Styled Sunday - Desert Lovers

This fall, we asked one of our fan favorite couples, Dillon and Stephanie, to adventure with us into the New Mexico desert for some golden hour magic with a handful of extremely talented vendors. From the stunning florals the gals over at Renegade Floral brought, to Hello Jori’s delicate hand-lettering, to Emerald Pie Bakery’s sweet little personalized macaroons and pies, we were in heaven for one brief little evening.

Besides having amazing style, these lovers even brought their sweet pup Penny along and we were beyond thrilled to capture this sweet little family together! Here’s to more incredible twilight moments with gorgeous couples and stunning details!

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!!
