This at-home wedding in New Mexico honored the spirit, energy, and charisma of the West through every detail.
Think at-home weddings are typically traditional? Not for this bride and groom. Inspired by the Southwest, this couple’s celebrations showcased everything from handmade Oaxacan candles to authentic Native American turquoise. Bursting with color at the home of the bride’s parents, this wedding honored the spirit, energy, and charisma of the West.
Make It Personal
“This wedding was so stunning in person,” says Zara Southard of Maggie’s Cakes. “The wedding cake itself was a carrot cake — simple and sweet — which works great with the naked cake look. The groom’s cake was a Mexican cinnamon chocolate with a cinnamon caramel piñon buttercream frosting. What I like to do is add little personal touches. Since the groom is a massive Dallas Cowboys fan, we hung little Cowboys flags in the doorway of his Adobe cake.”
Embracing New Mexico’s iconic regional style, Madeleine incorporated pops of color, vintage elements, and authentic Native American jewelry wherever possible.
