Help me plan the best trip ever to the Grand Canyon?

I want to surprise my wife for her birthday next year with a trip to the southwest USA, a place she has always wanted to visit. I think the Grand Canyon is probably a solid choice, but I am open to other suggestions. My tentative plan is to visit Sedona as well, based on a friend's recommendation.
I am looking for recommendations for which airport to fly in/out of, places to stay, places to eat, things to do, and timeline suggestions for the whole trip. Some budget tips/pricing would be helpful too because I really don't know what to plan for. We like light hiking, casual good food, peace and quiet, breathtaking scenery, museums and gardens. I'm thinking of this trip more on the "relaxing" side of things than the "adventure" side of things. We will be coming from Atlanta, GA. I think we will probably want to be gone five days (no longer, because we'll be leaving our dogs for the first time.) This will be in early May.
I'm all ears! Any suggestions very much appreciated.
