The wedding season is winding down in Sedona and it has been a year of many beautiful weddings. The spring was challenging with the very wet weather that we had.
Rain represents many things in different cultures some of which include fertility, cleansing, unity, renewal, and tears, on the positive side.
This superstition tends to have been interpreted by many different cultures, making what we hear today a mixture of many ideas and beliefs!
All brides of course wish for beautiful clear skies and perfect temperature for their day. Abbie and Chris’s wedding looked like it was going to be that perfectly clear day when it began to rain the night before. The weather cleared in the morning and we were all hopeful that the day would continue to be dry. It began rain shortly before the ceremony and continued all evening. With some quick moving about, a back up tent and some incredible vendors the wedding turned out beautiful. The beautiful thing about the entire wedding was the attitude of a very easy and accepting bride and groom who went with the flow, were present in every moment and were totally happy and in love.
The bride wore a fit-and-flair vintage lace wedding dress from the Martina Liana collection. Bridesmaids were in Jenny Yoo Evening Blue gowns.
The estate tables were designed with very long and low garland of greens and seeded eucalyptus, Italian ruscus, ivy, and myrtle, dusty miller, seeded eucalyptus and magnolia. Floral to include dusty sage green succulents, eryngium thistle, white hydrangea and white Star of Bethlehem The wedding details were personal and lovely. Many were DIY’d by the very talented bride. We loved that Abbie had sewed into the underside of her wedding dress a heart shaped piece of denim from her dad’s blue jeans. It was a very intimate and lovely evening celebrating love with close family and friends.
