Leticia and Robert’s intimate ceremony stunned with classic white elements coupled with the natural beauty of the red rocks of Sedona, Arizona.
“My family lives 15 minutes from Sedona so I already knew about it,” the bride shared. “When I found out we had to cancel our big wedding due to Robert’s report date being changed, I wanted to at least have beautiful pictures. I figured Sedona would be the perfect place!”
The bride, a stay at home wife, and the groom, an Army construction equipment repairer, met in 8th grade science class. “We’ve always been best friends and started dating our sophomore year of high school,” Leticia gushed. “He didn’t really ask me to marry him; we both just decided it was something we wanted to do while he was in basic training. After our wedding, he took me to Cheyanne Mountain in Colorado Springs and asked me to be his wife the right way!”
The bride’s dress featured a simple, elegant silhouette with floral lace applique. “I found my wedding dress just two weeks before the wedding and bought it the first day I went looking! It fit perfectly with the outside scenery.”
What’s your advice to other military brides?
We had a huge wedding planned, but his orders changed. My advice would be to be prepared because things can always change!
What are the benefits to having a small, intimate wedding?
Looking back on it, I am happy with our decision because it was just about us! We really enjoyed being surrounded by all our family and not having to worry about all the hectic mess of planning and the possibilities of things going wrong. It was a stress-free wedding and what bride wouldn’t want that!?
