Randy + Danielle, a Desert Engagement

Randy and Danielle might not be getting married until next year (June 2020) but we can’t help but gush over these two and their incredible sweet love story.

After meeting through mutual friends, these two hung out for the first time at Austin City Limits and immediately hit it off after a weekend of amazing music. And even though they lived in different cities (Randy in Houston and Danielle in Austin) these two made it work and eventually decided to officially call Austin home.

Between being the coolest couple around (they love doing everything and anything outdoors) and having two of the cutest fur babies on the planet (Autumn and Jude), they’re also major couple goals. Along with having fun together (playing Mario Kart and watching Game of Thrones), these two speak each other’s love languages perfectly — Danielle loves how supportive and caring Randy is (he washes her car every Saturday and always remembers to snag macaroons from her fave bakery— insert all the heart eyes) and Randy loves how Danielle is so loving in the way that she always puts others first.

We can’t wait for their Santa Fe celebration at La Fonda on the Plaza next summer, bring on the party babes!

Wedding Inspo - Wedding Reception Centerpieces

One look at any of our social media sites and you’ll know how obsessed our little team is with florals, but we’re also in love with how our couples, planners, and florists design and create floral centerpieces. Bright, bold, and larger than life summer florals give us just as much joy as the the simple, subdued succulent adorned centerpieces. Every wedding brings its own flavor and we can’t get enough of these reception beauties!

Jason + Natalie, a White Sands Engagement

When Jason and Natalie said they were down to adventure with us to White Sands National Monument we just knew how much fun this couple would be to capture!

Long before these Chicago sweethearts journeyed to our Southwestern haven, they actually met in the most modern way, on a dating app. And even though Natalie cancelled on Jason THREE times before their official first date, these two realized they were meant to be after an 8 hour date walking along Lake Michigan! Over three years, and one adorable fur baby names Bartlet, later these two are ready to make it a forever thing!

If their blend of genuine love (just look at the way they look at each other) and divine style (we have major heart eyes over Natalie’s couture gown) isn’t enough to completely enthrall you, Jason and Natalie are throwing an incredible Southwestern, boho-inspired bash at La Fonda on the Plaza this October!

Trey + Clara, a Southern New Mexico Wedding

This year our team was lucky enough to kick off wedding season with Trey + Clara, two of the kindest, most genuine, downright in love babes around. From their sweet little love story to their glorious spring wedding in Southern New Mexico, everything about these two is absolute perfection.

Even though they initially met in high school in their hometown of Las Cruces, NM, Trey and Clara didn’t hit it off until years later during college. Clara was at home visiting from college in Colorado when she ran into Trey at a local bar and (in true millennial fashion) the next day Trey slid into her DMs to ask Clara out on an official date. After two hour coffee date, these two were smitten with each other. Trey surprised Clara by visiting her in Colorado just three days after she went back (#boyfriendgoals). These two have been together ever since and made it last name official this spring!

Trey and Clara got married on a gorgeous family property in San Patricio, NM surrounded by about 300 of their favorite family members and friends. We adored the down to earth, yet amazingly classic style of this wedding. From the pretty mix-and-match periwinkle blue bridesmaid dresses to Clara’s stunning bridal hair and makeup (major model glam), to the dreamiest Justin Alexander wedding gown, all of the bridal details from this day had us head over heels. Not to mention, Trey and Clara found the perfect place to take their romantics (the Peter Hurd Guesthouse). This crazy little property was a wedding photogs dream, with everything from a tiny greenhouse to a lovely white gazebo to the most perfect pink adobe walls. We’re not sure that we’ve completely recovered from being absolutely smitten with this day and these lovers!

TBH we’ll probably never stop daydreaming about Trey + Clara’s wedding, so cheers to the best day to start off the 2019 wedding season!

Real Weddings - Borrowed and Blue

Love stories are by far one of our favorite things on the planet, but what we adore a little extra is the history and love behind the couples we get to capture. Every single wedding brings a new story and lots of exciting touches, especially when it comes to the “somethings” of wedding days. From dainty vintage rings passed down through generations that brides have as their “something old” to stellar veils from a loved one as “something borrowed” to discrete turquoise and navy shoes as “something blue”, our brides never fail to wow us with their extremely personal, unique, and downright beautiful details. We loved the stories behind these amazing little touches as much as we loved seeing them in person!!
