Glenn + Kalie, a Four Hills Backyard Wedding Albuquerque, NM

A blog preview of the most tender and sweetest celebration of all, Glenn and Kalie's wedding! I'm absolutely smitten with backyard weddings, and this one was no exception...

Tons of sweet rustic details like the custom wood signage, baby's breath and mason jars.. It was the perfect representation of Glenn and Kalie's simple but sweet personalities. Their day was complete with bright blue skies for the ceremony, a nice overcast for their portraits, and the perfect drizzle during the reception! 

They were so happy and so in love, it was truly incredible to witness! Glenn and Kalie, your day was amazing, thank you for letting me be a part of it! I’m so excited to share my favorite images from their perfect wedding day! Cheers to the newlyweds!

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.

Mr. & Mrs. Salazar | Albuquerque Wedding | Alicia Lucia Photography

April showers truly brought May flowers.. After a couple weeks of wind & rain, the weather could not have been more perfect for the joyous wedding of Amy & Lucas. It was the most beautiful day in May so far. Along with the perfect weather was the perfect bride... Amy absolutely glistened the.entire.day. The internal love that she has for Lucas just poured out of her... And along with that radiating smile, her gorgeous gown from Ann Matthews, stunning bouquet by Peoples flowers down to the most perfect bridal makeup by The Pretty Committee, it was seriously difficult for anyone to not admire her beauty as a blushing bride. 

The dynamic emotions shared throughout the day were sincerely remarkable. It is always touching to see and capture groom's showing their truest sentiments on the day of their wedding, but the moment when Lucas got a first glance of the love of his life walking down the aisle & just absolutely broke down, there was honestly no dry eye in sight. 

Thank you Amy & Lucas for the opportunity of capturing you on your most beautiful day. The love you both share, dazzles everyone around you & I know 50 years from now you will continue to inspire us with your dedicated commitment and love for each other.
