Creating Personal Traditions:
Writing your own wedding vows may suit your
personal wedding style, but it can be a bit of a
daunting task to begin
with. If you are trying
to write your own vows, don’t let the task
overwhelm you or intimidate you. Writing your
vows should begin and end with how you feel,
not what others are expecting. If you are
creating your own wedding
ceremony and style and
you want to write your own vows, here are a few
questions to consider in creating the
want to make.
When and where did you first meet?
What was the state of your life before the two
of you met?
At what point did you realize you were in love?
Describe the feeling.
What inspires you about your loved one?
What life goals and dreams do you share?
What have you learned from each other?
What qualities make your love unique? What
qualities will keep it strong?
How has your view of the world changed since you
fell in love?
What do you most look forward to about life with
What are some special moments in your
relationship? Use them all, even the sad times
as well as the happy,
moving, or profound.
What happened the day you asked her to marry
you? How did you feel?
Reading the vows you have written yourself
during your wedding ceremony can be one of the
most romantic things
you’ve ever done. It’s the
kind of thing that really helps you create your
own personal wedding style. Writing your own
vows is a kind of personal touch that cannot be
replicated by any other style of vow.

In a rather
bizarre manner, the history of this area does
not have its roots in Sedona, which T.C.
Schnebly named after
his wife in
1902. Instead, the story had its beginning in
Oak Creek Canyon, where Glenn Kilbourne and
characters in Zane Grey's The Call of the
Canyon, lived and loved under looming, stone
walls and whispering
Long before Grey hunted, fished and wrote in the
wild and lonely canyon, however, the first
settler to heed the call, J.J.
claimed property under this country's 1862
Homestead Act. In 1876, Thompson took squatters
rights to a
parcel of land
across from today's Indian Gardens Store, where
a year earlier, scouts from Fort Verde now, Camp
had captured a
small band of Tonto Apache Indians.
When Thompson took his land, he found the
Indian's deserted gardens and a healthy spring,
which encouraged him to
build a log
cabin. He called his home Indian Gardens Ranch,
but later he shortened it to Indian Gardens.

the call, and they came to raise horses and
ditches so they could plant crops, too and in
particular, they established orchards. During

Smithsonian Institute also deserves credit,

During the same year that Thompson settled in

Strangely, these names were totally appropriate

years, unnumbered families and individuals have

the case of T.C. and Sedona, it was T.C's
brother, Dorsey Ellsworth Schnebly, who
discovered Red Rock
seeking an ideal climate and atmosphere for his
health. According to the recorded testimony of
of T.C. and Sedona, his uncle was inspired by
the discovery of towering red rocks interfused
well as vast acreage surrounded by meandering,
clear Oak Creek.
Having purchased an 80-acre site from Frank
Owenby after traveling from Kansas in late 1901,
T.C. constructed a
with two stone fireplaces near the location of
present-day Los Abrigados Resort and Tlaquepaque
Crafts Village. And when residents of this small
settlement complained to T.C. about slow and
immediately filed an application for the
establishment of a post office.
Various reports indicate that T.C. suggested
calling the post office Schnebly Station, then
Red Rock Crossing and even
Station and most of these reports state that the
names were not accepted by the government

to fit on a cancellation stamp. Subsequently,
T.C's brother, Dorsey Ellsworth, thought of
name of T.C's
wife, Sedona. And after telling T.C. that in the
person there was a character that would stand
well as a
symbol for the
community, he turned to Sedona and said, You're
going to have a town named after you.
Postal officials approved the name Sedona, and
on June 26, 1902, the post office was in
business in the back of the
