Tlaquepaque hosted two wedding ceremonies during the first weekend in February. The town was a buzz due to the 5th Annual Sedona Marathon so we enjoyed visitors from around the country and the rest of the world.
Friday evening, Patricia Davies and Bart Brown spoke their wedding vows in the Tlaquepaque Chapel. This couple has been friends for more than 20 years and they finally decided to tie the knot.
Andrew Murphy with Heart of Sedona Weddings performed the intimate chapel wedding ceremony in front of ten family members. Flowers were provided by Amy Mills with Bliss Extraordinary Floral and Patrick Ki music played throughout the chapel.
Following the wedding ceremony, the entire party went to Cucina Rustica for a delicous Italian dinner. On Saturday, they will be returning to Paradise Valley for another celebration of their loving marriage.
Saturday, we were pleased to host the wedding of Lise Farmer and Oliver McKenney who flew in from Florida for this special event. Kate Freeman with Dream Weddings of Sedona performed the intimate wedding ceremony in front of a small group of friends and family members. Karl F. Mullings took wonderful photographs of the wedding ceremony and reception held at Cucina Rustica.
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.
