Jake + Angela, a Sandia Wedding

Even though Jake and Angela just tied the knot this September we’ve known these sweet lovers, and their two precious daughters for many years! Getting to hang out with them on their big day was a huge honor for our team and was such a amazing day to be a part of, we loved getting to capture the love of a couple that feels like family to us!

Jake and Angela met at the end of 2012 while Jake was out celebrating a work promotion and Angela was celebrating the completion of her Masters degree. Jake asked Angela to dance (with the wax on wax off dance) and the rest is history. Over the past 7 years, these two have had two beautiful daughters, welcomed three dogs into their home, and bought a house together! For them, this wedding was the cherry on top of an already beautiful life!

Although we haven’t captured a wedding Sandia Event Center since 2016, Jake and Angela’s big day was the perfect welcome back. Everything from this couple’s gorgeous navy and burgandy details, to dreamy romantics during blue hour to a first dance with their daughters to “Blessed” by Thomas Rhett was nothing short of perfection.

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!!
