Emily + Jamie – October 2015
May 24, 2019
Traveling all the way from Dallas, Emily & Jamie came to Las Cruces looking for a Moroccan themed wedding. White Sands National Monument was the perfect place to create their colorful day. This non-traditional wedding was joyful and refreshing, we had a blast the entire day!
October in Southern New Mexico is still warm and sunny, so guests were provided with sunglasses to view the ceremony with ease. What a fun and stylish wedding favor!
The wedding included bright colors such as fuchsia, with splashes of natural greens. These colors flowed seamlessly with Emily’s champagne dress. We loved how this palette made a statement with the setting at White Sands, a unique look that brings out the light-hearted personalities these two share!
The reception followed shortly after the ceremony, as all the guests were shuttled back to Hotel Encanto. They also got a wonderful surprise, belly dancers!
