Matthew + Alysia, an El Monte Sagrado Wedding

Long before tying the knot in a gorgeous winter wedding in northern New Mexico, Matthew and Alysia first met while attending Cibola High School in Albuquerque, NM. At the time, these lovers were nothing more than friends before parting ways after graduation (Alysia went to Minnesota to pursue collegiate soccer and Matthew to Delaware for the start of his military career). Shortly after, the pair met up during a summer in New Mexico and instantly became inseparable, but decided to remain friends for the following two years. However, fate had other plans and when Alysia visited Matthew at his military station in Hawaii, they decided to give their whirlwind relationship a go. Alysia moved to The Aloha State and three years later, Matthew proposed to her! They brought their love story full circle with a stunning wedding in Taos, New Mexico this past February! We loved their moody, yet classic day at the historic El Monte Sagrado. Congrats babes, we adored being a part of your day!!
