Sky Ranch Wedding in Sedona

One of our last weddings of the fall season. This wedding was perfection, A beautiful couple, wonderful family and lovely friends. The heartfelt love and emotion was perfectly captured by thier photographer, Andrew Holman. Thanks to all our talented vendors below that contributed with their skills and love to create Tyler and Samantha’s beautiful wedding day.

From the Bride:

When Tyler proposed to me on top of Baby Bell rock in September 2015, we knew right away that Sedona was where we wanted to get married. With my parents getting married in Sedona, I had always held a special place in my heart for the beauty of its landscape. We both chose to have a smaller, outdoor ceremony so that the amazing red rocks could be fully appreciated! There is truly no other place I can imagine having had my wedding at, and am blessed that we will forever remember how beautiful this day was!

Living in Gilbert, AZ there was initially some concern about how the planning process would work. Without Margaret’s help, I don’t even want to think of how it would have turned out! I had no doubt the entire time that things were going to turn out beautifully. Her communication and precision with details allowed for my mind to be at ease and worry about all the other things a bride finds to worry about! I am so appreciative of all the work that was done to make our wedding day more than we could have ever imagined

Some Like It Vintage

Van Damme Weddings recently designed the ballroom at event venue, Inspirador in historic downtown Chandler, Arizona. The occasion was for their open house and bridal show to benefit My Sisters’ Place, a local nonprofit safe house for women and children.
The title theme was “Some Like It Vintage.” Inspiration was taken from 1930’s Old Hollywood Glam. The ballroom was elegant and sophisticated. The 30 ft banquet table was draped in champagne Lamour and set with white gold trimmed art deco edged china, Gold flat ware and gold-rimmed barware. Old hotel silver serving pieces were used. Small gold beaded lamps lined the table and gave a soft lighting. Black and white photographs of Hollywood stars of the era were set on small ornate gold easels. The color palette of champagne, apricot and sage was incorporated in tall elegant floral arrangements created by Bliss Extraordinary Floral. Beautiful invitation suite and paper goods created by the Event Essentials depicted various gold chandeliers and art deco design.
The escort cards were displayed in a vintage suitcase. On the table were vintage silver candelabra old love letters near a vintage typewriter, opera gloves added to the authenticity.
A gentleman’s cigar table was created with vintage cigar boxes, a 1930’s telephone, chocolate cigars and vintage chewing gum. A tall glass etched vase held the floral arrangement. This was a fun throwback to the era. Our cigarette girl was also a hit. She strolled the ballroom with her cigarette box that contained boxes of candy cigarettes. Pour Masters bartended and served up our signature drink, “Black Dahlia” martini. Named after notorious crime victim Elizabeth Short in the 30’s. Fresh From The Kitchen catered scrumptious food. 1930’s black and white movie “Top Hat” played on a large screen in the ballroom. Professional Argentine dancers Rommel and Daniela performed tango demonstrations on the black and white dance floor. DJ Music by Desert House Productions.  Event rentals by the always helpful Classic Party Rentals. The very talented Brian Hinz captured the feeling of a glamorous affair in these beautiful images.

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.
