Emily + Garett | Rancho de Chavez Santa Fe Wedding

This styled wedding shoot at Rancho de Chavez Santa Fe will forever and ever be one of my favorites. Why? Because it was designed and executed by one of my absolutely favorite wedding designers: Orange September, an event company. Vicki and Jerry took influence from the venue and from New Mexico’s history in their design, and this is 100% the perfect inspiration for your Santa Fe wedding!

We finished up the portraits in a scenic New Mexican setting with the sun setting behind us, surrounded by bronze Conquistador statues that pay homage to New Mexico’s history and lend back to our Spanish inspiration for this shoot.

Here’s what Vicki of Orange September had to say about her design choices!

With inspiration garnered from the customary bridal traditions of Spain, this modern Spanish-styled wedding showcases a pristine private homestead and brand new wedding venue just south of Santa Fe. Rancho de Chavez is hedged by the Ortiz Mountains to the east and Cabezon Peak to the west. Boasting plenty of rustic charm and showcasing the majestic beauty of the southwest, it was the ideal setting for this photoshoot.

Color Palette

The primary colors of this shoot, in keeping with its inspiration, were black and red. Accents of gold, white, and ivory added to the air of elegance and helped modernize the traditional palette.

Bridal Look

The bride posing for this photoshoot wore a gorgeous black silk dress with an accompanying lace veil. In Spain, this bridal attire is common, representing the “Til Death Do Us Part” promise.

At the Dinner Table

The head table at Spanish weddings is usually set to accommodate 6 people. In this styled shoot, the table was instead set for 8 to include the bride and groom’s best friends. The chairs at the table were decorated with white lace covers—a detail that lent the perfect touch of daintiness to the scene.

Small handwritten signs, displaying Spanish phrases expressing love, were placed at each table setting. These were reminders of the purpose of all weddings: to regard, profess, and celebrate love.
