On Sunday, July 12, 2009, we experienced a different kind of wedding here at Tlaquepaque. Instead of having an evening wedding and reception, Allan Bacon and Jessica McBrearty decided to have a morning wedding ceremony followed by a wedding brunch on the Terrace at Patio del Norte.
The wedding ceremony was held on the Patio de las Campanas in front of 40 of their closest family members and friends. Jim and Ken from Events by Showstoppers created an amazing rose petal carpet runner for the lovely bride. The colors and pattern was spectacular and a Tlaquepaque first.
Showstoppers also created a lovely floral archway for the wedding ceremony. Rev. Andrew Murphy, Heart of Sedona Weddings, performed the ceremony and added a very personal touch to the wedding. Photographer, Pamela Duffy, captured the moments during the wedding ceremony and portrayed Allan and Jessica’s happiness throughout the morning.
The delicious wedding brunch was prepared by Heartline Cafe. The unique tables and unbrellas were provided by TriRentals in Phoenix. Music was played by Charlie Williams during the brunch overlooking the fountain in the Patio del Norte. A special pine tree seedling was given out to each guest as a special wedding favor. Allan and Jessica thought this special gift would be enjoyed by all their guests. One highlight of the reception was the lovely wedding cake prepared by Donna Joy, Sedona Sweet Arts, adorned by handmade sugar flowers.
