Just days before Christmas, Kristelle Love and Benjamin Joquet got married in the Tlaquepaque Chapel. The lovely couple grew up in France and moved to the Sedona area recently. Kristelle is a massage therapist and will be opening a new business in the Village of Oak Creek in 2010.
Carol Marlene Anderson with Lord and Rose performed the very intimate wedding ceremony in the Chapel. Kristelle’s sister took the wedding photographs of the beautiful couple. There were holiday decorations throughout the village which made a lovely back drop for wedding portraits. Kristelle was happy that her father, mother and grandmother could attend the ceremony but her grandfather was in France and was unable to attend. Benjamin had his parents in attendance in the chapel along with other family members and friends of the couple. There were two lovely flower girls and a cute ring bearer helping with the ceremony.
Although we had received snow the evening before the wedding, everything had melted and the temperatures were much warmer for their wedding. The night was clear with the stars and moon above the Chapel Courtyard. It was a perfect evening for the perfect wedding. Congratulations to Kristelle and Benjamin and Happy New Year.
