One of our favorite images from Shelbi and Justin’s recent Sedona wedding. They really couldn’t be a sweeter couple! We’re really looking forward to sharing their wedding day story in a few weeks!
In the meantime a little background about the day and location for those of you working on planning a Sedona wedding. Shelbi and Justin’s wedding day was a perfectly sunny with the highs in the 80’s … it can still be a little toasty in September so we were all very glad for the warm but lower Arizona temperatures.
The Cottage Side Lawn at L’Auberge provided the perfect amount of shade for their family portraits and bridal party pictures… we were shooting several hours before sunset so the shade was very welcome and made for some beautiful backlit photos. For those that aren’t familiar with Arizona, it’s surprising to know how green and lush Arizona can be. When people think of Arizona they usually think of the beautiful Saguaro and desert that is the backdrop of much of Arizona. Oak Creek runs through the heart of Sedona and the trees grow big and beautiful and border the creek through Sedona. The towering white Sycamore trees, buzz of the summer cicadas and rumble of the creek made such a soothing scene for us while we were at L’Auberge. It’s no wonder L’Auberge is such a popular location for weddings in Sedona.
L’Auberge is also the perfect honeymoon suite choice for couples getting married anywhere in Sedona … It’s not uncommon for us to take prep pictures at L’Auberge and then go offsite for a wedding on the red rocks and then back to L’Auberge for an intimate dinner. For couples having their wedding at Sedona Golf Resort, Rancho Los Lagos etc. where there are no room accommodations having a room at L’Auberge is a rewarding post wedding treat. The outdoor showers and the wood burning fireplaces in the rooms paired with a massage at their spa makes for a perfect post wedding day full of relaxation. The Sunday brunch is also amazing and definitely worth staying longer in Sedona for if you can!
If you are looking for a gorgeous place to have your Sedona wedding photography L’Auberge is a great idea! It’s an ideal location for larger Sedona weddings but for those of you planning an intimate wedding they are also a perfect spot for small intimate weddings and elopements.
