Leslie & Ben
May 28, 2011 at Tlaquepaque
Ben Studebaker proposed to Leslie Cole in their new living room on the day they moved in together; the couple wanted their Sedona wedding to be just as intimate. A friend of Leslie’s officiated at a private outdoor ceremony for the couple’s immediate family before they joined 55 guests for a purple-splashed cocktail reception in Sedona’s Tlaquepaque. The bride and groom, parents to two pooches, served signature drinks named after their dogs and emblazoned their photos on decorative wine bottles; guests also sipped on Pound Hound red wine, which benefits pup-friendly causes. The mood stayed light with tunes from a DJ and guitarist, and props like photo frames and mustaches for silly snapshots.
