Sedona has a wide range of music options for your wedding and we have been so lucky to experience  a number of professional wedding vendors here at Poco Diablo Resort. There is nothing like a live musician to perform at your wedding ceremony and we are happy to recommend the following musicians to accompany your intimate wedding ceremony at the golf course gazebo at Poco Diablo Resort.

If you want to make sure everyone has a great time and really enjoys your memorable wedding ceremony, no one can do a better job than a professional DJ who can act as your MC, getting everyone out of their seats for a good time.  Over the years we have experienced a range of Disc Jockeys, many of them with a passion for music and great desire to entertain your guests.  Wedding professionals can add colored lighting to your dance floor with personalized initials or names which really make the reception unique. You will always get to hear the music you request and they will play your songs in your order of choice. You can’t beat having such personal and professional service at your wedding event.

Poco Diablo Resort has been hosting weddings for Sedona Brides for over 30 years. It is one of the most spacious venues in the area and few places can offer eight acres of ponds, trees, green grass and red rock views. This is one of the many reasons Poco Diablo Resort is so popular!

Our staff loves weddings and no one enjoys the face of a smiling bride more than us. Over the years, we have hosted hundreds of weddings at our resort and no one could be happier.

Everyone loves a wedding and we work extra hard to make sure our bridal couples experience their dream wedding at Poco. We have received wonderful reviews on Wedding Wire and the praise comes directly from our Sedona brides.

There is energy and excitement in New York and a wide range of bridal dresses and veils.
