Welcome back wedding lovers! Have you been staying safe and warm? We hope so!
This cold front might have stolen a bit of the joy and excitement that comes with a blanket of fresh snow — can’t we just enjoy the sparkling horizon without freezing our nose hairs?! — but even so, we’re still head over heels for this winter wedding in Red River, New Mexico.
Lisset + Matthew, the newlyweds featured today, traveled over from their home state of Texas to celebrate their love under a canopy of snow-laden branches, and thank goodness they did! The Shayla Cristine Photography team was honored to be there to capture their gloriously crisp day. (Although, you all know we’ve never shied away from traveling to an exciting location or shooting an adventure elopement!)
Nestled in the pines, Lisset + Matthew murmured their vows of everlasting love to one another while their loved ones witnessed, wrapped in blankets and cozy as all get out. (The couple provided their guests with the best winter-wedding favor ever — ultra soft blankets “to have and to hold, in case you get cold.”)
For all the shimmering beauty of the snow around them, and Lisset’s stunning gown too, nothing compared to the sparks between the couple themselves. The sparks that were, of course, flying during their reception! With their team of bridesmaids in red, adorned with fur, and their groomsmen in a complimentary grey, the bridal party spent the evening dancing, eating cake, laughing at inside jokes, and making new memories to last the rest of their lives.
(We’re tearing up here, on the other side of the screen, remembering how beautiful & full of love it all was!)
So we’re ecstatic to share these photos with you, our fellow wedding-obsessed lovers-of-love. Thank you for sharing in the enormity of each of these love stories, we couldn’t bear to do it without you!
And thank you, most of all, to Lisset + Matthew, for allowing us to be a part of your celebration.
