Katy and Ben booked Santa Fe as the site for their designation wedding sight unseen! I was shocked at the level of trust and blind faith, but boy, did it work out. When Katy said, we LOVE to travel and LOVE Spain and LOVE tapas, I knew exactly what we would do! They entrusted me to put together a beautiful wedding at the Hacienda Corta Caro, a beautiful private home nestled in the Santa Fe foothills.
Pigment and Parchment set the tone beautifully with their whimsical and colorful invite suite and the print that followed suit for the rest of the wedding.
We enlisted the help of La Boca, a local Spanish tapas restaurant to create a menu circling around the main course of paella which was cooked in front of guests as they entered the dining space. Bountiful cheese boards with cured meats and marinated olives decorated the tables.
Melissa of Renegade Floral knocked the flowers out of the park, with lush textural looks that we set on ceramic tiles and colorful Shantung linens. Colored glass goblets and terra cotta salt and pepper cellars from RUST Vintage, brought even more magic to the table!
In addition to a Red Chile-Cinnamon-Chocolate cake, guests were invited to roast their own gourmet s’mores to satisfy any sweet teeth. The S’more Pit, outfitted fire pits and provided the most delectable ‘mallow flavors!
To compete our Spanish these, we capped the evening off with an incredible flamenco performance. I have never seen so much passion conveyed in a dance performance like this one. It truly captivated the heart of the wedding guests!

Howdy! I am finally starting to see the light after THE busiest part of wedding season. I have so many spectacular things to share, I’m dying to sit down and comb through it all! But, as a little tease, here are a few snapshots, mostly from my Instagram account that will give you a glimpse into my day to day:
Living dangerously and building martini towers.
Working with photo ninja, Gia Canali…she’s the one under the hood shooting 4×5 polaroids…so rad!
Getting people sent off in style…vintage benz
Getting in some yoga time with the Lululemon gang. Did you know they offer free yoga in the park?
Trying hard not to shove all the macarons in my face at once.
Oh, just hanging out with the deer behind my studio.
Cruised up to the AHA Fest at the Railyard and boy, was that a good time. Hip artists, rockin’ bands, food trucks…it almost felt like Santa Fe was a big city!
DJ’ing….not really, I was just listening!
Getting down on some cocktail hour chalkboard script….love those stripey straws too.
Getting folks married the artsy way….had the pleasure of hosting at event at the Selby Fleetwood Gallery on Canyon Road.
