We are very excited that the lovely wedding of Mara and Cole was featured on the Wedding Yentas. You can see the entire event and gorgeous images captured by Tangled Lilac Wedding Photography HERE. Thank you Melissa and Kristen from Tangled Lilac and Alison of The Wedding Yentas for the beautiful feature.
I just love this beautiful engagement session of Airica and Chuck in Sedona. The couple will be married this fall at Creekside Inn. We are very excited to be working with Airica and Chuck in the planning of their day. The stunning images are by Sierra Blanco Photography.
Heather and David, San Francisco Bay area residents celebrated their wedding at Sedona Golf Resort this fall. After nine years together, David proposed to Heather at the top of Bear Mountain last year.
Although rain threatened the day, the weather held with enough cloud cover for a beautiful day and lovely images captured by Katrina Wallace and Andrew Mejia of Sedona Bride. Family and friends gathered for a ceremony on the green with Bell Rock as their backdrop. Guests enjoyed cocktails and hors d’oeuvres on the patio followed by dinner and dancing.
Heather worked with Margaret of Van Damme Weddings on a classic, elegant décor with Sedona Red Rock feeling. The bride and groom, avid hikers used Sedona trail hikes as their table names. Showstoppers created table floral arrangements in rich fall colors. The beautiful dessert bar co-designed by Van Damme Weddings and Sedona Cake Contour was a taste treat guests enjoyed during the evening. Congratulations Heather and David!

Van Damme Weddings and Sedona Bride have partnered in some beautiful weddings over the years and this one is no exception.

I love the lanterns at sunset in Sedona. This image was captured from the video produced by Carl Anderson at one of our favorite venues L’Auberge de Sedona. It was a perfect October evening. I am so looking forward to all the new weddings we have booked for this coming October in Sedona. The lanterns are the work of floral and design specialist, Showstoppers.
Paul of anapaul photography sent over this New Years Day Sedona wedding. Southern Californians Alison and Ricky braved a very cold day and had their beautiful wedding at the Chapel at Tlaquepaque. The weather did not put a damper on the fun or beautiful smiles of this couple.
The husband/wife photography team of Paul and Anmarie captured some great images in Sedona’s spectacular Red Rocks. Their photography is modern, artsy, a little edgy and definitely fun. See the entire post here.
Sedona has some exceptional photographers to capture your wedding day. One of our finest is the husband and wife team of Katrina Wallace and Andrew Mejia of Sedona Bride. On a recent winter day they photographed the wedding of Alisha and Brian in the Red Rocks. I love the pop of blue in her flowers and necklace against that fabulous mountain backdrop.

This is what Sedona is all about. I am always excited when I see the gorgeous photography of Cameron Clark of Cameron + Kelly Studios. Cameron sent over this stunning image taken a couple of weeks ago when Sedona had its first snow of the year. The snow just dusts those Red Rocks and creates a scene like no other. Cameron captures the Red Rocks as well as the spirit of the wedding couple perfectly. Check back for some fantastic special rates from Cameron + Kelly Studios.
Jessy and Kevin were married last week end on the hillside lawn of L’Auberge de Sedona. Close friends and family gathered on this beautiful fall evening to witness the ceremony performed by Margaret Van Damme. Ceremony and reception music was provided by Bobby Russell. The images of this lovely couple were captured by the fabulous Heather Kadar. Check in later for more photos on Heather’s site. I love the shades of orange, blending in perfectly with Sedona’s Red Rocks. This is what a wedding in Sedona is all about.
Pamela Duffy sent these beautiful photos of our recent wedding with Kate and Scott. Their intimate gathering of friends and family was a dream come true for this couple from Massachusetts.
The ceremony was held on the banks of Oak Creek at Red Rock Crossing. The rain that threatened the outdoor ceremony would not dampen the high sprits of the bride and groom and their guests. The ceremony was performed by the groom’s brother, Mark and bride’s sister, Erin.
The bride’s bouquet of Ivory roses, dendrobium orchids, peonies and green cymbidium was created by Ken at Events by Showstoppers.
Guests were transported by Sedona Trolley with the bride and groom and wedding party returning to L’Auberge de Sedona in transportation provided by Northern Arizona Limousines
Cocktails and butler passed Hors D’ Oeuvres of wild mushroom stuffed puff pastry; grilled jalapeno, cilantro roasted chicken and cheese quesadilla; house smoked raspberry salmon cigars and tarragon lobster croquet monsier were served on the terrace of the Creekhouse.
When the bride and groom arrived they were met with a human arch of sparklers.
After dinner, the bride and groom choose to serve their guest the beautiful cake by Sedona Cake Couture themselves.They felt this was a much more personal touch and indeed it was.
The evening concluded with dancing, dancing and more dancing.
Music was provided by Artists In Rhythm for the cocktail hour as well as the ceremony. Other contributors to this fabulous wedding are Patricia Vega, hair and make-up and the outstanding staff at L’Auberge.
Sarah, the grooms mother and master gardener created exquisite centerpieces of southwest succulents in an elegant way.
