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!

Gustav + Jackie, a New Mexico Engagement

If there’s one thing we adore about engagements besides capturing gorgeous, wildly romantic moments, its when we get to hang out with fun loving, silly-in-love couples. These cuties met in 2013 when they were both working as camp counselors. One holiday season Jackie made a “detour” from Colorado to Oklahoma to see Gustav on her way to visit family in Texas and the rest is history. In the fall of 2018, Gustav proposed to Jackie during a deep woods camping trip in Colorado.

While these lovers are from different places (Gustav is from Gallup, NM and Jackie is from Durango, CO), they have shared love for the Southwest and especially for green Chile! They’ll be moving to Seattle with their cat Pockets where Gustav will attend law school and where Jackie will continue her career as a theater educator.

Gustav and Jackie’s wedding is set to be a rustic, fun, southwestern party this June! We can’t hardly wait to capture these lovebirds in our favorite little Albuquerque spot, Los Poblanos Historic Inn and Organic Farm!
