We are each of us angels with only one wing. 

And we can only fly embracing each other.

-Luciano De Crescenzo

Andrea wrote the most beautiful vows for our wedding ceremony. She learned "our story," and cared so deeply about what we had been through to find each other. Andrea was the best minister for our celebration of love and marriage equality. Thank you! ˜Alise & Yhaddie, November 2016  

Thank you again for officiating our wedding. It was a pleasure to work with you. ˜Anna & Nick, September 2016

Santa Fe is a world-class destination city, offering unlimited wedding options.

Nestled in the mountains of northern New Mexico, Santa Fe is the perfect place for your wedding. Whether you live locally or will travel to the "City Different" for your special day, you and your guests will long remember how this one-of-a-kind city made your wedding perfectly magical!

Four hundred years old and New Mexico's state capital, Santa Fe has a rich cultural history of Native American, Spanish, Mexican and Anglo peoples. Today, an eclectic mix make their home here - artists, writers, adventurists, nature lovers, environmentalists, spiritual seekers, wild west cowgals and cowboys, and the descendants of the city's multicultural settlers. Santa Fe's rich and diverse history reveals itself in the city's food, music, art, architecture, fiestas and seasonal traditions from Zozobra, to the Christmas Eve farolito walk, and of course the world-class Balloon Fiesta in Albuquerque. This history, pulsating in a breathtaking mountain landscape, is yours to delight in.
