Mark + Elna
are getting married!
We met through friends in the East Village. Mark was recently single and it was his first night out. We “fell in love in a hopeless place.” So much so that for the first few months of our relationship we genuinely identified with the Rihanna song. During our first cab ride together the driver asked how long we’d been married. When we said we’d recently met, he told us we should get married and have kids. Four years later we’re proving him right…minus the kids.
From the beginning we’ve been a team. “Team banana!” that’s what we call it. We spend most of our time bantering or talking about how much we like Carlos, our dog. We like to do obvious things couples like so we won’t bore you with that. In fact, I feel like if you’re coming to our wedding you know us well enough already, so I’ll end here: we love each other a lot, we’re getting married!

Travel & Accommodations



We fell in love with the wedding venue and the hotel. We also loved the fun wedding weekend it would create if everyone stayed at a hotel in Old Town Scottsdale and then we headed up to the San Tan Mountains for the wedding and reception. If coming from out of state, the only time you will need to have car transportation is to and from the airport and if you decide to visit an attraction outside of Old Town. Once at the hotel, you can walk downtown and explore Old Town Scottsdale. There will be a coach bus provided to and from the wedding venue in Queen Creek, AZ on Saturday May 7th, pickup at The Saguaro Hotel at 3:45pm. The airport is about 20 minutes from the hotel. The airport also has rental cars available.
If driving to the venue please provide ample time, it's an hour drive from the airport and/or hotel. 
We have reserved a room block at The Saguaro Hotel for May 6th-8th. This hotel has a very fun and funky vibe, multiple pools, a great Mexican restaurant, and is right in the heart of Old Town Scottsdale. Our room rate is $149 (plus tax) a night with a waived resort fee. Please make sure to book at this link  with the code: 1605BAKERS_001 or call the number listed and let them know you are with the Baker Sikes Wedding. Our group rate is valid if booked before 4/15/16. 
If you prefer to stay closer to the wedding venue there are houses available on airbnb and vrbo in Queen Creek, AZ
*The Saguaro Hotel is also offering our group rate for guests wishing to come earlier than Friday or extend their trip beyondSunday. The group rate for pre and post room block nights are based upon the hotel's availability and may only be booked by calling the hotel directly at the number listed. 
For anyone arriving in the Scottsdale vicinity on Friday, May 6th (day before our wedding) we'll be having a casual get together at The Saguaro Hotel pool in downtown Scottsdale. Come find us there!
