Like A Dream

Andy and Jon’s enchanting wedding was a visual feast! As lighthearted as it was sincere, this emotion-swept wedding was embraced by the classic charm of Tlaquepaque’s Patio de Las Campanas. Its timeless arches were filled for this event with long, romantic strings of pink carnations. You’ll see how Andy and Jon blended traditional customs with a breath of fresh air, to create a ceremony and reception that offered us a glimpse into their truly special connection.

And this bride was stunning! Andy’s elegant beauty, combined with her dare-to-be-different wispy blush-pink floral dress, her trendy succulent bouquet which included dusty pinks, desert rose, creams and greens, and her sweet flower crown–all worked their magic to create a brilliant bride to behold! Her groom was the perfect compliment, as Jon was dressed smart, and so charming, in his burgundy brown suit and teal vest.

The ceremony was rich with laughter and love, and the reception was warm and wonderful! Be sure not to miss the reception setup, as the patio was transformed from the lovely ceremony site to the graceful intimate southwestern-style dinner celebration, while guests enjoyed a relaxed cocktail hour on the Terrace at Patio del Norte. And don’t forget to check out the exquisite succulent cake! The bottom tier boasted of chocolate with caramel filling, while the middle tier proceeded with a silky red velvet cake with cream cheese/buttercream filling, and the top tier whispered a soft lemon cake with raspberry filling nestled within. Pure delight!

Andy and Jon, we wish you every happiness imaginable, as your days and nights turn into months and years, and the delightful decades are filled with awesome moments specially planned for just the two of you!

It takes a village, and we had one! We extend our gratitude to the skilled professionals that brought their finest talents to make this dream wedding come true:

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!!

Native Ceremony, Simple & Sweet!

Meet Anne and Aaron, a super-sweet, down to earth couple, who did their wedding day on their own terms, and we loved it! They spent their wedding day eve camping out right here in Sedona, and we’ve included below the photo they sent us as they enjoyed the beautiful sunset.

From Anne’s unique floral wedding dress, to their turquoise wedding rings, to their bare-footed Native American ceremony, this celebration was a distinctive expression of Anne and Aaron’s relationship from beginning to end!

This was the wedding of our dreams and you both [Susan and Jennifer] made it come true! We wouldn’t have it any other way. Thank you so much for working with Aaron and I on such short notice! We will definitely be back to visit again…and with our newest addition, our baby!  
–Love, Anne and Aaron

Thank you, Anne and Aaron, for these kind words, and we can’t wait to meet your new wee one–come back soon!

Susan and Jen are the A team–
I knew exactly what I wanted and these ladies delivered. Always expected some level of decor variance, because that is reality. NOPE! 100% perfection in decor and event management on the night. If you are planning a wedding in Sedona you must meet with Susan!! –Stephanie

Thank you from the heart for this review–your wedding was a blast!

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 by the creek 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!
