Sedona, Arizona — When Sedona photographer Brian Smith and his fiancee took the plunge to marry in 2019, the couple’s hopes were raised.
Smith said he had never felt so alive and surrounded by his love for the city.
But as the two were preparing to get married in Sedona in October, Smith said his thoughts turned to his own future.
“We’re just thinking of moving back to Canada and living in Vancouver.
That’s a very big possibility,” Smith said.
“I just feel like I need to find the right balance between what’s best for my family and my career.
I feel like we have to make a decision as a family.”
In his final year at the University of Arizona, Smith was working as a wedding photographer and the wedding planner for the Sedona College of Art & Design.
He and his fiancé had just moved to the city to take advantage of a booming art market.
They were looking forward to their new city, but also to getting married.
“It was the perfect timing,” Smith told CBC News.
“There were so many other things going on that I really didn’t even realize.
I’m not sure what would have happened if we were going to go to Canada now. “
The timing was perfect.
I’m not sure what would have happened if we were going to go to Canada now.
The weather was great and it was a beautiful weekend.”
But Smith said it would have been very different if the couple had gone to Vancouver, Canada.
“You would have felt like the weather was going to change.
The sea level would have risen.
There would have not been so much sea.
We’d have been in Vancouver a couple of months before we actually went.”
That’s because the Sedna Beach Resort was built on the site of the former site of a dam that dammed the Gulf of Arizona.
The dam was constructed in the 1860s.
It’s a remnant of a natural phenomenon called the Little Flood that caused water to rush over the canyon’s southern shoreline.
In the summer of 1860, floodwaters inundated the coastal plain, causing the town of Sedona to be renamed.
“One of the big things that attracted me to Sedona is its history and culture and the fact that it’s the only place in Arizona that you can have a lake, so there’s not a lot of other places that have that,” Smith explained.
“People have been coming to Sedna for years and years, and I just feel so lucky to be able to do something like that.”
The city’s tourism industry has flourished over the past few decades, but Sedona was hit hard by the Little Rainy season in the 1990s, which forced many businesses and businesses to close.
Smith has worked at Sedona for about 20 years and said the city has suffered through a few rough patches.
He’s also a passionate artist and photographer who uses his skills to promote his city and provide support to the community.
“That’s my passion,” Smith says.
“A lot of people, they get married here, and they come here for the wedding and the reception, and that’s all they do.”
He hopes to bring those same elements to his wedding, and also share the joys and challenges of being a wedding planner.
“In Sedona the weather is so perfect that I think the wedding is going to be a great success,” Smith added.
“And that’s what I’m hoping.”
