Jon + Paige, a Colorful Los Poblanos Wedding

Last November we were so beyond thrilled to head back to our favorite Albuquerque gem, Los Poblanos, for an intimate blush-toned wedding with sweet lovers Jon and Paige. Every second of this sweet day was precious and downright magical!

Long before their wedding, Paige let us know that her and Jon wanted a day that would focus less on all of the usual wedding day details and more on their family and close friends from all over the country. For her, the most important part of the day to capture was all of their loved ones celebrating together for the first time which is one of our favorite things to hear from brides!

Even though details weren’t the focus of this incredibly special day, Paige still managed to awe us with her gorgeous, off-the-shoulder, blush wedding gown and absolutely killer, bright florals from our gal pals over at Viva Flora. And, per usual, our girl Genica Lee made sure that this stunning bride looked absolutely angelic on the first day of being a Mrs.

Jon and Paige, you two were an absolute treat to capture, we’re sooo grateful to be a small part of your new beginning! Cheers to you lovely babes!

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!

Derek + Brigitte, a La Fonda Wedding

Derek and Brigitte, where to even begin? We were so stoked to kick off 2018 with these two and shooting their stunning wedding in the heart of the Santa Fe Plaza. Along with all of their dreamy wedding day details, we were truly struck by this couple's genuine, open, REAL love. There is nothing more affirming and incredible than witnessing an authentic connection between two beautiful souls. Derek and Brigitte were so ready and willing to not only begin their lifelong journey, but to let everyone around it (including us!!) be completely immersed in their breathtaking love story.  From their love for their adorable son Jude, to their close knit family/friends to their never ending laughs and smiles, Derek and Brigitte are proof that the once in a lifetime kinda love everyone searches for, is out there. Thank you for inspiring us with your love you two, congrats on your beautiful new chapter together!!!!

Sam + Catie, a Los Poblanos Wedding

Last September we were sooo excited to be a part of Sam and Catie's  rainy,  yet downright beautiful Los Poblanos wedding. This couple chose to have an amazing, soft, natural toned wedding to compliment Los Poblanos' gorgeous greenery. Amid Renegade Floral's stellar arrangements and bouquets , Catie's bridesmaids' mix and match dresses, and a simple yet sweet floral cake, the love from this couple was easily the most incredible wedding day detail. We were in absolute tears over their post ceremony moments in Los Poblanos' grand library and Catie's father gave an incredibly heartfelt speech that we may never forget.  Sam and Catie know how to throw a party and had everyone dancing and smiling through the night! Congrats to the Walkers, we adored your early fall wedding!
