James + Lauren, a Los Poblanos Wedding

Earlier this summer we celebrated long-time sweethearts and all around kind-hearted lovers James and Lauren. Even though it rained hard after their ceremony, these two were still the sweetest, easiest people to capture.

James and Lauren met 11 years ago right before their junior year of high school and haven’t been apart since. High atop the Sandia Mountains (and during Balloon Fiesta season!) James proposed to Lauren. They currently live in Arizona with their pup Gouda and their kitty Chamisa and work as teachers.

This gorgeous summer wedding was full as dainty details and soft tones. From Lauren’s delicate bridal jewelry to the stunning half floral arch from our gal pals at Floriography Flowers to the subtle reception details, everything about this day was gently romantic and oh so perfect. The rain didn’t even stop James and Lauren from adventuring with us around the Los Poblanos’ gorgeous grounds for some tender romantics. Cheers to the cutest little couple around, we adore you guys so much!!

Wedding Inspo - Sheath Bridal Gowns

If there’s one current wedding trend that we can’t get enough of, its how popular sheath gowns have become over the past few years. Chic, modern, and effortlessly elegant, this style of dress can go from a backyard wedding to a Santa Fe Plaza wedding to an art gallery wedding to an elopement in the mountains! We love how this minimalist design can be paired with a simple jeweled belt or a lace overlay to make it even more gorgeous. Shout out to one of the most universally flattering designs out there, we can’t wait for more brides to shine in sheath gowns!

Vendor Feature - Jessie Baca

Attention to details on wedding days are definitely one of our favorite things here at Alicia Lucia photography and we can’t help but gush over other wedding vendors who share that same love & passion. Our girl Jessie Baca has coordinated countless weddings and styled shoots here in New Mexico and we’ve been lucky enough to capture so many of her ultra creative, amazingly gorgeous ideas. From pampas grass adorned seating charts at the iconic Santa Fe Opera to the moodiest winter wedding table arrangements at Los Poblanos to incredible Spanish inspired hacienda weddings in the heart of Santa Fe, there isn’t any creation of Jessie’s doing that we haven’t fallen in love with at first sight. We love this talented lady and her endless passion for all things southwestern and beautiful!!!
