Alex & Carlos || Historic Home Wedding

Well, this blog post is surely a late one considering Alex and Carlos tied the knot back in 2016! I can’t say I’m the best at blogging but at least I’ve come back to this lovely day to show you all how dreamy this historic home wedding in Albuquerque’s North Valley was. Although I typically write these blog posts myself, I have to hand this one over to the bride herself, Alex. She wrote the following excerpt for a feature in New Mexico Wedding Guide in 2017 and I don’t think I can top her beautifully written words: “It was a Saturday in the beginning of October: the perfect moment to celebrate a New Mexico wedding.  Carlos and I had met a year before, in Panama, when we least expected to meet our better-half.  From the start, we recognized in each other “lifetime material.”  It was only after a few months of dating that Carlos handmade our wedding rings out of silver-quarters.  We couldn’t imagine an indoor wedding or a catalog wedding; we wanted the trees and the sky to stand witness to our love and we wanted the complete freedom to design our wedding day.  For these reasons, we chose the historic Leslie Dietz Farmhouse.  The Leslie Dietz Farmhouse, listed on the national register of historic places, was the perfect backdrop: Grand spaces of open yard surrounded by large old cottonwoods, pine trees lining the property, and a beautiful Victorian Farmhouse.  Officially not a wedding venue, if not a vacation rental that can host private parties, our decision allowed for our large Panamanian family to stay in the nine-bedroom house.  We rented the house a week before the wedding, which gave us time to prepare for the big day and host many early festivities. We planned our wedding with the help of Orange September; they provided us with invaluable guidance and support through the months prior. Orange September made the day impeccable. We crafted and grew the foral designs ourselves: the centerpieces were succulents that we planted and nurtured for months before the wedding.  The delicious food menu was designed and executed by Crimson Catering. The day itself was perfect: The colours of Autumn were slowly creeping through the leaves of the Cottonwoods and the Pine Trees were darkening their needles.  We were fortunate: Big Family, many friends, life-lasting memories.  Carlos and I had written our vows together and in unison we joined our voices to promise a lifetime of loyalty, patience, and unhesitant love.  We held hands and exchanged our silver-quarter rings surrounded by our dearest family and friends in a circular ceremony.  I know it as perfect because Carlos and I danced the night through (and I hardly dance!).” Cheers to Alex and Carlos! May they have a fairytale life as much as they had a fairytale of a wedding.
