We had the honor of capturing Katie and Mike’s elegant wedding at the beautiful Bishops Lodge in Santa Fe, NM, and it was truly a stunning day. Katie grew up spending time in Santa Fe with her family, so when Mike said he liked the idea of a destination wedding that would provide an experience for their guests, she knew instantly that Santa Fe would be the perfect place! She has so many favorite childhood memories in The City Different, and now they had an opportunity to make new memories with each other, families, and friends.
When the day finally came, it was a sight to behold. Katie wore a stunning Ines Di Santo dress that she had sent to Italy to be hand painted in Milan! Katie and Mike filled their ceremony with elegant white and ivory flowers with kisses of gold, blush, celadon, lavender and New Mexico sky blue. The ceremony took place on the steps to enter the lobby of the hotel, a spot that was unique to just Katie and Mike’s wedding alone. Following the ceremony, guests enjoyed hors devours and cocktails on the patio before entering the sail cloth tent, lined with twinkle lights and stunning flowers. Linens of different textures and shades of blue graced the tables while everyone found their seats by the most beautiful escort card display designed by Bello and Blue and Bell’INVITO.
After dinner, everyone joined the couple for a cake cutting, where Katie surprised Mike with the fact that they were getting another puppy! Adorable figurines of their dogs and the new puppy were featured on the beautiful cake. Inside the ballroom, everyone joined the couple for a night of partying while the band Big Blast and the Party Masters made sure to keep the dance floor full.
All in all, we loved getting to be apart of this stunning wedding, and we hope Katie and Mike have many amazing memories in the future!
