Sedona Wedding

Randi and Michael were married at beautiful L’Auberge de Sedona resort. Their wedding was casual elegance among close friends and family. The bride chose black and white as her colors. The floral was stunning in pinks, creams and shades of light apricot as accent colors.

Tables were designed with low floral arrangements, mercury glass votives and tall silver candleholders. Linens were white with sheer ivory overlays embellished with small floral in white and gold embroidery. The black chavari chairs completed the look. Paper goods were black and white letterpress. Escort cards hung by black satin ribbon from Manzanita tress on alligator juniper bases.

There were so many lovely details in this wedding. An array of colorful pashima shawls that had been collected by the groom’s mother over the year were tied with personalized black ribbon and arranged in a beautiful African basket for the women guests.

Guests dined on exquisite food under paper lanterns on this beautiful fall evening.

The couple was lovely, lighthearted and truly in love. I especially loved that the bride’s eleven-year-old son escorted her to the ceremony site. It was a tender moment.

Thanks to all the talented wedding vendors that contributed to this beautiful, successful and fun wedding.

Vineyard Wedding

Samantha and Bryan were married October 23, 2010 at the beautiful Page Springs Vineyard. After ten years together and two beautiful children, Bryan and Samantha decided to tie the knot.  The wedding celebration was full of love and small details that reflected the couples love of family, friends, good food and great wines.  Not being cake lovers, the couple passed up the traditional and instead had a pie table. Family members made beautiful and delicious pies that were a hit with all the guests. The estate style seating looked beautiful among the estate vineyards. Congratulations Samantha and Bryan.
