How to Plan Your Ideal Honeymoon

The Wedding Collective team is dreaming about the sound of waves crashing upon the shore and, surprisingly, even the chaotic nature of navigating our way through theme parks. Along with our engaged couples, we’re especially dreaming about romantic getaways with our partners.

Although going on a romantic getaway seems unheard of these days, it doesn’t mean that it is going to be this way forever. In fact, we’re anxiously awaiting safer and brighter days where we can hop on the next flight to Disneyland! Now is the perfect time to plan ahead, make must-see lists, and get hyped up for your future honeymoon with the love of your life. For many engaged couples, planning a honeymoon may seem like the last thing you want to worry about, and it is often seen as a stressful task.

Were here to make planning your future honeymoon enjoyable and easy with some tips and tricks, all while connecting you with some of our favorite local wedding travel gurus. Tip #1…

1. Make Lists + Brainstorm

This is first on our list because, well, we love lists for planning, and second, it is the best way to stay organized throughout your planning process. Creating a list gives you something to refer back to as you move forward and will keep you on track! Plus, it’s exciting to actually write down all of the travel ideas that you’ve had in your head and see them become a reality.

When listing, start with all of the places you want to go for your romantic honeymoon – do you want to travel to a different country or domestically? Will you take a road trip or hop on a plane? What kind of lodging do you want? Break it up into categories and start looking at your options. Talk to your significant other about their desires and see what you can narrow it down to. You can download the template below to help you plan your dream honeymoon:

2. Budget, budget, budget

This may seem like the dreaded aspect of planning a honeymoon, but it is really the most important part of the process because it will keep you realistic about your options. I know, sadly, not everyone has a million bucks to drop on a romantic private seaside retreat with a personal chef, and if you do, mind taking us along with you? In all seriousness, though, budgeting helps you travel without the stress of running low on funds and will result in a more enjoyable vacation with your honey.

There are lots of free budgeting apps for your phone, or you could do it the old fashioned way. Another option is to have your travel agent help you out with your budget and spending limitations. Cue the gurus!

3. Find a Travel Agent

This is where some of our wedding travel gurus come in – hurray! Working with a travel agent is important because they are incredibly knowledgable on everything travel related and can ensure you’re getting the best for your budget, time, and energy. With your interests in mind, travel agents will take the stress out of booking lodging, finding flights, and site-seeing.

Many agents specialize in certain destinations, like our own lovely Renee Cuessy with Rope Drop Travel. Renee works with couples and families to plan Disney, Universal, cruise and all-inclusive vacations. As Disney and Universal lovers ourselves, we’re pretty jealous that she gets to do this as her job! If you’re looking to bring some magic into your honeymoon, then she’s your gal! You can get in contact with Renee here for more information.

4. Research the Local Culture

Once you’ve planned your destination, you can start creating your itinerary and get familiar with the local culture. If you’re traveling out of the country, let’s say to a resort off the coast of Mexico, you’ll want to make sure that you’re prepared to be able to communicate with the locals in order to get around and immerse yourself with new friends you’ll make a long the way. Exploring new food options, clothing, and languages is all part of the experience. Even if you’re staying in the states, respecting cultures should be your top priority in any place you’re unfamiliar with – and having fun + relaxing comes next!

If you want to plan your honeymoon at an awesome resort out of the country, or even in the country, another great local travel guru is Travel To Amazing Places. They will help you plan the most romantic getaways yet, all around the world! From that lovely resort off the coast of Mexico to hot-spots in Hawaii, the options are endless. You can get in contact with these experts here for more information.

5. Finally, Have Fun

Ah, the best part. You’re embarking on your first big, or even little, journey as newlyweds. The planning is over and now it’s all about having fun and getting your romance on. Keep a daily journal about your adventures and take plenty of photos that you can look back on in the future. It might even be a good idea to “disconnect” from your phone and social media so you can focus on your love for each other.

No matter what, you did it. You successfully planned a wedding AND a vacation and the rest of your life is ahead of you. Next step: share your wisdom with future brides + grooms. Do you have honeymoon tips you’d like to share? Leave them in the comments below!

Family is Forever: A Real Wedding with Alicia Lucia Photography

Here at Wedding Collective, family is everything. Our mothers and fathers, sisters and brothers, husbands and wives, children and pets are our support system and livelihood! We like to think that our entire wedding community is our family, as well, which gives us this warm and fuzzy feeling in our hearts. No matter who you consider your family to be, you’ll want them to be by your side as you celebrate your marriage together.

