We met these two cuties back in September of 2020 for their engagement session (see their adorable photos here) and have enjoyed getting to know them ever since! For their wedding day, we knew they were going to be just so affectionate and giggly— all the ingredients that make for romantic, dreamy photos!
Come the big day, Hannah and Sarah met the absolutely stunning bride in her suite at the Sandia Casino and proceeded with getting ready photos until it was time to head to the Church of the Incarnation. The spacious white walls ornamented by the blue ceiling made for a gorgeous indoor ceremony spot, and Christian's reaction to his bride coming down the aisle melted our hearts! By the end of the ceremony, the couple had Christian's grandfather's '57 Bel Air brought around so that they could drive it away from the church and their guests for couple's portraits. This was particularly special to them, as Christian's grandpa had passed away not even two months prior to their big day. In a way, he was there with them still, and we were more than enthusiastic to help capture that touching moment for them!
After amazing bridal party and couple's portraits in the Bosque (seriously, you need to see these bridal party shots! Particularly the ones of Kassy with the groomsmen! haha), we then met the group back at Sandia Casino for the reception! With an incredible backdrop for their sweetheart table— including a neon sign of their name!— and a delicious donut wall, photo-booth with great props, they were set for toasts and all the ensuing fun activities. And the bar? It had the cutest digital art of the couple's doggos, with the special cocktails named after them! Sunset pictures were a breeze, as it's easy to get jaw-dropping mountain shots on Sandia's golf course, and we love how appropriately watermelon-pink the mountains turned for these two. The night ended with a sparkler exit, and we couldn't be happier with how the day turned out!
Congratulations to you both, and we wish you years upon years of marital bliss!
