Amy + Craig | Intimate Elopement at Casa Rondena

Amy and Craig found and fell in love with two Airedale terriers at a breeder in New Mexico and were planning to travel to pick the sweet duo up when they decided, what a better time to get married?! Their dear friends live in the Land of Enchantment, and they helped them start the planning process along with finding their beautiful venue: Casa Rondena. We are so glad that they found us as well because Amy has seriously been the sweetest bride in the world to work with!

Traveling from California with her adorable daughter Emma, Amy looked at the weather in Albuquerque the week of her wedding and realized a massive snow storm was planning to infringe on her plans. She quickly adapted and switched to closed toed shoes and found gorgeous white coats for herself and Emma. We also loved Amy's vintage inspired gown paired with her simple yet stunning bouquet of ranunculus and peonies. The couple toyed with the idea of switching the ceremony inside, but with the beauty of the snow-covered stone building and bushes around them, they opted to keep their "I do's" outdoors. We are so glad they did! Their ceremony was so meaningful, as they said their heartfelt vows surrounded by Emma, their close friends, and of course... the two puppies!

Following the ceremony and lots of beautiful photos, everyone continued to Vernons for a delicious intimate dinner.

Congratulations Amy and Craig! We are so happy for you and your little family and wish you many years of happiness!
