Real Weddings - Borrowed and Blue

Love stories are by far one of our favorite things on the planet, but what we adore a little extra is the history and love behind the couples we get to capture. Every single wedding brings a new story and lots of exciting touches, especially when it comes to the “somethings” of wedding days. From dainty vintage rings passed down through generations that brides have as their “something old” to stellar veils from a loved one as “something borrowed” to discrete turquoise and navy shoes as “something blue”, our brides never fail to wow us with their extremely personal, unique, and downright beautiful details. We loved the stories behind these amazing little touches as much as we loved seeing them in person!!

Trey + Clara, a Southern New Mexico Wedding

This year our team was lucky enough to kick off wedding season with Trey + Clara, two of the kindest, most genuine, downright in love babes around. From their sweet little love story to their glorious spring wedding in Southern New Mexico, everything about these two is absolute perfection.

Even though they initially met in high school in their hometown of Las Cruces, NM, Trey and Clara didn’t hit it off until years later during college. Clara was at home visiting from college in Colorado when she ran into Trey at a local bar and (in true millennial fashion) the next day Trey slid into her DMs to ask Clara out on an official date. After two hour coffee date, these two were smitten with each other. Trey surprised Clara by visiting her in Colorado just three days after she went back (#boyfriendgoals). These two have been together ever since and made it last name official this spring!

Trey and Clara got married on a gorgeous family property in San Patricio, NM surrounded by about 300 of their favorite family members and friends. We adored the down to earth, yet amazingly classic style of this wedding. From the pretty mix-and-match periwinkle blue bridesmaid dresses to Clara’s stunning bridal hair and makeup (major model glam), to the dreamiest Justin Alexander wedding gown, all of the bridal details from this day had us head over heels. Not to mention, Trey and Clara found the perfect place to take their romantics (the Peter Hurd Guesthouse). This crazy little property was a wedding photogs dream, with everything from a tiny greenhouse to a lovely white gazebo to the most perfect pink adobe walls. We’re not sure that we’ve completely recovered from being absolutely smitten with this day and these lovers!

TBH we’ll probably never stop daydreaming about Trey + Clara’s wedding, so cheers to the best day to start off the 2019 wedding season!
