Vendor Feature - Jessie Baca

Attention to details on wedding days are definitely one of our favorite things here at Alicia Lucia photography and we can’t help but gush over other wedding vendors who share that same love & passion. Our girl Jessie Baca has coordinated countless weddings and styled shoots here in New Mexico and we’ve been lucky enough to capture so many of her ultra creative, amazingly gorgeous ideas. From pampas grass adorned seating charts at the iconic Santa Fe Opera to the moodiest winter wedding table arrangements at Los Poblanos to incredible Spanish inspired hacienda weddings in the heart of Santa Fe, there isn’t any creation of Jessie’s doing that we haven’t fallen in love with at first sight. We love this talented lady and her endless passion for all things southwestern and beautiful!!!

Winter Florals

It is no surprise that winter has a special place in our hearts and even though we don’t shoot a ton of winter weddings and elopements, we adore them beyond belief. One of our favorite details is, of course, winter florals and all the variety they bring to wedding days. From the dark and moody, to the celebratory pops of color, to the more muted cold-weather tones, to jewled tones, we love all the flower color palettes we’re treated to every winter. Check out some of our most memorable bouquets and arrangements from the past few years and we’re sure you’ll wish every wedding was in the winter!

Dustin + Ashley, a Los Poblanos Wedding

A love story that started as a sweet high school romance came full circle this past June, when Dustin and Ashley tied the knot on a rainy day at Los Poblanos Historic Inn and Organic Farm. These lovers became official in 2009 while attending Manzano High School in Albuquerque, NM and shortly after, Dustin proposed in 2011 at the top of the Sandia Peak (in the exact same spot where Ashley became his girlfriend only two years before). Fast forward to almost 9 whole years of love when these darlings threw an incredible party for the people that they love the most! Joined by family and friends from both college and other parts of life, Dustin and Ashley topped off their sweet day with so many incredible details including gorgeous moody florals, a divine Victorian inspired wedding gown, tiny pots of honey for wedding guest favors, and even cufflinks for the groom from former president Barrack Obama. Don’t mind us as we continue to swoon over everything from this day’s color palette to Dustin and Ashley’s ultra romanic portraits around the Los Poblanos grounds! Congrats to the new Mr+Mrs. Chavez, we loved every last little bit of your day!!
