Toasting happiness and best wishes to wedding couples have been going on for decades and there are many ways to make your celebration memorable by incorporating your personal touches in your wedding toast. Here at Poco Diablo Resort we include the champagne toast in our wedding packages so you do not have to think of it as an added expense.

Over the years, we have experienced a number of wedding toasts and each one is different and entertaining. It gives family and friends an opportunity to express their feelings about your union and it can be limited to just certain people in your bridal party and parents, or you can open it up to all your guests.

A festive idea for the years following your wedding is to select personalized champagne glasses with your names and date engraved. You can use them to celebrate your wedding anniversaries adding a special touch to the event. Upgraded glasses can also be purchased with a distinct difference than the glassware of your guests. This is, after all, your special day!

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.

The lovely wedding ceremony of Nicole and Preston

The lovely wedding ceremony of Nicole and Preston

Saturday, March 24, 2012. On a gorgeous Sedona day, Nicole and Preston held their lovely wedding at the golf course gazebo at Poco Diablo Resort. The Arizona sun was shinning brightly as Nicole walked down the aisle in her elegant princess wedding gown. We absolutely loved her wedding dress and Nicole was so beautiful. Preston watched on as his lovely bride was approaching the gazebo.

The wedding ceremony was performed by Maria Grace, Two Hearts One Life Weddings, and the setting was very quaint. Harpist Oman Ken did a wonderful job performing their ceremony music. The lovely bridal bouquet was provided by the Jazz Bouquet in West Sedona. There were so many thoughtful details included with their special wedding.

Following the ceremony, guests proceeded to the Canopy Patio for a special wedding brunch created by Chef Felipe Felix and his talented staff. There were delicious entrees added to the buffet that included Chicken Breast with Sliced Apples and Wild Mushrooms along with Beef Tenderloin Tips in Tomatillo Salsa. The Canopy Patio looked wonderful with all the floral centerpieces and wedding decor. We simply loved it!

One of the highlights of the wedding was the elegant wedding cake created by Donna Joy with Sedona Sweet Arts. The delicious chocolate cake was topped by a lovely B and had creative hand designed pink floral scrolls on fresh butter cream frosting. Everyone had a wonderful time and the bride and groom were so happy. We were thrilled to host this wonderful wedding and wish Preston and Nicole many years of wedding bliss. We hope they will return to Poco Diablo Resort for a visit in the very near future.

Jamie, Brad and little Taylor on one of their visits to Poco Diablo Resort

Jamie, Brad and little Taylor on one of their visits to Poco Diablo Resort

Back in September of 2010 we met Jamie and Brad while they were exploring Sedona as the host of their destination wedding. They discovered Poco Diablo Resort on our website and scheduled an appointment for a property tour. We immediately became good friends and saw them a number of times prior to their June 25th wedding.

Jamie and Brad celebrated their wedding with a large number of family and friends. They enjoyed breakfast together each morning while they were in Sedona and I saw them frequently by the pool having fun and socializing. They were calm and cool and well prepared for their wedding.

Jamie was stunning in her wedding gown as she walked down the aisle to the golf course gazebo where Brad stood waiting for his bride. The ceremony was performed by one of our favorite ministers, Rev. Ken Froessel, who is always kind and friendly. Their ceremony was intimate and charming. Their daughter Taylor was a lovely flower girl and really enjoyed the event. Floral arrangements were created by Bliss Extraordinary Floral and the colors looked great. Brian Minson and his team covered the wedding photographically. Sara Hartzler Casciani performed her lovely harp prior to the wedding ceremony and added a touch of elegance to the affair.

Following the ceremony, guests proceeded to the Canopy Patio for the cocktail hour while Jamie and Brad took formal wedding portraits. The golf course sparkled in the afternoon sun, which made a perfect setting for their wedding photos.  Dinner was served at 7:00pm starting with our signature Poco Premier Salad followed by their plated dinner entree Chicken Diablo: Chicken Breast Stuffed with Boursin Cheese, Baby Spinach and Sundried Tomatoes served with Red Pepper Cream Sauce.

One of the highlights of the dinner was the elegant wedding cake created by Donna Joy, Sedona Sweet Arts. The traditional wedding cake was adorned with hand made sugar flowers and everyone loved the cake. The top tier was saved by Jamie and Brad and will be enjoyed in their home as they celebrate their marriage.
