    Mystical Styled Shoot

    Last month with partnered up with some of our favorite Las Cruces creatives to bring you this magical styled shoot. Bianca dn Anthony at Southwest Creative Co. did an amazing job capturing every detail. We envisioned a delicate vintage bride surrounded with greenery and lavender tones centered in the middle of a pecan tree farm. That is exactly what we got. Below you can find all the details on this wonderful collaboration.

    This clear framed welcome sign was made by Letter and Such.

    This beautiful Rebecca Ingram gown features an elbow length sleeve and bateau neckline. Around the waist is a bead and Swarovski belt that separates the lace bodice from the tulle skirt overlay, completing this vintage inspired gown.

    We styled our groom in a navy blue pant from Jim’s Formal Wear (Michael Kors Ultra Slim Suit). We paired it with a classic white button up, suspenders, brown shoes, and a fun polkadot bow tie.

    To top off his look, we added a perfectly, hand-crafted boutineer made by Calhoun Flower Farms.

    Las Cruces is known for its endless acres of pecan farms. We had the pleasure to shoot on a locally owned pecan farm. Many thank yous to the Salopek family. The pecan trees provided a mystical look like no other.

         

    We wanted to keep the decor super simple. Our goal was to add to the natural beauty surrounding us. We loved the combination of our clear orbs with the geometric shapes. The wooden arch was provided by our sister company Elegant Events and Invitations and it is available for rental.

    We LOVE edible party favors. In fact, we encourage our brides to opt for them. We believe they are more cost efficient, they provide less waste, and I mean, who doesn’t love edible goodies? Check out these beautiful sugar cookies made by Cara at Cara’s Creations.

     

    Can we talk about these perfectly packaged Cinnamon Praline Pecans? These cuties are brought to you by Legacy Pecans. If you want New Mexico true party favors, this is definitely the way to go. Make sure to check out their new location: 2355 Calle de Guadalupe on the Mesilla Plaza, right next to Double Eagle.

    Pictures do not do this gorgeous bouquet justice. Hand-crafted and grown by the amazing ladies at Calhoun Flower Farm

     You’re probably wondering what kind of florals and greens go in to making this flower magic. This one specifically contains the following: {Greens} Sage, salt cedar, pecan leaves, smoketree bush. {Floral} Artichoke and Kale (Yes, veggies can be beautiful too) dahlia, lisianthus, zinnia, and chocolate sunflowers. Thank you to the ladies at Calhoun Flower Farms for the flower knowledge.

    Invitations were custom made by our sister company Elegant Events & Invitations. Every order is custom and made to our client’s liking.

    Custom, handwritten calligraphy was done by Adriana at Letters and Such. This is a beautiful, personal touch on any invitation.

    This shoot was so much fun to prepare for. It came together so effortlessly and we are fortunate enough to be surrounded by beautiful individuals that are not afraid to portray their talents in a collaborative matter. Thank you to everyone that contributed their time and efforts into bringing together this mystical shoot.
