Geoff + Jocelyn, a Colorful Hacienda Doña Andrea Wedding

Geoff and Jocelyn invited us to party with them on a Monday (!) high above Madrid, NM at Hacienda Doña Andrea. This weekday wedding was one for the books: intimate, laughter filled, and completely amazing!

These lovers met at a mutual friend’s BBQ while petting the same dog (honestly the best way to meet anyone) and Geoff proposed in 2018 over Veteran’s Day Weekend during a road trip between LA and San Francisco. He asked Jocelyn to be his wife on Windy Hill, a special place from his childhood, and in addition to giving her a gorgeous ring, Geoff also gave her a photo album about their love story (forever teary eyed over this detail).

We adored how much fun and stress free Geoff and Jocelyn’s June wedding truly was, from their “friend testimonials” during the ceremony (complete with quotes from Wedding Crashers) to their uber pretty romantics around Hacienda Doña Andrea’s unique property to their downright fun reception, we’re wishing that we could party every single Monday with these two. Congrats Geoff and Jocelyn, let’s do it all over again!

Wedding Inspo - Desert Florals

For our little team, being located in the gorgeous state of New Mexico means that we get to experience all of the amazing traditions, tastes, and beauty of the Southwest. One of our all time favorite details we get to see in both everyday life and on wedding days are desert florals. Our hearts are so happy that more and more of our brides and grooms are embracing some of our most beloved desert plants and flowers in both live florals and desert inspired details. From cacti to succulents to pampas grass to protea flowers, all of these hot climate beauties are something to behold. Check out some of our favorite desert florals for lots of Southwestern inspo!

Matt + Allie, a Cozy Home Engagement

We kicked off our summer engagements in the best way, with a super fun in-home session with Matt and Allie. These two know how to go from crazy in love to super silly in just a matter of moments! Our girl Bre had the best time capturing these two Santa Fe babes in their family home high in the mountains.

These two have been together for 5 years and are making it last name official next May at La Fonda on the Plaza with a sweet, intimate wedding.

Randy + Danielle, a Desert Engagement

Randy and Danielle might not be getting married until next year (June 2020) but we can’t help but gush over these two and their incredible sweet love story.

After meeting through mutual friends, these two hung out for the first time at Austin City Limits and immediately hit it off after a weekend of amazing music. And even though they lived in different cities (Randy in Houston and Danielle in Austin) these two made it work and eventually decided to officially call Austin home.

Between being the coolest couple around (they love doing everything and anything outdoors) and having two of the cutest fur babies on the planet (Autumn and Jude), they’re also major couple goals. Along with having fun together (playing Mario Kart and watching Game of Thrones), these two speak each other’s love languages perfectly — Danielle loves how supportive and caring Randy is (he washes her car every Saturday and always remembers to snag macaroons from her fave bakery— insert all the heart eyes) and Randy loves how Danielle is so loving in the way that she always puts others first.

We can’t wait for their Santa Fe celebration at La Fonda on the Plaza next summer, bring on the party babes!

Geoff + Jocelyn, a Rock House Engagement

Last month, we spent a golden hour evening with two of the most fun, light-hearted sweethearts around! Geoff and Jocelyn kept their Rock House engagement sooo carefree and fun that we couldn’t help but share a few of their silly moments alongside their breathtaking romantics on the blog!

These babes have been together for 4 years and met in the best way possible, while petting a dog at the same time. Geoff and Jocelyn like to to keep their relationship loving, supportive, and of course a little bit goofy! Not to mention they share a mutual love for ice cream.

We are over the moon to capture their Monday (!) wedding at Hacienda Dona Andrea this June. We can’t wait to be a part of their incredibly genuine, romantic, and downright fun love story!
