Reverend Andrew Murphy provided my husband and I a beautiful ceremony! He spoke well to our personalities and made it the perfect ceremony! Communication with Andrew was excellent,. We were able to email and call him with anything we wanted in our ceremony, and he even executed our rehearsal the day before making sure us and our bridal party knew what to do and where to walk/stand! So thank you Andrew for your exceptional service! More...

Laura made our wedding day absolutely perfect. We didn't have to worry or stress about a thing. She is extremely organized, prepared, and experienced. Without her I can't imagine the day would have turned out the way it did. I would recommend her to anyone looking for a planner in the Sedona area. She not only planned a perfect wedding, but she also became our friend :) More...

We worked with Laura who was just beyond words helpful, efficient, conscientious, professional and very knowledgeable with regard to what it takes to create the perfect wedding day. She also went beyond and above what would be expected of a wedding planner, both in her time commitment and in reading the wedding couple-anticipating their needs and keeping us all in line with what and when things needed to be done. She is truly lovely and we are grateful to have worked with her. Mother of the Groom More...

Our Sedona wedding was the most spectacular and heart-felt event of our lives. We are so grateful to Laura and her team at Heart of Sedona for bringing to life our vision and executing an event that our guests are still talking about.

Laura is the best in the wedding planning business. She is calm, creative, supportive and detail-oriented. Our wedding took place at Enchantment Resort in 3 different spots, including two outdoor areas. Laura and her team set up the venues beautifully and guided our guests seamlessly to each location. Even when the rain threatened to bring the whole event indoors, Laura kept me calm and positive.

During the planning process, I felt blessed to have a pro like Laura assisting me with vendor selection, contract review, and negotiating with vendors. I felt I had a strong partnership with her and access to the best vendors, services and decor. She was also always available and prompt to return my emails or phone calls. We had a destination wedding so this was key.

Thank you Heart of Sedona for putting your hearts into making our wedding a dream come true.

Reverend Murphy was so wonderful! His words during the ceremony were meaningful and thoughtful, and made our wedding even more special. I think we all got teary eyed during the ceremony. Also, he gave up part of his Thanksgiving day with his family to perform our ceremony - that was incredible of him to do that. More...

Reverend Murphy was fabulous. He created an extremely personal wedding ceremony for Ray and I. From our first contact with him until after the wedding, he displayed the utmost care and concern for us. Our wedding day at Tlaquepaque will remain a treasured day forever. Being from Pennsylvania, we managed every detail via the phone and Internet. Everything from the ceremony to the flowers, cake, and restaurant turned out perfect! More...

We love working with Laura at Heart of Sedona weddings! She keeps us completely up to date on any scheduling changes for our Sedona Beauty Team brides and I always know it's going to be a beautifully orchestrated and tasteful event. She is not afraid to be the Captain and helps her brides with the sometimes impossible task of herding the cats AKA bridesmaids and attendants! Not to mention, flawless attention to detail. More...

Reverend Andrew was PERFECT for our wedding. He sent us a questionnaire to fill out and tailored our ceremony to this. His opening words and sentiments were beautiful and sounded perfect in our wedding video. You can tell he has been doing this for a very long time. It was a little odd to be married by someone you don't really know but he makes it seem like you have known him forever. I am so glad he was a preferred vendor for Agave of Sedona and that he was a part of our amazing day! More...

As parents of the bride, one word that comes to mind, phenomenal!!! Laura was truly unbelievable. At every twist and turn she handled every detail in a timely manner. We named her "Our Fairy Godmother"! It was like she waved her magic wand and made things happen before we could blink. Laura's contacts with the various vendors made our job sooooo easy. Be it entertainment, flowers, invitations.....etc., she had the connection! We fell in love with this wonderful women who we now proudly call our friend ❤️ More...

Laura Marolakos is beyond the stars on each rating scale!

We had a quick engagement (6 months) and in that short time Laura became like family. Immediately, she got us going with the planning process and she walked us through every. single. step. Laura was able to break apart all the "to do's" of wedding planning into digestible bites. We never felt too overwhelmed or too stressed by the process. Her calm, professional demeanor made us feel confident from the moment we met all the way to the big day. Laura was thorough and meticulous in planning every detail. Her taste is exquisite. She connected with the heart of our wishes and just GOT US. She was amazing. We feel so lucky we got her as our planner. (Side note: as a professional, I feel like I learned a lot from her that I will apply in my job and future endeavors. Not sure if she knew what an impression she made on me. What an amazing role model and the world needs more women like Laura.)

Our wedding was a fairytale and I know it's because we had our own fairy godmother, Laura Marolakos making our reality feel like a dream.

We got very lucky by selecting Laura aka Heart of Sedona Weddings to plan our special day. We could not be any happier. Wedding planning can be overwhelming and stressful with all the pressure it can bring but having Laura as our planner made us feel at ease. From the very first interaction we had with Laura, she has been a consummate professional. Not only is she a good listener, she is also a really good advisor and simply gets things done. She understood our vision right away and made it a reality. She responded quickly to our inquiries and we felt that everything was under control the entire time. Reverend Andrew and Laura made us feel at ease throughout the whole process. We love how organized and detailed Laura was.

Heart of Sedona Weddings met and exceeded all our expectations and we are forever grateful...

We planned our boutique wedding in Sedona 8 months ahead. After talking to several area vendors, Heart of Sedona Weddings, seemed to best meet our needs. When talking to Reverend Andrew, he really listened to what kind of ceremony we wanted and offered us suggestions for different versions and locations. We were very happy with the beautiful setting to showcase Sedona and it was easy for our family to locate and walk to. Heart of Sedona weddings gave us references for restaurants, hotel, and florists that we were also very happy with. Andrew touched based with us leading up to our wedding and was able to capture who we are as a couple and what marriage means to us in the ceremony. We were very happy with the selection of photographers that he recommended and are excited to see the final photos! This was a very easy and relaxing process with attention to detail that met all of our needs. There was a possibility of rain and Andrew had a "rainy day" plan all ready for us in the event that happened. I would definitely recommend this company for your Sedona wedding package. More...

