The natural splendor of Sedona’s statuesque peaks rose up to frame Matt and Allan’s black-tie wedding day. As the grooms donned matching robes to take morning-of pictures in their hotel room, guests readied themselves in tuxedos and gowns to celebrate in the alfresco space. Sleek, black tuxedos, Tom Ford accessories and ornate black-rose cufflinks produced stunningly coordinated wedding looks for both gentlemen. Family and friends hopped off the official wedding transport, a quaint trolley, and grabbed a drink at the outdoor bar on the ceremony lawn before finding their seats. White chairs faced the ceremony arch draped with lush greenery and backed by a layered Arizona mountain. Crisp white blooms lining the aisles stood out brightly against the verdure. The grooms proceeded down the aisle hand-in-hand and looked on as their nearest and dearest spoke before they said their vows. Guests then retreated to the cocktail hour space featuring mod black-and-white lounge furniture with contemporary lines—a designer’s dream. They sipped from Champagne flutes and nibbled on passed appetizers while the grooms took advantage of the desert’s particularly stunning brand of golden hour. Dinner was served on the patio; tables showcased elegant black linens and bouquets of white and deep-red blossoms flanked by greenery and ample candlelight. A fun configuration of beverages acted as the escort card display—each glass featured a name and table number on a tag hanging off the lip. The newlyweds and their guests boogied the night away in the interior dance space, Allan and Matt basking in each moment of revelry as a just-married couple.
