Friday, November 12, 2010.  We enjoyed hosting the intimate wedding of Debbie Welman and Ray Giachetti who traveled all the way from Chicago to hold their destination wedding in Sedona.  Poco Diablo Resort has a close connection with the great city of Chicago as many of our bridal couples originate from the Windy City.  We enjoy working with Midwesterners that enjoy a taste of the Southwest, and Sedona is the best place to get the flavor of Arizona.

The wedding ceremony was performed beneath our majestic weeping willow tree in front of the Golf Course Gazebo by Rev. Andrew Murphy, Heart of Sedona Weddings. There were memorial candles included in the marriage ceremony adding a very personal touch to their wedding vows.  The intimate guest list included Ray’s parents Mary and Nick who have been married for 51 years and live in Presoctt.  Ray’s brother Michael, traveled all the way from Italy to participate in their wedding.

Debbie was accompanied by her mother Janet as she proceeded to the gazebo.  Ray was patiently waiting for his bride as Janise Witt captured the special moments photographically.  Marie Rhines performed lovely music by violin both prior to and during the ceremony.  Her music was enjoyed by all.

Following dinner, guests danced to a variety of music on the Canopy Patio and everyone enjoyed the evening.  When Debbie and Ray first visited Poco Diablo planning their wedding, we felt that November was so far away and then, the next thing we knew, their wedding date was here. We really enjoyed helping Debbie and Ray plan their perfect day and we wish them the best of luck for their future together.
