Tracey and Chris were to be married at the EnchantmentResort in Sedona on May 27th, 2011, so when she came shopping at Strut, we knew we needed to find a dress fit for such a stunning locale. It was to be a small wedding, with about 35 guests in attendance. And, in a slight twist on tradition, Tracey and Chris chose to have the cocktail hour BEFORE the ceremony.
We'll walk you through their special day in this series of awesome photos fromPuruhito Photography.
The super awesome Wade Lee traveled to Sedona to do hair and makeup for Tracey. Here he works his magic in the bathroom of her suite:
Next is a close up of Tracey's wedding dress. She wore an aline gown made of organdy, a lightweight, flowy yet elegant fabric. Tracey added the flutter sleeves to the beaded straps.
Here Wade helps lace up Tracey's corset back. Wade saved the day: as Tracey tells the story, her friend designated to lace her gown was running late and Wade declared he had "seen it done a number of times", so he stepped in to assist.
Tracey brought to her bridal appointment a couple of special guests, two stuffed animals that were special to her and Chris. Fittingly, they carried in the rings during the ceremony while riding a remote controlled car.
Of course we love the detail shots, too, so here's a great close up of Tracey's wedding bouquet (note the added sparkles!):
Finally, we had to show you Tracey and Chris's guest book: their wedding guests painted their well wishes on a canvas for the newlyweds to hang in their house. What a great reminder of a wonderful day!
