Last week, we kept warm by reminiscing about all the times we’ve busted a move on the dance floor — thanks entirely to the wedding DJs who are certified party animals!
Today, we’re keeping the fun going with a real wedding featuring one of Albuquerque’s best entertainment teams — King Mobile Music! Collaborating with some of the most beloved local wedding businesses, like The Cake Boutique and Charlotte’s Flowers, the wedding pros crafted a perfectly magical day for Jesus and Arlette.
And, while we know it’s not really about us — your Wedding Collective New Mexico team — it bears mentioning that this wedding is like something straight from our dreams.
We do a little happy dance every time a love story is shared with us, but Jesus and Arlette’s celebration of unity and dedication combined all of our very favorite things:
- Historical southwestern architecture
- New Mexican art, culture, and vibes
- Love, of course!
- Incredible local wedding professionals
- Unforgettable experiences
Bursting with color, adoration, and meaningfulness, this wedding day has brought a much needed dose of sunshine to an otherwise chilly season! Keep scrolling to live vicariously through the happy newlyweds, and swoon just like we did.
Photographed by the team of talented creatives at Stephany Taylor Photography, every snapshot shows just how bright, expressive, and candid Jesus and Arlette are.
With a deeply present approach and photojournalistic style, Stephany Taylor and her team always capture the effervescent moments that could otherwise be lost to time — like the groom’s happy tears as Arlette walked down the aisle, or his bride’s triumphant grin as they made their grand entrance to the reception.
Or, heaven forbid, the mariachi parade! As the couple traversed the romantic, old-world cobblestone streets of Santa Fe to their reception at the Inn & Spa at Loretto, the mariachi musicians led the way. Bringing their melodic joy out into the city, the parade of lovers and guests might be one of our favorite wedding moments of the year.
Keep exploring below, and share a little love with the wedding professionals in New Mexico who made this fairytale day possible.
