Real Weddings - Borrowed and Blue

Love stories are by far one of our favorite things on the planet, but what we adore a little extra is the history and love behind the couples we get to capture. Every single wedding brings a new story and lots of exciting touches, especially when it comes to the “somethings” of wedding days. From dainty vintage rings passed down through generations that brides have as their “something old” to stellar veils from a loved one as “something borrowed” to discrete turquoise and navy shoes as “something blue”, our brides never fail to wow us with their extremely personal, unique, and downright beautiful details. We loved the stories behind these amazing little touches as much as we loved seeing them in person!!

Ashwin + Lauren, a Snowy New Mexico Engagement

Earlier this year, we took full advantage of the wild snow storms New Mexico threw at us to capture the ever so sweet and serene Ashwin and Lauren. In something straight out of a movie, these lovebirds, who are also both physicians, met while working night shifts at a hospital in Boston. They slowly fell in love over late night snacks and even did a long distance relationship when Ashwin moved to Philadelphia for a cardiology residency. Lauren mentioned that her and Ashwin not only love laughing and bringing out the best in each other, but they’re also best friends. And after three years of loving each other, they’re soooo ready to make this a forever thing.

These babes will also be setting the bar for Santa Fe weddings sky high this Labor Day weekend with a two day celebration! They’ll kick of their forever with a New Mexico inspired, classic, elegant wedding at the iconic Cathedral Basilica of St Francis of Assisi off of the Santa Fe Plaza followed by a vibrant, colorful Hindu celebration (including a groom entrance on a white horse…real life fairytale much?!) in honor of Ashwin’s culture. We can’t even begin to describe just how excited we are for this giant, beautiful weekend!!
