Another year of documenting romance in the Southwest has come and gone!
While our team of storytellers is ready for all the magic, love, and passion 2023 will surely hold, we’re not quite ready to move on from this lovely year. So before we hit the ground running, we’re turning back the clock to a day we’ll never forget.
Grab a cup of coffee, cozy up, and keep reading for this New Mexican love story our team had the enormous privilege of capturing.
Dominique and Kyle met the modern way: on Facebook!
Despite their contemporary courting, however, their love story and wedding day were as timeless as can be. After proposing in front of all their friends and family shortly after Dominique graduated from nursing school, Kyle and his bride-to-be knew that their future together was a precious thing.
The lovebirds decided to invest their wedding funds into a backyard renovation — transforming the landscape into an intimate ceremony space and upgrading their newlywed home all in one go.
Framed by the hard work that crafted their newfound family home and surrounded by their loved ones, the commitment and devotion between Dominique and Kyle was palpable. The unplugged ceremony and personalized accouterments created a deeply present experience for the bridal party and guests — one we doubt they’ll never forget either!
Plum, blush, and cream florals adorned each corner, and from around a corner, Kyle presented Dominique with her pre-ceremony gift without sneaking a single peek. Representative of their timeless love, Kyle’s gift to his now-wife was to name a star after her.
The loving memory of Dominique’s late brother was honored at every turn, from his class ring which she wore coming down the aisle, to his chair which held a framed photo of him and his sister.
It should come as no surprise that there wasn’t a dry eye in the house when the beautiful bride came down the aisle — not even ours.
Thank you, Dominique and Kyle, for giving us a glimpse into the enchanting adventure that is your relationship together.
