Jessica + Nathaniel | Elegant White Wedding at Hyatt Regency Downtown | Albuquerque Wedding Photogra

Jessica and Nathaniel started as a work place romance. The two had many mutual friends and interests, and as they got to know each other more, they really hit it off. After they began dating they began going on many adventures together. They loved to travel and Nathaniel decided the perfect time to propose would be on one of their ventures. On their trip to Iceland, Nathaniel told Jessica that he wanted to take a photo of her on the black sand beaches. While her back was turned, he got down on one knee and asked her to turn back around. And then their greatest adventure yet, began.

They planned their wedding at the Hyatt in Downtown Albuquerque. Jessica wanted an elegant wedding and the Hyatts White Ceremony room and ballrooms were the obvious choice. Jessica's details were all beautifully modern as her ring, her invites, and even her shoes spoke of class and elegance.

Jessica wore a ballgown dress with an illusion neckline and a gorgeous lace train. Her long blonde hair was worn in loose waves pinned back by babies breath while her cathedral length veil brought a soft touch or whimsy to her romantic look. Her bridesmaids wore pink gowns to match the blush and rose colors of their bouquets.

Their ceremony was decorated with large pillars of roses, daisies, and greenery to really center the space where the two would say their vows. Nathaniel's face lit up as he saw his bride for the first time walking down the aisle accompanied by both of her parents. The same flowers that decorated the ceremony echoed into the reception where they topped each table, gathered about their naked wedding cake, and decorated the wall where their guests would take photos for the guest book. We loved all the small details like the couples engagement photos on display, the guest book of polaroids, the party favors, the dessert bar of their favorite snacks, and everything in between.

The reception hall, decorated by Occasions Services and Events, featured white fabric draping from the ceiling in romantic arches which carried the theme or modern elegance and classic romance through the entire space.

The head table where the couple and their bridal party sat, stood elevated in order to give the newly weds a chance to be able to see all their friends and family. They sat in front of a white dance floor where the party never stopped.

We loved how Jessica and Nathaniel combined their two heritages by including foods and snacks from both backgrounds, music from both languages, and the way the families all sat together.

it was a truly special sight to see. We can't say enough good things about this stunning wedding, and the stunning couple who it was for. Congratulations again Jessica and Nathaniel! We wish you so much happiness!
