Fred and Rafael, Private Residence in Santa Fe, NM

Welcome back #bluerosebeauties, we’ve got a very special #weddingwednesday in store for you today! This next wedding is the type of celebration that makes us so eager to jump on the blog and share, and especially at this time of year when there’s so much to be thankful for. The details are abundant but we think you are going to notice the love in their eyes most of all. Love is love, and there is simply no denying that especially when it comes to Fred & Rafael. And when it comes to weddings that are guaranteed to make you smile, this dapper duo most definitely takes first prize. Kathryn Carson planned this fête to absolute perfection. It was filled with moment after moment of pure, unadulterated HAPPY. Reliving their wedding through this gallery collection reminds us of many warm embraces from friends and family and a palpable feeing of admiration in the air. They had a major floral moment with a beautiful live photo wall and it was unlike anything we’ve ever seen! Imagine an entire wall dripping with orange anthurium, pure white orchids and an explosion of garden roses and peonies. Perfection! The florals didn’t stop there but appeared in every single area of the residence giving the entire space a beautiful aura and even better aroma.  The ceremony + wedding was planned at their private residence in Santa Fe, New Mexico so envision the most charming yet intimate affair and modern southwestern romance at its finest. Our words could never to do this wedding justice so keep scrolling, we’ve captured it in amazing detail. Fred + Rafael thank you from the bottom of our hearts for allowing us to capture such a memorable day, we are so grateful. It was a wedding for the books and one we will never forget!

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!

Family in The Bosque

We LOVE the uniqueness of each and every family we have the pleasure of photographing. Each member has a unique personality, and we love the dynamics when everyone gets together to have a good time. The Holly Family provided the cutest subjects to photograph in The Bosque which always gives the most beautiful light.
