Charlotte and Liam

Charlotte and Liam

About once a year Poco Diablo Resort features an out of town wedding and this year we are happy to post a wonderful wedding in the English countryside. We were thrilled to be invited to Charlotte and Liam’s wedding on September 5, 2015.

The first thing we noticed is that English weddings are a little different than their US counterparts. The wedding ceremony took place at 1:30pm and at the end of the ceremony, their marriage certificate was signed in front of all of their family and friends. The bridal party and their immediate family then posed for photographs for their guests allowing everyone to capture their own pictures of the ceremonial acts.

Wedding portraits took place outdoors following the ceremony and guests enjoyed cocktails and champagne on the golf course. The wedding took place at the Mill Green Golf Course in Welwyn Garden City.  Sitting down for an early dinner, each guest was served a three course dinner including a delicious entree and their choice of wine. The traditional head table was at the front of the reception room where the parents of the bride and groom sat on either side of the couple. We enjoyed the toast made by the best man as well as the father of the bride.

Following dinner, the room was arranged for dancing and the party went on until midnight. In the early evening, appetizers and wedding cake was served along side a colorful candy table. Offering custom photographs of the guests in costume, the photo booth was a very popular location that evening. The DJ brought bright colored lights and other fun items for the guests that included 2 or 3 guitars, microphone and items for those who wanted to sing and play along. It was so much fun and everyone celebrated the marriage of Charlotte and Liam. We were honored to be part of this exciting event.

Trevor looks ahead as Nicole walks towards him, so beautiful and happy. It was a beautiful wedding ceremony on the golf course, in front of their family and friends. The talented team, Taryn and Sara, owners of Love My Life Photography, captured all the special moments at their wedding and we just had to share some of their marvelous photographs with you.

Many people think that living in Arizona is always hot and dry but here in Sedona, we are lucky to actually enjoy four seasons. Due to our higher altitude, we have cooler temperatures and more precipitation including snow! Anytime of the year is the perfect time for a wedding in Sedona at Poco Diablo Resort.

Jennifer's Hair Do with Wedding Veil

Jennifer’s Hair Do with Wedding Veil

Each year we present weddings from various locations including New York, Vietnam and the United Kingdom. This summer we were excited to attend Jennifer and Patrick’s lovely wedding in the Chicagoland Area. It is interesting to see certain wedding trends each year and many similarities to weddings here in Sedona. The main object of each and every wedding is to celebrate the union of two people that love each other and this wedding was the perfect example of the love they shared.

The bridal party prepared for the special day at the Karena’s Salon in Elgin, IL. The entire bridal party along with the mother of the bride and the aunt of the bride had their hair and make-up done while drinking champagne and enjoying breakfast treats in the salon. There was even time before the wedding ceremony for everyone to enjoy a lunch buffet while they were getting into their gowns.

The wedding ceremony was held in the lovely courtyard at the Riverside Receptions in Geneva, IL. The courtyard was quaint with lovely flowers all around. The ceremony incorporated a sand ceremony representing the lives of Jennifer and Patrick. Following the ceremony, guests enjoyed cocktails on the lower level with lovely views of the Fox river. The venue offered guests both indoor and outdoor views of the area. The weather was cool and sunny, a real treat for August in Chicago.

Dinner was held on the upper level of the Riverside Receptions with extra room for the 140 guests attending the wedding.  A delicious dinner was served followed by the creative wedding cake created by The Cakery in North Aurora. The four tiered wedding cake reflected the “Fishing” theme that was prevalent throughout the wedding. We loved all the wedding decor on display with so many personal photographs. Jennifer and Patrick got married on the Anniversary of Jennifer’s parents and grandparents. It was a special day with fond memories of family and friends.

Following dinner, wedding guests danced throughout the night and really had a fun time. What a wonderful wedding in Chicago and we were thrilled to be part of it. Now the bride and groom are off to St. Lucia. What a spectacular location for a romantic honeymoon. Congratulations to Patrick and Jennifer and we wish you many happy years together.
