We loved helping April and Mark with their wedding plans and enjoyed each and every time they came up from Tucson. Their intimate wedding ceremony was held on the Poco Diablo golf course with spectacular views of Elephant Rock. Mountain High Flowers decorated a lovely wedding arch for the ceremony and the couple looked so happy and full of love.

Rev. Ken Froessel, Sedona Wedding Officiant, performed the wedding ceremony in front of their family and friends. The ceremony was so beautiful and there were so many personal touches in the wedding. Brides for Brides were their professional photographers.

Another of our May couples, Steve and Kassie, are big fans of Poco Diablo Resort. We hosted their May wedding in 2011 and they came up last year for a visit, with another visit scheduled next month here at Poco. Their wedding was an exciting event with Native American Dancers and Performers kicking off the wedding celebration. We still talk about their wonderful wedding here at Poco.

April and Brian’s wedding tool place over the Memorial Day Weekend last year. The couple visited a number of time from Tucson and we loved their color scheme and decor.  Dancing on the Rose Terrace was great fun and everyone had a wonderful time.

We were honored to host two additional weddings at Poco Diablo Resort this past month. When we first met Thomas and Patricia, they knew exactly what they wanted for their wedding in Sedona. They reserved the Poco Diablo Ballroom one year in advance and had their theme all picked out.

When we talked about the colors for the their wedding, Patricia and Thomas told me that they were going to have a Superman theme for their wedding. We were excited that our linen colors worked out for this special theme and we were really looking forward to their fun and unique wedding.

We enjoyed working with Patricia and Thomas on the months leading up to their wedding and always anxious to learn more details about their wedding decor.

Thomas and Patricia held their wedding ceremony on the golf course facing our garden gazebo. The rose bushes were just starting to bloom and the golf course looked emerald green. Patricia was stunning, hair and make up by Chic Salon and we loved her wedding gown. She looked so lovely – Thomas smiled as she approached the ceremony site.

The wedding ceremony was wonderful and contained a lot of humor. Shondra Jepperson set up equipment on the golf course for ceremony music and photographs were captured by Kip Rustenburg.

The rose petals placed on the aisle by Mountain High Flowers was made in the Superman logo. It was very unique and added a personal touch to the wedding. We loved all the special touches Thomas and Patricia added to their Sedona wedding.
