ABQ BioPark: Outdoor Engagement Session in New Mexico

Because we, your entirely devoted Perfect Wedding Guide team in New Mexico, have uniquely positioned ourselves between the local wedding community, and Albuquerque + Santa Fe’s beautiful engaged couples, we kinda get the best of both worlds. We get to support small businesses, and keep the state’s eclectic market thriving through all our dutifully tended-to platforms. And, we get to offer relief, not resistance, for couples in the midst of wedding planning — humbly gifting them everything from online tools and contact info for local professionals, to extravagant, IRL (in real life) wedding shows, to our adorable, purse-sized print magazine.

Not gonna lie, we LOVE doing it, especially that last part. Our magazine, which we build by hand and print locally twice a year, is chock full of tips, tricks, coupons, goodies, and giveaways. The best part of all of it, though, are the love stories and inspiring photos that fill the pages with — yes, eye candy — but most importantly, local inspiration from real people.

And real couples like Meriah + Daniel! We’re eternally grateful that the local couple decided to go with Matt Blasing Photography for their engagement session, or we might not be here falling in love with their photos right now. Matt Blasing Photography¬†has won our PWG Elite Award for Best Photographer for like, the last thousand years, and it’s no wonder why. Matt + Amy‘s vivid and authentic photography style never strays from excellence, and the warm hearts of the husband-wife duo win over everyone who meets them. (Just read their reviews, if you don’t believe us.)

Shooting at the ABQ BioPark, too, the forever adventurous and outdoorsy couple perfectly mirrored the natural vibes of the local treasure. Rugged, and intrinsically New Mexican, the couple’s personalities and love story emanate from their session, and we can’t get enough.

Popular wedding rings, that last forever

There are many trends that a number of brides and grooms consider when planning a wedding, regardless if they are conscious of their decisions following these trends or not. One of which is wedding rings, as there are a number of different styles and designs that make up these beautiful bands. According to OneWed, there are three wedding ring trends that can make it easier for some couples to decide Рengraving, vintage and metal harmony.

Engraving has become increasing popular amongst brides and grooms, as they inscribe a date or a sentimental note onto the band. If a couple wants to do this, they need to be careful of what metal to use, as white gold will fade the message over time, but platinum will keep it up. Also, people have started to incorporate old family heirlooms into their rings. Metal harmony is another trend that allows the rings to look similar to represent their bond.

Grooms may not want any diamonds on their wedding bands – one option for them are tungsten wedding bands. These rings do not have the classic diamond as many expect but rather a small black diamond that is both simple and still showcases great quality in a ring.
