Maddie + Brendan, A Casa Rondena Wedding // Casa Rondena Winery // Los Ranchos, New Mexico

Light rain and a whole lotta love were found at Maddie and Brendan's spectacular wedding celebration. Nestled in the timeless, and insanely beautiful Los Ranchos Winery, Casa Rondena was the perfect backdrop for their classic old-hollywood wedding. Even though the ceremony was moved inside due to the rain, Brendan and Maddie exchanged their trueset and deepest vows, with their closest friends and family circling all around them. The rain didn't stand a chance! 

Brendan and Maddie, getting the opportunity to meet and know both of you and your families was such a delight...  The sincere vows you proclaimed to each other absolutely took my breath away.. thank you for letting me share in your most intimate, beautiful day!

Fatima | Regal Chic Vineyard Bridal Shoot | Casa Rondena | Albuquerque, NM Photography

A couple weeks ago, some of Albuquerque's most lovely and talented vendors got together and created absolute magic. The inspiration came from the timeless trend of illusion lace wedding gowns seen on the runway this season (also seen on Kate Middleton and Kim Kardashian). It was a dream to photograph such a stunning, one of kind piece designed by Jasmine Bridal.

The dress, stunning Fatima, enchanting florals, out of this world beautiful diamonds, then adding a twist of classic yet bold bridal hair & makeup, plus the ever so gorgeous vineyard we shot at and the outcome is absolutely majestic.
