Josh + Delaney, a Paa-Ko Ridge Wedding

Long before they had the dreamiest mountain top wedding at Paa-ko Ridge Gold Club, Josh and Delaney met through Greek life events in the fall of 2014 at New Mexico State University. These babes instantly clicked, Delaney admired Josh for his quick wit and incredibly caring heart while Josh was immediately smitten with Delaney’s bubbly personality and her genuine beauty. While still in college Josh lavilered Delaney (a Greek life tradition wherein a fraternity brother presents his significant other with a necklace of his frat letters as a symbol of commitment and love. Major swoon right?!) and knew that she was his forever.

In fall of 2017 Josh decided to make it last name official and proposed to Delaney during holiday photos in the Albuquerque foothills. Knowing how important Delaney’s sorority sisters are to her, Josh made sure that he popped the question right before her final college semester so that she could celebrate her engagement with her closest friends.

We ventured up to Par-ko Ridge Golf Club this October to capture these lovers with one of the most genuine, heartfelt days of the year. From opting for pre-ceremony letter reading near each other instead of a first look to having one of their close friends officiate the ceremony to partying all night, Josh and Delaney were so much fun to hang with for one magical day! We also low-key loved when Delaney and her dad, Sam, shared a quick little pre ceremony drink. Cheers Josh and Delaney, we hope marriage is a blast.

P.S. lets throw a giant party in the mountains again soon okay?

Tyler + Cassie, a La Posada Wedding

This October, we went back to one of our all time favorite venues, La Posada de Santa Fe, for an unforgettable Sunday wedding with Texas lovers Tyler and Cassie. It may have been an unusually chilly and rainy day, but these babes brought the heat on their special day.

Tyler and Cassie’s darling little love story began when Cassie’s sister, Lexi, set them up on a group date (just knowing that they would be perfect for each other)! In early 2018, Tyler proposed in the town square of Mesilla, NM on a random Monday so that Cassie would be completely surprised. Afterwards, their families celebrated with them at La Posta (aka Cassie’s fave restaurant).

For choosing a wedding location, Cassie and Tyler settled on the ever enchanting Santa Fe since Cassie had been coming on weekend getaways to the capital city since she was a little girl. And La Posada turned out to have the perfect aesthetic for their glam, yet cozy wedding.

Flash forward to mid-October when these lovers said “I do” surrounded by their friends and families. Besides an incredible ceremony, we can’t get over the details from this day. Tyler and Cassie incorporated touches of the Southwest into their day including an epic succulent cake (by the queens at Maggie’s Wedding Cakes) to hand painted tiles (that the Just Lovely Weddings team created) to dreamy star lanterns (that seriously reminded us of New Mexico’s gorgeous star filled nights). And even though it was a little bit cold outside, these babes were totally up for romantics both outside in La Posada’s amazing courtyards and inside the infamous Staab house.

Congrats Tyler and Cassie, you raised the bar for amazing little Sunday weddings. We adore you both so much!

Erik + Jessa, a Tamaya Wedding

Erik and Jessa’s little love story began about six years ago when they met by chance at work and even though Jessa left for a new position in California, her and Erik remained in touch. A few months after Jessa’s move, Erik came to visit her and they’ve been together ever since.

Erik proposed in 2017 while he and Jessa were on vacation in Puerto Vallarta over breakfast on the beach! He put all of the sweet little notes they had wrote to each other over the years into a box that also contained an engagement ring and Jessa was over the moon to say yes!

The ever charming Hyatt Tamaya in Bernallio, New Mexico incorporates both indoor and outdoor wedding aspects, making it the perfect venue choice for these lovers. Erik and Jessa also included Erik’s Scottish ancestry (the Buchanan family) into their ceremony with some of the coolest details! From bagpipe players during cocktail hour to using the Buchanan tartan for Erik and his groomsmen’s pocket squares to custom medallions of the Buchanan crest on each guest’s plate to including Blue Scottish Thistle in all of the florals, these lovers brought an incredible Scottish vibe to their modern, late-summer wedding. Congrats lovers, being a part of your day was sooo incredibly special to us!
