From Callie Manion PhotographyI am so excited to share with you this intimate spring wedding that took place overlooking the gorgeous landscape of Santa Fe, New Mexico!

Delanie & Brent are some of the sweetest people I’ve met and their wedding day was full of love, romance, and small, yet significant details. They knew all along that they wanted to have a very small ceremony and were so happy to have only their closest family and friends watch as they—Delanie, Brent, and their son Hudson—were united as a family at last.

I was so touched by all the thought that went into the planning of their wedding, even though they had a very short engagement. More than anything, Brent & Delanie really wanted the day to have meaning. They chose Santa Fe for the location because the city is really meaningful to the groom’s family, and instead of renting out an unknown location, they used a close family friend’s property up in the mountains for the event! Delanie honored her family by wearing jewelry passed down to her from her mother and grandmother, and carried her grandmother’s handkerchief with her throughout the day.

The intimate moments when Delanie was getting ready were made even more special by her own mother doing her makeup & hair. The bond they share is really sweet and I love how involved her mom was on the wedding day! Delanie also asked her to put on her shoes and wedding dress for her, while her maid of honor secured her gorgeous Twigs & Honey hair piece in her hair. Delanie made such a gorgeous bride in her BHLDN wedding dress and Betsey Johnson heels!

One of my favorite parts of the day was Delanie & Brent’s First Look. Their reactions were so pure and genuine as they read love letters to each other, standing back to back, before turning for the reveal. It was such a special moment for the two of them to be alone, hold hands, and pray together, before the ceremony took place.

We took their bride & groom portraits immediately following the First Look. The backdrop was truly stunning! And Delanie & Brent wanted the day to be significant for their son, Hudson, as well, and they made sure to have their portraits involve him too!

Their ceremony was breathtaking, overlooking the gorgeous landscape of Santa Fe! The floral arrangements were by Leslie of Everly Alaine Florals, and as usual she absolutely knocked it out of the park. Delanie wanted really lush arrangements with lots of whites, creams, and greenery. Leslie’s arrangements were stunning and brought so much beauty to this small and intimate affair! And because the wedding took place high up in the mountains of Santa Fe, the air was still a bit chilly during their ceremony. The bride & groom thought ahead and left each guest with a cozy lap blanket to use during the ceremony, which also doubled as the most beautiful (and useful!) favors!

After the ceremony ended, the guests were able to join the happy couple inside for the most romantic and cozy dinner. Lit by candlelight, the guests enjoyed exchanging stories about the couple and talking late into the night.

When asked to give some words about her wedding, Delanie noted, “We have overcome so much together. Our story is truly about resilience and never giving up on love. Hudson is our greatest blessing and this marriage is not just a two person love story–but we really are most excited about giving roots to our family.”
