Valerie and Harrison were married last weekend in the mountains of downtown Santa Fe, NM and with the festive aura of Christmas, their wedding day was an embodiment of pure elegance and romance.
Valerie loves all things vintage, and opted for the traditional Christmas colors of red and cream but added some pink touches here and there. Her flowers had an architectural design with roses and orchids and really stood out against her long white gloves. Valerie wore a classic mikado dress with a lustrous sheen to it. It was perfectly fit with a large bow in the back that also matched the bow on the welcome sign and other elements throughout the wedding.
The couple were married in the evening by candlelight after the sun had set. They exchanging handwritten vows as the snowflakes glistened on the grounds outside the historic Loretto Chapel, an architectural gem exuding an aura of grace and spirituality. The church really enhanced the significance of their commitment.
Following the heartfelt ceremony, Valerie and Harrison embarked on a dreamy stroll led by a mariachi band through Downtown Santa Fe. They immersed in the mesmerizing ambiance created by the trees adorned with twinkling Christmas lights before arriving at their reception. While the guests sipped champagne and hot cider, others took polaroids in front of a huge Christmas wreath and signed vintage Christmas cards. Their wedding encapsulated the essence of love amidst the magical embrace of the winter season, radiating warmth and joy that resonated with all who attended.
We truly enjoy spending time with Valerie and Harrison. We wish you the best of luck in the new year and wish for many years of happiness to come.
