These two Pennsylvania residents eloped across the country, amongst red mountains, blush tulle, and bubbly champagne at Cathedral Rock Trail in Sedona, AZ.
Are they crazy? Maybe. Was their wedding magical? Absolutely.
Cathedral Rock is only reachable via a hike. A challenging hike. A “scramble up on your hands and knees to make it to the top” kind of hike. But for those daring enough, the view is worth it. Cathedral Rock is also one of the most popular hikes in Sedona, especially for sunset elopements. Although you won’t be alone during your hike, it’s popular for good reason- it’s one of the most stunning vistas to tie the knot at!
Christy and Michael knew this is where they wanted their wedding. As a photographer herself, this bride wanted the most stunning photos of her special day. So, after hiking in perfect makeup and hair, Christy ditched her hiking boots for her heels at the top of the hike, donned her blush ball gown wedding dress, and had a wedding day to remember!
After all, you can’t get this view anywhere but Sedona, Arizona!

No wedding would be complete without Oso the dog! As Karen’s sidekick, he loves hiking along for any wedding she officiates. This lovable pup found a special place in Christy and Michael’s hearts – they recently lost their own dog, and loved that Oso was there to share in their special day!
The perfect November day turned into a crisp evening, as the bride and groom cut their cake topped with a Lego cake topper and toasted with champagne, the sun setting behind them while they celebrated their union!
