Sarah and Mitchell's Hacienda Dona Andrea de Santa Fe Wedding | Santa Fe Wedding Photographer

Santa Fe Wedding Photographer at Hacienda Dona Andrea

Sarah and Mitchell were married on June 7th, 2019 at the breathtaking Hacienda Dona Andrea de Santa Fe venue. Congratulations to this wonderful couple! Are you in need of a Santa Fe wedding photographer? Take a look at the amazing photos we captured at Sarah and Mitchell’s wedding to see why we are the best photographers for the job.

Hacienda Dona Andrea is a beautiful little getaway nestled in the mountains of Santa Fe. One of the best parts of being a wedding photographer is being able to take day trips to these enchanting venues. We have several amazing places to choose from here in New Mexico for your wedding day.

Hacienda Dona Andrea is very unique, it’s a southwestern mansion with huge antique doors that welcome you in. The 9 bedroom home was designed to feel like you’re living south of the border with its roof tiles and fixtures. You can tell this venue was designed by an artist who had an eye for detail.

The massive wooden doors were a superb backdrop for many beautiful shots of the bride. The wooden beams, chile ristras, and trees adorning the outside area created a magical atmosphere for a perfect wedding day.

The bride wore a simple, elegant wedding gown with a long train. She topped the look off with a long veil hanging from her pinned up jet black hair. Sarah looked absolutely stunning, I’m honored to have been able to capture the beauty of her special day.

The groom was smitten by his newlywed wife, and who can blame him?? But, he too was looking debonair in his fitted blue suit with a white tie. These two were great “models” and really could have been featured on a wedding magazine, in fact, we tried to put them on one. Thank you Sarah and Mitchell, for making my job easy!

Though the bride and groom were amazing to photograph, it really does take an eye for detail, lighting, and experience to capture stunning photos like these. Make sure you set aside a budget for your wedding photographer, these are special moments and you only get one chance to capture them. If you’re still wondering what all the rave is about for Lauren Cherie Photography, head on over to our wedding gallery. Our work speaks for itself. We take pride in always striving for the best photography experience for our clients.

We’d be honored to capture breathtaking photos of your special day too! Book your wedding with us early so we can get you on our calendar.

Make sure you congratulate the newlywed couple in the comments below! Breanna and James were married at Noah’s Event Venue on June 23rd, 2019. This cozy wedding venue has high ceilings and nice wooden floors which open up the space for an impressive wedding.

The wedding couple took full advantage of the high ceilings in this space by draping the ceiling with white fabric and twinkling lights. This came out so magically in their wedding photography. Noah’s Event Venue is a versatile event space, we’ve held several of our kid’s birthday parties here ourselves.

One thing that really sets Noah’s apart from other event venues is their open-vendor policy, which allows you to choose your own caterer, decorator, and other vendors for your wedding.

Mrs. Vargas looked magical in her strapless flowing wedding gown. She kept her hair simple, wearing it down underneath her veil. Breanna’s bridesmaids wore magenta dresses, each featuring a different style top. The best woman stood out with a flowy lilac dress.

The groom looked very handsome in a dark blue suit with a blue bowtie that stood out from the groomsmen’s blue ties.

The wedding flowers were simple elegant white flowers with green foliage. The colors in this wedding each complimented each other for beautiful wedding photographs.

The red clay brick with differentiating hues of burgundy and brown gave us a great canvas for outdoor shots of the wedding party. The windows were flawlessly clean and everything down to the light fixtures was high quality for excellent wedding pictures.

Hotel Albuquerque Wedding Photography and Wedding Inspiration

Old Town Albuquerque, New Mexico has quite a few gems for the ultimate wedding. If you’re looking for wedding inspiration, you’re in the right place. Take a look at the beautiful venue and the amazing themed wedding this couple had. Hotel Albuquerque is an alluring venue with many different options for the perfect wedding you’ve always dreamed of.

Hotel Albuquerque has many options that cater to weddings from small and intimate to huge guest lists. They also have their very own breathtaking chapel. They are located in Old Town Albuquerque, New Mexico, which means you are sure to get that southwestern style.

This Spring wedding had a tropical theme that was so refreshing in the middle of our desert heat. They accented the tables with big palm leaves, featured lilies in all of the boutiques and had the groom wear a long tropical fern leaf lei. All they were missing was the beach!

The bride was absolutely gorgeous wearing an off-the-shoulder lace wedding dress with an updo adorned with lillies. Her husband-to-be looked striking in his black suit and dress shoes with a periwinkle tie that matched the bridesmaid’s dresses.

The lush green landscaping at Hotel Albuquerque really set off the couple’s tropical themed wedding. The wedding photography amongst all the greenery really makes you feel as if they were somewhere tropical. Their vision was brought to life through their wedding portraits, which is hard to do in a dry desert. Of course, if you have the right photographer we can make magic happen!

Periwinkle blue seems to be the “in” color for bridesmaid dresses in 2019. The great thing about this color is that it works for any season! You can pair it with warm colors for Fall and Winter, bright colors for Summer and pastels in Spring. Periwinkle blue is quite versatile, no wonder brides are picking this color for their 2019 weddings.

The groomsmen also looked strikingly handsome in their matching groomsmen outfits with periwinkle blue ties. The entire wedding party looked amazing! This made my job as a wedding photographer a lot easier. I had a wonderful canvas to work with.
