Styled Sunday - Rocky Mountain Bride at Los Poblanos

As all of our friends know, we are huge fangirls of Los Poblanos Historic Inn and Organic Farm, our favorite little Albuquerque gem tucked away in the gorgeous North Valley. So when the amazing gals at Rocky Mountain Bride reached out and asked us to capture a new wedding feature for Los Poblanos, we were over the moon!

At the end of last October, we teamed up with some of our favorite vendor besties and made major magic happen right at the peak of fall. We even convinced two of our fave, real-life sweethearts, Carolyn and Paul, to dress up as our bride and groom for the day. Amid the stunning fall foliage, impeccable planning and details came together for one of the craziest, most amazing days ever! We shot a dreamy three day wedding weekend including an insanely yummy welcome brunch and game of bocce ball on day one, followed by bike rides and drink tasting for the boys and flower crown making for the girls on day two, and then the gorgeous, intimate wedding on the final day of festivities.

We were soooo thrilled to be a part of this stunner of a shoot, cheers to many more whimsical, incredible days like this one!!!

La Fonda on the Plaza - A Venue Feature

One of the best things about our sweet little job is how much time we get to spend in Santa Fe every year. Our capital city lies just to the north of our home base of Albuquerque and there is seriously magic around every corner of The City Different. From quaint adobe buildings to the historic plaza to some of the best New Mexican cuisine in the state, Santa Fe is seriously a gold mine for locals and visitors alike. It comes as no surprise that soooo many of our out of state couples select good old SF as the prime place to tie the knot and their number one destination is our home away from home, iconic La Fonda on the Plaza.

Not only is La Fonda memorable, but it is also incredibly significant to Santa Fe’s history. Initially founded in 1607 as Santa Fe’s first inn, La Fonda’s site is also the oldest hotel corner in the United States of America. However, the building that still stands today and has continually been loved and adored by New Mexicans and travelers alike wasn’t built until 1922. It features architectural influences by Mary Elizabeth Jane Colter and John Gaw Meem including hand carved beams, ethereal stained glass window skylight, and a 25 foot cathedral ceiling. More info on this beautiful space can be found on La Fonda’s website.

We’ve spent a whole lot of time at this very special place over the past few years and we can’t wait to return later on in 2019 for even more beauty.

Styled Sunday - a Fall Bridal Session

For this Styled Sunday, we decided to take it back to 2016 for a glam, yet edgy styled bridal session in Santa Fe with the gorgeous Mara Anderson and an incredible team of vendors. This session had sooo many staple details for fall weddings, from a long sleeve gown, to deep/bold florals, to a chic leather jacket. Mixed in with standout pieces were a few whimsical details as well, including macaroons and simple, neutral wedding stationary. Get inspired this fall with a few wedding trends that truly never go out of style!
This incredible day was also featured by Junebug Weddings as an Edgy Romantic Santa Fe Bridal Inspiration

Tyler + Jordan, a Summer Wedding at La Fonda

Tyler and Jordan’s sweet, intimate wedding at La Fonda on the Plaza this past August was nothing short of absolutely dreamy and incredibly special to capture.

These lovers met in middle school and dated in high school before parting ways, only to both end up in Arizona years later. They gave their love another go and realized that it was meant to be! Tyler proposed on a beach in Cancun while these lovers were on vacation, two days before Jordan’s birthday!

For these babes, their destination wedding in Santa Fe was focused on family and having everyone enjoy New Mexico’s amazing little capital city.  Jordan’s uncle Art officiated the ceremony and they added a unity candle, which symbolizes unity in a marriage, as special ceremony detail. With a little help from the insanely talented Lauren and her team at Just Lovely Weddings, these  two had everything from a mariachi led parade in the Santa Fe Plaza to the world’s most beautiful desert table, to a reception loved by everyone!

Even though it rained, our girls Ashley & Jen captured Tyler and Jordan’s tender, subtle love perfectly (especially that ethereal first look on La Fonda’s iconic staircase) ! We adored this day so much, congrats babes!