Reverend Andrew officiated our wedding at Agave of Sedona in October 2016. He was amazing and we were so pleased with the service. Before the service, he asked us to each respond to a few questions individually. He really spent the time to make the service personal and incorporated our responses into his readings. Everyone loved it! He was very professional to work with and incredibly friendly. We would highly recommend Reverend Andrew and are so grateful to have had him officiate our wedding. More...

Laura and Andrew were exactly what we needed for our Sedona wedding. Planning a wedding from New Jersey would not have been so easy without them. Laura was always in communication and knew exactly what had to be done and when. Laura knew of all the best vendors in the area and found people within our budget that were still great! The day of the wedding went so smoothly. I had absolutely nothing to worry about and was completely stress free. I knew I was in good hands. I couldn't have asked for a more perfect day. If I had to do it again,I wouldn't change a thing! More...

Laura and Andrew of Heart of Sedona Weddings were absolutely AMAZING and I could not be happier that I chose them to coordinate my wedding in Sedona, AZ.
Laura was always so responsive to my phone calls/emails whenever I had any questions/concerns, and I appreciated this so much!! On the weekend of the wedding, they both went out of their way to make sure that I got everything I wanted. Laura was able to arrange a rehearsal for us on a Saturday (we got married on a Sunday) at our venue when we originally thought the venue would not allow us to do so. She knew how important that was to us and I was so glad that she made it happen! Then, on the wedding day, I was so glad to have her there to keep my very large bridal party organized. She kept us on track and handled all the stressful things on the day of so that my parents and I could just relax!
As for Andrew, I can't say enough good things about him. He is such an incredible officiant and we were so lucky to have him for our special day. He is one of the nicest people we have ever met, and so understanding and intuitive! We met with him a few months before the wedding and he was more than happy to sit down and spend as much time with us as we needed. He even allowed us to customize our wedding ceremony in a format that we liked! During the ceremony, he said some really kind words about my husband and I, and he used these words to explain our relationship. It was so perfect!! And I absolutely loved all the prayers and readings that were included, it made the ceremony so beautiful.
I will never forget our gorgeous wedding, and I will also never forget that it was made possible by these two amazing people. I would HIGHLY recommend using Laura and Andrew to anyone that decides to get married in Sedona. They are kind, personable, and have a true passion for their work.

Rev. Andrew Murphy was a joy to work with!!! He created a custom and very intimate ceremony and plan, which was executed beautifully!!! I enjoyed our meetings with him and really felt that he connected with us and it showed through in the ceremony! He is bilingual, which was great because we had a mix of English and Spanish in our ceremony, which was a dream for us :) My guests even commented on how special and unique the ceremony was!!!

My husband and I chose Rev. Andrew Murphy to help us renew our wedding vows in beautiful Sedona, Arizona after reading his bio online. From the start, Rev. Andrew was very professional and always prompt in his correspondence. He helped us coordinate photography and flowers for the event and arranged the use of our preferred site with the forest service as well. He really made everything stress-free, which was a huge blessing! Although we had not met until the day before our event, my husband and I immediately felt comfortable with Rev. Andrew as he radiates peace and joy and acceptance.
On the day of the event, he created such a personally meaningful ceremony for us - completely tailored to our beliefs and values. He found beautiful ways to include our three-year-old son in the ceremony and was so gentle and patient with him. Although our knowing him was brief, Rev. Andrew made a big impact on us and I am so very grateful to have had such a wonderful man officiate our vow renewal.

Andrew was an exceptional officiant for our wedding! He was timely and organized with email contact before our big day, and asked us to describe our relationship in advance with thoughtful questions so he could design a custom ceremony that highlighted the values and timeline of our love story. Andrew involved our parents and family traditions, as well as beautiful words to describe how we feel about each other based on our own descriptions of our relationship. My husband's family speaks mainly Spanish, and my family only speaks English: Andrew was also able to interweave the two languages flawlessly so both families could equally enjoy and participate in our wedding ceremony. He was calm, thoughtful, and well-spoken, and made us feel very relaxed throughout the whole planning process. I would highly recommend him to anyone seeking a beautiful, personalized wedding ceremony, especially if you have the need for a bilingual service! We are so lucky to have found him. :) More...

Andrew Murphy is a class act and we now consider him a friend. I became engaged December 31, 2015 and married at Tlaquepaque Chapel on July 16, 2015. I live in Pittsburgh, PA and planned the entire wedding via email and phone with Andrew. He made the process enjoyable and easy. From the first contact, he was caring and understanding. I explained what we wanted and our budget. Andrew made recommendations for the venue, flowers, photographer, cake, accommodations, and the dinner. There was never any pressure and if I had a question, he responded quickly with advice. When I had difficulty contacting a vendor, Andrew made the call. I never feared that the day wouldn't be perfect because of the time and care he took with us. We had phone sessions with both my fiancé and Andrew to work through the details. He took this time to know us as individuals. Andrew, went above and beyond expectation. I didn’t want to take my dress and my fiancé suit on the plan. Andrew said we could ship them to his house. We did. Not having the stress of carrying those items on a plane, was a relief. The day before the wedding, we met with Andrew at his home and walked through the ceremony. He gathered additional details and incorporated them into our ceremony. On the day of the wedding, he met my groom 45 minutes before the ceremony, greeted guests, delivered my bouquet to me, and ensured us that all was okay. The ceremony was exceptionally personal to us and beautiful. Our family and friends commented on how beautifully unique the ceremony was to us and how personable Andrew was. If you plan to marry in Sedona, call Andrew Murphy. He and his wife are amazing at what they do. Even my friends in PA were shocked at how easy it was to plan every detail of the wedding over the phone and via email. They found my process so easy, they have recommended to family that they do a destination wedding. With Andrew Murphy, you will love every moment of the wedding planning and the wedding day! More...

