Laurie and Alan (Soshie too!)
From the moment I arrived in my room and I was greeted with a cute gift bag, Laurie and Alan had every detail planned for a beautiful day. Saturday morning we met up for a quick lunch and then were off for some pictures in town. Downtown Santa Fe is an amazing little city with some really cool architecture. I don't usually have this much time to do portraits of the bride and groom (and with such a cute couple!) so it was a real treat.
It was time for us to leave for the ceremony - of course not without a quick stop back at the hotel to get Laurie and Alan's beloved dog, Soshie. I've met some cool doggies before, but this little guy was the BEST. He hung out all day with us and was the best model! :)
The reception was held at the top of the Eldorado Hotel. What a perfect backdrop to the perfect day! The sun setting over the mountains was stunning end to a beautiful day....but wait there's more!
After dinner we walked across the street to the beautiful Georgia O'keefe Museum for dessert and dancing. With colors matching of one of Georgia's paintings (if you know the name of the painting please leave a comment!), the new bride and groom cut their cake. Please note I must give credit for one of the cake shots to their friend Amanda. Colin was busy readying the slideshow so I asked if she wanted to help. :) She hesitated at first when I handed her my other camera, but took the great shot of them kissing. Nice job Amanda!
As they danced the night away, the moon rose across the sky.
I want to thank Laurie and Alan for an amazing time and for making me feel like family. I also want to thank Colin one more time for helping me out - he took many of the awesome shots in the slideshow, including the rehearsal dinner photos since I could not be there. Looking forward to seeing you again in September! Click the photo below for the slideshow!
