New Mexico Wedding from Keely Thorne + Andrea Soorikian
April 28, 2011

This next, totally adorbs wedding, captured by the talented Chris Bailey Photography literally has us tickled pink. Keely Thorne Events travelled to New Mexico with our couple, and we're so happy she did. Keely's team worked with Andrea Soorikian Design to create a wedding filled to the brim with absolutely peachy keen details. We've died and gone to heaven - or at least the lush florals have us thinking so. I swear, you can almost smell their sweet scent right through your computer screen. When you've taken in all you can here, pop into the gallery - there's more!

From the bride ... Patrick and I met 2 years ago, the night he told me he was going to marry me. Little did I know, he was right. I had always wanted a small wedding; I don’t like to be in the spotlight so I only wanted close friends and family. Patrick and I had no trouble deciding where we wanted to have the wedding - my parents rented a house in Santa Fe for the month of July and we instantly decided to have our wedding there.

The David Webb signed diamond and sapphire necklace that was passed down to me by me great grandmother was my biggest inspiration for the wedding. It not only provided the canvas for our wedding but was the perfect accessory for my wedding day ensemble. I majored in Art History and used Georgia O’Keefe’s sunset paintings as an inspiration for my bridesmaids dresses and flowers.  I wanted to reflect the beautiful coral and peach skies that O’Keefe painted by incorporating different shades of pink, orange and peach in our wedding.

This perfect wedding weekend would have never occurred if not for for Keely Thorne and her amazing team. She made the entire weekend flow with complete perfection; in fact, I didn’t have a worry in the world on my wedding day because Keely was always two steps ahead of what we might need or problem solving so I didn’t have to! Keely was so supportive and understanding at every moment of the planning process and I cannot thank her enough for listening to my thoughts and ideas and then making each and every one of them come to life!