Rev Andrew Murphy was amazing he paid so much attention to every conversation we had with him and took bits and pieces and made it "US" on our wedding day. the ceremony was praised by all! There were some that were skeptical as some of our family members are not very religious and still said that it was the BEST ceremony they had ever heard! I enjoyed the touches of religion he placed in our ceremony to draw us closer as a couple it was PERFECT!

Thank you again Andrew!

My only regret is that I did not hire his wife as our wedding coordinator to relieve the stress of the day from me..... I would have gladly paid double the asking price in hindsight!

I was lucky to have Laura as our wedding planner for not only one wedding but 2! She is professional, highly organized, and truly cares about you, does everything within her power to make it the most beautiful event. Laura, can assist you with ideas and plans, the best part is...she will then make it happen! Laura is calming and reassuring though out the wedding planning process and is amazing the day of your wedding. I can't possibly say enough about Laura, I am grateful and I could not have done it without her! Also, if your lucky enough to have Reverend Andrew Murphy ( Lauras' husband) to officiate your ceremony....as he has for 2 of our children, you will be truly blessed. Your ceremony will be meaningful & beautifully done. I would highly recommend this dynamic duo.

After researching a bunch of different elopement packages around the United States, my husband and I stumbled upon Heart of Sedona Weddings and we knew that we found a winner after reading all of the glowing reviews. After contacting Andrew, and getting a very speedy response from him, we knew we were making the right choice to work with him and get married in Sedona. We had a very small ceremony, only 5 people in attendance, but Andrew worked with us the same way he would've worked with a couple with 200 people in attendance. Andrew took the time to get to know us; how we met, what our hobbies are and what values we hold strong in our relationship. Andrew took these answers (through questionnaires and phone conversations) and tailored the ceremony to us. We could not imagine a better way to celebrate our love.
We got married outside in Crescent Moon State Park with Cathedral Rock in the backdrop. It was absolutely beautiful and picturesque.
Andrew also was incredibly helpful in recommending a hotel for us and our guests, a photographer, restaurants, and giving us advice for things to do in the area. This was awesome since we were planning a wedding from over 2500 miles away and had never been to Sedona before- that may sound crazy, but it was the best decision we could've made:)
We have amazing memories of our beautiful wedding in Sedona and we have Andrew to thank for making it all go so smoothly.

We loved having Reverend Andrew Murphy as our officiant! He was recommended by Tlaquepaque Chapel, and his immediate/helpful response was comforting - we had found our wedding officiant! He helped us map out our ceremony and was patient when we needed more time to make decisions. He was very open to our own spirituality and supported us in choosing our own readings or from a list of his suggestions. Although we never met before, we felt very comfortable communicating with him, as we spoke to him a couple times over the phone beforehand and emailed back and forth. We let him know our preferences for the ceremony, and he planned it out for us (one less thing to worry about!). Our wedding was on St. Patrick's Day, so he chose an Irish blessing for us as well. The day of the wedding, even though we had a slight change, he was understanding and accommodating. All of my grandparents have passed on, and he took great care in pronouncing their names correctly in remembrance during the ceremony. We felt so much at ease during the ceremony - all we had to do was say our vows, and he directed the rest! Also, he was very comfortable conducting the ceremony and had great suggestions on how it should go since he had conducted many ceremonies there before. He had even worked with our photographer, Janise Witt, before, and it was just one less thing to worry about! My fiance and I had been engaged for about 3 months before reaching out to Reverend Andrew. We planned a small ceremony ( just less than 30 guests)...almost like an elopement . We chose the Outdoor Simplicity Package, which was everything we needed and fit in our budget. The one thing that would have made the day even better would have been to have his wife, Laura, as our wedding planner. Initially, I was opposed to hiring a wedding planner. In hindsight, I would have appreciated having someone in charge of the day (and planning it!). It goes by so fast, that is one thing I wish we would have done! More...

Our wedding day could not have gone any smoother, and it's largely thanks to Laura and Andrew! Laura was extremely helpful throughout the entire process of planning. She got to know the style we were looking for and was able to help us decide on flowers, decor, rentals, and everything else we needed. She knew the venue we were using well, so she was able to create a rental order for us that covered what we needed. She set up our meetings for our one trip to Sedona prior to the wedding so that we had time to meet with everyone, and attended the flower & venue meeting to make sure everyone was on the same page. She also walked us through everything we needed the week of the wedding so that we felt we had everything under control. I can't believe how smoothly the day of the wedding went, and how little stress I felt. The room looked more incredible than I could have imagined, and everything went according to her very detailed plan. I can't express enough how much stress Laura took off our plates and allowed us to enjoy our wedding day! Reverend Andrew was also fantastic. We loved the personal touches he added to our ceremony and how he wanted to meet and hear about our relationship so that personal details could be included in the ceremony. It felt like he had known us since day 1! We highly recommend using Heart of Sedona Weddings if you want a beautiful, stress-free, memorable event. More...

Good morning Rev. Andrew,

Todd, our family, friends, and myself want to express our gratitude to you for such a beautiful and meaningful ceremony last Saturday. Your words were perfect! Working with you was very relaxing and easy ! This was such a very special time for all of us, thank you for helping us bring it all together.

Our dinner at the Barking Frog was so much fun! The service was outstanding! They had the entire patio set up for us and our daughter Emily brought things for them to set up. They had multiple photos of us set all over the table, flowers, candles and a wedding cake station! The ambiance was fabulous! ALSO, all three of our children spoke at our dinner, emotional through tears of joy. It was an evening of bliss!

We stayed in Sedona until Monday. (We all hiked Devils Bridge on Sunday).
Today we are in Ohio for a week to visit family.

Thank you again from the bottom of our hearts! We know you would love to retire, but we would recommend you to EVERYONE!

