Married September 25, 2016
If you have ever been to Sedona, then you know it's a beautiful place no matter what time of year it is. This wedding in particular took place this past September at Garland's Oak Creek Lodge. I had never been before and had only seen the venue in pictures. Though the pictures are stunning... it's even better in person. Between the mountain backdrop, apple orchards, lush forests, quaint cabins and the sound of the creek's water trickling in the background... uh yeah, you could say that we were super into it. Definitely made it hard for us to leave the next day!
Since the environment was perfect in itself, Nazlee and Jake wanted simple decor for their ceremony and reception. There was already so much amazing-ness happening all around, so we completely understood what they were looking for. We had a custom built chuppah made for the couple (thanks Nicolas!) that we decorated with jewel tone florals and olive branches to match Nazlee's bouquet. The tables were set up with simple bud vases and petite centerpieces. The colors stood out amongst all of the greenery, and it created for an overall youthful and whimsical design... an enchanting forest party!
