We are truly mesmerized by this intimate Sedona wedding for Gene and Holly shot by Jane in the Woods. The couple originally met while they worked at ASU during a department softball game. Immediately, the two hit it off and became inseparable. They dated for four and a half years before Gene decided to pop the question in such a romantic way. Gene and Holly had run a marathon the previous year, and were only able to finish together after they shared a special moment. During the race, they began to go up a steep hill. In order to support each other, they held hands – and continued doing so until they crossed the finish line! Fast forward to a year: Gene told Holly that they were going out on a dinner date. Before dinner, he decided to make a small detour to that exact steep hill where the race had been. Stopping the car on the hill, Gene proposed to Holly – and she said yes!
Many special details made a huge impact on the wedding day itself. Holly carried her great-grandmother’s handkerchief, which was a family tradition. Rather than having a ceremony sermon, their officiant read relationship advice as Gene and Holly are psychologists. They even cited the sources in their program! The couple opted to have a very intimate wedding with only 18 guests. With the smaller party, the couple got to treasure more personal moments. At the reception, every guest got to give a toast or share a story with the couple. Treasures of the desert inspired the decor, with succulents and geodes placed throughout the wedding. At the end of the night, guests went home with locally-made craft beer, coffee and candies. Gene and Holly rocked their beautiful, intimate Sedona wedding in style and took away memories to cherish for all of time.