Blessings,

Todd and Kelly Florence

We had an excellent experience working with Laura! Planning a destination wedding is challenging and hiring Laura was the best decision we made for our wedding. She is there every step of the way. She helps you pick vendors, organizes meetings with vendors, organizes transportation for the wedding, assists in setting up room blocks, compiles a rental order, provides a timeline for the wedding day, handles deliveries on the wedding day, and makes sure everything runs smoothly during the wedding day. Laura has a lot of experience with wedding planning and her advice was always extremely helpful. Our wedding day was absolutely perfect and a large part of that was a result of Laura's hard work.

So my husband and I flew out to Sedona to scout a new location and she had prepared a map of all the different locations that would be a better fit for our needs. Laura has great relationships with many vendors in Sedona and works with your needs to find a perfect match. Even though it was a destination wedding Laura made it less stressful, in fact everyone asked why I was so calm on the wedding day and it was because I knew Laura had everything under control. I would highly recommend Laura and Heart of Sedona Weddings whether you have a small intimate wedding or a large extravagant wedding! She's the best! More...

I contacted Andrew around a month prior to our elopement date.  We had an idea of what we wanted, but unsure where to do it.  Andrew was incredibly responsive and went way above and beyond what I expected.  Not only did he find our venue and obtain the necessary permit, but he sent me links and suggestions for hotels, restaurants and even where to go for our marriage license.  It was the second marriage for both of us and we both have children from our previous marriages.  Andrew designed our ceremony to include our children and make them feel very much a part of our special day.  I can't say enough good things.  Thank you for everything Andrew!

I absolutely loved working with Laura and Andrew! If it wasn't for them, I don't think we could have pulled off planning a wedding from across the country. Laura was always in constant communication; she knew exactly when to get things done and knew who the best vendors were on our budget. I've heard so many stories about brides that were so stressed the day of their wedding, but because of Laura and Andrew, I truly didn't even think twice about anything. I had a complete stress free day and got to enjoy every minute of it from start to finish. More...

Rev Andrew was helpful, kind, and gave us the most wonderful ceremony this past weekend June 25, 2016 in Tlaquepaque!He answered all questions, and truly cared about creating a meaningful service for us.  Laura was unavailable to work with us to a scheduling conflict, but from the get-go Andrew said he'd be happy to manage some of the details, and he did so beautifully!  He played Liaison with an amazing photographer for us and true to his word, everything he touched went smoothly. At the beginning he sent us a few questions about out relationship for us to answer that really helped him to mold the service to be about us, how we met, and the love that we have together and he took the time to speak with both of us the day before the wedding and really talk with us. He made us feel like ours was the only thing in the world that he was doing, and nothing else mattered.The service was spectacular in part because of Andrew and he truly made it custom to us as a couple. I cannot recommend them highly enough to the next couple looking to get married in the Sedona area. More...

I began to work with Laura ~1.5 years before our destination wedding in Sedona. From the start, Laura's services were invaluable. She was extremely well organized with a high attention to every detail. She had strong relationships in the community that she leverages as needed to "makes things happen". Laura had great insight into wedding planning...and execution the day of the event. She became a trusted advisor for us throughout the months of planning, and a dear friend by the day of the event.

In summary, when I think of Laura, I think of a conductor of a symphony. One can have a beautiful venue, talented musicians, the best instruments - but you need the conductor to bring it all together for an amazing performance. For us, Laura was that conductor. She enabled us to pick all of the pieces (the food, the venue, the flowers etc) to make it our special day...but she was the conductor that brought it all together and made for a beautiful event that we will forever remember.

Additionally, Laura's husband, Rev. Andrew, provided a beautiful and heartfelt ceremony for us. He took time to get to know us to ensure that the ceremony would be personable... It was beautiful.

We would highly recommend Laura, and Rev Andrew, for their services. They are the best!

Finding Andrew and Heard of Sedona Weddings was the first blessing of our marriage. He was absolutely amazing from start to finish. We chose the "Let Them Eat Cake" package because we wanted a very intimate wedding with just our closest family and friends. Andrew was AMAZING!!! He has a pastry chef he works with for the cakes (perfect), and a florist for the flowers. He provided suggestions for about a dozen different outdoor venues in Sedona, with links to photos taken at each. And when we chose Merry Go Round Rock for our ceremony site, he gave us a contact at Pink Jeep Tours to help us set those details in motion.

After filling out just a short questionnaire a few months before the wedding, Andrew was able to piece our answers together into the most personal anecdotes which he wove into our ceremony. I can't say enough about Heart of Sedona Weddings, or Andrew Murphy, they were simply outstanding. I would recommend them to my nearest and dearest without hesitation.

Andrew Murphy at Heart of Sedona Weddings was fantastic! He was very responsive and helpful from Day 1. He sent us a ton of information to help us design the perfect ceremony, and he incorporated things about us that he had learned from our emails and phone conversations that made the ceremony very personalized and about us. You never would have known the first time we met in person was 2 days before the wedding! That personalization was something that we really appreciated and was probably not something we were thinking about upfront when choosing an officiant. In addition to the wonderful ceremony he wrote for us, Andrew was very flexible with us the day of the wedding. When the weather didn't quite cooperate with us, he was still willing to grab an umbrella and find the perfect site so we could still enjoy the beauty of Sedona and the Red Rocks during our ceremony. Thank you, Andrew, for making our day perfect! More...

Andrew was great! Since we had never been to Sedona, or our venue location in person prior to our ceremony, Andrew provided us with so much information that would assist us for our entire visit. He was very flexible with our schedules, since we arriving in town the day before and only had a few hours to get everything done. We were very blessed to have him preform our ceremony.
Victoria Nabours was our photographer and I couldn't have asked for better experience. Since I wasn't able to meet with her prior to the ceremony, I sent a list of the requests of certain pictures. She made all of them happen and so much more. She made sure we stayed on schedule and was very flexible with the ideas we had while we were at the venue. She was so very sweet and nice and I couldn't have asked for a better photographer. Her turn around time for picture return was impeccable. We are very satisfied with our pictures!

