Jake + Angela, a Sandia Wedding

Even though Jake and Angela just tied the knot this September we’ve known these sweet lovers, and their two precious daughters for many years! Getting to hang out with them on their big day was a huge honor for our team and was such a amazing day to be a part of, we loved getting to capture the love of a couple that feels like family to us!

Jake and Angela met at the end of 2012 while Jake was out celebrating a work promotion and Angela was celebrating the completion of her Masters degree. Jake asked Angela to dance (with the wax on wax off dance) and the rest is history. Over the past 7 years, these two have had two beautiful daughters, welcomed three dogs into their home, and bought a house together! For them, this wedding was the cherry on top of an already beautiful life!

Although we haven’t captured a wedding Sandia Event Center since 2016, Jake and Angela’s big day was the perfect welcome back. Everything from this couple’s gorgeous navy and burgandy details, to dreamy romantics during blue hour to a first dance with their daughters to “Blessed” by Thomas Rhett was nothing short of perfection.

Venue Feature - Four Seasons Santa Fe

Nestled high above Santa Fe in the pretty New Mexican mountain lies one of our favorite venues, Four Seasons Santa Fe. Even though we don’t get to visit for leisure often, it is always such a treat to capture our couples and their special days. Decked out with simple, but beautiful decor, this venue can literally be transformed for every wedding, from minimalist and modern styles to the biggest boho designs. We love the opportunity of finding new spaces at this stunning getaway to capture our couples and their love stories!

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)!
