Trudy & Sam’s Intimate Briar Patch Wedding Photos on Oak Creek and Tlaquepaque in Sedona, AZ
From the time Trudy and Sam first contacted us, we knew their wedding was going to be a great day. Then, we did their amazing engagement session, and it quickly became one of our favorites. By the time their wedding came, we knew it was going to be one of our all-time favorites. And it was. Trudy and Sam’s intimate Briar Patch Inn wedding and their family-style dinner in the romantic courtyard at Tlaquepaque were like something out of a dream. If we were to describe our perfect wedding day, I’m pretty sure it would look something like this.
Trudy and Sam live in Houston, TX, so this was a destination wedding for them. When they first started dating, they took a little vacation to Sedona and stayed at Briar Patch Inn. They spent time relaxing at this beautiful getaway right on Oak Creek. They found a hammock on the grounds, and spent many hours just talking and falling in love in that hammock. Trudy & Sam even carved their initials in a tree down by the creek: TS. Awhile later, they returned, and this time, in that same hammock, Sam asked Trudy to be his wife.
Trudy and Sam’s dream day was one spent in the very place that held such significance in their relationship, with 20 of their closest friends and family by their sides. She chose sweet floral bridesmaid dresses, and the men wore navy suits with coordinating floral ties. Probably the best part of the day, though, was the people surrounding them. Their friends and family were so generous, kind, and fun and truly loved Trudy and Sam with their whole hearts. The welcomed us in like part of the family and we were so grateful to be a part of it.
All of Trudy and Sam’s guests stayed in cabins at The Briar Patch Inn, and spent the morning of the wedding getting ready, eating together, and just enjoying one another. Their heartfelt ceremony was on a small green lawn under towering trees. Then we spent some time taking photos down by the creek, and in the red rock mountains. Their reception was in the romantic, Tuscan-inspired courtyard of Tlaquepaque Village, and it was just perfect. They had one long table, and the entire group enjoyed an amazing dinner, laughing together under cafe lights.
We hope you enjoy Trudy & Sam’s Briar Patch Inn wedding photos as much as we do. It was a delight to capture their day, and we can’t wait to watch their marriage grow!