We couldn't have picked a better wedding planner. This was a destination wedding, and after speaking to several local planers Laura communication won us over. It was clear that she knew all the right people to do exactly what we wanted. Her attention to detail was A+.

After meeting with them we knew we were in great hands. They are down to earth friendly people who are true professionals. We put our trust in them for several decisions and they showed that they were listening to us and understood our goals.

Andrew's genuine process of getting to know us created a personalized ceremony that many of the guests recognized and complemented him on.

Mi esposo y yo vivimos en Washington DC pero sabíamos que queríamos casarnos en la hermosa Sedona.
Fue difícil organizar todo desde lejos así que empece con lo mas importante: ¡Ministro! Hice una lista de los que aprecian en internet y Andrew era el segudo.
Cuando le llamé inmediatamente supe que era él quien debía casarnos. Sentí una conexión especial desde esa primera llamada. Andrew diseño nuestra ceremonia bilingüe (inglés y español) en un estilo muy particular con momentos de seriedad y otros de carcajadas . Nos dejo elegir los elementos que queríamos que fueran parte de nuestra boda e incluso mencionó anécdotas especiales que Brett y yo vivimos.
Toda nuestra familia sintió el amor y la trascendencia de nuestra unión por medio de sus palabras. Andrew además de amable y genuino, fue muy amable al darnos tips de cosas que necesitábamos saber como flores, maquillaje y peinado, restaurantes y demás. Si quieres que tu boda sea única y especial te recomiendo a Andrew totalmente.

Rev. Andrew was very pleasant to work with and his ceremony flowed perfectly. He listened to what was important to include in our wedding ceremony. His sayings were thoughtful and personal that was a direct reflection of my spouse and I even only meeting with Andrew a couple of times. He brought a sense of calmness to me while being in front of my guest.
Laura my planner was wonderful to work with! We had several issues with vendors and she knew when to step in and smolder a few fires! I really appreciated her reassurance along with calming demeanor. The day of the wedding she really took charge and I had no worries, she made sure there was not a thing I needed to think about or take care of with the preparations and to just enjoy the day!
The only part of the day that I wish had been different was at the photos pre-ceremony I felt a bit rushed and did not realize I was in charge of getting photos taken in a certain order and missed a few basic photos that I did not think I needed to be included in my list like of me and my maid of honor, that was not taken by the photographer but I feel that is more of the photographer task.
Overall Heart of Sedona was a great resource to use for planning a wedding from out of town. Both Andrew and Laura were very professional, organized and easy to discuss issues with. Both are very pleasant and make it a point to keep you the customer at the center of their attention and make sure the day is about the couple!

From the initial contact via an E-mail to the day of our wedding, Andrew Murphy made everything happen for our special day flow seamlessly. It was a pleasure meeting with Andrew at his house prior to our wedding day. The day of our wedding was picture perfect and the words that Andrew helped us choose for our ceremony were said by him, through his heart. Andrew Murphy was the perfect choice.

Andrew recommended other vendors to us from the photographer, the florist and the hairdresser and everyone of these vendors treated us with warm wishes and preformed exceptionally.

We would recommend Heart of Sedona Weddings to anyone that wants that picture perfect wedding.

My partner of nine years and I were married by Andrew just this past Saturday. We planned our elopement ceremony in Sedona in only four weeks from 270 miles away. From the very beginning, Andrew was prompt and professional with his email correspondence. He was very flexible when we requested a date change early on. Andrew guided us through this process and made planning a wedding very easy. He answered all of our questions and provided all the support we needed to plan our special day. After answering his thoughtful questions via email, and conducting a short phone interview, Andrew created the perfect ceremony for us. He assured us that a ceremony has a certain flow, and as he spoke, it was like he had known us for years. We are so grateful that we found Andrew and we can't imagine a better officiant for our wedding day. More...

Our day could not have gone any better and Reverend Andrew Murphy played a huge role. He seems to have things down to a science yet gives you all the flexibility in how you want your ceremony to go that you'd ever need. We feel he truly got to understand us in a short amount of time and that was reflected in his words during the ceremony. We can't thank him enough and highly recommend him.

As important as Reverend Andrew was, we simply could not have done it at all without Laura Marolakos as our Wedding Planner. We originally chose Laura because of our similar taste in design. She was there from the start providing support when needed, helping us make decisions and coordinating the entire day. The absolute best thing we can say is that during the day, we never worried about a thing. It could not have gone any better from our perspective. We barely noticed her at all when things were happening. She was busy, though. Watching videos that family members sent us, she was there the entire time making sure even the tiniest of details was not overlooked. We can't have been happier with how things went.

Eloping can be a stressful experience, especially if you haven't met the minister who is going to marry you. From my first phone conversation with Andrew Murphy, he was attentive and caring, and put my fears at ease. He truly cared about giving us a memorable ceremony. Although we didn't need any wedding planning services, he was great about recommending vendors and restaurants for our stay in Sedona. He created a very personalized ceremony, utilizing things we'd talked about prior to the ceremony. We felt we had the perfect wedding, and Andrew played a big part in making our day special. He's a kind person I would recommend to any couple! More...

He really listened to our story, our wants and needs, understood our personalities and molded it all into such a lovely ceremony. We had the most special day and we're so touched at how sweet and sentimental, our ceremony was.

He made the planning a breeze by coordinating hair and make, Jeep rentals, and photographer in just a few simple emails.

We keep replaying the day over and over, it was simply perfect and we did not want the day to end. We could not have asked for a more perfect wedding and are so thankful we found Rev. Murphy.

What a wonderful experience. Heart of Sedona and Rev Murphy were simply superb from the very first email through to the wedding day itself. We both cannot speak highly enough of Rev Murphy’s help and support to make our day so special.

