I have been to New Mexico several times, and I have always found beauty and a certain level of serenity when I visit there. I think it's one of those states that go unnoticed. There is so much to see from the Mountains up in Taos where you feel like you're in Northern CA, to the beautiful natural red rock Jemez Mountains filled with several natural hot springs, where soaking mountain-side is a real life thing you can do there! The mix of culture is very present and something truly worth experiencing.

I have always wanted to do a styled shoot, wedding inspiration photo shoot, or well, duh a wedding there! So when planning a trip to visit my ill Grandmother and my Mom who currently reside down there, I decided one week out, that I was going to contact some talented wedding pros down in New Mexico to see if they would be down to throw together a last-minute wedding inspiration photo shoot with me. And guess what!? We pulled it off!

With a little help from my Minnesota friends at The White Room Mpls, I flew down carrying along the most beautiful Lili Hod Capri Gown; it's part of her Dreams 2017 Collection, and it's a definite show stopper. Oh and just to talk about carrying a bridal gown on an airplane for a minute, it's a bit chaotic, and yes, I did yell at a woman "hey, that's a wedding dress, do not throw your luggage on top of it." Maybe this is why my friends trust me with their beautiful gowns, because, they know I have no problem yelling at strangers. Haha.

Jessica Wonders Events is a Minnesota based Destination Wedding & Event Planning and Floral Design Company. We offer event services internationally! Hiring an event planner to work alongside you for a destination event is a huge component to the success of that event. We have heard the horror stories of couples who have hired the "hotel event planner" or a company in the country of their international destination event, where they never heard from them, and everything imaginable went wrong on their big day. Our past client experiences, and personal touch where we take the time to get to know you and what's important to you on your big day is what makes all the difference for us. You can also count on always being able to stay in communication with us as we only book a limited number of events per year, and one event per weekend, so that all of our attention is on you and your event-- only!!
