Aztec Desert Wedding Inspiration

aztec inspired wedding

The minimalist beauty of the New Mexico desert sets the tone for today’s lovely aztec-inspired styled shoot, photographed by Brumley + Wells and styled by Celeste Greene. Using many locally salvaged details, like the hand-beaded hair barrette and quirky longhorn tie clip, and bringing in a few beautiful vintage pieces from Heirlooms, the team was able to evoke a feel that was not only raw + organic, but also elegant + intentional. Here’s a bit more about the setting from Annie of Brumley + Wells:

The Southwestern desert is often overlooked in the hunt for a wedding setting. But what is often viewed as desolate is actually full to the brim with style and elegance. We love the clean and bright backdrop of the simple landscape, the interesting textures of cracked mud, and blues and golds of sage and wild grasses…

  1. this is soo awesome. So editorial. Love the setting decor. Basically I love everything about this shoot. Great job!

  2. I love this styled shoot, it’s bohemian and carefree but bursting with a unique sense of style that couldn’t recreated anywhere other than the desert! And that hand-beaded hair accessory is stunning too