We live in the UK and decided upon Arizona for of wedding setting as we had enjoyed previous vacations there. After an initial Google search, we spotted Heart of Sedona. Contact was easy with responses always prompt and comprehensive, full of ideas and the information required to make our day such a success. We chose a simple ceremony at Red Rock Crossing together with a photography and video package. Everything was exactly as we had hoped it would be (and more). Not only did Rev Murphy reply to every one of the many emails I sent, he was on hand two days before the wedding to run through a dress rehearsal to ensure the day ran as smoothly as possible. During the ceremony we were very impressed with the preparatory work Rev Murphy had clearly undertaken to make the service very personal to us.

We would both recommend Rev Murphy without any hesitation and the services of Heart of Sedona. The only sad thing was actually saying goodbye to someone who had become more of a friend in the months preceding the wedding.

I would HIGHLY RECOMMEND Pastor Andrew for any event needs you may have.

I was the mother of the bride at a recent wedding in Sedona, Arizona. We are from California so it was necessary to do all of the arrangements at a distance. This could have been a problem for many reasons but Pastor Andrew was easy to work with, flexible, and focused on the COUPLES needs, wants, and preferences.

From the time I met Pastor Andrew on the rehearsal evening to the day of the wedding, I was impressed by his gentle manner; his punctuality; his ease of communicating; his warmth; and his professionalism. The individualized, heartfelt service he created and led exceeded the expectations of EVERYONE in attendance. Many, many guests noted how impressed they were with Pastor Andrew.

It is no wonder that his business is called Heart of Sedona because this is truly what Pastor Andrew puts into his calling: his heart. Our fond memories of my child's wedding day will always include Pastor Andrew and his flawless attention to personal details that made this wedding ceremony one of the most meaningful we have ever witnessed.

Heart of Sedona Weddings is the complete package. Andrew was our officiant and the ceremony was just beautiful, heartfelt and personal. What an amazing job and my husband and I just loved it (the guests did too)!
Andrew and Laura work as a team and again, what a great package. Since my husband and I live across the country, we needed guidance and suggestions from Laura; as in, a place for our ceremony, suggestions for our Meet and Greet and also some fantastic suggestions for our dinner. We had some guests that needed a little special care and these needs were taken care of and then some. Laura was instrumental the day of the wedding making sure the vendors provided their part(s), the bride was situated and everything was on time and the way it should be. One of my guests told me she moved 50 chairs to make sure they were out of the sun!!! The venue for dinner was absolutely amazing with fantastic food. All thanks to Laura and Andrew, our day was unforgettable. Thank you!

His ceremonie was a delight. As we are not following a certain religion, it was a very personalized ceremonie and everything we could have dreamed of. He made us feel comfortable and helped us to create an unforgettable moment.
As we needed 2 widnesses, we were so pleased with Rev. Andrew´s choice.

Laura provided us with wonderful vendor suggestions and was extremely responsive and efficient. On the day of our wedding, Laura was in the zone and made sure everything ran smoothly. Andrew has a quiet zen that sets you at ease. His personalization of the ceremony truly made it our own. And of course, Sedona makes the most perfect setting for this magic to take place.

He not only sent us information about the ceremony itself but included extensive information about venues, florists, restaurants, photographers, videographers, hair and makeup, musicians, cakes, where to get our marriage license and how to have it recognized in Canada, all of which was EXTREMELY helpful since we are not from Sedona.
We were looking for a spiritual yet not overtly religious ceremony and Andrew got it just right. We were extremely pleased with the entire experience and know that we chose the right person for the job. I would absolutely recommend Heart of Sedona Weddings to anyone planning to get married in Sedona.

She was incredibly attentive the day of the wedding and made sure everything went off without any problems at all! She and Andrew met with us a couple of times prior to the wedding so that Andrew could craft an amazingly personalized ceremony for us. It was absolutely perfect.

Reverend Andrew took the time to really understand how we relate to each other, to the world, & to our concept of God. He was able to integrate this essence into our ceremony. He was able to please our more religious families, while providing a unique & personal experience for us.
We heard "This is the best wedding we've ever been to" from several of our friends & family members. Laura's meticulous planning & attention to detail had a lot to do with that. The night went off without a hitch and was memorable for everyone that was a part of it.

Rev Andrew came highly recommended and we saw for ourselves why, as he officiated at our recent wedding in Sedona.
His kindness,sensitivity, gentleness, intelligence and humor were all a wonderful guide throughout our special day.
He made our vows perfect, taking what we had requested and adding a little personal info about us into our ceremony.
We talked to him for about an hour the day before our wedding , where we got to know each other, and he was very attentive and caring that we got the ceremony that we wanted.
In all, he was perfect!!!

We really liked that Reverend Andrew took the time to meet with us and learn more about how we met, etc. He was also very flexible when we had changes to the ceremony. He made us feel comfortable through the whole process and officiated our wedding ceremony with a kind and professional manner- and he hiked up a pretty steep rock to marry us on! More...

Andrew performed a beautiful & touching ceremony for our Intimate destination wedding in Sedona.

It was difficult to select an officiant (from the list of Sedona vendors provided by our resort) from a distance and having not met. However, Hearts of Sedona Weddings Website was very imformative & in fact I fell in love with the sample ceremony from the website & knew Andrew was the right officiant for us!

We, as well as our family & friends, were surprised & pleased at how Andrew was able to bring so much of our relationship and personal lives into his presentation! He was a pleasure to work with and he certainly put our minds at ease throughout the whole event.

Our wedding was absolutely perfect & we loved it!

Thank you Andrew!

We cannot thank Rev. Andrew enough for the beautiful, romantic and very personal ceremony he performed for us. He is a great source of information and made planning very easy for us. We also opted for photos and both he and his wife Laura, captured very special moments. They are a wonderful team and I would definitely recommend them to anyone that would like to get married in Sedona. More...

