Erik + Jessa, a Tamaya Wedding

Erik and Jessa’s little love story began about six years ago when they met by chance at work and even though Jessa left for a new position in California, her and Erik remained in touch. A few months after Jessa’s move, Erik came to visit her and they’ve been together ever since.

Erik proposed in 2017 while he and Jessa were on vacation in Puerto Vallarta over breakfast on the beach! He put all of the sweet little notes they had wrote to each other over the years into a box that also contained an engagement ring and Jessa was over the moon to say yes!

The ever charming Hyatt Tamaya in Bernallio, New Mexico incorporates both indoor and outdoor wedding aspects, making it the perfect venue choice for these lovers. Erik and Jessa also included Erik’s Scottish ancestry (the Buchanan family) into their ceremony with some of the coolest details! From bagpipe players during cocktail hour to using the Buchanan tartan for Erik and his groomsmen’s pocket squares to custom medallions of the Buchanan crest on each guest’s plate to including Blue Scottish Thistle in all of the florals, these lovers brought an incredible Scottish vibe to their modern, late-summer wedding. Congrats lovers, being a part of your day was sooo incredibly special to us!

Shane + Megan, a Dreamy New Mexico Wedding

In one of our dreamiest weddings to date, Shane and Megan vowed to love and cherish one another for the rest of their lives surrounded by family and friends at the breathtakingly beautiful Tinnin residence in Albuquerque, New Mexico. The couple met six and a half years ago, but Shane knew instantly that he wanted to spend the rest of his life with Megan. Their vows pulled on our heartstrings during an incredibly emotional ceremony and both Megan's father and sister gave toasts that brought the entire room to tears.  In honor of her late mother, Megan's father gifted her one of her mother's gorgeous diamond rings to wear as her 'something old' and 'something blue'.  In addition to all of their heartfelt, deeply moving moments, Shane and Megan also incorporated some stunning details into their larger-than -life, truly incredible wedding. From florals with a hint of a tropical edge to an amazing dessert bar to a garter toss complete with a football (as a nod to Shane's life as a quarterback), this couple pulled out all of the stops to celebrate the next chapter of their lives! We were so honored to capture all of the laughs, tears, and love from this unforgettable day.
