On Saturday, August 29th, Tlaquepaque hosted two weddings. Heart of Sedona weddings planned the wedding of Tanya Bowes and Jeffrey Attarian. Rev. Andrew Murphy performed the intimate wedding ceremony in the Tlaquepaque Chapel. The guests enjoyed lovely flute music performed by Oman Ken . The amazing flowers were provided by Events by Showstoppers . Artistic photographs were taken by Michael David, Taltos Productions . The lovely wedding was planned and coordinated by Laura Maralakos, Heart of Sedona Weddings . The wedding dinner was held at Cucina Rustica in the Village of Oak Creek.
At the same time, Cammie Burford and Ben Oksman were holding their wedding ceremony on the Patio de las Campanas. The wedding reception followed on the Calle Independencia.
An exciting element for Cammie and Ben was the fact that Cammie’s dress was purchased at the Manhattan bridal salon Kleinfeld and her journey was captured by TLC’s popular television show “ Say Yess to the Dress “. This was very exciting for us and we have to agree – the dress was amazing.
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.
