Anita and Armand’s Chapel of the Holy Cross Sedona chapel wedding was truly magical. In the 15 years we’ve been shooting weddings in Sedona it’s the first Chapel of the Holy Cross wedding we’ve photographed.
The chapel is one of Sedona’s most visited attractions, and is situated at the foot of a span of red rocks called Mystic Hills. The chapel is famous not only for its architectural marvel, having been designed by a student of Frank Lloyd Wright, but also because of the incredible setting surrounding it. We had the pleasure of photographing Anita and Armand’s wedding at the chapel, and it is one of only a handful of weddings that have been shot there in the last 30 years!
Anita and Armand are hilarious and have a joy for life that is contagious! The moment you get around them you are immersed in conversation, laughs, and genuine fun. Armand is a comedian, and must have had a prior life on the Vaudeville circuit. His arsenal of funny faces and gestures kept us in constant laughter.
Anita had her hair and makeup prep at a beautiful Cottage at L’Auberge de Sedona and was joined by her best friends ans well as Sedona makeup and hair artist Carrie Kacen. Armand later met up with her for their first meeting and bridal party portraits on Oak Creek. We were lucky to be able to take some really beautiful pictures at Serenity Point which is a beautiful mix of red rocks and the green trees that surround Oak Creek.
From there we departed to meet up with their family and guests for their Chapel of the Holy Cross wedding. Right after the ceremony, everyone met up at Agave of Sedona for dinner and dancing. They had their family and friends right there with them to celebrate this occasion.
We could not be happier for you, Anita and Armand! Thank you for having us there and for treating us just like family!
