Beautiful Alamogordo Wedding- Denise & Elijah

After meeting these two together for their rockabilly engagement session here in Alamogordo, I knew their wedding day was going to be so much fun! Complete sweet souls who are crazy about one another and are best friends. I asked Denise to write down a few things about her wedding day to share with you all and here's what she said stood out the most..

"The wedding was definitely the most perfect day ever! I really loved seeing him all dressed up at the first look. It was a great moment, we were both so nervous but then we got to be nervous together...My absolute favorite part of the day though was our first dance, we had a minute to just talk and spend a few minutes being in the moment."

I loved the groom's suit he purchased from Express, and the mint tie with polka dot shirt...perfect!

I have a lot of favorite moments during the wedding day, but the first look might top it. a moment where the bride and groom can spend some time just enjoying one another and celebrating alone their commitment to one another.

The plan after the ceremony was to head over to the reception, but as i was driving behind the married couple, the sun was setting, and i quickly honked and annoyed them to follow me to the abandoned ranch on the way. I'm so glad they were up for it, we got some fabulous photos that i adore!

The reception was so unique with attention to detail, made even more special with Salvador Mariachi Alma de Jalisco, homemade food, and location at a family's backyard.
