Courtney & Sam – An Elopement in Sedona

Gay couple eloping with Sam Venezia in the desert in Sedona, Arizona USA

After three years together, Courtney and Sam knew that a private elopement in Sedona was the perfect next step.

Tell us about the proposal.

The proposal occurred like the viral TikTok, where each person goes into target-grabbing items like something of their favorite color, favorite snack, favorite drink, etc. Although while Courtney was shopping, Sam created a romantic scene with lights and music to ask the question when it came to the last topic of an item that the other would like!

Talk us through your wedding day.

We both wanted a more private setting and, oddly enough, agreed we wanted to elope. We are from Virginia, but we said I love you the first time while in Sedona. So, of course, we thought Sedona was the best place to do our elopement! We found a private Airbnb that was set in the mountains of Sedona. We wanted sunrise pictures, but little did we know it would be 40 degrees that day.

Our photography was excellent and so sweet! Yes, it was cold, but it made so many funny memories that day of us shaking and running back inside to get a couple of minutes of warmth. Once we got all our pictures, Courtney’s family drove to us, and we spent the day celebrating and hiking through the mountains. It was the perfect day for us.