Lauren + Andrew were thrilled to be gaining new families on their wedding day, and they absolutely made it one of the most memorable days of their lives. With family and friends traveling all the way to New Mexico from the East Coast, the couple wanted to show them the awe-inspiring views of the Southwest, so they chose La Mesita Ranch as their ceremony venue. The combination of blush florals, vintage furniture, and southwestern textures, while completely on trend, spoke to the couple’s unique personalities and love for each other.

“We chose La Mesita Ranch because we loved the beautiful property and breathtaking vistas and felt like it would really wow our mostly East Coast guests. If we were going to ask our friends and family to come all the way to New Mexico we needed to show them the #NewMexicoTrue beauty!”

– Lauren + Andrew, bride and groom

What made the day most special were the little touches that Lauren included to honor the life of her father. Like any great father-daughter duo, their love of sweet treats is what brought them together to make memories. Lauren remembered making biscochitos and eating oreos together, so she served those to her guests to keep his spirit alive. The sweetness doesn’t end there, though, because Lauren’s mother sewed her father’s wedding ring into her dress so that he could still walk her down the aisle.

As the evening carried on, the golden light washed over the couple and their guests like a wave of pixie dust, making for the most romantic views. Lauren + Andrew chose Alicia Lucia Photography to bring those raw moments to life – and let us tell you, it’s honestly hard to believe that they are real. For any and every wedding, the key ingredient to those incredible, movie-scene moments to be captured through the lens, is the love between people. Whether you are with your life partners, friends, or family, there is no greater memory than that of true happiness when you’re with the ones you love.

“We chose many of our vendors after seeing a lot of their work in Alicia’s photos and knowing that we would be in AMAZING hands with each of them – especially in that we were planning from afar. I feel most happy that we rushed to book Alicia and her team because we were floored by how well our pictures came out. It felt as if they captured every great moment and helped us to stay relaxed.”

Vendor Spotlight: Ashleigh Olguin Ceremonies

It’s a beautiful Tuesday here in New Mexico – despite the moth apocalypse that’s nearly taken over the entire state. However, we’re loving the weather and all of the ways that the community continues to come together to create incredible things. We’re starting to finally see glimpses of upcoming intimate weddings and we couldn’t possibly be more excited.

Wedding Collective is so happy to have welcomed some fantastic new vendors over the past couple of months, including the lovely Ashleigh Olguin of Ashleigh Olguin Ceremonies!

Ashleigh did such an amazing job! She wrote such a beautiful ceremony that fit us very well, even after just meeting us once. We did a unique whiskey unity pouring and once we told her about this she did a wonderful job of writing it up. She is so easy to work with, professional, and has a real knack for writing a ceremony that perfectly fits the couple. Thank you for everything!”

Mike & Courtney Bartholomew

How could you go wrong with an officiant whose slogan is “Ashleigh loves LOVE”? We LOVE that and kind of wish we could steal it for ourselves! With over 9 years of experience in officiating weddings, Ashleigh has all everything you need to have a jaw-dropping, tear-jerking, laughter-filled ceremony surrounded by family and friends.

We always encourage local couples to work with the wedding vendors that listen to their visions and treat you like both client and friend. Wedding vendors should be the guide that walks the wedding planning path alongside you, not ahead of you or shouting from the finish line. Ashleigh Olguin is the perfect example of a wedding vendor who values connection and understanding – ensuring that she is with you every step of the way.

Whether you’re planning a religious, non-religious, or non-traditional wedding, Ashleigh has her door open to a variety of services and ceremony types.

Everlasting Love: A Real Wedding with Moon + Midnight Photo

To all the couples who keep falling for one another, and learning to love without hesitation. That type of love is one of a kind, and Michael & Angelica embodied that on their wedding day.

Caronline, Moon + Midnight Photo

Everybody wants an everlasting love that can withstand the trials and tribulations of life. That is what makes marriage such a beautiful thing. It is a promise, of the most genuine kind, between two living, breathing beings that happened to cross paths at the perfect time. Here at Wedding Collective, we love stunning gowns and enchanting venues, but even more so, we are here because we love connections.

For Michael + Angelica, their connection is magical. The lovely couple were middle school sweethearts, and yep, same. We’re also feeling a sudden onset of happy tears! Someone needs to bring us the tissues, please. If you think back to your middle school days, they were filled with excitement – your first locker, new crushes and the first real experiences of heartbreak. For these two, it was also the beginning of something unique and incredible that would last a lifetime.

