Taking place just outside of quiet Mountainair New Mexico, this highly anticipated wedding inside the ancient Quarai Mission Ruins was nothing short of breathtaking. It was a surreal feeling to look around and wonder what the different marriage ceremony’s have looked like through the centuries. I got goosebumps as I was standing in the middle of priceless history listening while Kyle and Monica’s heart felt vows, filled with laughter and happy tears, echoed off the pueblos.
The day was chalked full of photographer lovin’ content…sweet moments shared with friends and family, hand written love letters and endless decor details! It was obvious that there was much planning and care went into the preparation of this special day.
I feel like I say this so many times a day and on every blog post I write, but it really no small honor when a couple chooses to entrust me to tell the story of their wedding day. The newly weds and the people they surround themselves with, were an absolute joy to work with and yet another example of why I love what I get to call my “job!”
Ps. If you enjoy the classy style of their wedding, you may enjoy Kyle and Monica’s ranch engagement session that we did earlier this year!
