Flagstaff Best Wedding Venues

Flagstaff Wedding Photographers

Flagstaff is nestled at 7,000 ft high in the largest ponderosa pine tree forest in the country. Many couples get married here every year but there are really only a few top wedding venues in this town. You could do the classic hippie Flagstaff thing by getting married in the middle of the forest but it’s not as easy as one would think. Thankfully, there are six great venues here in Flagstaff that provide mountain views, forest access, and beautiful buildings to host a wedding. 

1.The Sycamore Venue Flagstaff 

I love love love this new venue in town!! It’s bright, white wood, and has mountain views! That is a first for Flagstaff. It’s a big white barn that has so many options for your wedding day. Inside ceremony options but I am drawn most to the outside location with a few of the peaks for ceremony. Located on the East side of Flagstaff about 20 mins from downtown it’s not a far drive to get this amazing venue.


2.The Arboretum at Flagstaff 

The Arboretum at Flagstaff is a lovelyyyy beautiful option for a wedding. It has lush green grass, flowers and plants everywhere, and pine trees scattered for the classic mountains look. The ceremony option has an amazing view of the mountain with large vast landscape behind it. For reception there is only the option for a tent or just out under the trees. But I promise it’s so good!!!


3.Forest Highlands

For more of the classy look, Forest Highlands, has the option for a few different locations to have weddings on their site. Depending on what time of year there are options to have your wedding on the course with a view of the peaks or inside if it’s too cold! The clubhouses are designed really well with a bright clean look that can host many many guests!


4.Aldea Weddings

This is also a new venue in Flagstaff! Just 15 minutes from downtown, Aldea Weddings offer the lodge pine trees forest look that is hard to come by. With a big deck for reception outside you are in the pine trees all day! Their modern look inside offers getting ready rooms and good entrance options for your guests. Excited about this new venue!


5.The Gardens at Viola’s

If you want flowers galore look no further than Viola’s Flower Garden in Flagstaff!! With indoor and outdoor options, this venue can offer a variety for your wedding day. You don’t even need that much decor when the venue already looks THIS good with an abundance of flowers.


6.The Nordic Village

This venue is truly in the woods! Located about 30-40 minutes from downtown Flagstaff, Nordic Village is ALL about the forest. The ceremony location is in the woods, the tent is in the woods, everything is in the woods!! With beautiful aspen trees close to you get a variety look with white tree trunks and pine trees. You really feel like you are in the woods at this venue!


No matter what venue you go for here, you will love the options Flagstaff has to offer for wedding days. Reach out if you have any questions! [email protected]

Taylor + Bart // Cleveland, OH

Summer Midwest Whimsical Wedding Day

On a hot Ohio afternoon, Bart + Taylor wed in a beautiful church near the lake. When they met in college, they couldn’t stop spending time with each other. It was pretty instant and they built a strong connection and friendship that will last for a lifetime. Together they are a solid, genuine, fun couple that you want to be around all the time. They are good people and I’m so grateful for these humans who hire me to document their story.

Bart grew up in Minster, Ohio where he played football and swam in Lake Erie. Taylor grew up 2 hours south west in a small town called Findlay. It was in Findlay where I met Taylor in middle school through friends! This was one of the most fun weddings for me to document because of this sweet love between friends. With having over 250+ guests, it was a hoot of a wedding!! So much laughter and love.

With her Kate Spade stylish shoes and lace dress, Taylor was an elegant bride to say the least. No one could tell we all were sweating buckets, thank god for AC in July!! Family is a really big deal to the couple, so they incorporated lots of family throughout the ceremony and reception from her little nephew walking down the aisle to the mothers lighting unity candles. Their day was full and happy.

The night ended with a huge reception at Landerhaven! With beautiful decorations and REALLY good food! The dance party was just getting started at 11pm, so just imagine how long they danced?!