For their wedding day, the couple chose to incorporate lots of warmth, which was fitting for such a unique and intimate union. Baby’s breath, lavender, white roses, and hints of sage green surrounded Michael + Angelica as they celebrated their love! From the details in the invitations to the bouquet, everything had hints of elegance and intimacy.

“Michael and Angelica were middle school sweethearts, but meeting them you would feel that strong connection instantly. They make romance look so simple. It was like breathing when it came to taking their photos, each moment became a beautiful memory that they get to have for a lifetime.”

Caroline, moon + Midnight photo

Michael + Angelica picked a photographer that would be able to capture the warmth, and without question chose Moon + Midnight Photo! Caroline of Moon + Midnight Photo knows exactly how to turn small moments into big ones that will never be forgotten. Her style was a perfect match for such a loving couple with an amazing history together, and just by looking at the gallery, you’ll feel the strength of their connection immediately.

Vendor Spotlight: De Novo Concierge Pastors

Pastor Paul was everything you want in a wedding officiant! He made everyone feel comfortable, had great advice for our vows, showed up on time, laughed with us, and made the day so perfect! His wife is also a gem!!! She helped with making the day run smoothly! From the bottom of my heart I want to say thank you Paul! You touched our hearts and made our special day even more special! 

– Gabrielle, Bride

When we think of wedding vendors that go the extra mile to ensure that their couples have the best treatment, our minds immediately go to De Novo Concierge Pastors. It can be hard to find an officiant that not only makes you feel important, but also like you were born to be friends. Dr. Paul Martinez and his team of Concierge Pastors are the kind of business that you’ll never forget.

Beyond their wildly friendly + professional service, De Novo provides a range of resources for local couples that are getting married. Unlike many other officiants, Paul offers pre-marriage counseling for couples who want to enter their marriage feeling like they have plenty of guidance and strength to get the most out of their relationship. Paul is a certified SYMBIS (“Saving Your Marriage Before it Starts”) facilitator, which is the foundation for his coaching methods. With SYMBIS, couples will take a short assessment that paves the path to understanding their relationship dynamics.

When it comes to officiating your wedding, Paul and the team of concierge pastors will work with you from start to finish, making sure that you have everything you need during the rehearsal and ceremony. They’re no strangers to beautiful love stories and great celebrations, so you can trust that they will handle everything perfectly. Wedding officiants are your guide toward your life together, so it is important that they bring out the best in you and your guests. There will be nothing but sweet smiles, laughter, and maybe quite a few happy-tears, during your ceremony – and that’s just how it should be.

We love seeing our vendors become famous within the wedding community, so check out this interview with Paul that has been posted up on the Wedding Report’s page! After viewing and eager to learn more, you can get connected with De Novo Concierge Pastors here.

Oh, Snap! Here’s Why You Should Have a Photo Booth at Your Wedding

Everyone loves taking silly selfies, snapping cute photos with friends, and documenting momentous occasions. With social media becoming an important part of our lives, photos are the best way to share our experiences with friends near and far. It’s especially fun to share these moments when you have big reasons to celebrate – like your marriage!

If there’s one thing that has become a staple of every awesome wedding, it’s the photo booth. Your friends + family will love it and you will love looking back at all of the memories made. Plus, you don’t have to lift a finger and you can spend your wedding day worry-free. Here are a few great reasons why you should have a photo booth at your wedding:

It’s entertaining for your guests

Your guests are going to have a lot of downtime in between activities, especially right after your ceremony while you’re off with the photographer taking photos. To avoid guests lingering or sitting in awkward silence at their tables while they wait, a photo booth will encourage them to do something fun and productive! Photo booths are the perfect ways to get your guests to mingle and have a good time with each other – even if they’re strangers! By the end of the night, everyone will have a new best friend and an amazing keepsake from your day.

You can get creative with it

If you look around, new wedding trends are popping up everywhere. From vibrant colored flowers + decor to donut walls, the possibilities are endless. When it comes to your photo booth, you can come up with your own props that fit with your theme and design a backdrop that is uniquely yours. Some of our favorite trends for photo booths are signs with your wedding hashtag, flower walls, and the bride and groom’s faces as props!

