In an era where nothing seems certain and change has become the norm, Rachel and James chose to begin their married life together in a destination that has stood the test of time. After spending a lot of time discussing the best way to plan a wedding during a global pandemic, the couple selected Bell Rock in Sedona, Arizona as the perfect backdrop for their wedding ceremony. Anchored in the heart of the desert and reflecting the beauty that surrounds it, this location signified the start of a long and happy life together.
