Styled Sunday - Rocky Mountain Bride at Los Poblanos

As all of our friends know, we are huge fangirls of Los Poblanos Historic Inn and Organic Farm, our favorite little Albuquerque gem tucked away in the gorgeous North Valley. So when the amazing gals at Rocky Mountain Bride reached out and asked us to capture a new wedding feature for Los Poblanos, we were over the moon!

At the end of last October, we teamed up with some of our favorite vendor besties and made major magic happen right at the peak of fall. We even convinced two of our fave, real-life sweethearts, Carolyn and Paul, to dress up as our bride and groom for the day. Amid the stunning fall foliage, impeccable planning and details came together for one of the craziest, most amazing days ever! We shot a dreamy three day wedding weekend including an insanely yummy welcome brunch and game of bocce ball on day one, followed by bike rides and drink tasting for the boys and flower crown making for the girls on day two, and then the gorgeous, intimate wedding on the final day of festivities.

We were soooo thrilled to be a part of this stunner of a shoot, cheers to many more whimsical, incredible days like this one!!!

Styled Sunday - Desert Lovers

This fall, we asked one of our fan favorite couples, Dillon and Stephanie, to adventure with us into the New Mexico desert for some golden hour magic with a handful of extremely talented vendors. From the stunning florals the gals over at Renegade Floral brought, to Hello Jori’s delicate hand-lettering, to Emerald Pie Bakery’s sweet little personalized macaroons and pies, we were in heaven for one brief little evening.

Besides having amazing style, these lovers even brought their sweet pup Penny along and we were beyond thrilled to capture this sweet little family together! Here’s to more incredible twilight moments with gorgeous couples and stunning details!

Styled Sunday - an Eldorado Hotel Wedding with Rocky Mountain Bride

Last year, we embarked on an incredible journey with Rocky Mountain Bride through the eclectic, enchanting hallways of Eldorado Hotel and Spa. From start to finish, Eldorado Hotel captivates at every turn with the perfect blend of traditional Santa Fe style and modern elegance.

We started this amazing day in the airy bridal suite adjacent to Eldorado’s chapel. Broad skylights and expansive space make this prep area an absolute dream for brides and photographers alike. Next we were enchanted by Eldorado’s simple, yet incredibly enchanting chapel, La Capilla de Oro. Inspired by Spanish colonial art, the gold gilded alter of La Capilla de Oro is perfect for any wedding and stands out beautifully against the pure white walls of this little ceremony space. Paired with vintage Elipale chairs and stellar greenery, this alter was fit for royalty!

Our dreamy bride and groom also roamed through the colorful rooms and hallways of Casa España where they were treated to cocktails and appetizers at an incredibly vibrant bar. And finally, we capped off this perfect day with a reception on Eldorado’s rooftop. Overlooking the iconic Santa Fe Plaza and with an incredible view of the Sangre de Cristo mountains, Eldorado’s sky-high patio is the perfect place to finish off an amazing wedding.

From Magnolia Event Company’s brilliant design plan to our bride’s delicate Lea-Ann Belter gown to Rocky Mountain Bride pulling everything together, this sublime day made us fall in love with Eldorado Hotel all over again.

This dream of a day was also published by Rocky Mountain Bride in 2017

Styled Sunday - a Ghost Ranch Vow Renewal

When it comes to the Southwest, there is simply nothing more magical than a glowing twilight evening at Ghost Ranch in Abiquiu, New Mexico.  Bold hints of turquoise, soft dusty rose hues, and ethereal touches of cream make the perfect color palette for an romantic, authentic evening in the desert. Set amid the dramatic backdrop of New Mexico's expansive mountains and never-ending plains, this perfectly intimate, family-centered evening is complimented by Mother Nature's Southwest region. From lush adornments of  pampas grass to the burning of Palo Santo to indulgent Zapoteca drinking chocolate, this vow renewal is anything but ordinary. Welcome to an evening of all things extraordinary.
