Josh + Delaney, a Paa-Ko Ridge Wedding

Long before they had the dreamiest mountain top wedding at Paa-ko Ridge Gold Club, Josh and Delaney met through Greek life events in the fall of 2014 at New Mexico State University. These babes instantly clicked, Delaney admired Josh for his quick wit and incredibly caring heart while Josh was immediately smitten with Delaney’s bubbly personality and her genuine beauty. While still in college Josh lavilered Delaney (a Greek life tradition wherein a fraternity brother presents his significant other with a necklace of his frat letters as a symbol of commitment and love. Major swoon right?!) and knew that she was his forever.

In fall of 2017 Josh decided to make it last name official and proposed to Delaney during holiday photos in the Albuquerque foothills. Knowing how important Delaney’s sorority sisters are to her, Josh made sure that he popped the question right before her final college semester so that she could celebrate her engagement with her closest friends.

We ventured up to Par-ko Ridge Golf Club this October to capture these lovers with one of the most genuine, heartfelt days of the year. From opting for pre-ceremony letter reading near each other instead of a first look to having one of their close friends officiate the ceremony to partying all night, Josh and Delaney were so much fun to hang with for one magical day! We also low-key loved when Delaney and her dad, Sam, shared a quick little pre ceremony drink. Cheers Josh and Delaney, we hope marriage is a blast.

P.S. lets throw a giant party in the mountains again soon okay?

Brian + Ashley, an Eldorado Hotel Wedding

To finish off our crazy, wonderful September full of lovely weddings, we captured Brian and Ashley’s gorgeous, elegant wedding at Eldorado Hotel and Spa right off of the historic Santa Fe Plaza.

Brian and Ashley met in 2012 through mutual friends, however, sparks didn’t fly until they reunited in 2015 for their first official first date. When Ashley began to have severe health problems that would eventually lead to a major surgery and her missing out on the holidays with her family, Brian stayed by her side throughout it all. One year later, Brian wanted Ashley to have a huge reason to celebrate the holidays and not think about the stressful events of the previous year, so he proposed to her on Thanksgiving day in front of both of their families.

Fast forward to 2018 and these lovers started off their celebration with a sweet ceremony in Eldorado’s La Capilla de Oro, a modern, yet insanely ethereal chapel and even had Ashley’s mom sing and play guitar for it. Ashley’s dreamy ballgown, Brian’s reaction to her walking down the aisle, and, of course, their sweet pups Bear and Bailey had us feeling all of the true love, low-key fairytale feels. After a few dreamy golden hour romantics and a cocktail hour complete with a mariachi band, Brian and Ashley partied with all of their friends and family on Eldorado’s rooftop and wrapped up the night with a joyous sparkler send off. Congrats to the Pereas, we loved your enchanting fall wedding!
