Can’t Miss this Santa Fe Inspired Altar
by Katie Cohen December 13
Inspired by Southwestern landscapes and the divine culture of New Mexico, this Santa Fe styled shoot is a must-see for all you vintage lovers! Garey House served as the perfect venue for this whimsical Western dream, right here in the heart of Texas! Our jaws dropped at the intricate mosaic tile design painted on the three-tiered cake. The high-necked gown from Unbridaled featured fine fringe and textured boho details that signify the free sprit of this shoot. A mixture of yellow blooms, pampas grass and lush palms added a subtle hint of Tropicana to the warm fireplace display. The stylish flare of the plum florals convey a sense of wander, which contrasts perfectly with the delicate and airy blossoms scattered throughout the venue. A vintage-chic denim jacket completes the unique bridal look with dazzling diamond detail on the back. Scavenged Vintage Rentals transformed the altar into a dreamy destination to exchange vows with bohemian rugs and iconic metallic ottomans. The Navajo blanket and vivid turquoise jewelry incorporate the Native American lifestyle into this perfectly illustrated day. How stunning are the neutral tones mixed with a dazzle of gold? The color palette mimics the grandeur that chases the Santa Fe scenery, making the shoot come to life. What a great reminder that the blending of two individual styles and contrasting cultures can come to fruition with a little help from a great team! Cheers!

From the planner: “I actually went to Santa Fe for one of my bride-become-friends’ bachelorette weekend, and I was inspired by my trip. I also felt that what the florist contributed brought in an element of tropicana, which I felt symbolized the bringing together of two different cultures reflected in the bride and groom model, so desert and tropicana in the Hill Country!”
