Julia and Seth were married at Los Poblanos Inn in Albuquerque, N.M. on May 9. “It captured the many facets of New Mexico’s beauty in one location,” Julia said. The bride wore a lace fit ‘n’ flare wedding gown with a plunging v-neck, accessorized with a floor-length veil and a pair of rhinestone-infused bow pumps, while the groom wore a dark gray suit, accessorized with a solid necktie. Don’t they look like fashion models! Bridesmaids wore short pale blue chiffon dresses and carried bouquets of garden roses, peonies, and succulents. Before the ceremony, the couple opted for a first look. “Seeing the faces of the people I hold nearest and dearest to my heart as I walked toward and down the aisle with my dad was my favorite moment,” she said. Following the exchange of vows and rings underneath enormous cottonwood trees, Seth couldn’t help but show his excitement by fist pumping. The newlyweds’ best advice? “Make sure you really like your vendors,” Julia said. “You will be working with them A LOT. We lucked out with phenomenal ones, which made the planning experience that much more enjoyable.” The reception was held outside on the fireplace terrace. Tables were decorated with white linens, glass jar centerpieces, and sprigs of lavender at each place setting’s menu card. Fun fact: It symbolizes love and devotion. In addition to dancing to the sounds of Vanilla Pop in the grand ballroom, there was also a garter and bouquet toss. The cake cutting went off without a hitch – no smearing in each other’s faces — and at the end of the night, they exited amongst a sea of sparklers ready for their honeymoon road trip to Alaska.
