Planning on getting married? It’s not too late to book an elopement in our intimate Tlaquepaque Chapel for this month! If Tlaquepaque is an oasis in the midst of Sedona’s bustle, the Chapel is an oasis of serenity within Tlaquepaque. Styled as a private chapel, like those adjoining the far-flung haciendas of Old Mexico where a visiting friar or priest would offer services, the Chapel is the perfect place for a truly intimate wedding. Looking through the intricate, wrought iron gates it is easy to be transported into another day and time. The giant, antique doors are flung wide beneath the carved Spanish-style arched doorway of the non-denominational Chapel. The stained glass windows set high into authentic whitewashed adobe walls enhance the hand-carved wooden and leather pews, attractive tiled floor and a spectacular hand painted mural over the altar, all resonate with the loving care that built the chapel over 30 years ago. The Tlaquepaque Chapel was build by Abe Miller as a place of meditation and the chapel made our village complete.
While 30 people can be comfortably seated in pews, additional chairs can be set up in the back for a maximum seating capacity of 45. At the completion of each wedding ceremony the bells in the Tlaquepaque bell tower will ring in celebration and commemoration of your special day.

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.
