Amara Resort and Spa Wedding: Ashley and Daniel met in college while living in Colorado. From the first moment she saw him, she knew Daniel was who she would marry. While Daniel never thought he would get married, Ashley was going to be the one that completely changed his mind.
Through the seven years of dating each other, their love withstood long distance and big moves to a different state.
When they moved to Arizona together, they visited Sedona, Arizona and it was a memorable and special trip for them, leading them to choose it for their elopement location where they wanted epic backdrops for their wedding day celebration.
The morning of their elopement, Ashley and Daniel met us before the sun came up and the stars were still twinkling in the sky. We started our ascent up one of the red rocks for a cliffside view overlooking all of Sedona.
We got to the top just as all of the colors started to pop during the morning blue hour. The stunning greens started to show up more, the red rock with its purple tones from the dewy blue sky.
We gave them some space to share this intimate moment together without any distractions. Daniel lost his bet that he wouldn’t shed any tears during their wedding day.
One of my favorite parts from their day was after their vows when Ashley looked at us laughing and smiling saying that she felt like she was just looking into his soul.
We love elopements for the sheer fact that couples get to share this super special moment together, free of stress or expectation, and be moved in such a beautiful place together.
They set up their reception space in Amara together. It was a super special moment for them to be able to create this romantic space they would later join their family for dinner after the ceremony.
They decorated with candles, flowers, and photos from their last seven years together. It was the perfect space for them, that they got to do together before not seeing each other until the first look.
We ended the evening with a beautiful sunset taking portraits with views of Courthouse Butte and Cathedral rock before heading back to Amara to rejoin the family.
