Wedding Inspo - Sheath Bridal Gowns

If there’s one current wedding trend that we can’t get enough of, its how popular sheath gowns have become over the past few years. Chic, modern, and effortlessly elegant, this style of dress can go from a backyard wedding to a Santa Fe Plaza wedding to an art gallery wedding to an elopement in the mountains! We love how this minimalist design can be paired with a simple jeweled belt or a lace overlay to make it even more gorgeous. Shout out to one of the most universally flattering designs out there, we can’t wait for more brides to shine in sheath gowns!

Engagement Inspo - Old Town Albuquerque

When it comes to engagements, everyone that knows our little team knows how much we just love exploring national parks and beautiful nature reserves around our sweet little Southwestern state, but we never say know to an engagement session in Old Town Albuquerque. Decked out with the coolest adobe buildings, subtle New Mexican details, and plenty of unique charm, this special little part of Albuquerque always gets us in our feels. If you’re looking for a cozy spot for your engagement session without going into the wilderness, Old Town might just be the perfect fit.

Wedding Inspo - Bridesmaid Style Second Edition

A little over a year ago we posted about some of our favorite bridesmaid styles out there and then were absolutely blown away by all of the amazing styles we’ve seen since. From having bridesmaids go the traditional route with the same dress, to choosing different styles in the same color, to full on mix-and-match gowns that align perfectly with wedding palettes— our brides just know how to help their besties look downright stunning for wedding days!

We can’t wait to see all of the girl squads for the rest of this season! Cheers to incredibly chic, amazing bride tribes!!!

Owen + Amelia, a New Mexico Engagement

Owen and Amelia’s beautiful spring wedding at Hotel Albuquerque might be a year away, but we explored some of the beautiful mountains and deserts with them last month! Their sweet, intimate, garden centered day is bound to be lush and gorgeous!

These sweethearts originally met while in grad school in Boston, but made a new home in Albuquerque when Owen landed a job at a law firm in town. Owen and Amelia have been going strong for 7 whole years and even have a fur baby, Penelope (a sweet little golden doodle pup) of their own! We can’t wait to capture these sweeties in the heart of Old Town.
