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!

Nikki And Ethan, Hotel Albuquerque at Old Town

It’s #WeddingWednesday and we are so ready to celebrate by highlighting a very special couple that have touched our hearts immensely! Typically we like to start off our blog posts by stating our thoughts about the special couple that we have had the pleasure of working with and their union but alas we have stumbled upon the most beautifully written excerpt that perfectly encapsulates their love story and who are we to re-imagine such a masterpiece?! Get comfy, give it a read and then enjoy some of the most magical wedding day photos ever. You can literally feel the warmth radiating from these images! We feel so lucky to have been there to capture it all and we can’t even begin to comprehend the journey that these two are in for. We will be there cheering them on all the way…

We began our story after meeting online in January 2016 and hilarity immediately ensued. Our first date was at an ice cream shop in Brooklyn. Nikki, just recently moving to Brooklyn to escape the hustle and bustle of Manhattan, thought there was only one Ample Hill Creamery location and ended up at the wrong one. After realizing the snafu (via a series of very confused text messages), we successfully met and Ethan remembers vividly how fast his heart was racing when a gorgeous, stylish Nikki walked through the door! From that moment we have not been able to get enough of each other, going on 5 more dates in the next two weeks. Nikki knew this would be something special after our spontaneous third date where we enjoyed brunch and a long walk around Dumbo, Brooklyn which fittingly saw us get caught in the rain. While Nikki remembers being sopping wet with her makeup running and still feeling like the most beautiful girl to Ethan (which is still how he makes her feel today), Ethan remembers not having any clue that her makeup was running because he was too busy smiling like an idiot at her while hoping that their walk would never end.

What we love most about each other is our ability to openly and honestly communicate; because of that, we work well as a team, deeply respect each other and have come to learn that when the going gets tough we can unflinchingly rely on one another. We have an unshakeable deep and loving bond and are thrilled to unite together for life.

Our adventures have taken us all over the globe, through leaking roofs and career pitfalls, into two apartments, and (barely) through two trips to Ikea. We’ve been to Paris, Spain, Nice, Cannes, Cancun, Copenhagen, Costa Rica, Reno, San Francisco, and so many more places – but to this day we talk about how unbelievably lucky we were to both be in Brooklyn in January 2016…

Ana And Joseph, Event Center at Sandia Golf Club

Ana and Joseph, quite possibly two of the kindest and most genuine people to ever exist, happened to find themselves in the right place at the right time and in the midst of a real life love story. The universe conspired for them to be together and everything fell into place leaving them no choice but to celebrate in perhaps the most beautiful fashion ever, surrounded by those they love most. If you’re on team classic, rustic, burgundy & rose gold you might want to go ahead and grab a nice warm cup of coffee or tea, get your pinterest finger ready, and settle in for a while because this next wedding will have your cozy heart and pinterest boards overflowing with love and inspiration.

The bride and groom exchanged vows under the big, beautiful, New Mexican sky with the Sandia Mountains and their nearest and dearest standing witness. Their beloved Bently the Shih Tzu and Bebe the Yorkie made sure to anchor them in love as the hustle and bustle of the day unfolded and they did it in impeccable style- they totally get our vote for best dressed of the day! Guests took their seats at tables adorned with monochromatic – delicate blooms and rustic details while the entire space was surrounded by romantic drapery and chic tones that made for a sweepingly beautiful look. Lauren Landavazo and the staff at The Event Center at Sandia Golf Club made sure this day was beyond breathtaking yet effortlessly intimate all wrapped up into one. See it unfold, we’ve captured it all in stunning detail for you below…

Megan And Kevin, Historic Farmhouse

Megan and Kevin first met during their sophomore year of college in a science class and let’s just say the “chemistry” didn’t end there. Fast forward to April of 2019, these “university” sweethearts took a giant leap of faith into their forever and it was glorious to say the very least. Picture it- a beautiful spring day, surrounded by friends and family at one of the most elegant, historic spaces, in all of Albuquerque. The Dietz Farms is a private space and served as the perfect, tucked-away backdrop for a day that looks like it was plucked right out of a fairytale. No detail was overlooked and we wouldn’t expect anything less especially with Just Lovely Wedding + Event Planning behind the wheel, working her magic!

Scrolling these photos again today, I had a few moments of raw reflection (and some happy tears). On the outside, you’ll see gorgeous images of a lovely couple but the true beauty lies within with these two. My theory is that the contagious smiles and sheer happiness seen here is cultivated from a profound sense of contentment. It’s the feeling of being at home no matter where you are in the world because you finally have YOUR person- the feeling that comes when you find the one whom your soul truly loves at last. We feel so lucky to fall witness to such profound love especially the kind that Megan & Kevin share- we have been so delighted to re-live this momentous occasion and bask in it. We hope you’ll do the same and spend a little time with us and this gorgeous gallery.

PS. In case you needed one more reason to scroll, the world’s CUTEST pup makes many debuts below- it’s worth your time, we promise!
