Skipping a huge wedding and planning something intimate? Many couples choose Sedona to plan their elopement or small wedding. You can hike to great locations when you have a small guest count! An Enchantment Resort wedding elopement is a perfect solution for anyone wanting to plan a simple yet stunning small wedding in Sedona. Larissa and Scott planned a Sedona elopement with just their kids and close family. They wanted views that were elevated so suggested a trail off of Enchantment Resort. It’s a bit of a walk but so worth it for these unique red rock views.
They had a beautiful overcast day that provided some soft light and those red rocks did not disappoint. The accommodations at Enchantment Resort are amazing and they have world class spa there called Mii amo. It was named the #1 Destination Spa in the U.S. in Travel + Leisure 2018 World’s Best Awards so you know it’s pretty spectacular. They also have some of the best dining in Arizona with the most amazing views. Larissa and Scott had an intimate dinner at Tii Gavo.
As far as resorts locations go for having an intimate Sedona wedding an Enchantment Resort wedding elopement is one of out top picks for tying the knot in Sedona.
Just look at these sweet deer and the the desert flowers … there are many deer at Enchantment Resort … they seem to not be very afraid of people. This elopement took place in May so there were still some beautiful spring flowers blooming. The desert is gorgeous in the spring!
The hike up to this ceremony location is about 15-20 minutes give or take a few minutes… only the end of the trail is a little steep … the rest of the trail is pretty flat and manageable. It’s perfect for an elopement or very small wedding with a guest count under 10.
This is the spire you see from most of Enchantment Resort … the ceremony is in the saddle of some red rock formations.

We love love love capturing moments during weddings. Just because you plan an elopement doesn’t mean it’s not as meaningful. The groom’s daughter grabbed her husband’s tie to catch some tears! It was super sweet.
Another thing we love about elopements and small intimate weddings is that you are surrounded by people who you really really really love … not just people you know. Their long time friends are in the background sharing some emotion during the ring exchange.
Pronounced husband and wife!!! Just married!!!
The group photo! They were pretty darn excited! How adorable are they!
Before we headed back down the trail we took advantage of these amazing views … that’s Chimney Rock and Cathedral Rock way back there.
To camera left is Enchantment Resort down in the canyon … I framed the image so that just the red rocks were visible.
