Michelle & Tyler exchanged their wedding vows in style at L’Auberge de Sedona Resort & Spa. The weather is finally starting to cool down here in the Phoenix Valley, so it’s safe to say their Sedona affair was met with the perfect atmosphere. There was a cool crispness to the air, and everyone was so excited to have traveled to Red Rock country to witness the Bride and Groom’s nuptials!
After Michelle and Tyler met in nursing school at Grand Canyon University, fate would have that these two would fall in love. When it came time to propose, Tyler’s effort was thoughtful and sweet… “About a month prior Tyler had saved my favorite flower from a bouquet he had bought me. He pressed and dried the flower without me knowing and placed it in a beautiful frame. When he gave me the frame he told me to open up the back and it said “Will you marry me?” He got on one knee and gave me the most perfect engagement ring!”
Walking into their wedding day, we could immediately feel the anticipation for the day’s events. The Bride finishing up her hair and makeup while the Groom straightened up his suit… we captured the special details of their wedding day before heading into the First Look. Tyler’s reaction to seeing Michelle for the first time was so sweet!!
After the first look, we photographed the Bridal Party before heading off site for some red rock photos with the Bride and Groom. I loved that Michelle wanted to sneak away for a few sweeping red rock views to really capture the essence of a wedding day in Sedona. Heading back to L’Auberge, Michelle and Tyler’s guests were seated under the shade of a beautiful, large tree awaiting the Bride to walk down the aisle. The Bride & Groom exchanged their vows while a river swept along nearby in what made for a beautiful wedding ceremony. After the two exchanged their kiss, we headed down to the river for some Husband and Wife portraits in celebration! Guests were treated to dinner under the stars and twinkling lights, and a night of joyful dancing to follow.
Michelle & Tyler: Congratulations you guys!!! We are so glad to have been a part of your wedding day. It became clear to us throughout your day that you are each such kind souls- and we are so thankful we got to be a part of something so special. So THANK YOU for inviting us along, and we are wishing you both many years of happiness!!
