Amanda + Dillon

A Cathedral Rock Elopement in Sedona

Cathedral Rock was the breathtaking backdrop for Amanda + Dillon’s elopement in Sedona, Arizona!  Sedona’s natural sandstone skyline is quite possibly one of the most iconic places in the world! The beautiful red rocks towering above us stood like castle guards and it felt like we had the world to ourselves that day. 

When we first met Amanda & Dillon, they told us how perfectly everything was coming together for their day! The dress, the rings, the custom hat Amanda bought Dillon, and to top it all off, they chose the same wedding date as their SEVEN year anniversary!!! AAWW!! 

Amanda & Dillon both have a certain charm to them that you just don’t find many places anymore and it felt like we had known them for years! Coming from Texas, they both bring strong midwestern values and a genuine personality wherever they go! An elopement with only their closest friends is just their style, it was so fitting for them!

Not only were their wardrobe choices stunning but Amanda’s friend surprised her with one of the most incredible bouquets we have ever seen by Sedona Mountain High Flowers! Seriously…get a look at these florals! Dillon tried telling us the unique flowers were half animal, half plant… and no joke, we actually looked a little closer! The petals have a texture like actual feathers! Those gorgeous bulbs are white mink Protea’s, aren’t they so fun?!

They said their vows and exchanged rings as tears rolled down their cheeks. There was a beautiful silence during their prayer. It was so surreal being on top of that mountain as two people pledged their lives to each other, we could feel how strong their love was… it was such a beautiful ceremony!

Amanda + Dillon,

From the first phone call we knew this was a great match! There is no doubt that your day was picture perfect and we are so honored to have had the chance to stand alongside you! You two really are best friends, madly in love, and the world is just waiting for you to hike whatever comes your way! Remember, you can hike in Van’s, or you can hike in heels… just as long as you make the hike a memorable one! 😉We love you both, congratulations!!

 

xoxo,

Stephen + Melissa

    Thank you for the beautiful pictures of my daughters wedding. Unfortunately due to work schedule and late notice my wife and I were not able to attend. I remember when Amanda brought Dillon home to “meet the parents”. I had my doubts about this boy, as all fathers know, nobody is good enough for their daughter. After several Christmas’ & Thanksgivings (he wouldn’t go away) I seen that their relationship was more than a high school crush. They both have matured into an awesome young man & women. I foresee great accomplishments in their future. Thanks again for the beautiful pictures.
