Sedona Golf Resort Wedding

Heather and David, San Francisco Bay area residents celebrated their wedding at Sedona Golf Resort this fall.  After nine years together, David proposed to Heather at the top of Bear Mountain last year.

Although rain threatened the day, the weather held with enough cloud cover for a beautiful day and lovely images captured by Katrina Wallace and Andrew Mejia of Sedona Bride. Family and friends gathered for a ceremony on the green with Bell Rock as their backdrop.  Guests enjoyed cocktails and hors d’oeuvres on the patio followed by dinner and dancing.

Heather worked with Margaret of  Van Damme Weddings on a classic, elegant décor with Sedona Red Rock feeling. The bride and groom, avid hikers used Sedona trail hikes as their table names. Showstoppers created table floral arrangements in rich fall colors. The beautiful dessert bar co-designed by Van Damme Weddings and Sedona Cake Contour was a taste treat guests enjoyed during the evening. Congratulations Heather and David!

Elegant Sedona Wedding

Sarah and Thomas tied the knot at the beautiful Enchantment Resort this fall. The Mississippi born bride and San Francisco groom met at LSU in Shreveport where Thomas is the program director of Ophthalmology. The couple’s love story began when Sarah brought Thomas homemade corn and crab bisque soup while he was recovering from knee surgery. They were engaged one year later in Sedona on the top of Bell Rock. They are romantics who love to travel so Sedona was the perfect venue for their destination wedding. The couple was married in a Native American ceremony preformed by Medicine Man, Uqualla.  Guests enjoyed cocktails and Hors d’oeuvre on the Agave Terrace followed by dinner and dancing in the ballroom.

Sedona Vineyard Wedding

Valerie and Ryan were married at the beautiful Page Springs Cellars Vineyard in October. The couple, wine club members and lovers of great food were excited to have their wedding at the vineyard. The planning process was interrupted when Ryan’s work took him across the country. Valerie then had to concentrate on wrapping up her job in Arizona, pack up and move to North Carolina pick up the planning again in order to get back to Arizona for the wedding.  The wedding day was perfect. Guests were transported to the vineyard for the ceremony by the creek. Family and close friends enjoyed a sunny afternoon with great food catered by the Heartline Café and carefully paired wines from the winery. Courtney Yeates and Lindsay Katz -Cellist/vocalist and guitarist provided music. Bliss Floral created beautiful arrangements in brilliant fall colors. Iffy Yossifor captured the day and event planner Margaret Van Damme coordinated the day.
