We’ve seen it allll at autumn weddings, from lush neutral colored bridal bouquets with touches of rust to dark and moody shades of red and violet to simple blends of both light and dark tones.

Fave Weddings - Bre's Picks

Our third photog sister in our little squad is the amazingly talented Bre who, in addition to owning her own newborn/maternity photography company, also second shoots and sometimes lead shoots for our team! She’s helped us capture some of the most fun weddings the last few years and she’s shouted out her fave moments here on the blog!

Shaun + Jessie (coming soon to our blog) at Sarabande Bed and Breakfast- I love how laid back this couple was. They had a small intimate wedding in a gorgeous venue, a bed and breakfast. Their guests were really sweet and fun as well! My favorite guests at a wedding.

Randy + Elizabeth at the Santa Fe Opera- This wedding was very classy, and I loved it! It had the most gorgeous view, and the navy/rose gold combo was to die for!

Scott + Leanne at SITE Santa Fe- This wedding was the most fun of the year. With Scott being in the creative industry as well, he had a lot of image ideas and they were fun! Plus, the fun black and white wall at their venue was so awesome.

Sarah + Oriol at Gerald Peters Gallery - These out of town lovers just had the most beautiful, intimate unique wedding because their ceremony and reception were both at an art museum. I loved it, and his accent!

Randy + Elizabeth, a Santa Fe Opera Wedding

Randy and Elizabeth’s love story may have began in San Francisco (where they currently live with their pup Ryno), but these two traveled all the way to sweet Santa Fe, NM for a simple, yet elegant wedding at the ever iconic Santa Fe Opera.

These two met just over four years ago where they bonded over their mutual love for tacos and coffee and after a few years together, Randy proposed on Thanksgiving Day.

Randy and Elizabeth took destination wedding to a whole new level with the most incredible prep and wedding venues. Elizabeth got ready at the quaint and incredible, Hacienda Rose just off downtown Santa Fe (we’re still swooning over this place’s wonderful New Mexican details and endless adobe architecture). We loved Elizabeth’s effortless yet understated glam wedding day style, from her sleek Monique Lhuillier gown accented with a jeweled BHLDN belt to her glitter encrusted Jimmy Choo pumps, this bride knows how to pull off one of our favorite subtle glamorous looks of the year! Elizabeth also included her grandmother’s turquoise broach (that she had purchased in Santa Fe many years ago) on her bouquet as her something blue. We were so excited to capture their first look at the opera and, of course, explore the wildly enchanting grounds for plenty of stunning romantics.

Besides getting to party at the world famous Santa Fe Opera, Randy and Elizabeth’s guests were also treated to a little Jessie Baca and Viva Flora magic including pashmina wraps to keep out the early October chill, the dreamiest guest seating signage, and all the dusty denim/blush/rose gold table accents for days!

We’ll probably never be over this day or these two babes! Congrats Randy + Elizabeth, you two were an absolute dream.
