Rachel and Hayden’s wedding was at the gorgeous L’Auberge de Sedona. I had been hoping to film at this incredible venue and was excited the opportunity came so soon. Their ceremony was at the SpiritSong Terrace and the views are stunning. A cocktail hour along Oak Creek and a reception at the Artists Cottage followed. L’Auberge has a sophisticated and elegant, yet cozy atmosphere, and you just don’t want to ever leave. Rachel and Hayden’s wedding was intimate and it was obvious how much their friends and family loved and supported them. One of my favorite moments was watching the moms of the bride and groom hug immediately after the ceremony. They just seemed ecstatic. Later I filmed them saying “best day ever” over and over. I also loved filming the entire party dancing the Hora around the room and later blessing challah (see if you can spy the banana, a family inside joke/tradition). When I left this wedding, my spirits were soaring. I could easily feel the love and joy surrounding this couple, and it was a privilege to be there.
