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.

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.

Wedding Inspiration - Wedding Favors

A favorite little wedding day details that our team adores is wedding guest favors. Whether they’re small and thoughtful or more involved, this tiny little ‘thank you’ isn’t quickly overlooked by guests. And while they’re not a mandatory wedding day item, they certainly go the extra mile in making guests feel extra love and appreciation on your special day. Our friends over at Forever Wedding Favors sent us some of their amazing, favorite thank you gifts and we found our personal faves from the last few years!
