Santa Fe Real Wedding

Santa Fe Botanical Garden Wedding // Amy & Patrick

February 7, 2017

By Rocky Mountain Bride

A snippet about the wedding from the bride, Amy: We decided to get married in Santa Fe, NM after falling in love with the city during our first vacation as a couple. Santa Fe has such a rich, vibrant culture and is such a lovely little town that so many of our friends and family had not yet experienced. We knew we wanted to keep our wedding small and intimate while having a destination where guests could easily be entertained, and Santa Fe checked all of those boxes for us. We ended up picking the Santa Fe Botanical Garden as our ceremony site after seeing the beautiful pictures and communicating with the staff. I knew I wanted to get married in an outdoor ceremony and I couldn't imagine a more beautiful place than a botanical garden! It was monsoon season in Santa Fe so everything was incredibly lush and in full bloom. We had our ceremony followed by a cocktail hour in the garden which gave guests the chance to explore the beautiful gardens and sculpture park.  We transitioned across the street to the International Museum of Folk Art for our reception where we were able to leave a gallery wing open for our guests to enjoy. We danced the night away in the museum atrium, glow stick clad and over the moon.  

My favorite part of the day was sneaking away with my husband for pictures and having a chance to look back on our guests enjoying themselves. It really is unbelievable to see all these friends and family travel and come together to celebrate your love for one another. Truly magical!
