Andrew Murphy, Sedona wedding officiant, provide full-service planning and coordination to take your dreams and bring them to life.

Experience
Andrew trained at Jesuit School of Theology in Chicago, was ordained in New Orleans, his hometown, and worked in India and Mexico before he relocated to the southwest, where he fell in love with Sedona's natural beauty. Laura graduated from Parsons School of Design in New York City and worked with world-renowned designer Perry Ellis before creating her own line of bridal fashion and couture collections. She then segued into costume designing in Hollywood for feature films which brought her closer to Sedona (her great escape for the stresses of the world).

    Laura + HOSW rocks!!!

    I've worked with Heart of Sedona weddings many times (as a wedding photographer) and I cannot say enough about how incredible their team is!! Laura is always on top of everything; I've watched her conquer the most complicated timelines with ease and grace. Every couple loves working with her, and every vendor is so happy when they hear her name. You can't go wrong with Heart of Sedona Weddings!

    Heart of Sedona Weddings's reply:

    Thanks so much, Molly! We always LOVE working with you, too! Looking forward to when we can 'play' together again!!

    Hosw is the best!

    We hired Laura for month-of coordination and were absolutely blown away by how incredible she was. Not only did she plan us the most BEAUTIFUL wedding, but she went above and beyond several times to ensure our day was everything we wanted. She is the most professional planner while also being so kind and patient, and hung in there with me through so many changes, delayed responses, etc. I actually cried at the end of the reception because I was so grateful for her hard work and also so sad that our planning time together had come to an end! HOSW and Laura are the best, hands-down.

    Heart of Sedona Weddings's reply:

    Oh my, Julie, thank you so much for your kind and beautiful words, now I'm in tears!! I will miss working together with you and wish you a beautiful and happy life together!! xo

    Preferred vendor

    I am not a client but wedding vendor. I have been working with Andrew and Laura for about seven years now and absolutely love their style and professionalism. I am very picky about who I refer my clients to as it’s important that they are taking good care of. These two have been my top recommendation for all of my couples who want wedding planning or officiant. Thank you Andrew and Laura for consistently being incredible I look forward to the next time we work together!

    Thank you so much dearest Rebekah...we love working with you and look forward to when we can 'play' together again!!!

We can say with confidence that she is the best of the best and always has the clients best interests at heart. Andrew the officiant is fantastic at officiating weddings and has a very pleasant sounding voice. We being a wedding film company like incorporating his audio into the films when possible because of his romantic and fitting verbiage. We would highly recommend hiring "Heart of Sedona Weddings" for your wedding needs.
