Today’s real wedding feature is courtesy of the amazing husband and wife team behind Sedona Bride. I’m consistently blown away by the talent of Andrew and Katrina, so obviously I jumped at the chance to showcase their beauitful work on Once Wed. Andrew was kind enough to share a few details and images from Steve and Karen’s fabulous wedding…

Karen and Steve had a gorgeous wedding at a private property in Sedona,
Arizona. Karen wore the most amazing Christian Dior gown, highlighted
by a special pair of Rene Caovilla shoes for the ceremony, and a second
pair of Rene Caovilla’s to go with a new evening gown for dancing
during the reception.

The ceremony took place at the front gate of the courtyard and gardens
of the residence. The terrace just down the steps from the gate is
graced with an amazing fountain, which was decorated with the floral
and decor of Events by Showstoppers; an artistic arrangement of desert
succulents, cactus skeletons, and vibrant orchids. Rose petals were
scattered like a blanket over the water in the fountain.

We loved how instead of being walked down an aisle Karen walked to the guests and was met half way by Steve. Very romantic.


More incredible images from the reception coming up next…
