Julia and Casey’s Taos, New Mexico Wedding

Julia and Casey’s summer wedding in Taos, New Mexico was made out of dreams come true. In spite of a global pandemic, each family member and friend in attendance exercised immense caution out of love for the couple. This was a beautiful situation for our wedding photographers, as they were able to capture many incomparable tender moments. For example, Julia’s first look with her father reminded us of a Harper Lee quote: “She did not stand alone, but what stood behind her, the most potent moral force in her life, was the love of her father.” And in that moment, Julia’s father spilled his love and drank his pride for her. This breathtaking and truly genuine moment will stick with us forever. Shash the German Shepherd gleefully trotted around her humans in support and love. She wore a flower crown of her own (as a collar) and greeted everyone with excitement – what a perfect hostess she was! Though the day started off sunny, hot, and bright, the rain came to quench the desert’s thirst. The sagebrush quivered in anticipation and the rainclouds dressed the Sangre de Christos in a veil of their own. The stunning backdrop added drama to Julia and Casey’s day; New Mexico monsoons are brief, unpredictable, and absolutely beautiful. Julia and Casey shared tender love for each other as they danced in the rural roads, with Julia’s turquoise sash keeping the cold off her skin and dancing in the petrichor to a beat of its own. The smell of the rain-rinsed stucco walls lingers in our memory as we look at the photos of Julia posed against them. This dreamlike wedding offered other gems we’ll likely never forget – Julia’s silver and turquoise earrings, the fun-loving friends and family, crackling ristras in the summer heat, the ruffled chiffon table runner adorned with white rose petals – but we especially remember everything falling into place for Julia and Casey as the day ended in sunbeams peeking out of the rainclouds to join the celebration and add a bit more colored light of its own. Additional thanks go to Corazon Events who worked tirelessly and helped make sure everything was perfect for Julia and Casey.

Adrian and Peter, Santa Fe Elopement

Summertime weddings in Santa Fe are sun-kissed and sing of romance. Adrian and Peter’s wedding added prominent modern touches and breathed fresh life into the ancient walls of the Loretto Chapel. Between Adrian’s lively jumpsuit hybrid, Peter’s prominent blue jacket, and their uniquely belted cake, this novel wedding compares to none other.
The wildflower centerpieces kissed their reception with class and delicacy, and sweet four legged friend trotted into our hearts wearing a white tutu!
We’ll always remember Adrian and Peter for their affectionate interactions and for the laughter they shared in the old Santa Fe Plaza.

Amber and Joe’s Santa Fe, New Mexico Wedding

Amber and Joe’s Santa Fe wedding was so whimsical. Each detail was unique and representative of this sweet couple. The southwest day was still and hot; dressed-up and ready to watch Amber and Joe marry. Beauty radiated throughout—rippling through Amber’s veil, glistening in her flawless jewelry, and contrasting against stucco and storm-cloud-hued doors. Unconditionally supporting Amber were four lovely ladies in mesa pink and wild sage green. The messy elegance of nude, blushing garden roses touched every element of this southwestern wedding, neatly tying up any loose ends. Small yet strong details breathed life into this magical day, and though Amber’s necklace winked with the grace of Cinderella’s stagecoach, she remained a princess at the stroke of midnight. Scroll through their wedding photos below to see the wrought iron gates open, hear the ancient bells ring, and watch Amber and Joe dance into happily ever after.
