Fall Sedona Wedding, II

We could not get enough of this wonderful wedding, the bride and groom, their families and fun loving friends.

We love, love the details that make your day personal and memorable here at Van Damme Weddings. These small touches add charm to your wedding and make your guests feel special.

Daryl and Kyle thought of and included so many personal details in their wedding day. Signage included hand painted wood signs for the specialty cocktail “You’re the Bees Knees”, Hot Apple Cider and GORP table. Initial letters of the bride and groom sat on the guest book table, which held a Polaroid camera for guests to take photos of themselves and tape in the book with their message for the bride and groom. There was a large mirror on an easel to welcome guests to the ceremony. Program cards were handed to each guest coming into the ceremony. Escort cards were held on vintage keys and made it easy for guests to find their table. Daryl took different styled picture frames and inserted photos of places the couple have visited to place at each table. There were also lots of wonderful photos of the couple placed throughout. A basket of warm fleece blankets were available to guests when the evening got chilly.

Congratulations Daryl and Kyle. It was a wonderful day.

 

Thanks to Matt Simpkins for all the fabulous images

Fall Sedona Wedding

A perfect way to end our wedding season is this beautiful wedding. The bride and groom are a dream couple, beautiful, and gracious and so in love.

Daryl and Kyle’s Sedona wedding was held this fall at L’Auberge de Sedona. Daryl and Kyle wanted their day to reflect their love for each other and time spent in “the city of love” Paris. It was the perfect mix of warmth and elegance and a fête champêtre. (Garden party)

The bride chose a natural color palette of dusty rose, ivory, and taupe, punctuated with terra cotta. She wore a pearl beaded cap sleeve gown from Sarah Seven Her bridesmaids were in BHLDN gowns of different styles and color, while the groomsmen wore rich brown tweed suits with vests from J Crew.

Daryl and Kyle incorporated so many great personal details to their day. Escort cards were placed on individual skeleton keys. Table names were favorite places of the bride and groom.  A gorp table was available for guests to fill bags with tasty treats. There was beautiful hand made signage and the couple provided warm blanket throws for guests to use when the night got chilly.

The couple’s love of the outdoors gave the affair the look and feel of the French countryside. Relaxed yet elegant. Songs they heard while strolling the streets of Paris inspired music. Daryl’s friends sang at the ceremony. Everyone danced the night away.

There were so many beautiful moments captured by Daryl’s friend and photographer Matthew Simpkins that I will  have to add part II to this beautiful wedding.

A huge thanks to all the vendors that participated in this beautiful day
