La Fonda on the Plaza - A Venue Feature

One of the best things about our sweet little job is how much time we get to spend in Santa Fe every year. Our capital city lies just to the north of our home base of Albuquerque and there is seriously magic around every corner of The City Different. From quaint adobe buildings to the historic plaza to some of the best New Mexican cuisine in the state, Santa Fe is seriously a gold mine for locals and visitors alike. It comes as no surprise that soooo many of our out of state couples select good old SF as the prime place to tie the knot and their number one destination is our home away from home, iconic La Fonda on the Plaza.

Not only is La Fonda memorable, but it is also incredibly significant to Santa Fe’s history. Initially founded in 1607 as Santa Fe’s first inn, La Fonda’s site is also the oldest hotel corner in the United States of America. However, the building that still stands today and has continually been loved and adored by New Mexicans and travelers alike wasn’t built until 1922. It features architectural influences by Mary Elizabeth Jane Colter and John Gaw Meem including hand carved beams, ethereal stained glass window skylight, and a 25 foot cathedral ceiling. More info on this beautiful space can be found on La Fonda’s website.

We’ve spent a whole lot of time at this very special place over the past few years and we can’t wait to return later on in 2019 for even more beauty.

Table Setting Inspo

When we’re not obsessing over the amazing pre-wedding details our couples always bring to wedding days, falling in love with first looks, or crying our eyes out during ceremonies, you can find our team swooning over reception table details at basically every single wedding we capture. We’re seriously so lucky that every couple we work with brings their a-game to all of the little touches that make receptions so special. From the clean and classic, to the glittering and pastel, to the rustic and boho chic, girly and glam, muted and minimalistic .. we’re not sure what our favorite has been so far because we’re in love with every set up! Shout out to the rockstar planners and rental companies we’ve worked with, y’all know how to make wedding day dreams come true!
