Sunday, October 11, we hosted a special wedding planned through Sacred Unions . We first met Loriann Reynolds and Daniel Fischer back in April and instantly knew that they had to have their wedding at Tlaquepaque.
Lori and Daniel wanted to have a wedding quite different from their home state of New York. They loved Sedona and thought this would be the perfect place for their intimate wedding. Upon visiting Sedona, they were able to get a great wedding date here at Tlaquepaque and everything else fell into place.
Laura Lane performed a lovely wedding ceremony in the Tlaquepaque Chapel. Flowers were provided by Mountain High Flowers of Sedona. Bobby Russell of Sedona Sounds played guitar during the ceremony. Taltos Productions was hired to take photographs of the wedding. Michael David and Schelli Rothi did a great job taking the professional photographs of the wedding. I am sure Lori and Daniel will have special memories of their wedding here at Tlaquepaque.
Heartline Cafe catered the perfect wedding reception on the Patio de las Campanas. The tables were set up beneath the overhead lights at the foot of the Tlaquepaque Bell Tower. It is truly a unique venue. Bobby Russell, DJ with Sedona Sounds , played great music throughout the night and guests danced up a storm while colored lights illuminated the dance floor.
The amazing cake was created by Donna Joy, Sedona Sweet Arts . Sedona Sweet Arts was awarded the Best Cake Decorating and Best Dessert in Sedona by the Reader’s Choice 2009 through Verde Valley News and Kudos.
We were so honored and pleased to host the wedding of Lori and Daniel. We wish them the best of luck in their future.
There’s nothing quite like falling head over heels in love. Sometimes that love is so strong you just want to run off and get married immediately. Eloping can be crazy and romantic, but there’s still some planning that needs to happen. Yes, it’s true! If you ever considered a destination for your elopement, consider Tlaquepaque’s Chapel in Sedona, Arizona.
There is no right or wrong when it comes to weddings from ceremonies to receptions more and more brides and grooms are personalizing their weddings. Today’s couples are mixing old with the new for ways to make their wedding stand out from the rest. Make your wedding day as special and unforgettable as you both are and put your imagination to good use. Marriage is about two unique individuals coming together as one, so don’t be afraid to step out of the box.
Tlaquepaque has had great brides and grooms with amazing ideas, from dessert bars to candy stations. Ideas range from placing a romantic seating area for the bride and groom to relax and enjoy their evening and guests. You can take it a step further and incorporate sofas and coffee tables to break up a traditional wedding reception set up.
Another great idea so as to not keep your guests waiting taking photos is a First Look. About 70% of couples opt to have a first look before their ceremony. This is where they can capture that special moment and take a minute to breathe and shake off some of that anxiety that has been brewing all day. Some of our photographers have captured some great moments.
We hope you enjoy these ideas and photos.
Guest books have come a long way….
Do something unique and different besides having the boring old paper guest book. Be creative and make “Your Wedding You ” and I think the guest book is a great place to show your personality and have a little fun.
There are so many ideas out there. One if the more popular ideas is using the game Jenga. Using the fun game of Jenga turns blocks into a guest signing success.
You could stack the pieces and have your guests remove their own block and write a message or you could put the pieces into a container of your choice.
There are many ways to create your display, so remember to have fun with it and make it your own. Don’t forget a catchy sign.
Every time you play the game, it will bring back all the memories of your special day for years to come.
Andrea Carusetta, owner and artist of Sedona Cake Couture, created a display cake for Tlaquepaque which is truly amazing and captured the true essence of Tlaquepaque, inspired by the rustic walls and Mexican tile throughout our beautiful village.
