Details make every wedding unique by bringing out the distinctive personalities of the couple. The wedding of Lisa and Ryan was a true fusion of heritages loaded with great details.
Lisa, a gorgeous bride of Native American ancestry , wedded her handsome groom Ryan, who is of Korean decent, at Sedona’s popular Sedona Golf Resort. The lovely photography is by a talented photographer new to the Show Stopper’s blog. Kristina Toddy of EOL Photography captured all the emotion and details beautifully. We hope you like the story told with these delightful images as much as we do.
Meet Lisa, our stunning bride. Lisa planned every detail of this wedding herself and we could not be more pleased with the tasteful results. The colors she chose were blush, ivory, pinks and turquoise. As you will see, it was a gorgeous and romantic color palette. Her love of turquoise is seen throughout the wedding, both in use of the color turquoise and the actual gemstone found all across the Southwestern United States. With the assistance of Katie Draxler Hastings, event coordinator at the Sedona Golf Resort, everything went perfectly as planned.
Our lovely couple, Ryan and Lisa, were ready for a splendid wedding day.
