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.

Mack + Shelby, a Winter Wedding at Four Seasons Santa Fe

Mack and Shelby, where do we even begin? These babes actually went to the same high school, however their paths didn’t cross until they both attended college at Texas A&M. After dating for a bit, the pair separated, only to later on realize how special they were to each other! They reunited and later on decided that it was a forever thing. Mack, being major #husbandgoals, told us that not only is Shelby beautiful and caring, but that she is truly the light of his life. We don’t have enough words (or enough tears) for this sweet little love story!

These babes tied the knot in December 2018 at our favorite, cozy mountain getaway, Four Seasons Santa Fe. With a touch of magic and pure boho glam from Amy and her team at For the Love Events and Rust Vintage, this day was out of this world. We still wish we could keep the velvet accent furniture and neon sign from this day! Our gals at Floriography Flowers came through with the perfect moody, winter floral arrangement and made sure that every single detail was amazing. And besides the amazing design, Mack and Shelby made sure that all of their guests (and vendors too!) were well taken care of for the entire night. These little lovers helped us close out our 2018 wedding season in the most perfect way! Congrats Mr and Mrs Paulson, we love y’all so much!

Styled Sunday - an Eldorado Hotel Wedding with Rocky Mountain Bride

Last year, we embarked on an incredible journey with Rocky Mountain Bride through the eclectic, enchanting hallways of Eldorado Hotel and Spa. From start to finish, Eldorado Hotel captivates at every turn with the perfect blend of traditional Santa Fe style and modern elegance.

We started this amazing day in the airy bridal suite adjacent to Eldorado’s chapel. Broad skylights and expansive space make this prep area an absolute dream for brides and photographers alike. Next we were enchanted by Eldorado’s simple, yet incredibly enchanting chapel, La Capilla de Oro. Inspired by Spanish colonial art, the gold gilded alter of La Capilla de Oro is perfect for any wedding and stands out beautifully against the pure white walls of this little ceremony space. Paired with vintage Elipale chairs and stellar greenery, this alter was fit for royalty!

Our dreamy bride and groom also roamed through the colorful rooms and hallways of Casa España where they were treated to cocktails and appetizers at an incredibly vibrant bar. And finally, we capped off this perfect day with a reception on Eldorado’s rooftop. Overlooking the iconic Santa Fe Plaza and with an incredible view of the Sangre de Cristo mountains, Eldorado’s sky-high patio is the perfect place to finish off an amazing wedding.

From Magnolia Event Company’s brilliant design plan to our bride’s delicate Lea-Ann Belter gown to Rocky Mountain Bride pulling everything together, this sublime day made us fall in love with Eldorado Hotel all over again.

This dream of a day was also published by Rocky Mountain Bride in 2017
