Ken and I are very fortunate to be chosen to do so many weddings in Sedona and are grateful to all the couples who have given us the opportunity. Sometimes there are couples that we simply will never forget. Marissa and John are just such a couple. Marissa’s mother, Ellen, was also a complete joy. We really loved working with this family.
The planning process was a wonderful experience on several levels. Fist of all we had the dream coordinator that partnered with us all the way from L.A. Rose Forbes, of Two Tree Events, is at the top of her game. We absolutely loved working with her over the past year. Her skills and experience cannot be surpassed.
The Spirit Song overlook at L’Auberge Of Sedona has one of the most beautiful views in Sedona as you can see in these gorgeous images provided by Michael Segal Photography. L’Auberge stands unmatched in it’s majestic views, world class service and luxurious amenities.
Grey, muted lavender, ivory, dusty purples and shades of green were the colors we were asked to use. This particular color palette compliments the gorgeous landscape in the distance. Several times we have been asked to do variations of this set up and it always turns out wonderfully.
The birch limb Chuppha was constructed on the deck of the Spirit Song overlook. We decorated it with magnolia foliage, assorted rose varieties, hydrangea and smilax vine.
Lavender, ivory and grey hues are such great colors to use in Sedona.
We chose an old Chinese wedding chest as our ceremony table, and draped it with a floral garland.
John’s boutonniere was perfectly coordinated with his formal attire.
Marissa was thrilled with her bouquet which featured amnesia roses, scabiosa pods, succulents, clematis, hellebores and dusty miller.
The bride’s maid’s bouquets were smaller versions of the bridal bouquet. The color worked wonderfully with their periwinkle dresses.
An old vintage birdcage served as a place for guests to drop off cards and notes as the approached the ceremony site.
The details in Marissa and John’s wedding were practically endless. We were fortunate to have Julie Gibson of Studio Grace design the paper products and signage. From designing the monograms to selecting great papers, fonts and colors, she is a pro that never disappoints.
Ken nailed it when it came to the flower selections. The color palette was perfect as was the attention to texture and variety of shapes and sizes.
The sweetheart table was so romantic and warm.
Event Rents provided the perfectly sized tents exactly to our specifications. We actually had two clear-top tents that were connected with a long and narrow canopy so guests could walk between the two structures without being exposed to the weather. They also provided chairs, heating and decorative accessories.
Each place setting had a fresh lavender cymbidium orchid on the napkin.
Jacqueline Rose Cakery did the honors on this beautiful and delicious cake.
Congratulations and thank you, John md Marissa, for letting us help with your special day!
