In one of the most unique weddings that we've been lucky enough to be a part of, Chris and Teresa were married at the Albuquerque Railyards in a wedding that was an elegantly industrial display. These lovers met in 2012 in Silicon Valley during a chance encounter at an Irish pub.  Two short years later in 2014, Chris proposed to Teresa during a hot air balloon ride at the Albuquerque International Balloon Fiesta. They even planned for their wedding to be held on the same day as their engagement in 2016.  While this couple used a lot of amazing vendors, they also did a lot of the little details themselves to make their special day that much more amazing! Their wedding was also featured on WeddingWire
