New Mexico Styled Shoot
I have been inspired for many years by Hygge [Hoo-ga] the Danish concept of coziness and contentment free of stress and frustration. Think soft candlelight, good food, and good friends! It is this feeling of contentment and warmth that a great wedding just exudes. Your soon to be spouse is your happy place and a wedding is one of the few times where you are inviting your friends and family to celebrate the warm fuzzy feelings you have about the love of your life. As I developed the design I worked with a color scheme of mustard yellow, cream and green to pay homage to our outdoor location in the beautiful Bosque of Albuquerque, NM. I really love incorporating vintage elements because of their ability to play on the feeling of home so I opted for vintage tablewares and a vintage settee. Throughout the planning process, I always checked back to ask myself is this cozy, is this welcoming, is this somewhere I would want to relax? Any guest would love to be greeted by a homemade pie on vintage dishes, delicious finger foods to snack on and soft candlelight. This vision was brought to life by so many talented people who really made this Hygge vision come to life beautifully.
