Wedding Inspo - Sheath Bridal Gowns

If there’s one current wedding trend that we can’t get enough of, its how popular sheath gowns have become over the past few years. Chic, modern, and effortlessly elegant, this style of dress can go from a backyard wedding to a Santa Fe Plaza wedding to an art gallery wedding to an elopement in the mountains! We love how this minimalist design can be paired with a simple jeweled belt or a lace overlay to make it even more gorgeous. Shout out to one of the most universally flattering designs out there, we can’t wait for more brides to shine in sheath gowns!

Wedding Inspo - Desert Florals

For our little team, being located in the gorgeous state of New Mexico means that we get to experience all of the amazing traditions, tastes, and beauty of the Southwest. One of our all time favorite details we get to see in both everyday life and on wedding days are desert florals. Our hearts are so happy that more and more of our brides and grooms are embracing some of our most beloved desert plants and flowers in both live florals and desert inspired details. From cacti to succulents to pampas grass to protea flowers, all of these hot climate beauties are something to behold. Check out some of our favorite desert florals for lots of Southwestern inspo!

Real Weddings - Southwestern Inspired Wedding Traditions

One of the best parts about living in the Southwest is all of the amazing culture we are surrounded by and get to experience every single day. And trust us when we say that we absolutely adore when couples incorporate some of our favorite Southwestern, and a few uniquely New Mexican, traditions into their wedding celebrations. Over the last few years some of our favorite highlights have been mariachi led parades around the historic Santa Fe Plaza, cactus shaped cookies (and pretty much cactus shaped everything), brightly colored florals, hand painted tiles, turquoise jewelry, bolo ties/southwestern inspired style, and, of course, Conchita the Tequila Donkey! We can’t wait to see how our future lovers will bring the flavor of our amazing state to their special day!
