We are loving this amazing Sedona wedding of Kelsey and Carter photographed by Lauren Ristow. Despite both of them having grown up in Flagstaff, the couple didn’t meet each other until they moved to Phoenix. They met through a mutual friend who introduced Carter to Kelsey, and the two hit it off immediately. They dated for a year when Carter decided that it was time. He had been talking about doing the helicopter ride at Lake Powell for a while, so it was no surprise to Kelsey when he had offered to take a helicopter ride while they were in Page. When they got there, they ‘found out’ that they could stop on Tower Butte to take pictures of the view. What Kelsey didn’t know is that Carter had already planned this with the airport staff to propose on Tower Butte. After an amazing experience aboard the helicopter, they stopped on Tower Butte and Kelsey walked to the edge. As she turned around to pose for the picture, she noticed Carter kneeling in front of her. She said yes, and they were congratulated by the airport staff when they returned.
For their Sedona wedding, the couple decided to go with a very bohemian feel. Marsala and tangerine blooms from Wildflower AZ created a moody tropical feel. Greenery and ivory accents helps to bring an upscale yet earthy feel to this beautiful affair. They had a sand ceremony but used glass instead of sand, which will be blown into a beautiful vase. Everyone enjoyed the evening and retreated to their rooms at the end of the night. The couple hosted a brunch the next morning and will be going on their honeymoon to Fiji next year.
