Our adventuresome and strikingly handsome couple, Cecilia and Thomas, became husband and wife high above Sedona proper, at the magnificent Merry Go Round Rock! Bon Miller Wedding Photography caught it all, as the excited bride and groom and their guests traversed the winding, bouncy road in jeeps provided by A Day in the West, to this truly one-of-a-kind setting. Native American Medicine Man Mario Blackwolf, from the Mechica Apache tribe, performed the sacred ceremony, with the smell of sage dancing on the wind, and Oman Ken’s Native American flute music filling the vistas with an ancient spiritual melody.
Upon their return to level ground, they landed at Los Abrigados Resort and Spa. As their guests enjoyed an inviting cocktail hour at Timo Restaurant, our newlyweds snuck off for a few more photos down by the creek. When they rejoined their party, they glided elegantly into their First Dance. Cecilia and Thomas then tipped their glasses together in celebration, as they appreciated their unique cake, the topper being a whimsical expression of the moment that they met—on an airplane!
We send warm and happy wishes to you, Cecilia and Thomas, for a marriage graced with an exciting and romantic road that never ends!
You just can’t get any more romantic and down-to-earth than Cody and Clayton’s elopement at Merry Go Round Rock! Complete with cowboy hat, boots, a jeep and dizzying red rock vistas, this wedding was any country western couple’s dream. Cody’s bouquet reflected her sweet and spunky spirit, and Clayton was as charming as his bright blue eyes!
Our planning brought together the following vendors to make sure the day went off without a hitch (pun intended!): Long time Sedona officiant Anthony Flesch, Sedona Fine Art of Flowers added splashes of color, A Day in the West provided a wild ride, Taryn with Love My Life Photography created photos filled with heart and style, and it wouldn’t have been legal without Alexandra of Weddings In Sedona happily adding her signature as a witness.
“When two hearts make a stand together
On the solid rock of trust
They could be a million miles from each other
And still be side by side in love.
I want to love you like that forever.” –Country Artist, Chris Ledoux
Cody and Clayton, we wish you a lifetime of love and happiness in your home on the range!
Stephanie and Gary were married in the morning on March 30, 2013 on Cathedral Rock, off of Back O’ Beyond Road in Sedona, Arizona.
What made this wedding so unique was the Native American sacred ritual performed by Mario Blackwolf, of the Mechica Apache. In the Bride’s words, “We were blessed with a wonderful, memorable day – everything went off perfectly! My parents were moved by Mario’s words, as were we. I still cry when I watch the video!”
Joining Stephanie and Gary were just a few of their closest family members, with simple and elegant flowers provided by Mountain High Flowers.
Thanks also to Sunfellow Photography and Taltos Video Productions for capturing this special ceremony for us, and to Anthony Flesch, who provided beautiful Native American Flute.
