Welcome Marriage Equality to Sedona Sky Ranch Lodge

Wedding pics 5 3 2015 143It is no secret that Sedona Sky Ranch Lodge is one of the most beautiful places on earth to hold your marriage ceremony. It is certainly the most beautiful wedding venue in all of Arizona.

Cindy Delost and Wanda Haza helped us reach a new milestone when they gave us the honor or hosting their wedding on May 3rd. Our first same sex wedding went off without a hitch. Two of the happiest brides we have ever seen and a ceremony that brought almost everyone to tears, including Sky Ranch Lodge management who were thrilled to witness such a beautiful and meaningful ceremony. We were able to give them the magical and spiritual wedding they wanted at what they told us was the only place they wanted to have it. Love is indeed love and it was a privilege to witness this couple take their vows and become part of Sky Ranch Lodge wedding history and add to our story as they started their own. The weather could not have been more beautiful and the setting could not have been more perfect.

Wedding pics 5 3 2015 136Sedona Sky Ranch Lodge is committed to providing a warm, welcoming environment to all couples who wish to hold their wedding on our Lookout where the Red Rocks provide the backdrop of all backdrops for their special day. We work with couples to provide them the wedding they desire, whether short or long, traditional or eclectic. Our goal is to give couples a meaningful and memorable wedding that is reflective of their personal tastes and traditions.

We understand choosing a venue for your wedding is a personal and important decision and it is important to have a place that will work with couples to meet their hopes and expectations. At Sedona Sky Ranch Lodge we take the responsibility of hosting weddings very seriously. We seek to make the happy couple, their family, friends and guests comfortable and meet their every need. We go the extra mile to exceed expectations and make the big day as special and stress free as possible. We do the heavy lifting so couples can relax, enjoy their day and taking in all the love and beauty that surrounds them.

May 7 2015 luke spend night 005We are as happy for Cindy and Wanda as we are for all of the couples who choose the Sky Ranch Lodge to start their married life together. Now that Marriage Equality is the law of the land we hope other couples will find their way to us and give us the honor of being their wedding venue. There is something unexplainably wonderful about watching couples who have waited so long for that moment take their vows. That goes for all couples not just those who happen to be same sex.

There is no better or more beautiful place to cross the threshold into a new life together than Sky Ranch Lodge. Your wedding day is when your story begins and the pages are yours to fill. We are honored to be part of couples’ stories.

View-from-the-wedding-area-of-Sedona-Sky-Weddings-at-Sky-Ranch-Lodge-and-Mesa-Grill-on-Airport-Mesa-in-Sedona-ArizonaAre you looking for someplace really special to say your I Do’s? Perhaps someplace magical, mystical, healing and full of positive energy? Do you want somewhere different than the same old boring venues? Look no further for the perfect wedding venue awaits you at the Sky Ranch Lodge.

Sedona Sky Weddings offers a venue like no other in Arizona as the views are the best in the area and perhaps the entire state. Imagine saying your vows with panoramic views of Sedona’s healing Red Rocks in the background. Spectacular scenery that will not only frame your special day but will provide breathtaking photographs of your entire event that you will treasure for years to come. What a magnificent time and place for a wedding! What could be a more perfect way to start your new life together than surrounded by all of this natural beauty and energy?

Unique but inspiring. Elegant but casual. Sedona Sky Weddings can provide you with an incredible venue and recommended professional wedding service providers that will work to make your day everything you dream of and more. Whether you are looking for a casual theme or a formal ceremony with a sit down dinner, Sedona Sky Weddings can make it happen.

WJ-1030Consider the Lookout at Sky Ranch Lodge as a place to have a beautiful and meaningful ceremony. It is no surprise that this is one of Sedona’s favorite wedding venues. The Lookout is situated at Sedona’s highest point. From there you can see up to 70 miles away. Quite frankly, no other wedding site in Sedona has views that can remotely compare to what you will see here. Whether you are local or planning a destination wedding, you and your guests will be able to see stunning panoramic views of Sedona’s Red Rocks and more.

Quite often destination weddings lead to disappointment when guests are not impressed with the location or venue. But that will not happen with Sedona Sky Weddings. Guests will be awestruck at the beauty and they will soon find there is a good reason why each afternoon guests flock to The Lookout to watch the sunset in a bevy of pinks, oranges, and reds as they descend through the heavens. As darkness approaches the lights of Sedona take over and you can see them shimmering below. I would be willing to bet guests end up coming back to Sky Ranch Lodge on their own sometime so they can see more of what Sedona and the lodge has to offer.

The Lookout at Sky Ranch Lodge can accommodate up to 150 guests for weddings, receptions, and parties. You can have all your wedding weekend festivities in one place! They can help you with anything you need to rent and anything you need to cater! Imagine a welcome cocktail reception at Over the Bridge at the Lookout and then your ceremony and reception at The Lookout. Guests can stay right at the Sky Ranch Lodge which makes it easy on everyone, especially the happy couple! No need to carry all your wedding attire from one location to the next. You and your wedding party can get dressed right on site and if you forget the rings, don’t’ worry they are right upstairs in your room not miles away in another hotel.
