Having lived in Albuquerque for nearly ten years, I have come to love the rustic culture of the great southwest. But a little more than a year ago, we left that fascinating (and sometimes quirky) state and headed home to family and business in the big state of Texas. When a friend from Albuquerque wrote to ask about our new wedding venue, I thought she had missed the fact that we no longer lived there. I reminder her that we had moved away from “The Land of Enchantment” and our venue actually set on twenty-seven gorgeous acres in the heart of Texas, not New Mexico. Imagine my delight when she emailed right back and said, “I AM IN TEXAS!” Danielle had moved to Fort Worth and had recently gotten engaged.
And Danielle wanted to bring a touch of her New Mexico roots to our charming Texas farm.
I was beyond excited.
Danielle picked the perfect month and day for her southwest wedding: October 3, 2015. The weather was glorious, the skies big and blue, and the bride, well she was beautiful.
Take a look at Michael and Danielle’s Southwest Fusion wedding. I loved it!

Milagro Farms, Forreston, TX
I was raised in an entrepreneurial family and we engaged in a variety of exchanges: restaurants, antiques, imports, and lighting. I left the family businesses years ago and I have been working with international ministries. These recent ventures have included rather interesting doses of marketing and event planning. My work experience is all over the place. My fragmented career life has most recently come together to form a picture fit for a kaleidoscope: We moved to a farm; we opened a wedding venue.
Now my life consists of hosting weddings, working with brides (and mamas and grooms and
more family members than anyone should have, let alone include in their wedding planning), growing peach trees, and cooking for our small Bed and Breakfast. And as if I had nothing else to do, I also cater some of the large weddings held in our farm barn.
The name of this new and wildly exhausting adventure is Milagro Farms, a peach farm, wedding venue, and Bed and Breakfast set on a twenty-seven acre tract of primo land in the wooded vistas that border the cotton country of central Texas. My husband Steve and I are resident farmers along with our partners, my brother Scott and his wife Deborah. We work nonstop and when I put this old body to bed, I’m sore, exhausted, and surprisingly satisfied.
It’s good to work hard. I sleep better than I have in years.