My Fiancé and I wanted a elegant small ceremony but wanted to be married in a Church. We came across Reverend Andrew Murphy, when I looked at his website and pictures of his services, it seemed perfect. I was a little leery of just hiring someone over the web without meeting him in person. After speaking with the Reverend numerous times before the wedding he seemed amazing, professional and to have a true passion for his job. Well we were right, he was amazing a true natural and the vows were perfectly written for us. The whole experience could not have been more perfect in everyway!!!! I would recommend Reverend Murphy to any wedding party!!!! Wonderful man!!! More...

Andrew was absolutely fabulous! He nailed our ceremony; we laughed, we cried, we married. It was an incredible experience that I would be happy to do it all over again...perhaps as a vow renewal?!?! We are from California. Our only correspondence was over the phone until we met Andrew just the day before. He seemed to understand LOVE and really cherish it in his own life. Who better would you want to marry you than someone who speaks of love fondly? I couldn't have specified a better fit for us. Thank you Andrew!!!! More...

I worked with both Andrew and Laura with Heart of Sedona Weddings for my wedding at L'Auberge in May of 2013. Both Laura and Andrew work very hard to ensure your wedding is exactly as you want it to be. Andrew was the officiant at our ceremony. He personalized our ceremony, was professional and did an amazing job. Laura was phenomenal! She knows all of the ins and outs and secret tips for planning your wedding in Sedona. Laura is genuine, professional and worked side by side prior to and the day of the wedding with all of the other vendors and our families to ensure all of the details for the day were confirmed and went off without a hitch! She is a GEM!! More...

because it was a destination wedding all our contact before the wedding was email or phone except for the day before. it is amazing how well he got to know us and plan a ceremony that really fit us personally. Anyone else he recommended - hair stylist, restaurant, was equally amazing. Everything about our day was perfect and reverend Andrew made it all smooth and easy. More...

Laura, well can 't say enough about her or her services as a wedding planner, she is extremely organized, experienced, creative, reassuring, kind, and calming.  Laura goes the extra mile and then still keeps running.  Its amazing to watch this team, bring it all together to make your day special & memories that will last a lifetime.

My wife and I planned a destination wedding in Sedona Arizona earlier this year. When it came to officiants we did not know where to start. Jill at Poco Diablo recommended Rev. Andrew Murphy and as soon as we met him, we were comfortable and knew why he was recommended. We were looking for a non-denominational ceremony that centered around our love of nature, travel and pets. We completed a questionnaire and had an informal meeting with Andrew and he nailed it! The ceremony was perfect. He listed to us, learned who we were as a couple and as individuals and wrote an amazing ceremony.

1 recommendation for folks considering an outdoor ceremony: make sure there is back-up PA system for the ceremony. We had some technical difficulties during the ceremony, but that was just a minor blip.

We would recommend Andrew without hesitation. He is personable, listed to what we wanted, and delivered. He was a big part in making this day memorable! Thank you Andrew.

We worked with Laura Marolakos for our wedding planning needs as well as Rev. Andrew Murphy for our Ceremony.

They are both a great team and we enjoyed working with them on the details over the course of a year or so when planning our wedding. Laura was very helpful in ensuring we were focusing on the right tasks at the right times. When we had difficulty with any of our vendors or obtaining the information we needed, she was there every step of the way to help.

We could not have gone through this feat of planning a wedding without her. She provides an invaluable service. I've read in many places where people say that you don't need a wedding planner or coordinator for your day. I could not imagine how the day would pan out and how stressful all those details would have been if I roughed it alone. I would recommend Laura to anyone planning a wedding in the Sedona area.

Rev. Andrew Murphy was wonderful in working with us to plan our ceremony. The ceremony itself was beautiful and fit in perfectly with how we had envisioned it to be. This was the most memorable part of our whole day not only because this is the part of the day that is truly about us as a couple and the reason we are gathered, but because many of the readings in the ceremony rang so true to us as a couple. Everything said during that ceremony touched my heart and all my guests could agree with the many happy tears I had cried that day.

We recommend using both of their services for your wedding.

I am very, very pleased with our decision to go with Heart of Sedona Weddings for our wedding ceremony. For over two years we corresponded with Reverend Andrew and Laura. They were helpful and gave us ideas and information before we had even signed a contract or sent a check into them. At first we had decided to just hire Andrew for his services. I thought I could take care of everything on the day of my wedding but intuitively I began to think differently and decided to hire Laura as my coordinator as well. Brides, doing this will be the most important thing for you. Hire Laura!My whole day would have fallen apart without her. I probably would have forgotten vital things back at the hotel room and I seriously would have been hours behind schedule, I kid you not. She kept me together, got my flowers to the hotel on time, made sure my hair and makeup team and photographer got to me at the right place, right time and kept my groom out of the hotel room so that he wouldn't see too much before the right time. Some of the lace on my dress mysteriously tore on the way to Sedona and Laura had it patched up and ready to go, I can't even tell where she fixed it. We met with them the night before the wedding as two tired bundles of nerves and they walked us through our ceremony and finalized everything with us. We also had a mini rehearsal, which made us both feel at ease about going through the actual ceremony. Honestly, the whole day was a total blur but Andrew and Laura could not have been better or more gracious. Andrew had a great deal of respect for the various customs we wanted to add to our wedding and incorporated each one beautifully. More...

I have nothing but the best things to say about Andrew and Laura. We contacted them about two years before our wedding date and they were patient and answered all of our questions as we worked on planning a destination elopement in Sedona.

Andrew took his time to interview both my fiance and I to build a personal ceremony. He put in every reading and every quote that we asked for, allowed us to personalize our vows, and added in some beautiful thoughts of his own per our request.

His wife Laura, the other half of Heart of Sedona, served as our coordinator for our wedding day and I would have been three days late for my own wedding if it were not for her. What they say is true, the day does go by in a blur and things WILL happen. She made sure my hair and makeup team knew where to find me and made sure my flowers were delivered to the hotel on time. As I was getting my hair and makeup done she mended part of my dress where some lace had started to come off, something I would have not had the time to do.

