Renee + Jerod { Bold Urban-Chic Rooftop Elopement}

What would you do if your wedding photographer stood you up on your wedding day? Unfortunately our next couple experienced this true life wedding nightmare first hand and holy cow, I am getting a rash just thinking about it!  Lucky for them a couple years down the road they became good friends with one of the top wedding planners in Albuquerque, NM- Alena of Alena Swanson LLCRenee often discussed what she “wished their wedding would have been”, and Alena listened. Incorporating their original wedding colors of pink, cream and white, she was inspired to gather the best wedding pros in ABQ and create their dream wedding elopement shoot. This shoot was a total surprise to the model bride, who only found out days before.

From the planner, Alena:  “Using an ombre of pink and rose gold, the bling, glitter and boldness of black reflect their classy but quirky personalities. Together, they love books and reading; and every detail reflects this as well, through scrabble tiles, ampersands, and stacked book centerpieces– all the bride’s favorite things!

To get just the right color, every detail was hand crafted by wedding pros, from her pink hair to her glittery heels. The pros were so thoughtful in remaking their dream wedding- they are even eating pink strawberry cake! This unique couple loves the rare and unusual, yet beautiful things in life, so I kept this in mind when choosing pink ginger flowers, the industrial location, rose gold jewelry, and a blush wedding dress.

This type of stylized shoot sincerely emulates the spirit of the wedding industry as we bless others on their special day and do our best to go above and beyond.”

The joy of this once in a lifetime experience is real in these stunning photos, a huge thanks to  Emily Joanne Wedding Films & Photography

From the photographer:  {Emily Joanne Wedding Films + Photography}

With each wedding we do, we get the opportunity to meet amazing and unique couples and Yuki and George were no exception.  From the moment we met these two, George’s charm and Yuki’s beauty were breathtaking.  Not only was photographing their day an extreme pleasure, but just getting to know these two was something special.  The chemistry, love, adventure, and honor between them just resonated throughout their entire wedding day.  I cannot say enough about what a special couple they are.

The wedding itself was filled with personal details that set the stage for such a special event, from Japanese and English programs, to specialty sushi served at cocktail hour (the bride’s New Mexican inspired recipe). Los Poblanos Historic Inn & Organic Farm set a stunning backdrop to the day, and was a photographer’s dream come true!
