Sunset Terrace Wedding in Santa Fe

Kristen and Bill’s love story began on a casual San Francisco afternoon. Kristen had decided to meet her friends for a drink after work, and Bill was at the same bar hosting an out-of-town friend. These two strangers locked eyes that day and never looked back.

Fast forward several years, one crisp San Francisco night, Kristen and Bill went out to dinner to celebrate their decade-long love at their favorite restaurant, A16. Bill had reserved the private atrium and had arranged a special menu consisting of Kristen’s all-time favorite dishes. She had no idea their celebration was about to become an even bigger one. Right before the dessert course, and with emotion in his eyes, Bill got down on one knee and proposed. Moments after the staff came in with bubbly and celebrated with the couple. As she shared with us, “It was quite a whirlwind. I am not even sure I remember what he said.” Suffice it say, she said, “Yes.”

As for their wedding day, the couple said their vows in front of 10 guests in a sunset ceremony on the appropriately named, Sunset Terrace, at the Inn & Spa at Loretto in Santa Fe. Kristen grew up visiting Santa Fe with her family, and it was the perfect place to honor the memory of her father who passed away five years ago. Set against the red adobe brick walls of the inn, Kristen glowed in the Sabrina, a lace trumpet wedding gown with custom lace sleeves. We are so happy to have been a small part of this beautiful love story. Congratulations, Kristen and Bill!
