The Georgia O’Keeffe Museum provided the perfect backdrop for Galia and Mike's wedding ceremony.  Mike carefully constructed the chuppah which was shaded by a glorious apricot tree.  He used bird finials to keep within the woodsy “Love Bird” motif.  Galia’s bouquet was made of Succulents, Lambs Ear, Calla Lilies, Cymbidium Orchids, Dusty Miller and Gardenias, which smelled heavenly! We served Agave sparkling sodas with adorable stripey straws and Gruet Rosé, a local New Mexican favorite.  After the ceremony the couple paraded through the Plaza to the reception location, led by the talented musicians of Savor.  Mike also designed the invitation suite, which  was printed on a Kraft paper stock and tied the entire look together.  Instead of a traditional guest book, Galia and Mike had their guests sign a Georgia O’Keeffe Poppies poster that they framed and have hanging in their home.  We also paid homage to Ms. O’Keeffe, by having framed black and white images of her tucked in the bookcases at the Anasazi Library where the dinner was held. The tables were dotted with votives wrapped in Kraft paper and suede cord, small birch log planters and rustic floral arrangements in birch containers. The dark wood furnishings and candlelit glow created a divine ambiance for great food and fine conversation.
