Kelly and Anthony | An Elegant Wedding at Hotel Albuquerque

Kelly and Anthony were married at the beautiful Hotel Albuquerque on a warm summer day. We loved that they designed their ceremony to be set up completely different from any other wedding we've seen there. Also, instead of a unity candle or sand ceremony, Kelly and Anthony had a Balloon Release Ceremony. They locked two locks together, and tied the keys to balloons, which they released to symbolize that they are locked together for life. Anthony dipped his bride as he kissed her for the first time as husband and wife, resulting in one of the cutest first kisses ever.

The groomsmen donned light grey suits, and the bridesmaids were adorned in different shades of dusty blue and Kelly gifted her bridesmaids stunning silver and blue earrings to match that came in adorable macaroon shaped boxes. We loved the touches of blue in every aspect of the wedding. From the dresses, to the table runners, the color added a sense of elegance.

Kelly poured her heart into her wedding decor. Making the seating chart and escort cards, the adorable hand lettered signs, and assembling the favors, she made sure her wedding was straight out of Pinterest dreams.

Decorated in bistro lights, the reception took place under a canopy of greenery to set the mood for a romantic evening. There was a separate kids table with arts and crafts and all you can eat pizza, as well as yard games such as Cornhole for the kids and maybe some of the adults. :-)

Kelly and Anthony were so in love and gracious to everyone who attended their wedding. They gifted coffee beans and honey to their guests, and made sure they had a good time. They poured out gratitude to everyone who was a part of their day and we were so honored to have been their to capture their story. Congrats lovebirds!
