Matthew & Jourdan || Albuquerque DIY Wedding

These two…they’re simply hilarious people who make you want to spend your whole day with them. From the moment I met them, I knew we were connected. They were welcoming, generous and my cheeks would hurt each time I saw them from smiling so much. They are the kinds of people that make me fall in love with the work that I do. They are the kinds of people that make all the hustling worth it. They are truly lovely souls I’m forever thankful I was blessed to meet.

Jourdan and Matthew originally planned to hold their intimate wedding at the Albuquerque Rail Yards but had changed their mind to host it in their backyard instead. It couldn’t have been a better fit. Their backyard hosted their guests for the ceremony and reception, decorated with hundreds of white lights, eclectic drinking glasses and bottles and beautiful DIY ornaments to give the space a perfectly homey feel. The two shared their fir look moments at a park near their home, which presented a gorgeous view of the Albuquerque skyline, and they danced the night away to the Beatles. Everything about this day was perfect.

Congrats, you two.

Big thanks to Lisa Burke for helping me shoot this lovely wedding.
