Most Sedona hot air balloon companies start before sunrise, and this might be the most amazing way to start your wedding day. The ride is usually about 1.5 -3 hours long and ends with a champagne toast.

Arizona Hot Air Balloons offers a wedding option super unique and original. For example, you can even get married on the hot air balloon itself!
