Vendor Feature - Betty Rose by Alanna

We couldn’t pass up an opportunity to shout out one of our wedding day makeup mavens, Alanna Garcia! Over the past few years, so many of our brides have trusted Alanna with all of their glam needs and this MUA queen ALWAYS delivers. Her soft and natural, yet absolutely stunning looks continually make our brides look like absolute dreams. We trust and love this babe indefinitely, she even did bridal makeup on Alicia’s mom for her special day! All the love in the world in Alanna and her team of Betties as they continue to make weddings and engagements even more beautiful, can’t wait to capture even more of the prettiness they whip up this season!

Morgan + Mattie, a Big Colorful Las Campanas Santa Fe Wedding

In late July we were beyond lucky enough to capture Texas sweethearts Morgan and Mattie during their epic wedding weekend. From rehearsal dinner to wedding day, these to were nothing short of sweet, fun, and overall a dream couple! Their love story kicked off its next chapter in Santa Fe, but these babes had the cutest beginning.

Morgan and Mattie met over five years ago a bar called Reinfields Corner in Dallas, TX. Morgan made a big move by approaching Mattie and her group of friends with fireball shots. These two hit it off instantly and had their first date a week later. Flash forward to July 2018 when Mattie and Morgan visited Santa Fe. Mattie, who is incredibly hard to surprise, was completely surprised when Morgan popped the question at the Nedra Matteucci art gallery!

Mattie and Morgan wanted to make it last name official in Santa Fe and selected some of our all time favorite vendor pals to make their dream day a gorgeous reality. Floriography Flowers brought the lush, maximalist florals to this day, our literal angel Genica Lee made Mattie even more beautiful than normal with the prettiest hair + makeup, and Ashley of A Beautiful Theme made sure that every last detail and design at Las Campanas was absolutely stunning! Mattie paired the classic couture of her Reem Acra dress with the coolest custom cowboy boot from Miron Crosby and we are soooo here for that bridal western wear. To make this day even more fun, Mattie and Morgan not only brought their chocolate lab Bingley to New Mexico as their Best Dog (he even got a floral wreath to wear for the day), but they also gave him the ultimate honor of being part of their wedding day hashtag ,and our favorite one yet tbh, #bingelygetsadad.

We wish that every single wedding could be as insanely gorgeous, detailed oriented, and wonderfully fun as this day! Congrats to Mr and Mrs Mitchell, we love y’all (and Bingley too)!

Wedding Inspo - Desert Florals

For our little team, being located in the gorgeous state of New Mexico means that we get to experience all of the amazing traditions, tastes, and beauty of the Southwest. One of our all time favorite details we get to see in both everyday life and on wedding days are desert florals. Our hearts are so happy that more and more of our brides and grooms are embracing some of our most beloved desert plants and flowers in both live florals and desert inspired details. From cacti to succulents to pampas grass to protea flowers, all of these hot climate beauties are something to behold. Check out some of our favorite desert florals for lots of Southwestern inspo!

Gustav + Jackie, a New Mexico Engagement

If there’s one thing we adore about engagements besides capturing gorgeous, wildly romantic moments, its when we get to hang out with fun loving, silly-in-love couples. These cuties met in 2013 when they were both working as camp counselors. One holiday season Jackie made a “detour” from Colorado to Oklahoma to see Gustav on her way to visit family in Texas and the rest is history. In the fall of 2018, Gustav proposed to Jackie during a deep woods camping trip in Colorado.

While these lovers are from different places (Gustav is from Gallup, NM and Jackie is from Durango, CO), they have shared love for the Southwest and especially for green Chile! They’ll be moving to Seattle with their cat Pockets where Gustav will attend law school and where Jackie will continue her career as a theater educator.

Gustav and Jackie’s wedding is set to be a rustic, fun, southwestern party this June! We can’t hardly wait to capture these lovebirds in our favorite little Albuquerque spot, Los Poblanos Historic Inn and Organic Farm!
