Once in a while we are lucky enough to come across love stories that defy all odds and that truly make us believe in the power of love. Last year Crystal and Amy's story was just that and it was a story that defied the odds. These two beauties met by chance at a mutual friend's party in Denver, CO despite the fact that they were both living in Albuquerque, NM at the time. Amy and Crystal both had the same lingering feeling, a pull that could only be fate bringing them together. Eventually, after being together for a little over a year, even after Amy had been relocated to Tucson, AZ due to her job in the United States Air Force, Amy proposed to Crystal during a gorgeous summer sunset in the desert. And Crystal, of course, said yes!! They celebrated with an incredible fall wedding at Los Poblanos last year with moody florals, a beyond cool wedding party, and the dreamiest wedding gown (that Crystal worn like an absolute queen).
This couple's love story was featured on Love Inc and we couldn't help but gush over these lovers' words about one another. Crystal even mentioned that she just knew Amy was her soulmate after seeing her laugh and hearing her voice for the first time. We're so beyond lucky to photograph so many amazing couples in our gorgeous home state of New Mexico, and Amy + Crystal were a wonderful, subtle reminder that true love is out there, you only need to have an open heart.
