Sylvia and RonLarry, Hacienda Dona Andrea De Santa Fe

Puppies, pops of jewel tones and vitality, and perfectly curated southwestern details – oh my! It’s our favorite day of the week Blue Rose babes (#WeddingWednesday of course), and this time around we’re so full of love, our hearts might actually explode. If you’re a fan of New Mexico’s rich, layered history, or sweeping proclamations of devotion, or furry friends in weddings – your heart might just burst as well. So, if you’re ready to get lost in a world of love, grab a cup of calming tea and join us while we revisit Sylvia and RonLarry’s celebration!

Held by the esteemed Hacienda Doña Andrea, Sylvia and RonLarry began the newest chapter of their life together surrounded by traditional architecture and ancient details. Complimented by vibrant reds in the gowns, floral arrangements, and decor, the day rounded out to be completely unforgettable. From tiny potted cacti, to the bridesmaids and flower girl’s gowns, each little corner was bursting with personality and life — perfect for a couple whose love is just as passionate and alive!

The combination of old world and new love carries on — Sylvia’s stunning and modern lace gown was donned with coordinated with cowboy boots. RonLarry’s sleek blue attire mirrored the traditionally exquisite New Mexican sky and popped against their outdoor backdrop with the addition of a deep red bowtie. Framed by a magnificently cloudless and sunny day, the couple said their I-do’s on Hacienda Doña Andrea’s grand patio in the company of their family, friends, loved ones, and favorite furry companion!

We love New Mexico, we love weddings, and we love love most of all. Sylvia and RonLarry’s celebration brought all of our very favorites things together, and was an unparalleled honor to bear witness to. Thank you for allowing the #BlueRose team capture each perfect detail!

Lauren and Charles, Loretto Chapel

Welcome back to Blue Rose beauties! #WeddingWednesday is always a call for celebration here in our little corner of the internet, but you know our love for New Mexico weddings isn’t confined by a single day! How could it be, when every famed sunrise in our gorgeous state gives us new inspiration by being the first day of a couple’s new life together?!

The sun peeking up on the morning of Charles and Lauren’s new adventure was definitely no exception. We’re still eagerly awaiting the sunshine and blooms of a southwestern spring here, of course, but in the meantime, we’re cozying up to the fond memories of their intimate day. Held by the old-world architecture of the Loretto Chapel in Santa Fe, Lauren and Charles pledged their boundless love for each other in just each other’s company.

Now, we would die for a grand, 300-people, bustling celebration just as much as the next wedding lovers, but this elopement? Absolutely stole our hearts. Delicate gold detailing throughout the holy sanctuary complimented the lace appliqué of Lauren’s gown, shining alongside her newlywed glow. With Charles in a perfectly tailored suit of grey, the couple created a shimmering little universe to say their I Do’s in — one we’ll be dreaming of forever. And how could we not?! Being there to capture every moment from the sun’s first bean through the stained glass windows, to the last second when Lauren and Charles sped off into the distance in a sleek vintage town car was the honor of a lifetime.

So get comfy! We’re bringing you with us as we relive the unforgettable magic of this day — grab a cup of tea and you can too.

Jonathan and Rebbekah, Eldorado Hotel & Spa

Happy New Year! It’s officially 2020 AND #WeddingWednesday- coincidence? I think not! Blue Rose Beauties, you are going to want to get cozy because we have major heart eyes for our next couple on the blog and we know you will too. Rebbekah and Jonathan look like they were plucked right out of a bridal fashion magazine- they make this whole wedding thing look GOOD! And if you are on the hunt for some wedding inspiration that blends boho with moody and timeless elegance… look no further… this couple basically invented it. You don’t often see the words moody, and boho strung together, but that’s why we love this wedding so much. It is so refreshing to see couples fully embrace their personal style and weave it into their celebration. Picture it, impeccable desert mountain views and air plants galore, mixed with a moody-vintage reception vibe. This day was pure wedding day bliss and it’s safe to say we’re obsessed. The bride wore a breathtaking lace gown- the bodice donned the most beautiful and delicate adornments that accentuated her silhouette in the most lovely way. Rebbekah’s contagious smile lit up every photo captured, while her groom, dapper as one can possibly get, exuded a sense of profound admiration for her throughout the day. We could have taken 1 million photos and each and every one would have captured a moment worth treasuring. This beautiful couple, inside and out, made our job easy. They were up for taking the time to roam the grounds of Eldorado to let us capture their love in every nook imaginable and that’s a photographers dream after all! What wasn’t easy, was tailoring a selection of some of our favorite photos of their day for you to enjoy- so many to choose from! But alas, we’ve done it so please stay a while and start your decade off in the right direction. R+J if you are reading this, thank you for trusting us with your wedding day- it was an honor to be there and witness it all first hand. We are sending you many wishes for a lifetime of happiness + unrelenting joy. Cheers!

Emma and Aaron, La Fonda on the Plaza

Happy #WeddingWednesday and welcome back Blue Rose Beauties! What happens when you mix the most amazingly sweet couple with a classically iconic color palette? Pure, unadulterated – wedding magic, of course! You must know how much we love La Fonda on the Plaza weddings by now and this next celebration of Aaron and Emma totally reaffirms that love. When it comes to tying the knot, we are sure that nothing could tell their love story better than the natural beauty of Santa Fe, New Mexico. This area is home to some of the state’s most breathtaking wedding venues and might we add, the most talented wedding professionals ever! The iconic color palette of white, ivory, cream, and muted blush was incorporated into everything from the table design to the floral arrangements. The masterminds at Floriography Flowers brought this bride’s neutral color palette to life with just the right touches of texture and flair. Have you ever seen cotton incorporated into a bouquet? Yes we said cotton! This bountiful bouquet is unlike anything we’ve seen before and needless to say we are living for all of it. Looking back at this idyllic ceremony at the Cathedral, her iconic lace dress and all the details in-between has us feeling so nostalgic. We feel beyond honored to have lived this magical day first hand at a wedding where you could literally feel the elegance and love radiating through the rooftops. We were there to capture the beauty of the day as the couple exchanged vows surrounded by close friends and family, now we hope you will stay with us a while and watch it unfold, all over again.