The experts will handle everything

When hiring a local photo booth vendor, you can rest assured that everything is going to run smoothly. These experts have years of experience and are there to ensure that you and your guests are having a great time getting silly together. When you and your photographer can’t be there to take photos of every guest, the photo booth expert will handle everything. Just make sure that you get a photo at the photo booth, too! Here’s a list of our favorite local photo booth experts:

1. Complete Weddings + Events

… Jacqie and Maritza handled the photo booth which all of my guests loved!! It was a huge hit! They were very sweet and very attentive! The book with all of our pictures people took that we got at the end of the night was amazing we got to see all the little moments we missed being the bride and groom and it was just wonderful!!…

Shariah P.

2. Photographic Perspectives

John and Sandra were a pleasure to work with! They were personable and very responsive to our texts/emails. They went above and beyond on our wedding day! They captured so many amazing photos. My husband and I are very happy with our pictures. Our guests enjoyed the photo booth and the great props. 

Katherin D.

3. Justin’s Magic Mirror

Justin’s Magic Mirror takes photo booth fun to a whole new level. As participants walk up to the mirror, colorful animations and a voice guidance invite them to engage in a magical interactive “selfie” experience offering the latest technology in interactive picture taking. The full-length mirror offers a sleek design and a user friendly interface, communicating with guests through a touch screen of colorful animations and entertaining voice guidance.

Give the Gift of Love with The Recognition Place

First and foremost, Happy Galentine’s Day to all of you lovely ladies out there! We hope you’re ready to spend this day embracing some self-care and your favorite gal pals. If you don’t know what to do for your loved ones to celebrate Galentine’s/Valentine’s Day, keep reading because we’re about to introduce you to a vendor who might just be your new go-to gift guru.

When it comes to wedding gifts, it can be hard to think of something unique that the bride and groom don’t already have. Even when presented with the help of a gift registry, sometimes a new toaster oven just doesn’t seem to say how much you love them as a couple. We get it, you want something exciting that they will receive graciously and want to display with pride. How about something engraved with love? Enter The Recognition Place, a locally owned and operated engraving shop and a new member of Perfect Wedding Guide!

There’s No Place Like Home: A Fall Wedding with Maura Jane Photography

The tall cottonwood trees arched all the way over the long paved Los Poblanos driveway as we made our way to Lauren and Andrews wedding. The leaves were already changing and several of the trees here and there were really showing off their colors. The couple had traveled all the way from New York City for their big day in the Land of Enchantment, and they were excited that fall was beginning to appear. 

– Maura Casados, Maura Jane Photography

As many New Mexicans know by now, it is hard not to return back home when you leave our lovely state. We hear stories all of the time about couples who move away for various reasons, but decide to have their wedding here in the Land of Enchantment because it truly stole their hearts. We totally get it. There is something so captivating about the landscape and the people – it really is a gem.

Lauren & Andrew seemed to both agree that New Mexico was the ideal place for their fall wedding, even though they live all the way on the East coast in New York City. When you live all the way on the other side of the country, sometimes you need to call the family back home to ask for a little wedding planning help, and that is just what Lauren did. Lauren’s mom knew just the location to celebrate the marriage between her daughter and to-be-son-in-law – Los Poblanos Historic Inn & Organic Farm! The couple booked the venue without hesitation. And who wouldn’t after seeing the stunning backdrops of lavender fields and rustic farmhouse chic decor?

The couple chose different shades of burgundy and blush for their colors, which complimented the fall foliage perfectly. Lauren wore her hair low and side-swept in a perfect bun and donned a stunning lace dress that fell off her shoulders softly. Perhaps our favorite detail was her pointed Bella Belle heels that matched her dainty belt perfectly.

The Perfect Wedding Guide crew is swooning over the small details from this perfect autumnal wedding. The rose gold ring, the pastel invitations, the perfectly fitting gown, and their absolutely radiant love for each other are just a few of the things that have us struck with awe. Not to mention that this day was captured by the one and only Maura Jane Photography whose style fits seamlessly with the warm + pastel fall vibes.

They exited the ceremony with a dried rose petal toss before joining their guests for cocktail hour on the back lawn. White pumpkins, candles and eucalyptus decorated the tables as guest toasted the newlyweds and sipped lavender gin cocktails and champagne. We finished the evening with a quick photo in front of the old historic building that hosted their reception as the couple kissed while being surrounded by farolitos.

We are so honored to have been sent the gallery from Lauren & Andrew’s wedding day. Take a peek & let the feeling of pure bliss come over you as you immerse yourself in the beautiful photos taken by Maura and her team!

Congratulations Lauren and Andrew, we are so happy for you both!

