This gorgeous New Mexico Sandia wedding has a perfect backdrop of a huge mountain range, big fluffy clouds & an adorable couple madly in love!
From the Photographer: Nicole & Philip are two of the most kind people you will ever meet & their wedding was nothing short of spectacular. They planned for a lovely wedding at Sandia Resort out on the driving range of the beautiful golf course overlooking the Sandia Mountain range & the reception was going to follow on the outdoor patio. As storm clouds rolled in & the wind picked up to over 25 miles per hour it was decided a back up plan needed to be made. Sandia had just finished constructing a beautiful new event center & they opened the doors & allowed Nicole & Philip to have the very first wedding to take place there. The storm made for the most beautiful backdrop for photos so in the end everything worked out flawlessly. Event coordinator, Alena Swanson did an amazing job bringing Nicole’s idea’s to life. The couple said their I do’s under handmade reclaimed doors gracing their names & guest threw lavender seeds in lieu of blowing bubbles. Delicate baby,s breaths graced the aisle & tables & guest snacked on a delicious dessert table full of whoopie pies, cakepops & homemade fudge! To wrap up the perfect evening the couple excited their reception with guests holding sparklers down the stairs to the resort.
