Sedona Wedding Inspiration

In the office today and deep in the process of spring and summer wedding planning I came across this inspirational and beautiful wedding.

The summer wedding of Caitlyn and Bryan at Creekside Inn is an all time favorite of ours.  They are the sweetest couple ever. They were so much fun to work with and both totally involved in the planning process and details reflecting their great personalities.

They met through mutual friends and after their first date were madly in love. It was the perfect setting, a beautiful day, heartwarming and romantic with all the perfect details. Brides Dress by Pronovias of Barcelona. Bridesmaids wore pale blush dresses from LuLu*s. Guys rocked stylish-trim blue suits. The floral by Events by Showstoppers were lush and to die for. We think these beautiful photos tell the story.

Fall Wedding at L’Auberge de Sedona

One of our last weddings of 2015 was this beautiful pair at L’Auberge de Sedona. Elizabeth and Jason had a wonderful day celebrated by close friends and family. This wedding had it all. A beautiful color pallet of blush, ivory and champagne, a gorgeous, elegant bride in Monique Lhuillier and Jimmy Choos, a bit of vintage, chalkboard signs and lawn games all woven together flawlessly creating a soft, romantic, elegant day. All captured perfectly here by Jamelle Kellly and Hailey Golich of Cameron and Kelly Studios.

Sedona Monsoon Wedding

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.

Spring Sedona Wedding

Sedona weather can be sometimes unpredictable. We had an unusually rainy spring season. This beautiful wedding did not escape the downpour. Our couple, Nathan and Jillian had a cheery and positive attitude about it all and the bride gave the thumbs up to proceed with the outdoor ceremony. It was just the beginning of all the loveliness captured by Sedona Bride Photography. The lush floral, homemade favors and surprise details everywhere honored the couple’s love and made the wedding unforgettable

Sedona Creekside Wedding

This fall wedding has it all. A gorgeous bride and groom, great fun loving family and friends, and beautiful Sedona as the backdrop made for the perfect wedding day.

Jay and Hilary met each other while attending school at USC. Jay is originally from Phoenix, AZ, and Hilary is from Pasadena, CA.

Together for nearly 6 years, Jay and Hilary live in Playa del Rey, CA with their two cats, Nara and Toro. Jay is a video game sound designer and Hilary is an English teacher.

The day was filled with personal touches from the humorous couple. Jay and Hilary personalized signage with quotes from movies they love. Bar menu: “Now I’m lucky if I can find half an hour in which to get funky” –Homer Simpson

Guest Book: “You don’t need a mirror to know you look good”. –Finn, Adventure Time

Welcome: “ We have the tools and we have the talent” -Winston, Ghost Busters

From one of their favorite characters they chose an adorable cake topper of Wall e and Eve. It was a day filled with fun, laughter, and good food and dancing.

Congratulations Jay and Hilary

Romantic Sedona Wedding

One of our last weddings of the year appeared recently on Project Wedding. This was one beautiful couple. Kathy and Matt were married on a clear day in November at the L’Auberge de Sedona Resort.

The ceremony was held Creek Side with a billowing backdrop of pale ribbon streamers and hanging flower vases. The couple included a wine ceremony and had their wedding party join them in their first toast before being pronounced husband and wife.

Kathy chose a stunning Monique Lhullier gown and her bridesmaids were in floor length sapphire blue gowns, matching the day’s brilliant blue sky.

The wedding was romantic, elegant and filled with warmth and fun.

Sedona Wedding-Creekside Inn

Kati and Chad celebrated their casual, yet beautifully elegant bohemian inspired wedding in the natural outdoor beauty of Sedona.

It’s no secret that the Creekside Inn at Sedona is a perfect venue for an enchanting wedding. Tucked away on two acres of woods, lawns and Oak Creek the grounds are covered in a canopy of beautiful Arizona sycamore trees. It was perfect for these two writers and teachers who wanted an intimate easy going and fun day with loved ones. Although both busy professionals, we had a great time in the planning process. We included an afternoon tasting some great craft beers from Sedona that were served to guests. The outcome was a direct reflection of the love for family and friends and each other.

Kati chose a beautiful BHLDN jewel encrusted gown with a small train that pooled perfectly to the floor. It was glamorous with an Old Hollywood appeal.

There were lots of perfect details that made the wedding so personal. A nod to Chads heritage were the Loteria Mexican playing cards framed and used for the tables and as escort cards.

Thanks to a great team of wedding professionals. And a big thanks to Liza Parenti, Kati’s mom who was so hands on and fun to work with. She organized a family basketball game prior to the rehearsal dinner as well as a big family dinner the night before the rehearsal dinner. It was a memorable weekend. Congratulations to all.

BHLDN’s Spring 2015 Wedding Dress Collection

BHLDN”s new collection of weddings gowns has us swooning. This is their largest collection to date with over thirty new gowns. “A collection inspired by lush blooms, trailing vines, and hidden nooks”

We love the romantic feel of these gowns that are part 1930’s Hollywood glamour and part bohemian.

They would be perfect for an elegant ballroom or equally at ease in an outdoor garden. We look forward to seeing one or more of these divine gowns in our Sedona Weddings this year.slide 394112 4819104 free BHLDNs Spring 2015 Wedding Dress Collection slide 394112 4819106 free BHLDNs Spring 2015 Wedding Dress Collection slide 394112 4819110 free BHLDNs Spring 2015 Wedding Dress Collection slide 394112 4819112 free BHLDNs Spring 2015 Wedding Dress Collection slide 394112 4819116 free BHLDNs Spring 2015 Wedding Dress Collection slide 394112 4819118 free BHLDNs Spring 2015 Wedding Dress Collection slide 394112 4819128 free BHLDNs Spring 2015 Wedding Dress Collection slide 394112 4819384 free BHLDNs Spring 2015 Wedding Dress Collection slide 394112 4819480 free BHLDNs Spring 2015 Wedding Dress Collection slide 394112 4819508 free BHLDNs Spring 2015 Wedding Dress CollectionAll photos by Diego Uchitel

Sedona Woodland/Bohemian Wedding

Emily and Marcin decided on a small intimate wedding. They did however; want it to be beautiful and special, evoking all the details of their vision for their day. They chose L’Auberge de Sedona as the backdrop for the woodsy, bohemian and free spirited look. Neutral colors and lots of greenery came together with succulents and antlers for this free spirited look. Events by Showstoppers created the beautiful table centerpiece according to Emily’s vision. It was covered in moss, antlers and cream colored floral with lots of greens, gold candlesticks and tapered candles as well as votive candle light creating a dreamy effect on the Creekside table. Miniature faux antler place cardholders with names of the six guests were at each place setting.

Emily wore a sheer black and white Free People gown. Her bridal bouquet picked up the black and white scheme with anemones with black centers and a black handle. Adorable cat and bear cake topper sat atop the cake. Emily and Marcin’s dog, Meeko played a big part in their day and had his own floral collar.

Rain threatened the ceremony but the sun broke through and Margaret Van Damme performed a Native American Blanket ceremony for the couple with native flutes playing in the background. Katrina Wallace and Andrew Mejia of Sedona Bride flawlessly captured the day and all the little details.

If you are tempted to elope and think the wedding might look plain or boring this wedding is just one example of how stunning an intimate wedding can be. Thanks to all the great vendors that added their talent to this beautiful day.
