Brandon and Mazeratie’s elopement at Merry Go Round Rock in Sedona was the most epic and intentional day. But before sharing about their Arizona elopement day, here’s their proposal story:
“I’d already made plans to be in Maui with friends for a week in October thanks to a friend’s parent’s timeshare points. Brandon made plans to meet me midway thru the week. He’d booked a room at Andaz, which was across the island from where I was staying so I had to take a 45- min Lyft ride to get there. The morning I was due to leave to meet him at the hotel, he called and told me his flight was delayed so he’d be arriving later than expected but that the hotel knew I was coming and he’d already booked a cabana at the pool for my wait.
At that point, I didn’t suspect a thing. Once I got to the hotel I remember thinking everyone was being exceptionally nice but I chalked it up to fancy hotel service. Turns out, Brandon had told pretty much the entire front desk that he was planning to propose so everyone was in on it but me!
Brandon arrived late afternoon and we spent a few hours by the pool, snacking and talking. He never once let on that anything was happening. Right before sunset, we went up to our room. When I walked in and saw the rose petals & champagne I actually got mad, thinking they were there because the hotel had incorrectly assumed we were already married. When I turned back to say something he started proposing – and the rest is history!”
Brandon and Mazeratie then later planned their wedding day, with a vision of it being intimate and adventurous. They started their wedding morning by slowly getting ready at their suite at the Lauberge Resort and Spa in Sedona. After they shared a sweet first look together down by Oak Creek and some mountainside exploring, we hopped in an open-air jeep to drive up to Merry Go Round Rock for their ceremony. The bumpy ride up to the top of the mountain was the perfect adventure before they stood on a cliffside and said their vows. The sunset showed off that night, giving them the most picturesque views before sharing a private dinner back at their resort. It was a day of celebration and love, without a doubt.
