Venue Feature - Hacienda Doña Andrea de Santa Fe

Hidden high up in the mountains of Madrid, New Mexico with only a short drive to Santa Fe, Hacienda Doña Andrea de Santa Fe is quickly becoming a new favorite gem for local and destination couples. We first shot at this quirky, yet totally magical spot last spring with Brooklyn lovers Ethan and Sarah and couldn’t help but adore its unique, colorful accents set against its traditional Southwestern adobe building. Since then, we’ve captured two more sweet couples, Chris + Emma last fall and Geoff+ Jocelyn this summer, at this special little hacienda and ALWAYS notice something new about it. Whether its finding a hidden hallway to capture a few quick romantics in or taking a ton of detail shots of all of this property’s insane art, Hacienda Doña Andrea never fails to surprise us with its interesting beauty and personality. We’ll be back next season and we can’t wait to see what we discover at this amazing little venue.

Ethan + Sarah, a Hacienda Doña Andrea Wedding

Originally from two different midwest states, current New Yorkers Ethan and Sarah decided that after 9 years of love and happiness it was time to make it official with a destination wedding at the ever quaint, wildly Southwestern Hacienda Doña Andrea in Santa Fe. Ethan popped the question on a picturesque morning in Sterling, Utah where the couple had been staying while road tripping through a few Rocky Mountain states over Memorial Day weekend in 2017. These Brooklyn babes met through mutual friends and started out as roommates nearly a decade ago! Their wedding included friends and family from Ohio, Michigan, California, Colorado, and New York and was a super amazing, laid-back celebration! The ceremony featured a few really rad details including Ethan's cousin Maggie as the officiant and the newlyweds' recessional music as "Africa" by Toto. We are beyond stoked for these East Coast lovers, thank you for letting us be a part of your Southwestern love story!!
