Just because your wedding-day guest list can no longer read like a veritable telephone book (did you really want your mom’s best friend’s nephew at your wedding, anyway?), that doesn’t mean you can’t have the big day of your dreams. These four Arizona resorts are offering micro-wedding packages for lovebirds wanting to wed in front of their nearest and dearest in high style.
Sedona’s Amara Resort and Spa has launched an intimate elopement and micro-wedding package for up to 22 guests priced from $1,100.

The package includes a decadent three-course, plated dinner courtesy of SaltRock; upgrade to a Bridal Suite at a Courtyard King Room Rate, priced separately; bridal suite balcony or creekside wedding site; arch and/or podium; assistance with sourcing vendors for officiant, photographer, florist and bakery; sparkling wine and chocolate-covered strawberries in bridal suite; and breakfast at SaltRock or in-room dining for bridal couple.
