Wedding Inspo - Fall Wedding Florals

With a new season on the horizon, a lush new variety of different wedding color palettes and trends are on our minds. Wedding florals are always one the most diverse, yet versatile wedding detail, especially in the fall. We’ve seen it allll at autumn weddings, from lush neutral colored bridal bouquets with touches of rust to dark and moody shades of red and violet to simple blends of both light and dark tones. We’re on the brink of amazing fall weddings and can’t freaking wait for all the beauty to come this year!!!

Venue Feature - Hacienda Doña Andrea de Santa Fe

Hidden high up in the mountains of Madrid, New Mexico with only a short drive to Santa Fe, Hacienda Doña Andrea de Santa Fe is quickly becoming a new favorite gem for local and destination couples. We first shot at this quirky, yet totally magical spot last spring with Brooklyn lovers Ethan and Sarah and couldn’t help but adore its unique, colorful accents set against its traditional Southwestern adobe building. Since then, we’ve captured two more sweet couples, Chris + Emma last fall and Geoff+ Jocelyn this summer, at this special little hacienda and ALWAYS notice something new about it. Whether its finding a hidden hallway to capture a few quick romantics in or taking a ton of detail shots of all of this property’s insane art, Hacienda Doña Andrea never fails to surprise us with its interesting beauty and personality. We’ll be back next season and we can’t wait to see what we discover at this amazing little venue.

Fave Weddings - Bre's Picks

Our third photog sister in our little squad is the amazingly talented Bre who, in addition to owning her own newborn/maternity photography company, also second shoots and sometimes lead shoots for our team! She’s helped us capture some of the most fun weddings the last few years and she’s shouted out her fave moments here on the blog!

Shaun + Jessie (coming soon to our blog) at Sarabande Bed and Breakfast- I love how laid back this couple was. They had a small intimate wedding in a gorgeous venue, a bed and breakfast. Their guests were really sweet and fun as well! My favorite guests at a wedding.

Randy + Elizabeth at the Santa Fe Opera- This wedding was very classy, and I loved it! It had the most gorgeous view, and the navy/rose gold combo was to die for!

Scott + Leanne at SITE Santa Fe- This wedding was the most fun of the year. With Scott being in the creative industry as well, he had a lot of image ideas and they were fun! Plus, the fun black and white wall at their venue was so awesome.

Sarah + Oriol at Gerald Peters Gallery - These out of town lovers just had the most beautiful, intimate unique wedding because their ceremony and reception were both at an art museum. I loved it, and his accent!

Shaun + Jessie, a Sarabande Bed and Breakfast Wedding

Last November we captured one of our favorite, intimate weddings of all time at Sarabande Bed and Breakfast. Shaun and Jessie had so many unique details, from a rainbow bouquet to stationary and custom roadrunner pins designed by the groom himself to amazing donuts instead of cake, we’re not even sure which part was our favorite.

These babes met almost a decade ago in Ohio when Jessie was working at a coffee shop and Shaun slowly but surely became one of her favorite regular customers. To her surprise, Shaun started working at the same coffee shop only a few weeks after they initially met! Eight years later, these lovers moved across the country with their pups to our amazing little desert state of New Mexico to start new jobs and a brand new chapter in their lives. In one of the coolest proposal twists we’ve ever heard of, Jessie asked Shaun to marry her with nothing but whiskey and a hair tie (that he even wore for a few days after).

Shaun and Jessie gave us major Jim and Pam vibes with their chill, genuine, down-to-earth love. We will probably never recover from their incredible day. Congrats babes, we love you both so much!!!

Ethan + Sarah, a Hacienda Doña Andrea Wedding

Originally from two different midwest states, current New Yorkers Ethan and Sarah decided that after 9 years of love and happiness it was time to make it official with a destination wedding at the ever quaint, wildly Southwestern Hacienda Doña Andrea in Santa Fe. Ethan popped the question on a picturesque morning in Sterling, Utah where the couple had been staying while road tripping through a few Rocky Mountain states over Memorial Day weekend in 2017. These Brooklyn babes met through mutual friends and started out as roommates nearly a decade ago! Their wedding included friends and family from Ohio, Michigan, California, Colorado, and New York and was a super amazing, laid-back celebration! The ceremony featured a few really rad details including Ethan's cousin Maggie as the officiant and the newlyweds' recessional music as "Africa" by Toto. We are beyond stoked for these East Coast lovers, thank you for letting us be a part of your Southwestern love story!!
