There are few things as intimate and romantic as eloping. Add Sedona’s Creekside Inn plus the most important people in your life and you get the lovely elopement of Kelly and Charles. Originally, they had wanted to elope to Italy just the two of them but once their kids caught wind of it there was no way to get married without them. So, they googled destination weddings and found the perfect setting… Creekside Inn at Sedona. They both live in California, love surprises, and spontaneity. True to form they decided not to let each other see the rings until the day of elopement.
As soon as we got to Creekside Inn I photographed the beautiful rings and other lovely details of the day. After some shots of all the guys looking dapper, it was off to see the girls helping Kelly with her dress, final touch ups, hugs, and kisses. Kelly was gorgeous! Her hair and make up was done by The Sedona Beauty Team.
Kelly's energy was high and she couldn’t stop smiling. Her smile said there was nothing in the world more important to her than marrying Charles. The man of her dreams. Before walking down the aisle of natural steps lined with stones and sprinkled with fall leaves, the ladies toasted to Kelly and Charles on their wedding day.
The Ceremony was super sweet with both Kelly’s and Charles’ kids by their sides along with a couple of close family members. Charles couldn't take his eyes off Kelly and his smile grew more confident, relaxed, and happy as the day progressed.
After signing the marriage license and taking family photos we went up Schnebly Hill Road to take a few pictures of the newlyweds in the stunning high desert landscapes of Sedona. Whether they were in front of the awesome Red Rocks or surrounded by desert cactus, yucca, or draped in the warm glow of the sunset, Kelly and Charles were so happy and in love they couldn't stop kissing, holding and
smiling at each other. They were in their own world and it was so touching to witness.
Kelly and Charles, thank you for your kindness and enthusiasm! It was so clear that you make each other extremely happy and are a fabulous match. I am really grateful I was the one to capture your day and your beautiful family.