7 of New Mexico’s Best Entertainment Experts

You know that classic saying, “it’s all about the music”? When it comes to your wedding, this statement couldn’t be more true. With the rise of technology, we have so many options when it comes to picking some tunes. Between customizable Spotify playlists and YouTube music stations, it’s so hard to say no to these easy and budget-friendly alternatives.

If you’re on the fence about which option is best, we’re going to help you out—you absolutely should book a local entertainment expert. Here’s why:

You’ll get a genuine and authentic experience. Not only are these local musicians and disc jockeys well seasoned in their craft, but they also know how to throw together one heck of a show. For the bride and groom looking for that authentic New Mexican experience—or even simply a classic, yet genuine, performance to make your wedding more elegant, you’ve come to the right place.

You won’t break the bank. With such a wide variety of vendors to showcase, you’re sure to find one that fits your wedding day budget. It is always good to remember that you are hiring an entertainment expert. These are folks who have been working in the industry for a long time and are sure to make your big day the most memorable day of your lives, and that itself is priceless!

Your wedding will be completely unique. From the gown to the venue, every bride and groom has their own personal touch to add to their wedding, and the music shouldn’t be the exception. By choosing a local entertainment expert you get to be in control of the look, the feel, and the mood of the day. You can work closely with the musician or DJ to make sure that all of your favorite songs and sounds will be implemented into the ceremony and reception. 

You don’t have to worry about anything. Seriously. Your job is to have a great time while the professionals handle everything. There’s no need to worry about that playlist glitching halfway through the ceremony because you’ll be in good hands. Now that should be music to your ears!

Whether you want a live accompaniment while you walk down the aisle or a reception DJ that makes your guests get up from their tables and dance, we can’t think of a better way to help those dreams come to life than to provide you with New Mexico’s greatest entertainment professionals.

1. Complete Weddings + Events

Working with Complete was as easy as you could possibly want when planning this stressful event. Justin sat down with us, heard our wants and requests, and paired us with a fantastic DJ and videographer who met our needs perfectly. Both David (our DJ) and Minh (our videographer) met with and developed a relationship with us beforehand to make sure they had an exact idea of our vision for our wedding day. We would definitely recommend Complete to anyone looking for a hassle free wedding experience!

– Sanae, Bride

2. Cutmaster Music

We chose Chris from Cutmaster Music to be our DJ at our reception. And I must say, he was worth every penny! Chris kept us on schedule and got all our guests hyped for our entrance! He then made our first dance extremely special by asking our guests to come stand around the dance floor. 

– Amanda, Local Bride

3. King Mobile Music

Brad King might very likely be the best DJ in Albuquerque, and you would be silly not to book him if you have the chance. My fiance and I met with Brad through a recommendation from our photographer because we had mentioned that our dream wedding reception was A LOT of fun and a had every guest dancing. Let me tell you, Brad delivered.

– Kayla, Local Bride

4. Cello for Weddings

Ryan’s talent, demeanor, and musical talent was the cherry on top of the most perfect day. My husband and I live in Seattle and had a destination wedding in Santa Fe, NM. Working with Ryan was the easiest part of the planning. By request, he played a beautiful cello compilation of my favorite Yanni song- a song which had deep meaning to both me and my dad. The song gave me absolute chills and caused my dad to burst into tears. I gave Ryan very little direction and trusted his experience and understanding. He showcased his talent and expertise in his field effortlessly.

– Briana, Bride

5. Absolute Entertainment

Soulstice was incredible, reliable, trustworthy, and in control. When our venue experienced a few hiccups during our wedding, Vicky grabbed the microphone and was to the rescue, improvising without anybody knowing. They are the best band in Santa Fe, by far, recommended everywhere.

– Heather, Local Bride

6. John P. Martinez, Guitarist Extrordinaire

John played for our daughter’s wedding. He is an amazing guitarist. Our outdoor wedding ended up with last minute rearrangements to indoor, very tight space. John had learned new music for the processional that ended up being the shortest processional ever and he had to sit in a tiny corner. None the less, the ceremony guitar music was beautiful and the cocktail hour music was great and fun.

– Dana, Mother of the Bride

7. Musicology DJ and Events

We booked Musicology for our wedding, after seeing them at a bridal show they put on (which was awesome in and of itself) and we couldn’t be happier that we did! Laura and Eliot were extremely helpful from the very beginning. We started talking about what we are looking at in terms of songs way ahead of the wedding. They’re really great at suggesting songs (their song library is huge, they have everything!)

– Kelly, Local Bride
