Vendor Feature - Jessie Baca

Attention to details on wedding days are definitely one of our favorite things here at Alicia Lucia photography and we can’t help but gush over other wedding vendors who share that same love & passion. Our girl Jessie Baca has coordinated countless weddings and styled shoots here in New Mexico and we’ve been lucky enough to capture so many of her ultra creative, amazingly gorgeous ideas. From pampas grass adorned seating charts at the iconic Santa Fe Opera to the moodiest winter wedding table arrangements at Los Poblanos to incredible Spanish inspired hacienda weddings in the heart of Santa Fe, there isn’t any creation of Jessie’s doing that we haven’t fallen in love with at first sight. We love this talented lady and her endless passion for all things southwestern and beautiful!!!

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!
