Last June Poco Diablo Resort hosted the wedding of Jamie and Brad and we were thrilled to see them back at the resort this week celebrating their anniversary. Their lovely daughter Taylor has grown much taller in the past year, enjoying herself by the pool; a fun thing to do in the summertime. We love seeing our wedding couples returning to visit us and wanted to share some of their wedding photos with you. A special “thank you” to their photographer Brian Minson.

Saturday, June 16, 2012. Poco Diablo Resort hosted the beautiful wedding of Cassondra and Joseph this afternoon and we were happy to take part in their celebration. Rev. Tom Rollis performed the intimate wedding ceremony on the golf course at the garden gazebo.  It was a lovey summer day here in Sedona with clear skies offered throughout the day.

The bridal party included three of the cutest little boys you have ever seen. They sure had an abundance of ring bearers to help out. The color theme was lime green and black which was the color scheme worn by the entire bridal party. They matched the lovely nature offered on the golf course with sparkling green grass and majestic trees.

One year has quickly gone by as we fondly remember two of our favorite bridal couples. James and Joy got married at Poco Diablo Resort on June 17th, 2011. Our local couple was great to work with and we are thrilled that we still see them around town. They incorporated Las Vegas with their wedding theme and the event was so much fun. Joy and James were thoughtful and we enjoyed the months that lead up to their special day.  Click here to view more photos by Kraft and Company Photograpahy.

Rachel and Paul live in Chicago and they planned their special destination wedding here in Sedona. Paul’s father lives in Sedona so they had the advantage of having local contacts and on site assistance when needed. The celebration of Rachel and Paul’s union lasted the entire weekend starting with their rehearsal dinner in the Poco Diablo Ballroom that included all of their wedding guests. Saturday, June 18, 2011 they got married on the golf course facing Elephant Rock.
