2016 Sedona Bridal Show and Boot Camp Best Yet!

WHAT AN INCREDIBLE TURN OUT!! The 2016 Sedona Bridal Show and Boot Camp is over and WHAT A SHOW!!!! Couples were already lined up at 10:00 and kept on coming all day. The Hilton was absolutely packed! The show’s vendors and venues were buzzing about how many, many more couples attended this year than ever before. Many vendors wrote up contracts right at the show!

The couples were buzzing about how they had never been to a bridal show quite like this and went on to say how gorgeously decorated, organized, warm and friendly it was. As they left, couples were commenting about about how much fun the show was and how much they had accomplished towards planning their weddings.

The producers of the 2016 Sedona Bridal Show and Boot Camp, Classic Phoenix and Events By Show Stoppers, want to give our sincerest ” thank you and congratulations ” to all the wonderful venues and vendors who participated. Additionally, we would like to acknowledge the inspiring team spirit, energy and camaraderie that permeated the event. The Sedona Bridal Show and Boot Camp has truly grown into an event our Sedona wedding industry can be proud of by having given everyone in our community an opportunity to participate up until all categories were filled and the show’s space was sold out.

From our humble beginnings in 2010, when we had just 20 brides in attendance ( to what was was then billed as an “open house” inside the renamed Sedona Wedding Services building on 89A. ) we have grown into the largest and most stylish bridal show in Northern Arizona!

It has been a challenge. In the beginning, the show was exclusively produced by, and for, SWS members. By opening the show to everyone in our community, the show exploded into what it has become today. This is entirely due to the remarkably talented vendors and beautiful venues who support the show. We applaud the success we have all brought about, together, for our community.

Plans are in the works to expand available space next year so even more in our wedding community can join in on the fun. Show dates will be posted on our website in the coming weeks. If you want to participate next year, we would urge you to let us know at your earliest convenience.

We hope you all book lots of weddings as a result of the 2016 Sedona Bridal Show and Boot Camp. Below is an impressive summary of this year’s ( 2016 ) attendance as compared to last year’s ( 2015 ) attendance.

Our best wishes for a successful wedding season! Deb Beggs / Classic Phoenix and Ken Heflin, Jim Bullock / Events By Show Stoppers

Sedona Wedding Photography at L’Auberge

Throwback Thursday brings us this fun family wedding from studio member Sedona Bride Photographers. Thanks for sharing, Katrina and Andrew ::

We were already booked on the wedding date Pam and Wade were looking at and they switched to a beautiful Thursday date in October to work with us, something we did not take lightly. Of course we felt so honored to be a part of such an amazing day in their lives!
They are a truly wonderful, heartfelt, and caring couple and adore each other. Pam has a career in design so all the paper goods were designed by her and the ideas that she came up with were beautiful.
Most importantly however were all the wonderful family and friends that were there… it was a very intimate wedding with just the closest of friends and family who were just as kind and loving as Pam and Wade. They are so blessed to have such wonderful people in their lives.
The wedding took place at L’Auberge de Sedona and was beautifully executed by Laura at Heart of Sedona Weddings. Laura is amazing to work with and always always has her clients best needs in mind. She works tirelessly to make sure that all the vendors come together as a team to make the day flow. We appreciate her so much for that and more.
And finally, Pam and Wade! You two are amazing and we are so blessed to have gotten to know you through this process. We can’t wait for you to make it back to Arizona and enjoy a meal at Elote together! Big big hugs to you both!!

L’Auberge de Sedona Wedding ~ Jennifer and Tim

We love this cute and intimate wedding from studio member Sedona Bride Photographer’s blog! Thank you for sharing it with us, Katrina and Andrew ::

We love shooting intimate weddings at L’Auberge de Sedona! No venue in Arizona can boast such a diverse offering of ceremony sites.
Jennifer and Tim traveled from San Diego to have their outdoor wedding in Sedona. You can tell from the pictures how beautiful and in love they are! Tim just adores Jennifer… Their first site meeting was one of the cutest I’ve seen. It threatened to rain, and just minutes before their ceremony began, the sky opened up and it poured ‘ happy rain,’ where it’s sunny and raining at the same time! Nobody, including Jennifer or Tim, let the rain dampen their spirits. It soon passed and Sedona wedding planner Margaret Van Damme made sure to keep everything on track and beautiful.

Thank you, Jennifer and Tim! It was such a pleasure working with you and we could not be happier for you both!
