Van Damme Weddings/Sedona Wedding Studio Featured In Phoenix Bride and Groom Magazine

Van Damme Weddings designed shoot of casual elegance in the rustic vineyard setting of DA Lodge is featured in the winter/spring issue of Phoenix Bride and Groom magazine.

The collaboration of talented Sedona Wedding Studio members resulted in this inspirational design that reflects a southwest image not often imagined by brides that live on the east coast or Midwest.  In the midst of the rustic country feel is incorporated a sense of casual elegance that might be found in the Italian countryside.

Jim Bullock and Ken Heflin, designers at Events by Showstoppers created the most incredible floral; Carefully placed stems in vintage bottles were on tables and then hung from the enormous cottonwood trees at the ceremony site.

The ever-talented team at Sedona Bride, Katrina Wallace and Andrew Mejia captured images.

This is a shoot that keeps on inspiring. Much more coming up.
