Alesha and Brian had a Forest Highlands wedding last September. They tied the knot on the 14th hole. It's really a beautiful spot to have a Flagstaff wedding. The day turned out clear and crisp despite rain the day before. Both Brian and Alesha get ready at the Meadow Clubhouse and eventually returned back to the clubhouse for their reception.
Shannon and Molly are theater people. They've spent a lot of time at Theatrikos in downtown Flasgtaff so it made sense to head there for their engagement session. We started outside to take advantage of the fall color before heading inside. To say this session was pretty darn fun is an understatement.
Ursula and Severo eloped in Sedona. But it wasn't your average Sedona elopement. It was a bit of a Viking elopement. For real. Sev's got some Viking blood. So instead of a suit and tie he went with a suit of armor. And a sword.
Megan and Mike got married at the Arboretum at Flagstaff, one of my favorite places to photograph a Flagstaff wedding celebration. The Arboretum is a special place tucked away down a bumpy dirt road. Even if you live in Flagstaff it's kind of a destination wedding. Megan and Mike are outdoorsy folks, so the Arb was a fantastic wedding venue choice. Their wedding celebration was perfectly them - simple and down to earth - surrounded by friends and family.
Danielle and Adam had an Arizona Snowbowl wedding high up on Mt. Humphreys. Danielle began the day getting ready with friends and family in downtown Flagstaff before heading up the mountain to put on her wedding dress in the locker rooms at Snowbowl. Adam and his groomsmen had time for a card game before suiting up and then sang a little harmony in the bathroom to loosen up. And then it was time to get married.
Olivia and Monti traveled all the way from Dubai for their destination wedding at L'Auberge de Sedona. It was an intimate, creek side affair with family and close friends. After getting ready in rooms at opposite sides of the resort, the two chose to see each other for the first time when Olivia walked down the aisle. It was so beautiful.
Flagstaff is a great place to get married! Here is a list of some of my favorite venues. From historic, maybe even haunted, downtown hotels to mountain top lodges, upscale event centers to outdoor arboretums, there is a wedding ceremony and reception location for just about any style of celebration.
Planning a wedding day that is stress free and a magical, super rad, once in a lifetime celebration is totally possible. Seriously!
