Ryan and Cristina, the most genuine/laid-back lovers on the planet, had the sweetest fall wedding this past October right outside of Albuquerque, NM.
They met in high school (their first moments together involved Ryan copying off of Cristina in Spanish class 😂), but sparks didn’t fly until senior year when Ryan asked Cristina to the homecoming dance. Even though Cristina completely curved Ryan (by rejecting a kiss), he never gave up on chasing her and, after realizing what a total catch this Ryan was, the rest was history! Years later, Ryan proposed to Cristina in their home only a few days after Ryan spent countless hours picking out the perfect ring.
Ryan and Cristina’s wedding at Prairie Star was full of gorgeous views of the majestic Sandia mountains, amazingly personal details (Ryan’s aunt put together all of the stunning florals for this day!), and the best entertainment around from our friends at Cutmaster Music. Cristina made the most beautiful bride with her simple, down to earth style and kind aura. These two had everyone (including all of us) absolutely in tears when they read their own vows and shared personal stories of each other. We loved their totally down-to-party, yet sweet bridal party and had so much fun capturing each of them partying it up the entire night. This wedding was extra special as we got the most amazing and ultra gorgeous, golden-hour romantic shots.
Ryan and Cristina, we’re beyond grateful for you two and this day! Cheers to married life cuties!
