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!
