It’s alright to feel freaked out about that! Which part of Northern AZ/Coconino will you be getting married? I got married right outside of Flagstaff and it *is* a beautiful place. My husband is out there right now working on the Wallow fire (the huge one burning on the east side of the state) & from what I gather it’s a real b*tch right now. I doubt it will reach the Coconino area of the state, but I also doubt that it will be contained by the time you have your wedding. It will probably just be smoky in that area of AZ.

My advice – concentrate on those seating charts 🙂 You’ll definitely need them and I can tell you from experience, dwelling over it won’t make you feel any more sane. Although I’m right there with you hoping the forests will all shut down to campers for a while. Did you know that fire was supposidly started by a campfire that wasn’t tended to properly?! Uuuugh.

Thanks for your concern about my husband – he’s safe though and I think he enjoys the adventure aspect of these things. Little America is a gorgeous venue! The Wallow Fire is – literally – a hot mess, but it definitely will not reach Flagstaff or probably even get any farther west than it already is (my husband says the winds are pushing it east). You can assure your traveling guests that the roads should all be open by the end of the month (unless maybe they’re trying to come in from the east through the White Mountains). Have a lovely wedding day! Ah – I love the Flagstaff area!
