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.

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.

Casey and Scott’s Sedona Wedding

It doesn’t get any prettier than the Sedona wedding of Scott and Casey. It was the perfect combination of rustic, romantic and total elegance.

From their photographer Katrina Wallace: “There are days in Sedona where the light is so amazing and we wish there was a wedding; when the sky goes dark and the sun peaks through and creates especially gorgeous dramatic light. Casey and Scott had just that”

The drop dead gorgeous bride was stunning in her Martina Liana Vintage-inspired corded lace gown and custom-made cathedral veil. Shoes by Jimmy Choo. Her bridesmaids were beautiful in soft pistachio colored chiffon- each styled differently. The groom and his men were all dashing in modern Vera Wang grey suits.

The floral created by Bliss Extraordinary Floral was lush, soft and romantic.

Long bare wood feasting tables were filled with an abundance of lush floral in birch containers, Spanish dried moss, vintage ribbed glass mason jars, lanterns and lots of candlelight. Tiny Potted Succulents, hand wrapped in butcher paper tied with a cord and tagged with guest names served as escort cards and favors.

Casey carefully included so many personal and heartfelt details to her wedding. A brooch that belonged to her Nanny was on her bouquet. Also special to Casey was her wedding band that was handed down to her by her paternal grandmother, her Grammy. Casey’s mom did the hand painted Mr. and Mrs. Signs. All the small touches that make a wedding a memorable affair were in this Sedona wedding filled with love, family and friends. The talented team of Katrina Wallace and Andrew Mejia of Sedona Bride beautifully captures this love story here.

Casey and Scott’s love story in the brides own words:

“No one knows exactly how it happens, no one knows exactly why its true but some people are just meant to find each other and someday, somewhere and somehow they always do. Scott and I met on match.com. I had just moved to Boise, Idaho from Fort Myers, Florida for a job opportunity and most importantly to be near my family. I work in the medical field and have crazy hours, so living in a new town and meeting people became a challenge. Scott living over 1,000 miles away in Scottsdale Arizona, also worked crazy hours and was having no luck meeting that special someone. Scott then broadened his search and that is how we met. I was only on match.com for one day; if that is not fate we don’t know what is. I never thought I would meet my future husband online, but sometimes you have to do something you have never done to have something you never had. I knew Scott would forever be my always. (I have that engraved on the inside of his wedding ring. “You will forever be my always.”) Scott proposed on our one-year anniversary on a private jeep tour on the top of Merry Go Round Rock in Sedona.  Sedona has always been a special place for us and that is why we chose to get married there”

Sedona Summer Wedding

Heather and Eric were married on a perfect summer day at Amara Resort and Spa. When I first starting working with Heather she described her wedding day vision as being low-key, modern, subtle and elegant. And it was just that!

Heather and Eric are fun loving and seemed to enjoy every moment of their wedding day. Beginning with their first look to the heart filled ceremony and their seriously fun filled reception it was non-stop smiles. Dueling Pianos kept the guests dancing and entertained.

Heather chose turquoise, yellow, cream with a spatter of greens for her colors. She was a stunning bride and knows how to accessorize. Bright turquoise heels and turquoise bangles set the pop of color to her beautiful gown. She wore her mother in laws chapel length veil for the ceremony.

 Sedona Bride captured the day with these beautiful images, always flawless, always with an eye for that unexpected moment. Wedding Planning by Margaret Van Damme, lighting and floral by Events by Showstoppers, hair and make up by Patricia Vega of Le Petit Spa de Sedona and April Bates of Amara as always on top of all the resort details rounded out this team of vendors. Ceremony music was provided by friends of the couple  Ryan and Betsy Uttech

Sedona Red Rock Elopement

There is something romantic about the idea of running away, just the two of you, to some exciting location, exchanging vows near a creek, a mountaintop or a favorite city.

Allison and Brandon, did just that by eloping to the breathtaking Red Rocks of Sedona.

Allison’s vision was to be married in a late afternoon ceremony outdoors, high in the Red Rocks. Avid hikers, and mountain bikers, Allison and Brandon wanted a casual, relaxed and happy wedding. They envisioned an outdoor dinner under the stars with elegant food and fine wines. Great photos were also high on their list.

The couple’s parents joined them for a ceremony and all were transported via Pink Jeeps to Merry Go Round.  Sedona Bride was there to capture the memories of a lifetime.

Allison took her inspiration from the charm of the bohemian era. Her Free People dress was a strapless pheasant dress with a tiered skirt accented in vintage inspired embroidery. The groom wore a Mexican Wedding Shirt and light kaki trousers. They returned to fine dining and excellent wines on the banks of Oak Creek at the L’Auberge de Sedona Resort.

In keeping with Allison’s theme Margaret Van Damme designed a table of vintage bottles filled with wildflowers, a centerpiece set in vintage milk glass and lots of candlelight. Peacock Flower Co. provided the table floral and beautiful bridal bouquet.

The Event Essentials created place cards and signage for the wedding chairs, which gave the small wedding of six a special and personal touch. Beautiful family crystal champagne flutes in which to toast were brought from home.

Allison and Brandon had a beautiful, unforgettable, planned elopement in a setting that was perfect for two or two hundred.

L’Auberge de Sedona Wedding

This is one wedding that was perfection in its beauty, ease, and super fun loving couple.

Julie and Patrick were married at the beautiful L’Auberge de Sedona Resort last October. While attending the Thunderbird School of Global Management in Arizona the couple had made several trips to Sedona to hike and fell in love with the beauty of Sedona. Julie and Patrick wanted their travel themed wedding to be unique, comfortable and fun, which it was. It would be the first time Patrick’s friends and family from Germany would be meeting Julie’s friends and family from the States. They also wanted to include their beloved miniature schnauzer, Winston in the ceremony. Winston dressed in a tux acted as ring bearer.

The bride wore a stunning Monique Lhuillier gown and her bridal party beautiful rich cranberry gowns. Guests enjoyed fabulous food and wine and danced the night away.
