Enchanted wedding in the Land of Enchantment

Alayna and Pierce wanted a destination wedding that was close to their hearts, so they chose to return to the bride’s native state of New Mexico. Their wedding was a celebration of family and close friends hosted at the Four Seasons Encantado, one of the top Santa Fe wedding venues known for it’s relaxed, elegant environment. The rain broke just in time for a stunning ceremony outside, followed by cocktails in the Terra Courtyard, and later dinner and dancing in the Aspen Ballroom. At the end of dinner, the couple snuck away for a few photos atop the mesa during the spectacular sunset. New Mexico’s weather provides an incredible back drop most days and this day was no exception! Thank you for sharing your beautiful Santa Fe wedding with me and I wish you both happiness and joy in your new life together.

Forget about Hawaii, let’s get married in New Mexico!

Lush Outdoor Wedding in Santa Fe, New Mexico
Most couples go to Hawaii to get married, but Kim and Kevin left the islands behind to get married in the Land of Enchantment! Kevin is a New Mexico native and Kim is a California girl, so it made sense for this couple to come back to the mainland for their nuptials. Their ceremony and wedding celebration was hosted at a generous friend’s private ranch in Santa Fe. It was an absolutely gorgeous outdoor ceremony and the couple’s little boy stole the show as they exchanged vows underneath the cottonwood trees. One of my favorite things about Kevin and Kim is their ability to make each other laugh. That’s why you see them smiling, laughing and cracking each other up in so many of their photos. Clearly they bring each other joy! Congrats to you both and thanks for allowing me to share in your happiness!

The Amazing Wedding of Jessica and Isaac

La Posada Wedding, Santa Fe, New Mexico

Jessica and Isaac live in Rio Rancho, a suburb of Albuquerque, New Mexico but fell in love with the idea of getting married in Santa Fe. It was such a sweet spring wedding and Jessica and Isaac are one of the most loving couples I have ever met. New Mexico has already had so much rain this year, and their wedding day was no exception but fortunately the weather held for their outdoor ceremony!

La Posada de Santa Fe is one of my favorite Santa Fe wedding venues. It has such elegant indoor spaces and the property is covered in gardens and incredible landscaping that make it a dream for this photographer to work with brides and grooms on their wedding day.

Emily + Jordan – Santa Fe, New Mexico Wedding

“…the kingdom of heaven is like a merchant in search of fine pearls, who, on finding one pearl of great value, went and sold all that he had and bought it.” No doubt, Emily and Jordan have each found their pearl.
