Sedona Creekside Wedding

This couple stole our hearts from the beginning of the planning process until the very last dance of their wedding. They were involved, excite and enthusiastic about their wedding and inviting their closest friends and family to join them in beautiful Sedona, AZ for a week end of hiking, sightseeing, food and wine and laughter, with a little yoga thrown in for their community of yoga enthusiasts. The ceremony was held Creekside at the lush Los Abrigados property. The bride and groom DIY’d a beautiful invitation suite, the escort cards and holders and signage.. The highlight for me was that the groom took the time in his welcome speech to personally thank all of his vendors for their exceptional work.

From the Bride:

We met long before professing our love. Dennis is a Bikram instructor, Jennifer a long time Bikram yogi. Our yoga relationship grew into an eight year friendship, and finally into a lifelong partnership after a yoga retreat to Spain in 2015. Dennis is a very big fan of Maynard Keenan, and wanted to go back to Sedona and Jerome, where he had visited many years ago. And so, shortly after our Spain trip, we took a road trip out to Sedona.   We both fell in love with beautiful Sedona and its’ magical surroundings. As wine lovers, we also fell in love with the local wineries. And so when it came time to planning our wedding, we just knew Sedona would be the place.

The planning and the day could not have been more perfect and beautiful because of our planner Margaret. I had so much fun researching and working with Dennis and Margaret to make the vision come to fruition. Being a destination wedding, it could have been so difficult and a disaster, but we trusted the best and never questioned her advice or assurance. The best part of planning was when Dennis and I made a trip prior to the wedding to meet Margaret and all of our vendors she recommended. We immediately felt calm and so very connected with everyone involved in our wedding. At that time, we knew everything was right and that we were in the right place with the right people.   The day itself, of course the best part of the day was seeing one another for the first time. You can’t beat that – planning this day, and that split second you plan so long and hard for suddenly presenting itself.   Nothing else matters at that moment.

Thanks to a great team of the following vendors for helping create a memorable event for Dennis and Jennifer

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

EMERALD-PANTONE COLOR OF THE YEAR

This year, Pantone’s color of the year for 2013 is Emerald. Emerald green represents balance and harmony. Van Damme Weddings used the color in their table design for Sky Ranch Lodge at the Sedona Wedding Studio bridal boot camp. The color emerald lends itself to a variety of feels-from elegant to casual and edgy. Margaret went with a casual funky feel and paired it with silver/grey and black.  The ombre escort cards were a fun project using paint chips to create a budget friendly DIY element. Photographs of the table and the event were taken by Katrina Wallace and Andrew Mejia of  Sedona Bride Photography.

Sedona Wedding Cakes

Award winning wedding cake artist Donna Joy of Sedona Sweet Arts has done it again.  This is such a fun, whimsical and beautiful cake. The cake is inverted and custom made for the bride and groom. The bride has allergies so Donna made the top tier of non-dairy hazelnut latte. Yummy. The sides are adorned with sugar paisleys and dots and the fan top from sugar. The adorable bride and groom penguins were provided by the bride. Donna specializes in making delicious gluten free and dairy free wedding cakes. This cake makes me smile!
