Zulyha + Christopher – Marfa & Big Bend Elopement

After dealing with Covid restrictions, reschedulings, etc. for their wedding, Zulyha and Christopher decided putting off exchanging their vows wasn’t something they wanted to put off any longer. They were ready to enter this new chapter of their life now. We talked about all sorts of different locations for them to exchange their vows. Marfa felt right. And it was. They wanted somewhere warm since they were in the midst of the winter months in the Hudson Valley in New York, where they live.  We gave them some options and Marfa won and it didn’t disappoint. A Marfa elopement was perfect for them. Marfa a place to feel free, to be yourself, and explore all sorts of weird and quirky things. A certain aurora about it is difficult to put into words, so we recommend just taking a trip out there.

The few days down in Marfa with these two and their best friend ended up being such a treat. We stayed in this amazing little Airbnb, ate amazing food, and explored some truly beautiful and massive places. Everything in Texas is truly bigger. We’ve been to Texas before, but not this part of Texas. This was a whole different Texas than we knew and loved it.

The day of their elopement and exchange of vows was so relaxed. We walked to a great spot for brunch, ate some delicious food, headed back to the house where Zulyha and Christopher made some serious magic with their florals and decor. She made her own beautiful bouquet and put together the most beautiful tablescape for dinner later that night. The whole thing was completely DIY and yet still so laid back. We drove out to the Marfa Mystery Lights viewing area, where they exchanged their vows, then explored the quirky far west Texas town together and drove a bit further out into the desert for some more photos. That night, we went back to the house, ate some amazing homecooked food, drank lots of Topo-Chico.

The next morning, we woke up at 4am to drive down to Big Bend National Park for some more photos. It was wild driving there in the dark with nothing in sight for miles and miles. We had no idea what we’d be seeing when the sun came up. To say we were surprised and taken by awe is an understatement. The mountains, canyons, colors, foliage, and sheer vastness of Big Bend was unimaginable. The harsh Texas sun came up quickly on us, but we found the most amazing pockets of beautiful light that were shielded by the wild rough peaks throughout the area.

This trip was so refreshing after a year of looking at the same views of our neighborhood. Zulyha and Christopher were also such a breath of fresh air. Such gracious and kind souls who gave complete trust in us to create something special for them in a place none of us had been to before. After 3 days together, it felt like we were a family who had known each other forever. Couldn’t ask for anything more.
