It seems like everywhere one turns, there is something said or written about Tlaquepaque Arts and Crafts Village , the beloved heart-and-soul of Sedona. While Tlaquepaque has a variety of events that regularly happen within her old-world Mexican walls, there is nothing quite like the popularity of weddings. Attribute it to the romance, the architecture, the chapel, the landscaping, charm, singularity… whatever… there is something for everyone at Tlaquepaque, and that “something” attracts brides by the hundreds to have their special wedding day at Tlaquepaque Arts and Crafts Village .
Tlaquepaque Arts and Crafts Village offers Sedona’s only wedding Chapel. Here we see a lovely image by Sedona Bride Photography that graces the cover of Arizona Finest Wedding Sites and Services Magazine. Featured is a rose petal carpet and candle display designed by Events By Show Stoppers and Nectar Design , Tlaquepaque’s in-house floral providers.
As evening approaches, the richness of the Tlaquepaque Chapel becomes ever-more inviting as the sky moves into the “blue” hour. Many photographers consider this as their favorite time of day to shoot. We can certainly see why Sedona Bride Photographers love to shoot during this time.

The creativity of Sedona Bride Photography knows no bounds. This captivating shot, coordinated by the talented Laura Marolakos, of Heart of Sedona Weddings , was cleverly set against an old-growth ivy-covered wall. These walls are literally everywhere on the property, growing there since 1973. Hair and make-up is by Patricia Vega, Le Petite Spa de Sedona .
We love this colorful ribbon-covered tree that is just outside the Chapel.
This sparkling table setting was coordinated by Laura Marolakos, Heart of Sedona Weddings , with flowers by Events By Show Stoppers . Old bottles, paper doilies and assorted candles finished the look that was celebrated with a romantic kiss.

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.
Here is a gorgeous cake from Sedona Cake Couture In this years wedding color Marsala! Andrea handcrafted all the sugar succulents on this beautiful master piece! Andrea displayed this cake at the Sedona Bridal Show and Boot Camp that was held on January 17,2015 at the Hilton Sedona.
It works wonderfully as a base color for your wedding, and it can be complemented either by warm tones, like orange, yellow, or coral, or cool tones, like blue or purple
Catherine and Andrew had a wonderful journey driving across the country this past May together with a planned stop to get married right here at our intimate Chapel. Their immediate family met them here in beautiful Sedona for their wedding ceremony. Serenaded by Spanish guitar, their ceremony was just perfect!
Catherine’s bridal gown had a Western flare to go with her fun cowboy boots and her bouquet which included unique/purple desert succulents.
To end their beautiful wedding, the bride and groom took to the red rocks for some romantic shots.
