You’ve picked up some new skills like gardening, yoga, watercoloring, and breaking the record for “most trips to the refrigerator in one day”, or maybe that’s just us. But nonetheless, you’ve used this downtime to do all of the things you never had time to do, because let’s face it, normal every day life gets busy. Here at Wedding Collective, we’re thankful that we get this extra time to find new and exciting ways to inspire you + the entire local wedding community.
In fact, we’ve pulled together something special for you today – the first vendors you should reach out to as you plan your New Mexico wedding from home during quarantine! We even made you a downloadable PDF guide that you can use as you embark on your planning journey – yay, free stuff! Now that businesses are slowly starting to re-open, it’s the perfect time to think about your wedding and all of the incredible vendors that will make it happen. Despite some storefronts being closed, vendors are still working hard to plan local weddings and they want to hear from inspired engaged couples like you.

Since it’s springtime, and we’re absolutely LOVING the gorgeous outdoors, we are featuring Casa Perea Art Space, LLC as one of your many stunning ceremony venue options. With elegant garden vibes and stunning lush greens, this romantic spot will create memories that last forever.
This venue is a treasure both in its beauty and historical value to this community. From the office gals to the grounds keeper, the care and service over our wedding event was impeccable, professional and most importantly, personal. Their flexibility is a blessing during sometimes stressful decisions.– Lisa B.

The photographer is going to freeze your beautiful moments in time, so it’s important that you find the one that speaks to your heart. We’re obsessing over one of our newest members, DBK Photography, and her jaw-dropping work.
For the couple who intends to laugh their faces off together all day, every day.
5. Find a Cinematographer

I can’t say enough how incredible they are! They captured every moment from our engagement to our wedding day! Jar & Crys invest themselves not only with their talent but with their heart.
