They had purpose in every detail they incorporated into their day. I always encourage couples to really think about the “Why” when planning their wedding. It’s easy to get sucked into the traditions or other people’s expectations. But, this is YOUR day. So, what do you want it to look like? What is important to you as a couple? What defines your relationship? Kya and Kyle met at an adventurous outdoorsy camp. Hiking and spending time in the outdoors has always been a part of their relationship. It only makes sense that their Santa Fe wedding would reflect that.
For example, they had a 7-sided arch to represent God’s presence at their ceremony. Each of Kyle’s groomsmen carried one of those sides to symbolize that they needed to lean on others. They couldn’t make this wedding happen without the help of their friends and family, just as they couldn’t succeed in their marriage without that support. Kya and Kyle chose to incorporate earth tones to represent from dust we were created, and to dust we shall return. They also added jewel tones to symbolize that we are the crown of God’s creation. The two mile hike up to the gorgeous meadow where they had their ceremony also represented that we have to go through hard things to appreciate the beauty that comes afterwards. Truly, every piece they planned had a bigger purpose and meaning behind it, and it was so amazing.
A day they’ve dreamed about, planned tirelessly and intentionally…the moment where they commit their lives to each other. Whether that is in the mountains, a gorgeous venue, or even a family’s backyard – I’m so thankful to be a part of something so special.
