Kylie and Zach, NM Engagement

There’s something about this New Mexico engagement that captured our hearts. Maybe it’s the intimacy between Kylie and Zach as they snuggle in the endless sunbeams, or the way Kylie’s diamonds and turquoise contradict the stark white landscape. Indeed, it could be Zach’s sweet smile when he looks at Kylie.
The wind was raging on this southwest evening. But nature still encouraged these admirers to flaunt their affection—from the dry, wild grass welcoming their steps to the evergreens catching their shadows.
Sometimes love ignites more than intimacy. Scroll through the engagement photos below to see how Zach and Kylie’s warmth ignited the desert sun.

Megan and Christopher, Santa Fe Elopement Wedding

We fell in love with this Santa Fe elopement – its intimacy, the heavy rain clouds, and the bated breath it held for Megan and Christopher. Overcast skies in Santa Fe smell like anticipation; on this day, the anticipation cascaded down through Megan’s long veil and illuminated Christopher’s confident smile. Marisa’s Millefiori florals handsomely complemented the coral-clad bridesmaids and smiling delight twinkled in the eyes of all who attended this beautiful wedding.

Allison and Daniel, Albuquerque NM Wedding

Timeless delicacy touched each detail in this Albuquerque wedding – the lace falling from Allison’s shoulders, the drying ristras keeping endless tradition, and the single white rose pinned to Daniel’s lapel. Their wedding sounded like laughter and confidence as friends and family gathered to support their affectionate transformation into husband and wife. Even the old oak leaves danced in celebration as the New Mexico summer breeze warmly embraced Allison and Daniel.
These two gifted their affection to each other on their wedding day, from the tender way Allison reached for Daniel’s hand and the way it surged through his lips as he kissed her shoulder. Their newlywed joy was contagious and flushed through family and friends in attendance. Their romance is made of pastel roses, Albuquerque sunshine, and unquestioning devotion.
Intricate details aside, the theme of this wedding was unconditional love. Allison’s first look with her father solidified the indestructible foundation of love and support for this couple.
Together they proved love isn’t cancelled. Scroll through their wedding photos below to see how everything fell into place when Allison twirled into Daniel’s arms.

Morgan and Travis, Four Seasons Resort Rancho Encantado Santa Fe

Welcome back Blue Rose Beauties and happy #WeddingWednesday! We woke up with that crisp morning air, early signs of transitioning foliage and a pumpkin spice latte in hand… holy cozy! This next wedding is one we will never forget. We know that this celebration will resonate with all of the couples out there with an intimate guest list but a strong love for the “Art of Celebration”. Morgan & Travis were not afraid to take their own spin on tradition and make the day a reflection of their personal style and we are in awe of all the details and love that they allowed us to capture. This gorgeous bride looked unforgettable in her sage green gown- that color juxtaposed against her fiery red tresses equals pure perfection in our eyes. The ceremony was serene and romantic and Ryan of, Ryan Smith Cello Music, helped create that wonderful ambiance along with a wood burning fire and perhaps the most beautiful view in all of Santa Fe at the Four Seasons Rancho Encantado. The reception was exceptionally detailed and if you have ever experienced a wedding planned by Lauren with Just Lovely or the food and service at the Four Seasons you totally understand what we mean. We loved that the menu featured high end options with New Mexican flavor and that the cake was adorned with real gold flake. Those are the details that will be so memorable to your guests in the years to come. We loved how delicate blooms and lush foliage were perfectly incorporated into all of the arrangements turning a moody color scheme into an elegant, romantic look- Fred with Artichokes & Pomegranates never disappoints! A huge thank you to Morgan & Travis for trusting us to capture this monumental occasion, we are so honored. You both are true gems and we send our best wishes for a lifetime of love & pure bliss.

Lani and Kellen, Albuquerque NM

Welcome back Blue Rose Beauties & happy #WeddingWednesday to you! During these unprecedented times we hope to bring a little inspiration and happiness to your world. It brings us so much joy to be able to look back on the celebrations that we have had the pleasure of being part of and bask in the gloriousness of families coming together to celebrate love. We can’t wait for the dust to settle so that you can get back to planning as usual but in the meantime we will be here to put a smile on your face!

It is not everyday that we get to photograph two different types of wedding ceremonies in one day so this next couple is very near and dear to our hearts. Lani & Kellen’s wedding day last May was one we will never forget! Our bride Lani is a Diné/Filipina from Na’Neelzhiin, NM so its no surprise that their day was steeped in rich tradition and meaningful details. From her unforgettable-traditional blush dress & turquoise squash blossom necklace to her modern white gown and floral crown, Lani was simply stunning on her big day. Both ceremonies and through the entire reception the dapper groom, Kellen, looked at his bride adoringly and our hearts couldn’t have been more full for them. A beautiful wedding vase ceremony and an adorable puppy dog making a cameo down the aisle along with how truly magical the atmosphere felt are just some of the details we will never forget about their wedding day. We know that Kellen & Lani are on the adventure of a lifetime- and we are so honored that they chose us as their photographers to document the beginning of it all. Ok enough talking let the photos that we captured paint the story for you in full. Don’t be shy… get your scroll on with us & feel the love! #NewMexicoTrue
