Have you ever daydreamed about your very own Utopia? If I let my imagination run wild, it would be a space that incorporates elements of earth, water, and vast skies. A human experience with open minded souls, nutritious food, and conversations that expand our ways of thinking, feeling, and living.
We found this utopia at Symbiosis Gathering. Memories that make you laugh out loud and glow with bliss long after you have left. A place away from the default world, a liberating space of creativity, expression, and love.
Here are small snippets of me, my friends, and perfect beautiful strangers.
Big congratulations to Cristina and Nauman! What a radiant bride, bringing so much color and vibrancy into her civil ceremony, rocking her custom Woodstock Caftan! Wishing you both so much peace, love, and abundance in your journey!
This past year, we put our traveling shoes aside and stated planning for a wedding. We got married on the the weekend that also happened to be our 10 year anniversary- so it was quite serendipitous that we were able to plan our wedding date on the very same day we decided to call it “official” when we were just kids with puppy!
During our roadtrip through the U.S. our pit stops in Santa Fe, NM always stood out to us. Known as the Land of Enchantment…the land had such sacred energy and you can feel it as soon as you step foot on on NM. The creativity and culture of the locals are inspiring and contagious! We knew this was going to be the dot on the map where we wanted to hold our sacred vows.
We had no friends or family in Santa Fe. In fact, almost everyone had to take a week off to get there. We later found out flights into Santa Fe was very limited, and the best way to get there was to drive- and for our guests that meant across the country. This came with lots of stories and adventures before and after the wedding. Gotta love the inevitable adventure that comes with road trips!
Still in awe and filled with so much gratitude at the experience of having friends and family from everywhere come and be part of our special day. This was a very DIY wedding with everyone’s creativity at play.
Wedding planning, event design, photography, DJ-ing and even down to building the alter and dream catcher backdrop- was all done by friends. Everyone contributed to the beauty and uniqueness of our wedding day. Thank you thank you thank you! <3
