October is an ideal time to hold your destination wedding in Sedona and our lovely bridal couple Krista and Nick got married mid-October, 2016. We loved hosting their wedding at Poco Diablo Resort and we wanted to share some of their beautiful wedding photographs with you. A special Thank You to Krista for sharing her professional wedding photographs captured by Photographers Jess and Gene – Birdsong Wedding Photography .

Their wedding ceremony took place on our lush golf course with Elephant Rock in the background. Brilliant colors were incorporated in the scenery touched by the amazing floral provided by Florist – Cultivated Events.

It was a perfect day for the outdoor celebration. Guests proceeded to the Rose Terrace for cocktails while Nick and Krista remained on the golf course for professional (and super fun) photographs.

September is an ideal month to hold a wedding in Sedona due to cooler temperatures and the start of fall colors.  This past September we were honored to host the wedding of Ryan and Carley at Poco Diablo Resort. Our resort holds a special meaning to the couple since Ryan chose our romantic gazebo as the location for his proposal to Carley a year earlier. They knew they wanted to have their wedding ceremony and reception at our resort and we couldn’t have been happier.

Their beautiful wedding ceremony was held near our majestic weeping willow tree enhanced by their lovely floral design and tulle draping. The setting was lovely and Carley looked amazing while she walked down the aisle towards Ryan. Their rustic look included lanterns and flowers which bordered the aisle on this perfect September day.
