Everyone knows that L’Auberge is one of our favorite venues for Sedona weddings. Among other reasons is the variety of ceremony and reception locations. There are so many options that it’s hard to decide. Kiley and Keith’s autumn wedding took full advantage of the red rock views up at Spirit Song overlook for their ceremony. The Creek House Terrace along Oak Creek was perfect for their wonderful reception. The yellow-gold colors of autumn were intense along Oak Creek and the weather was wonderful.
We are very excited to share these gorgeous photos by Andrew Holman Photography. The end results were exactly what we had hoped for. Everyone was so kind and took every bit of advise and planning suggestions we had to offer. We have to mention that the mother of the bride was a pleasure to work with and made us want to go the extra mile.
As guests arrived at the Spirit Song Terrace, the first thing they saw was the sign in table that featured a classic white guitar for everyone to autograph. What a lovely memento to have for years to come! Everyone absolutely loved this creative idea.
Show Stoppers decorated the aisle with smilax vine whips draped all along the chairs to prevent guests from using the bridal aisle for seating, Guests accessed each row from the outside. We purposely sat fewer people in each row in order to make the aisle longer.
Floral decorations were made in jars filled with water and hung on the chairs. They were to be used later on the cocktail tables.
The view from the Spirit Song Terrace is one of the best backdrops in Sedona.
This image shows details of the aisle decor.
The chair decorations included white dendrobium orchid sprays, smilax vine, spider mums, roses and eucalyptus.
Kiley was gorgeous carrying her classic white rose and baby’s breath bouquet tied with lovely vintage Parisian laced ribbon.
The vintage Parisian lace complemented the bridal gown perfectly.
A cluster of white dendrobium orchids made a simple and elegant boutonniere for Keith.
Our friend, Susan Perry of Weddings in Sedona was the officiant as well as the “Day of” wedding coordinator.
Immediately after the ceremony, guests were ushered down to the Creek House deck for cocktails while last minute details were finished before dinner.
The setting chart was displayed on one of our rental easels that had been decorated with smilax vine. String was tied onto the wooden board and the table cards were attached with miniature cloths pins.
We used both rectangular and round wooden tables and chairs provided by Event Rents Phoenix.

The rustic wood theme was carried through with slices of wood that served as chargers. (Available through Event Rents Phoenix )
Wooden blocks were engraved in gold and used for table numbers.
The round tables had gorgeous centerpieces.
Fleece blankets with the couple’s initials were hung over the back of every chair and used as party favors.
Especially beautiful was the sweetheart table. The ceremony arrangements were brought down from The Spirit Song Terrace and placed behind the bride and groom’s chairs. Giant romantic lanterns were just behind the chairs. Together with the lavish floral display on the edge of the table….

Guests enjoyed the evening in a glowing, romantic atmosphere.
The cake (by pastry chef Morgan / L’Auberge ) was decorated with white roses, orchids and spider mums cascading down the side…
More of our popular floor lanterns ( rentals )were used to decorate the stairs and landing that led to the Creek House and deck. These lanterns were used throughout the reception in groupings of three to five. They were decorated with smilax vine and hydrangeas.
Guests enjoyed cocktails inside the Creek House while waiting for the bride and groom to descend the stairs.
Our popular “I DO” marquee sign (rental) fit perfectly on the stair rail.
Another successful and gorgeous wedding planned, styled and executed by Events By Show Stoppers. Thank you, Kiley and Keith!
