Of course, a plan A, plan B, and C were well in place, so it was a matter of making an educated call. Our planning team sprung into action, making sure every detail was managed perfectly with this shift in the plan. We were able to keep the ceremony and cocktail reception outdoors and ushered the guests indoors for the reception just after sunset. The ballroom was set for a lovely dinner and a rocking party band. Guests were none the wiser that this wasn’t the original plan! Enjoy their desert chic soiree below!

The Four Seasons in Santa Fe proved to be the perfect backdrop for Natalie and Chris’ wedding rain or shine! Meeting Natalie, we knew she wanted a relaxed and gorgeous setting, colorful floral, and a property where the ceremony and reception could both take place. This property was truly a one-stop destination in a stunning natural landscape. On the wedding day, rain clouds threatened our original all outdoor celebration. Bad weather can, no doubt, ruin a couples vision for their perfect day!

“Julian is a dream to work with.”

-Natalie, bride

“He knows how to handle every situation with ease, confidence, and respect. It was wonderful from start to finish. I’ll never forget Julian coming in to the bridal suite to explain that the wrong dance floor had been delivered. The way he shared this information was not stress elevating because he was calm and collected and at the end of the day, I knew he would handle it.
