Mack + Shelby, a Winter Wedding at Four Seasons Santa Fe

Mack and Shelby, where do we even begin? These babes actually went to the same high school, however their paths didn’t cross until they both attended college at Texas A&M. After dating for a bit, the pair separated, only to later on realize how special they were to each other! They reunited and later on decided that it was a forever thing. Mack, being major #husbandgoals, told us that not only is Shelby beautiful and caring, but that she is truly the light of his life. We don’t have enough words (or enough tears) for this sweet little love story!

These babes tied the knot in December 2018 at our favorite, cozy mountain getaway, Four Seasons Santa Fe. With a touch of magic and pure boho glam from Amy and her team at For the Love Events and Rust Vintage, this day was out of this world. We still wish we could keep the velvet accent furniture and neon sign from this day! Our gals at Floriography Flowers came through with the perfect moody, winter floral arrangement and made sure that every single detail was amazing. And besides the amazing design, Mack and Shelby made sure that all of their guests (and vendors too!) were well taken care of for the entire night. These little lovers helped us close out our 2018 wedding season in the most perfect way! Congrats Mr and Mrs Paulson, we love y’all so much!

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.

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!!!
