Our next stop on the mini wedding extravaganza leads us to Sedona, Arizona – the land of gorgeous panoramic views and artsy types. We love both and love even more how they came together in this beautiful, intimate wedding set in the red rocks of Sedona. Twin Lens Photography outdid themselves with this one. We are talking some serious delicious imagery with a side of bright starry nights. For more fabulousness, click right here.
For our wedding, my fiancé and I envisioned an intimate affair with our closest family and friends. Since our loved ones are spread all over the country, we were open to any destination. When we stumbled upon L’Auberge de Sedona in Sedona, Arizona, we knew right away it was the perfect place. The red rock views were breathtaking, the accommodations were luxurious, and it had the rustic feel we were looking for.
When we started planning the details, Style Me Pretty gave us daily inspiration. We loved seeing how couples incorporated unique ideas and personality into their celebrations. It helped us come up with our own little touches, like using a canvas and paints for our guest book (I’m an artist) and having a cake covered in coconut (fiancé’s favorite). The stone ceremony was one of our favorite things. Guests had been asked to find and bring a small stone, and during the wedding ceremony they were asked to hold it and say a prayer. We’ll be able to keep the stones – with their prayers – in our home forever.
We are especially indebted to SMP for helping us find the most amazing photography team ever, Twin Lens. When we saw Kitty and Craig’s work, no other photographer would do. And on top of their profound talent, they are the sweetest people ever. We could not be happier with our choice, and I am so thankful to them for giving me what I believe to be the best, most beautiful wedding photographs that I’ve ever seen. We will be forever grateful to Sandy Walker of In Awe Weddings & Events for making the wedding planning and our special day so wonderful. I don’t know how many times throughout the planning process that I told Sandy she was the best thing that ever happened to me, and I couldn’t have meant it more. She was professional, creative, patient, and wonderful in too many ways to list.