When it came time for us to go to our wedding location (which was off a little outdoor trail and near a cliff) Laura did an excellent job of setting up our Ketubah, some chairs for my family, and she took excellent care of our little doggie dude throughout the ceremony and the photography afterwards.

If you are eloping or planning a wedding for 200 in Sedona, Laura's services will be indispensable, she is so sweet and so nice and really cares about her girls on her wedding day. My husband and I are already excited for when we get to go back and renew our vows with Heart of Sedona. And if you haven't found an officiant yet I highly recommend Andrew, he is open-minded and did an excellent job of helping my fiance and I blend all of our cultural and spiritual traditions together.

Laura Marolakos and Rev. Andrew Murphy with Heart of Sedona are, without a doubt, what made our wedding perfect. My husband and I first met Laura and Rev. Murphy because we wanted a bilingual wedding ceremony. They are such a great and supportive team that we knew immediately that we wanted to work with them. And from the moment we hired Laura and Rev. Murphy, our wedding experience became so much easier and fun. Laura connected us with the best vendors around, and in many cases vendors we never would have found if it weren't for her recommendations. She helped us to stay within our budget and in the end I believe we ended up saving money thanks to her excellent relationships with various vendors. Laura gave us some great ideas for our wedding and reception when we had none. Rev. Murphy was also just amazing. We wanted a ceremony that was non-traditional yet spiritual. He listened to our ideas and was also very resourceful and provided us with many options for readings. Even though we were cities apart, they were always very responsive to any email communication. They always put our minds at ease whenever we would stress and handled everything completely professionally. On the day of our wedding, Laura ran everything with perfect precision. Her detailed timeline kept everything moving on schedule. Our ceremony was so beautiful and heartfelt. Rev. Murphy's words were so moving, our ceremony turned out so much better then we could have hoped for! Everything seemed almost personalized and his presentation was very eloquent. In the mean time, Laura was on top of all details and when we missed something, she was right there handling it and she even went so far as making our table layout for our reception. We never anticipated that we would LOVE our wedding planner and officiant and highly recommend them. We are greatly appreciative of Laura and Rev. Murphy and will never forget them and all they did for us! More...

Laura Marolakos was TERRIFIC!! I would HIGHLY recommend her services. We had a destination wedding in Sedona, AZ - a 2 day drive from where we live.
I contacted her through her website and she was very easy to communicate with throughout the entire process. She gave me suggestions for local vendors and helped answer any questions that I had about the whole "marriage process".
She helped resolve a few issues with vendors once we arrived in town and was tremendously helpful for the rehearsal and the day of. Very calm and very punctual. A real asset for any bride!

Reverend Andrew Murphy was the officiant for our wedding day. He was very kind to meet with us throughout the wedding planning process. He is able to adapt your wedding day to your vision. He went over in detail the step by step of the wedding ceremony and provided us with information and suggestions from his website. He added that special touch to our wedding ceremony in memory of my father who had passed away and wasn't able to be there with us on our wedding day. Andrew has performed many weddings in Sedona and is a great officiant to work with. We were very pleased by his professionalism and dignity for such a fabulous and memorable ceremony. More...

I cannot stress how HAPPY I am that I worked with Hearts of Sedona Weddings to create my perfect wedding. Reverend Andrew and Laura are the most inspiring, creative, professional, effective, helpful couple I have ever utilized. Reverend Andrew made a great effort in understanding our relationship, getting to know us and creating a personalized and heartfelt ceremony. My bridesmaids were all in tears. Laura is tremendous at planning and is a creative visionary. I started out with no theme and incoherent inspirations for the wedding, but Laura pulled it all together beautifully. Even when I had difficulty articulating what I wanted, Laura was able to visualize it and create it almost out of thin air. Because of Hearts of Sedona Weddings, our wedding was flawless and it was the best day of our lives! I highly recommend using their services! More...

Laura and Andrew were amazing!

Andrew crafted a wonderful and personalized ceremony for us -- he captured who we are and even made sure to include something about our animals as they are very important to us.

At first, I didn't think that I needed any help coordinating the wedding because it was a small 35 person event and told Andrew (as they are a husband and wife team) that we wouldn't need his wife, Laura's services. But I began to feel overwhelmed and decided that I wanted help. Laura was fantastic. Always available for a quick email or chat. She was a great help and thinks of EVERYTHING. And she has great taste! She expertly guided me through flowers and the table layouts. I was especially happy that we enlisted her help when our original venue ended up not working out. Laura talked me down off of a cliff and called around town and found us options. She found us a venue that was 100 times better than the original place. She was there for the day of coordination (she is meticulous and had a very detailed timeline worked out for the day); she kept everything flowing smoothly and on time. I didn't have to worry about a thing because I knew Laura was taking care of it. She made sure the small wedding program (dances, toasts, etc) happened and wrangled our crazy families. Now I tell everyone I know that hiring her was the best money I spent on my wedding. She is well worth the cost (and its very reasonable), even if you have to do some juggling with your budget. I wanted a beautiful, memorable, and worry free day and I got just that!

We interviewed several officiants before deciding on Rev. Andrew Murphy. We had a difficult time finding someone in Sedona who was a good fit for us. Some of the others were a bit too "new-agey" or appeared to be in it for an easy buck. Rev. Murphy is a genuinely kind, nice person and enjoys he's job. Our ceremony was very personal and Rev. Murphy was open to suggestions. Our families also commented on how touching our ceremony was. More...

Tom & I loved Rev. Andrew Murphy from our very first meeting! Andrew is very flexible and helpful - even after a couple time changes and then ultimately a complete venue change, he was unwavering in his support and help. He has a wonderful sense of humor and puts you at ease from the start. All our guests thought the world of him as do we - thank you Andrew (Rev. Murphy) for a perfect ceremony that we will always remember/cherish!

It was a pleasure and joy to work with such a gentle spirit as Andrew. More...
