If you had asked me for the perfect way to close out my 2017 season, everything about this wedding is what I would have described! Iliana and Jamie’s classic black and red winter wedding held at Coronado Country Club was the stuff of dreams! Between the mountain views, the gorgeous light, everyone’s elegant style, and the beautiful florals, I loved every minute of this day!
The bridal party began their day at the bride’s mother’s house and, I’m pretty sure if the rest of my bridal parties from here on out wanted to get ready there, I would not be upset. The house is full of gorgeous backdrops and elegant antique furniture – I could have stayed there all day! It also doesn’t hurt that directly across the street are some absolutely incredible views of El Paso and the mountains. So naturally, we had to do some individual portraits there before we left 🙂
The ceremony was held in one of the most beautiful cathedrals I have ever seen – St. Patrick Cathedral. The bride and groom shared their vows in front of the sweetest bunch of family and friends before heading to the reception venue. The reception took place at Coronado Country Club, which is a gorgeous golf club in the heart of the mountains, overlooking Mexico and New Mexico.
The views are stunning and the sunset is divine.
After taking care of portraits and watching the sun set, everyone headed inside to the beautifully decorated reception room. The tables were decked out in black, red, and gold, with elaborate floral arrangements and candles galore, which were complimented well by the red and gold uplighting from DJ Ferris. Every bit of this reception was as fun as you could imagine, from the couple’s epic smoke-filled first dance to the party on the dance floor later. Dancing photos are always my favorite and this crowd did not disappoint!
Iliana and Jamie, thank you for allowing me to spend the weekend with you and for trusting me to capture your day. It was a true pleasure to meet your family and friends and see how loved you two are by everyone who knows you. Enjoy these sneak peeks! xo
