Intimate Desert Wedding at Amangiri
When you live in New York, you dream of open spaces and starry skies, and this New York couple wanted something quiet and modern for their wedding celebration. The Bride and Groom planned an intimate desert wedding with their family and closest friends at Amangiri, an Aman Resort.
Amangiri is a high-end location and one of my favorite places to photograph weddings. It is so stunning and apart of the Aman Resort Chain. The architecture of Amangiri is so inspiring and unique, the landscape shaped every part of the design for the hotel.
For their wedding theme, they were inspired by the desert and stayed with neutral colors to not take away from the stunning location. Her wedding dress was a custom made design by Christina Desmet in New York City; her boots went perfectly with the length of her wedding dress. The groom’s classic suit is from Acne.
Their ceremony took place in a peaceful little rock canyon. The towering rock walls surrounded us, and we had a beautiful view of the cliffs behind the service. There wedding took place in November, and there were still a few signs of fall on some of the bushes, which created such a beautiful color palette. After their ceremony, we were able to explore the property for their portraits, and we chased the light as we made our way back to the resort.
One of my favorite details from their wedding was her wedding ring, she helped custom design it, and it was 3D printed by Bliss Lau. I couldn’t even believe it when she told me how the designer created it. It was so intricate and delicate.
I love how their friends and family came together to make this such a special day! One of her bridesmaids foraged from the desert to create her unique bouquet and his boutonniere. Her nieces were so excited to have baskets of flowers to walk down the aisle.
Once the sunset they had a candlelit dinner under the stars. I love hearing toasts during the dinner; the Bride and Groom are so loved by their family. I get emotional every time!
I love small wedding celebrations; they are so intimate and beautiful. There is something so special to have your closest people witnessing your special day.
