Saturday, August 8, 2009 was a charming date to hold a Sedona Wedding. Note cards read 8/8/09 – nice numbers to go along with a beautiful August day in Sedona. The weather was unseasonably cool and a special treat for us who normally experience warm Arizona summers.
In the Tlaquepaque Chapel, Diedre Williams and Daniel Angulo spoke their wedding vows during a ceremony performed by Laura Lane, Sacred Unions. The intimate wedding ceremony was witnessed by Diedre and Daniel’s wedding guests under the hand painted mural at the front of the Tlaquepaque Chapel. One of our favorite photographers, David Sunfellow, took amazing photographs of the wedding couple in the perfect setting of Tlaquepaque.
On the Patio de las Campanas, under the lights and at the foot of the belltower, Melissa Merriman and Nickokas Jensen said their wedding vows as Rev. Philip Waring performed their wedding ceremony. Photographs were captured by Jerry Ferguson of Ferguson Photography. Live video was taken by Jeff Breur and music was provided by DJ Shane Brandolini. The amazing floral arrangements were provided by Heather Minor from Elements Floral Studio.
The bride and groom choose an interesting set up for their reception. Instead of using the traditional round banquet tables, they ordered 5ft square tables for their reception. Heartline Cafe did a great job setting up the reception and providing a delicious plated dinner that included Sirloin of Beef with Brandy Peppercorn sauce, Pecan Crusted Trout with Dijon Cream Sauce and Pasta with Pesto cream topped with sundried tomatoes and pine nuts. The beautiful wedding cake was created by Donna Joy with Sedona Sweet Arts. Each sugar flower was hand made personally by Donna Joy. It was an amazing cake.
Throughout the night, guests danced along with our bridal couple to great music provided by DJ Shane. It was a wonderful evening and a night Melissa and Nick will never forget. They are now off on their honeymoon – the destination a complete surprise to Melissa! I just hope she has her passport. I am so happy I was able to help them with their storybook Sedona Wedding.
