Sedona Perfect Summer Wedding

We love this Creekside wedding. It is filled with family, friends, fun, lots of love and a gorgeous bride and groom. The bride was stunning in her Monique Lhuillier gown. Every beautiful moment was captured by Cameron & Kelly Studio

Samantha and Brenan wanted a wedding with a backyard feel. After looking at several venues they chose the charming Creekside Inn.  Nestled on the banks of Oak Creek, with lush lawns and beautiful old trees, it gave the couple the perfect setting for their wedding day.

Working closely with Samantha for almost a year we created her “backyard wedding” with wood ceremony benches; bare wood estate tables, small bud vases with a variety of flowers that looked fresh picked from the garden. There were so many details that made this wedding personal and charming. Samantha’s super talented friend, Carly Bennett, created a chalkboard menu on an old door and chalkboard sign for the wine barrel bar.

As a surprise for the groom Samantha had her paper designer make a special sign for the Junior bridesmaids to carry that said “Here Comes your Buddy” a nickname that has stuck with the couple since they started dating as “buddies’.

Rather than the traditional wedding cake, the couple had various flavored miniature Bundt cakes. They also had a popcorn table where guests could fill bags with flavored popcorn; the sign read “Poe Corn” Poe the groom’s last name.

The ceremony was held on a shaded lawn near the creek. Guests then enjoyed cocktails and hors d’oeuvres on the upper patio/lawn. Dinner was held under a clear top tent strung with bistro lights. We were all obsessed with the beautiful tent where the crowd danced the night away.
