Ashwin + Lauren, a Hindu Wedding Celebration at La Posada de Santa Fe

Following the absolutely stunning traditional Catholic wedding in downtown Santa Fe, Ashwin and Lauren kept the celebration going with a Baraat, a Hindu wedding ceremony in which the groom travels on a white horse with a parade of family and friends to the wedding venue where the bride and her family awaits. We were so excited to capture this incredibly unique, yet beautiful tradition.

Ashwin kicked off the day in Cathedral Park, the garden area surrounding the Cathedral Basilica of St Francis of Assisi where he had celebrated part one of his marriage the day before, just as the sun was rising in Santa Fe. Once his white horse (named Gandalf!) arrived, Ashwin led a parade of his friends and family up the street to La Posada de Santa Fe, where Lauren and her family was waiting for him. After greeting Lauren’s parents at La Posada, Ashwin and the other guests were lead inside where a gorgeous mandap adorned with florals had been whipped up just for this day. Even though the ceremony is longer than most church weddings, the intricate traditions of it are beyond amazing to witness.

During the ceremony, the bride’s parents give away their daughter for marriage and floral garlands are exchanged between bride and groom to symbolize their acceptance of one another. Our dream bride Lauren started the day off in a gorgeous blue and purple sari (to symbolize her mother) and then changed into a vibrant red and organge sari (to represent her new husband’s family). After the ceremony, all of the guests were invited to the prettiest brunch and we got to spend just a little more time with these lovers. We loved that nearly every single person wore traditional Hindu saris or other colorful attire and to be honest, we’re OBSESSED with all of the bright, stunning colors. After this weekend, we wish that every single couple could have a two day long wedding weekend with all of the downright stunning traditions.

Cheers to this couple and their one-ofa-kind wedding celebration! SO grateful for sweet souls like Lauren and Ashwin, we loved celebrating this genuine, unforgettable love story!

Venue Feature - Hacienda Doña Andrea de Santa Fe

Hidden high up in the mountains of Madrid, New Mexico with only a short drive to Santa Fe, Hacienda Doña Andrea de Santa Fe is quickly becoming a new favorite gem for local and destination couples. We first shot at this quirky, yet totally magical spot last spring with Brooklyn lovers Ethan and Sarah and couldn’t help but adore its unique, colorful accents set against its traditional Southwestern adobe building. Since then, we’ve captured two more sweet couples, Chris + Emma last fall and Geoff+ Jocelyn this summer, at this special little hacienda and ALWAYS notice something new about it. Whether its finding a hidden hallway to capture a few quick romantics in or taking a ton of detail shots of all of this property’s insane art, Hacienda Doña Andrea never fails to surprise us with its interesting beauty and personality. We’ll be back next season and we can’t wait to see what we discover at this amazing little venue.

Adam + Jill, a Los Poblanos Wedding

Adam and Jill, two lovers that we can’t say enough sweet things about, made it last name official early this past August at Los Poblanos in the heart of the Albuquerque North Valley. We are so grateful for these two and their open, kind hearts who rolled with the tides on their wedding day!

Adam and Jill met through mutual friends after Jill moved to New Mexico from Chicago and after their first date, they knew it was meant to be! Adam proposed to Jill on vacation in Chicago and the rest was history!

On their wedding day it rained, it poured, and then it rained some more, but despite the change of plans Adam and Jill made the day about their love story and their loved ones! Along with her gorgeous Pronovias gown and sweet Kate Spade Keds, Jill’s details were so simple and elegant, yet sooo fun. We adored their framed, glass signage and all of the subtle purple accents these lovers tucked into their day. And can we just say that capturing they romantics was just a dream? We love seeing sweet souls who are so in love where nothing else matters come wedding day! Still over the moon about these two and their love for each other and their families. Congrats Mr. and Mrs. Harrington, we love you guys!!!
