Saturday, August 28, 2010. The weather in Sedona can be unpredictable at this time of year. There was a time when August was not a popular month for weddings in Northern Arizona. That is all changing as each year, we are witnessing more and more August Weddings. Shalane and Lee picked the perfect day for their Sedona wedding. We experienced thunderstorms throughout the night but the skies cleared up and you would not have found a more lovely evening for an outdoor wedding. The temperatures were cooler than normal and there was a very pleasant breeze flowing throughout the area. Lee and Shalane surely deserved the perfect wedding day. They are one of the cutest couples around. Poco Diablo Resort was excited to host their wedding.
Kate Freeman with Dream Weddings of Sedona performed the lovely wedding ceremony at the entrance to the Golf Course Gazebo in front of 80 of Lee and Shalane’s friends and family members. Oman Ken played his magical harp and the mood was captivating. Shalane looked so elegant in her amazing wedding gown – Lee looked on with so much love in his eyes. It was the perfect intimate wedding ceremony.
Following the ceremony, guests proceeded to the Canopy Patio where a delicious buffet was waiting for them. We offered southwestern speciality entrees and Mark had the bar all set up and ready to go. Our servers of the evening were Javier – our PM Banquet Captain, Carol, Dario and Tiffany.
The tables were decorated by Nikki Sullivan, mother of the groom, and her helpers. The flowers were pretty and the colors were just what the couple wished for.
The spectacular wedding cake was created by Donna Joy with Sedona Sweet Arts. The lovely hand made sugar flowers were colorful and original – every detail was perfect. Music was provided by Elijah Smith, Spin Master with DJ E-3-ZEE. Guests enjoyed the music and danced up a storm following dinner. The professional photographer capturing the special memories of the wedding was Christin Terrin, Remembered Forever Creations and Photography.
Our special thanks to Lee and Shalane and their entire family for allowing us to host their wedding. We wish them the best of luck throughout their married life together.
