Caley And James, Loretto Chapel

Do you ever look at a couple and think wow those two are going to have one interesting, lively, hilarious life together? That’s the exact sentiment that I had in my heart while choosing highlights to show you from their perfectly planned celebration. This gorgeous summer day in sweet ole Santa Fe New Mexico is everything classic wedding dreams are made of. The bride was an absolute vision donning an elegant lace wedding gown while her delicate bouquet, adorned with beautiful anemones and garden roses by Artichoke and Pomegranates, was the perfect floral accessory to match. James is in the running for our most dapper groom of the year and was channeling major James Bond vibes. For this Mr. and Mrs, spending their day walking into their forever in a modern, yet timeless chapel and venue with lots of natural lighting and endless photo opportunities was always written in the cards and that is exactly what they found at Loretto Chapel and La Fonda on the Plaza.

#WeddingWednesday is in full effect and has me smiling from ear to ear, capture after capture, because the connection that Caley and James share is not only electric but their playfulness is palpable and IMO that might be the most endearing quality when it comes to romance. Joanne Woodward said, “Sexiness wears thin after a while and beauty fades, but to be married to a man who makes you laugh every day, ah, now that’s a real treat.” We couldn’t agree more Joanne! There were lots of laughs but also lots of profound emotions floating around on this wedding day, just wait until you see the groom’s face when he catches that first glimpse of his bride coming down the aisle… oh my gosh our hearts! So many beautiful things to witness with these two and we hope you will grab some tissue, get cozy, get your scrolling finger and relive this beautiful day with us….

Kelly And Lisa, Los Poblanos Historic Inn & Organic Farm

Set amongst 25 acres of lavender fields, enormous cottonwood trees and lush formal gardens, the existence of Los Poblanos Historic Inn & Organic Farm basically radiates with historical significance. Su Casa Magazine said, “one could spend a lifetime at Los Poblanos and never fall out of love.” and that embodies our sentiment exactly especially when it comes to the wedding of Lisa + Kelly. It’s never lost on us how incredibly lucky we are to able to experience and share love stories like that of these two. It’s a wonderful honor and when you have Floriography- Luxe Floristry and Amy Gallegos with For The Love Events behind the floral, design and coordination helm- it’s truly like hitting a wedding jackpot. These professionals have much of their own history weaved into Los Poblanos. They know the space, the history, the land and all of its quirks and highlights like the back of their hardworking- chicly manicured hands. They know which florals will perfectly accent the ambiance, they know the precise patterns to bring out the radiance of the historical heirlooms- and it shows. Hand lettered terra-cotta place cards, vintage depressed glass goblets, linen napkins and florals that will give you goosebumps- let’s just say these ladies styled this wedding to perfection.

If you love weddings layered with florals, a delicate palette, a feeling of warmth that pours from every image where the sun is shining, the smiles and love are overflowing and the details are unfussy and sophisticated then you might want to stay a while…

Fair warning, their love radiates, glows and shines through each capture. Their ceremony will make your heart swell and their smiles will light you up. The fete that Lisa and Kelly dreamed up, with this famously beautiful backdrop, will have you believing in the full majesty of love- we can promise you that!
