It’s a wonderful day to get down to business and start planning your wedding. The blazing New Mexico sun is shining bright, the roadrunners have taken to the streets, and the local wedding community is back in action, just eager to meet you!

Here at Wedding Collective, one of our greatest joys is creating connections. We know, you’ve probably heard us talk about it countless times, but it’s the foundation of our existence as a business and as humans. To get married is to have a connection with another person that is so strong that it can last for the rest of your lives! This is why we value connecting couples like you with our amazing wedding community – to create relationships that make magical things happen! Your dream wedding in the Land of Enchantment awaits you.

Over the course of the past few months, we’ve bonded with some incredible people and learned so much about our community. We are pleased to announce that we welcomed a great number of these professionals as new members of our wedding vendor tribe! We thought we would share this long list filled with sweetness + talent with you to guide you on your planning journey.

The Wedding Collective Team welcomes…

– Giselle Cardona, Realty One –

“As a former wedding coordinator, owning a successful wedding planning business for many years, I am no stranger to what it takes to pull off a successful event. My favorite part was being a part of so many people’s special day, walking them through the process from beginning to end and taking care of all the details involved to make the event as smooth, enjoyable, and successful as possible. As such with Real Estate, I feel the same satisfaction and have the same goal. I get to walk clients through the process of home buying and selling, working with many first time home buyers… I get to be there at the closing table as my clients “seal the deal” and get to start the new chapter in their life together”

You’re getting married!”, is such a joy for me! I’m such a hopeless romantic so bare with me when I start asking ALL the questions about your beautiful relationship! (Also bear with me if I start tearing up!!! I am the ultimate softy!).”

“We have always enjoyed photography, but our main focus and passion has been wedding videography. We firmly believe that a picture is worth one thousand words and a film is worth ten thousand more! Our editing style can be best described as moody. We love to highlight deep and warm tones. Shooting at sunset is our favorite time because we use natural lighting for our films. Our films evoke emotion by capturing the rawness and sincerity of those moments when you are being truly and happily yourself. We do not roll the cameras and just hope it all comes together. We seek to tell stories through our films. So prepare yourself for some belly laughs and fun but a relaxed day!”
