cocktail hour was on the Celebration Terrace, and the reception was in the Montage Ballroom. They even enjoyed a romantic photo shoot at Merry Go Round Rock! Andrew Holman brought his photographic expertise to each shot, guaranteeing memories that will last a lifetime.

The ceremony was graced with unstructured romantic flowers by Bliss Extraordinary Floral, and elegant music flowed from Marion Maby’s violin.

Andrea and Jimmy’s classy Harry Potter-themed reception included a Sorting Hat to guide guests to their seats, with the sign reading: “Catch your key to find your house (seat),” and passages that were turned into paper flowers alongside candles as centerpieces.

From the First Dance, “How You Love Me” to the Last Dance, “Beautiful Now,” Downtown Browne rocked the scene! Reliable and festive Verve Events and Tents supplied the rentals, and our own Susan Perry helped with portions of the planning, and tended to each and every detail throughout the entire day.

Andrea and Jimmy, we are so happy that you chose Weddings In Sedona to partner with you on your special day, and we wish you a great deal of magic and wonder, laughter and love, in all of your future adventures as a married couple!

Tlaquepaque “Best of Everything” Union!

We invite you to take an exclusive journey with us, as we celebrate the marriage of Naomi and Andrew—they came all the way from Virginia to get married in our quaint town of Sedona! We had a blast planning their wedding, and being there on the day itself to watch them infuse their experience with laughter and meaning was truly a gift.

Tlaquepaque lived up to its meaning, “Best of Everything” on the day of Naomi and Andrew’s wedding, a uniquely beautiful backdrop for a uniquely beautiful couple! A symphony of bright flowers adorned the event, as hot pinks and deep purples nuzzled together in bouquets and arrangements bursting with orchids, hydrangeas, anemones, lilies, roses, callas, ranunculus, freesias and stock, all artistically arranged with a “pop of whimsy” by Mountain High Flowers. What a perfect accent to the emerald green dresses Naomi chose for her attendants! Their closest family and friends anxiously anticipated the couple’s arrival, as Eric Miller’s guitar gracefully set the mood with the classic melody of Pachelbel’s Canon in D. At that moment we watched gorgeous Naomi walked down the aisle to meet Andrew, her handsome husband-to-be. The ceremony was performed by our own Rev. Susan Perry, who herself had a hard time keeping her eyes dry!

Then on to the sparkling cocktail hour and stunning reception! Verve Events & Tents set the stage with tables and chairs, specialty linens, dinnerware, and more, creating an oh-so enchanted evening. Filling the plates with delectable fare, and the glasses with luscious libations, was Bonnie Grant and her crew from Rosalie’s of Sedona. The evening was topped off with a simply exquisite lemon lover’s cake with raspberry filling by Marla Hutchison Cakes.

There to creatively capture each memorable moment were top-notch Sedona-based photographers Katrina and Andrew of Sedona Bride. From the casual engagement photos, to the bride and groom “selfie” just after the ceremony, to the quiet moments stolen under an arch made of bricks, and so much more, Sedona Bride was there to capture it all.

Naomi and Andrew were such a joy to work with, that it didn’t really seem like work! They were so loving and inclusive, so responsive and appreciative — what a pleasure! We’d like to take this moment to thank Naomi and Andrew for choosing Weddings In Sedona for their “day of days.” And, we wish you, Naomi and Andrew, a lifetime of delightful experiences, woven together with miles and miles of laughter, happiness and contentment.

Here Come the Brides!

We were so excited to help our two Sweetheart Brides, Terra and Megan, create their one-of-a-kind wedding day in Sedona! The events began with their First Look, and then they went on to take advantage of the breathtaking red rock panoramic views at Back O’ Beyond. Next, and of course, the highlight of the day, was their intimate wedding ceremony, which they shared with the closest of family and friends. It took place on a carpet of sprawling green grass, in front of a timeless terracotta-roofed gazebo at Poco Diablo Resort. A gorgeous photo session followed the ceremony, graced by a magnificently romantic willow tree, with their loved ones (pups included!) by their side. Terra and Megan’s reception brunch played out immediately afterwards in the ballroom, as their true love was celebrated by all.

Thank you, Terra and Megan, for trusting Weddings In Sedona to weave together your stories, laughter, thoughts, colors, tastes and inspirations, to create your extraordinary wedding day!

Also, a shout out to the professional vendors that helped to bring our special Brides’ dreams to life!
