Jeanette and Mark’s Wedding Ceremony

Everyone knows that one of the most popular months for a wedding is June, the month that derives its name from Juno, the Roman goddess of marriage. It was thought that couples who married in June would be blessed with prosperity and happiness as Juno was the protector of women in all aspects of life, but especially in marriage. Jeanette and Mark held their Poco Diablo Wedding on the 2nd Saturday of the month and we were so happy to be able to host their beautiful wedding at our resort. We enjoyed working with them throughout the months leading up to their wedding day and were so excited when their wedding day was here.

Jeanette and Mark’s Wedding Ceremony

Their wedding ceremony was performed by Anthony Flesch beneath our stately weeping willow tree. One of the few gazebo venues in Sedona, our resort is very popular for weddings. The golf course looked green and lush and the sky was clear and blue.

Poco Diablo Resort is very lucky to experience the love and excitement of a Sedona wedding and Olivia and Jonathan’s wedding was one of our favorites! Although the couple planned their Sedona wedding from the East Coast, their destination wedding went off like clockwork. We truly enjoyed working with Olivia and Jonathan and we were absolutely thrilled that they chose our resort as their wedding venue. The wedding guests came from near and far and we were astonished by their benevolence and kindness that was shown to each one of us.



Jonathan and Olivia did a fantastic job with the design and theme of their wedding and we loved it. They incorporated their brilliant wedding colors in all their decor and ornamentation. The stunning wedding floral was created by Mountain High Flowers and was absolutely breathtaking.


Olivia’s hair and make-up was fabulous and our stylist Lindsay Roybal from the Poco Diablo Spa did an outstanding job. We love how Olivia sparkled on her wedding day in her sensational wedding gown. A perfect celebration with so much joy and happiness shared by all.


The wedding ceremony was held on the golf course with views of Elephant Rock. The weather was perfect and the sun was shinning down with support. Formal wedding portraits were taken throughout the evening by Lia’s Photography who even dressed in the wedding colors. Husband and wife team Lia and Max were phenomenal and professional creating amazing photographs all night. We enjoy sharing some of them with you.


The wedding reception was held under the lights on the Canopy Patio. Guests enjoyed a delicious buffet prepared by Chef Felix and his staff. A great selection of music was provided by Bobby Russell, Sedona Sounds DJ, and everyone danced up a storm during the reception. You can see how much everyone enjoyed the evening. It was truly a wonderful celebration of love and marriage. Great family, friends and affection throughout the wedding event.






We were honored to work with Jonathan and Olivia, and honored to host their flawless wedding at Poco Diablo Resort. We can’t wait until they return to celebrate their one year anniversary and they will be most welcome!
