A Southwestern Celebration!

The Tlaquepaque Arts and Crafts Village, located in the heart of Sedona, provided the perfect ambiance for Megan and Darren to join their hearts together! We were happy that they chose us to provide our “Day Of” services for their wedding, so they could be free to thoroughly enjoy each and every moment of the day!

Megan and Darren had an awesome time, as you can see from the stunningly creative photos by Addie Mannan Photography. Their special day was filled with an exquisite blend of gentle moments, emotional exchanges, mischievous expressions and gleeful celebrations!

Splendid flowers were provided by Bliss Extraordinary Floral, and at the center of them all was Megan’s unstructured crescent-shaped bouquet, abundantly filled with orange dahlias, white lilac, deep orange peonies, orange ranunculus, light orange garden roses and Queen Anne’s Lace. Megan chose the popular Sedona Beauty Team for her hair and makeup.

Megan and Darren’s lives became as entwined as the bright green ivy vines that arched overhead. They exchanged their loving vows while friends and family happily gave their support to this marriage.

And then it was time to make merry at the reception! The festivities were enjoyed by all, as the evening ended with dancing under the stars.

Megan and Darren, we thank you for inviting us into your incredible day, and we bid you a final farewell, as you continue to transport the joy from your wedding day into all of your future endeavors!

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!

Golden Grace

A shining golden grace was palpable, as it wove throughout Chelsea and Colby’s wedding. From the crisp medallion leaves adorning their romantic and playful engagement photos, to the mid-December glow of the setting butterscotch sun, as it slipped through the canopy of leafy trees to catch a glimpse of that delightful moment, the First Look. It was nestled in the cozy courtyard of the El Portal hotel, where our bride and groom set eyes on each other for the first time on their wedding day. With their cherished teacup Pomeranian Chi Chi (proudly displaying a natural golden crown) tucked safely under arm, Chelsea and Colby made their way to the charming Chapel at Tlaquepaque. The melodic beauty of Elizabeth Elgin’s classic gilded harp accompanied Chelsea, as she walked arm-in-arm with her beloved and proud parents down the aisle, sprinkled with flower petals complimenting her splendid bouquet of deep reds and maroons. All of the floral designs were meticulously created by Sedona Fine Art of Flowers. The sweet affection of their intimate circle of loved ones enveloped them, as the spirit of God’s love for this devoted couple infused their sacred ceremony, led by long-time Sedona officiant Anthony Flesch.

Before, during, and after the ceremony, expert photographer Andrew Holman could be found lending his gifted eye to every shot. Our newlyweds were so taken with his work, that he is now their official family photographer!

The ambiance of Tlaquepaque with its holiday décor made for an especially festive backdrop, and although well past Autumn, there were wispy, autumnal-like leaves carpeting the ground. We’d like to give a nod of appreciation here to the unsung heroes behind Tlaquepaque that made the magic of Chelsea and Colby’s wedding happen, owner Wendy Lippman and manager Liz Mohler.

After the photos, it was off to the reception! Chef Lisa Dahl is credited for hosting Chelsea and Colby’s reception celebration at the newest addition to her Sedona family of restaurants, the exquisite Latin Inspired Grill, Mariposa. And anxiously awaiting the wedding party’s arrival was a delightfully delicious spiced carrot cake with cream cheese filling, and salted caramel cupcakes by Marla Hutchison Cakes.

Northern Arizona Limousine shuttled our happy couple and guests to and fro throughout the day and evening with elegance, and the expertise of Taltos Video Productions will enable Chelsea and Colby to relive their wedding over and over again throughout the years.

All of the elements of our finest, most complete package, the Tlaquepaque Completar were brought together at just the right times, to create a truly enchanting wedding experience for Chelsea and Colby.

The first definition of grace from Dictionary.com is elegance or beauty of form, manner, motion, or action. This couldn’t more appropriately describe our bride, Chelsea. Their second definition of grace is a pleasing or attractive quality or endowment. The quality of graciousness truly shines in and from her. From the beginning to the end of the planning process, Chelsea showed us nothing but grace. Her kindness is palpable, and when we met Colby, it was clear they were a match made in heaven!

It was our absolute honor and pleasure to plan your wedding, Chelsea and Colby, and we can’t wait to see your family grow over the years, infused with the golden grace of your love!

 

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.

Sacred Native Nuptials

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!

 

Romance That Rocks!

Susy and Robby were a quintessentially stunningly-cool wedding couple! Check out their fashion statements—what a breathtaking dress and trendy suit!! They brought a bit of their hometown Miami spirit with them, to be sure. We were hired for Day Of Coordination, so when we first met Susy and Robby they were dressed to perfection. Their beauty and chic style were matched only by their kindness of spirit. These two were shining on every level!

Our happy couple exchanged their vows with panoramic red rocks and the quaint city of Sedona as their backdrop, at the ceremony site of Sky Ranch Lodge. Then we saw them off to Huckaby Trail for some up close and personal romantic red rock photos. Afterwards Agave of Sedona was the stunning setting for the time of their lives celebrating their marriage with family and friends.

Susy and Robby chose Mike Olbinski Photography to bring their special day to life, and Sedona Fine Art of Flowers tastefully added succulents to elegant arrangements, bringing a southwestern flair to the day. Our own Susan Perry wove the moments of the day seamlessly together, making sure that all was as it should be.

A toast to the happy couple:

“May thy life be long and happy, thy cares and sorrows few;
And the many friends around thee prove faithful, fond and true.
May your voyage through life be as happy and as free
as the dancing waves on the deep blue Miami sea.”

Happiness Always, Susy and Robby!

 

Here Come the Brides!

88_part-ii-first-look

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!

Love at L’Auberge

22.End.Sherri.Rob.LAub.JaneWoods

We were delighted when our friend and former associate of Weddings In Sedona, Sherri, asked us to help plan her wedding! We instantly fell in love with Rob, too, and hit the ground running to bring everything together for their special ceremony and reception at the elegent L’Auberge de Sedona.

This handsome couple (and Ginger, their pup!), enjoyed an intimate ceremony on the banks of Oak Creek, with their closest family and friends, as they nestled beneath the lush green trees that arched overhead.

Sherri’s former boss and personal friend, Anthony Flesch, had the honor of officiating the ceremony, as the music of Eric Miller’s guitar filled the air with magic. Jane in the Woods Photography captured the joy of the day, while Flowers Unlimited brought seasonal color to the festivities with fabulous fresh floral arrangements and personal flowers.

Thank you, Sherri and Rob, for giving us the honor of planning your wedding day—we send you our heartfelt wishes for a lifetime of extraordinary moments together!

A big thank you to wedding photographer, David Sunfellow. He isn’t afraid to go out on a ledge with our brave brides and grooms to capture the perfect moment in the beautiful Sedona sunset.

 

Congratulations to the happy couple! You did it!!
