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!

Fall Wedding Florals

The only thing more exciting than the beginning of October and the amazing season of fall, is all of the incredible floral color palettes that come out this time of the year.  From deep reds, to soft pops of orange, to dark berry details & classic creams, its hard to pick our fave floral combination for this season. We decided to showcase some of the most epic bouquets, killer ceremony florals, and downright incredible reception arrangements from a few of New Mexico’s most amazing florists.  We’re beyond ready for all the beauty to come this autumn!

Sachi - A Desert Bridal Session

As summer rolls on, we can't help but reminisce on one of our most beloved bridal sessions. Set against the gorgeous New Mexico desert, our bride/model Sachi was nothing short of an absolute Southwestern goddess. Bright florals and succulents sourced from a local backyard paired with an intricate wedding gown and a cake topped with a cactus heart made this golden hour vision something straight out of a dream. New Mexico is pure magic and this extremely special bridal session is the perfect tribute to our stunning home state.
