Our Lovely Bride Lynn Following Her Photo Shoot on Schnebly Hill Road
Saturday, April 9, 2011. Poco Diablo Resort was thrilled to host the wedding of Virginia Lynn Peterson and Andrew Long last weekend. The wedding was planned by Susan Perry with Weddings in Sedona and we enjoyed hosting the event. As soon as you met the lovely couple, you could not help but like them so very much. Lynn is such a sweet person; she is kind and thoughtful and the love they share was evident to one and all. Sedona experienced a springtime snow shower on their wedding day, but the wedding was amazing and lovely including the winter like weather.

Andrew and Lynn actually met for the first time in the 3rd grade – many years ago. They met again years later while they were in college and both of them turned out to be living on the east coast. As time went on, their relationship grew and they fell in love – a perfect match. Their dear friends Eric DeSilva and Sherrie Soltis served as their officiants performing their wedding ceremony. Although the weather did not permit them to have a golf course wedding ceremony, it went perfectly on the Canopy Patio. Guests enjoyed the intimate ceremony followed by a lot of fun and enjoyment. There were masks for everyone to wear and toys for the children. The wedding was very festive which was evident by their wedding photographs.
Wedding Ceremony on the Canopy Patio
There were four bridesmaids, a maid of honor, and the cutest little flower girl. We also saw two very professional ring bearers accompanied by five groomsmen. Andrew looked on as Lynn walked down the aisle with Ted Maia.

As you can see, everyone was having a great time – enjoying the festivities and having fun. Andrew and Lynn were surrounded by 76 of their closest friends and family members – they were glowing.
Cheers from the Wedding Crowd

Guests decorated tree with fingerprints for Lynn and Andrew
There were so many personal touches evident in the wedding of Lynn and Andrew. This is a lovely tree that will be cherished by our bridal couple. Each guest made a fingerprint on the tree with their name and this tree was full by the end of the night. It will be a wonderful memento for Lynn and Andrew.
Each Guest Received a Handmade Snow Globe made with Legos
Lynn and Andrew will always remember their wedding day in Sedona. Although there was snow, they were so lucky to get amazing photographs of the red rocks of Sedona covered in Snow. Sedona is beautiful year round – no matter what the season. You won’t find a more beautiful location to hold your special wedding.
