Valentina and Mike wanted our wedding to encompass all they love about New Mexico. With the beautiful backdrop of La Mesita Ranch in Santa Fe, this amazing couple created a day that was inspired by Southwestern details along with gorgeous smoke clouds of color. Valentina and Mike were passionate about making a day that was beautiful, and deeply personal. They planned every aspect of the wedding together and made sure to add personalized and unique details such as hand-sanding and stamping their Mexican tile favors. Prior to their wedding day, the couple hiked the NM desert to pick prickly pears from cactus to make their signature margarita mix. The ceremony was very brief but personal. The bride and groom’s fathers played guitar to a song written specially for the couple. The grandmother’s on both sides were appointed “flower-feather girls” which delighted family members in attendance. We absolutely loved being a part of Valentina and Mike’s amazing day!
Ileana and Benjamin couldn’t have picked a more charming, spiritual place to exchange i-do’s. Situated in the foothills of the Sangre de Cristo Mountains, the village of Chimayó, New Mexico is just 40 minutes from Santa Fe. Friends and family gathered at one of Chimayó’s most famous landmarks, Rancho De Chimayo to celebrate. We coudn’t stop snapping photos of this beautiful couple with the amazing backdrops we kept finding all around!
We love outdoor weddings, and Jennifer and Pablo’s Santa Fe nuptials is no exception. There is not a city that can compare to Santa Fe and La Posada de Santa Fe is the only resort located in the midst of it all downtown. Everywhere we turned, picturesque, tranquil moments happened. The day was magical, romance was intensified and this wedding bottled up those sentiments and infused them with a sense of joy you can literally feel looking at their photos. We were so lucky to be a part of their beautiful day!
