Featured on Green Wedding Shoes

Holy molars!  I am so excited to announce that our Earthy Modern Vow Renewal photo shoot was featured on Green Wedding Shoes!  I was honored for the opportunity to create a photo shoot that would take place at Ghost Ranch, the historic site where Georgia O’Keefe resided and found freedom to paint what she saw and felt.

Here is a little behind the scenes of the process:

I too was inspired by the magic of the air, the light, the dirt.  There is a spirituality that you feel when you step onto the property.  I chose an earthy palette of muted tones inspired by the striated rock formations found on the property.  Quartz and pink slat crystals brought texture to the shoot and circular motifs would be woven through all of the design elements.  I played with wood, earthenware ceramics and raw linens, wool fibers and leather.

I worked with Alan of SIWA Prints to create a silk screen invitation inspired from a watercolor I did.  I love the colors and the primal shapes and natural elements.

I love to show the initial inspiration sketches and the final image.  It is always surprising to me how true the final shoot is to the sketch!

Since the concept behind the shoot was a vow renewal, I wanted to focus on an alternative dessert other than a typical wedding cake.  I worked with Kakawa Chocolate House to provide incredible handmade chocolates and cocoa drinking elixers.   I wish I could have conveyed the taste through pictures.  The red chile and rose caramels were TO.DIE.FOR!

We had a small but mighty team as we chased light all over Ghost Ranch.  I am always thankful for the folks that allow me to explore my crazy visions and bring their incredible talents to the table to create pure magic!

One Spicy Couple!

Table number 1, table number two, table number three….that’s boring, huh?  Serrano Table!!! Poblano Table!!! Cayenne Table!!!  Muy caliente, no?  I love it when couples opt to name their reception tables NOT numbers, especially if when they name their tables after peppers!.  It’s brings a little interest, keeps it thematic, makes things spicy; it’s perfect for a Santa Fe wedding!

I had the pleasure of breaking out the watercolors and creating a fun suite of pepper table names and illustration, fun, right?

This lovely wedding took place at the Hotel St. Francis, a charming spot for intimate nuptials.  The ceremony was al fresco, on the patio and we dressed up the wooden gates with a simple ivory swag and lovely floral clusters created by Artichokes and Pomegranates.

The bride and groom were so stoked for the fabulous mariachi band…and I’ll admit, I was singing along too- I LOVE mariachis!
