Sedona Wedding at Tlaquepaque

…we found this on studio member Sedona Bride’s blog. All the vendors participating in this wedding are studio members as well.  Read what Sedona Bride writes below.  Enjoy!


It’s actually really rare that we are able to photograph the wedding of a sedona local.  Shannon and Michael are an amazing couple. her family owns Hoel’s Indian Shop in gorgeous Oak Creek Canyon, and are the sweetest parents you’ll meet.  We really enjoyed all the details Shannon planned… and even though it rained for a lot of the day, it cleared up in time for their beautiful personal ceremony.  We are so happy for you guys!  Thanks for treating us like family!

Gorgeous floral by Events by Show Stoppers… we loved the bright and vibrant colors which completely matched Shannon’s personality… Shannon also bought each bridesmaid a personalized gift, a flask with a graphic which fit each friend’s personality. we thought that was such a sweet touch.

Shannon and Michael created their own invitations on a special hand-made printing machine and Michael bought each of his groomsmen cufflinks made from old typewriter keys. we LOVE that!

The beautiful bride!!  Her preparation was in a room at our absolute favorite El Portal… the governor’s suite there is the prefect preparation room because the room is large and has great window light…

Shannon had all her bridesmaids wear different colored shoes and the groomsmen wear different colored pocket squares for their suits.

Shannon and Michael commissioned us for a “day after” session the following day so they could get to their guests quickly, and also so they could take advantage of better light earlier in the day.  We still captured a few lovely night shots before heading to the reception … check back in for some gorgeous images from their day after session! It’s at one of our favorite places to shoot up in Oak Creek Canyon…

Shannon has the best maid of honor anyone could ask for … she actually flew in the lead singer, Joe Hedges, of July for Kings, their favorite band, as a surprise to play their first dance song and a short set of other songs … it was the ultimate best maid of honor gift we’ve seen… 🙂  Everyone had a fabulous time in the Tlaquepaque Balloom, La Sala de los Milagros.
