Featured in New Mexico's Perfect Wedding Guide | Intimate Garden Wedding at Los Poblanos: Brian + Paige

Paige + Brian‘s wedding day was incredible in many ways, but what really stood out is the way they made the day their own. They said “I do” at the Los Poblanos Historic Inn and Organic Farm with florals by Floriography Flowers which truly made their wedding a reflection of who they are. 

For starters, Paige + Brian opted out of a traditional wedding party, asking their siblings to stand up with them as they exchanged vows before their circle of family and friends.  Paige's brother holding her bouquet and helping with her train was basically the sweetest thing ever! Both Paige + Brian didn’t want the feel of a regular reception, so they choose to set up a more relaxed evening. With custom designed lounge areas by Rust Vintage, craft cocktails, lawn games, live music by Shane Wallin, and farm-to-table small plates, it was a delightful evening! Instead of a guest book, Paige + Brian asked their guests to write messages on giant Jenga blocks, which were handmade by the bride’s grandfather - what a special touch! 

After a round of moving toasts made by Paige + Brian’s family and friends, which left everyone in tears (including me!), it was time for the couple to leave. Their getaway car was a 1930’s Ford Model A, which they drove down the driveway lined with their guests with sparklers. A gorgeous ending to an wonderful day filled with love!
