“Our love story is perfectly imperfect but it’s ours” says this beautiful Bride and we couldn’t agree more. Those love and life stories are often filled with bumps and bruises and what really amazes us is when couples can take on those difficulties and become stronger. And that’s exactly what Cindy and her husband Nick did. They reunited after time apart and Luminance Wedding Films captured all the magic that went down as they renewed their vows. You’ll be one lifelong believer in love after this right here!
From Luminance Wedding Films… “You are my miracle, and I am happy that it is you once again that I get to spend the rest of my life with.” Cindy shared these beautiful words to her husband during their vow renewal session. Their story is one that is very unique and one that we were so honored to be a part of. Cindy and Nick had been married before several years ago. As life sometimes goes, the couple struggled and found themselves going through a divorce a few years later.
After doing a lot of soul searching and finding their faith in God, the couple realized that they were meant for each other and re-connected. Having shared two children together and adopting a third, this family was made whole once again and they were re-married. Not having a video to document this special occasion, the couple approached Luminance Wedding Films to see about creating a vow renewal film. We of course jumped at the chance. Vows are the glue that binds two hearts together. They are what we reflect on when times are tough and when we need a reminder of what we have promised to each other. They see us through the good and the bad times. This film focuses on those important vows and on the strength they found in a life giving and reconciling God.

This Bride dreamed of a snowy wedding and that’s exactly what they got – and much, much more. Infused with a whimsical, vintage vibe, this winter wedding is all romance and love, from the sweet speeches to the beautiful moments between the newlyweds. And lucky for us, Luminance Wedding Films captured it all, complete with a soundtrack that is making us very, very happy this Saturday morning. Sit back, relax and soak it all in :)
From Luminance Wedding Films… The lovely couple that is Melanie and Connor exchanged their vows inside the charming chapel of Hotel Albuquerque in Old Town and danced the night away in the sweet, vintage styled ballroom. Melanie wanted a snowy wedding and her wish came true, as the sky burst open with the most dazzling flakes the night of the rehearsal dinner. The rehearsal dinner took place at The Los Poblanos Organic Inn and Farm where friends and family exchanged their congratulations and heartwarming toasts during a soft candlelit dinner with snow falling outside the window. What a backdrop to this magical evening!
The next morning Melanie slipped on her stunning, vintage beaded gown and topped her look with a fur stole. Connor made for a dapper, handsome groom in his grey colored wool suit. They are truly a couple whose fashion sense rocks that of Old Hollywood Glam. Their winter white wedding was just as gorgeous as this couple. This is a rock solid union and one that will last for all of eternity! Cheers to you both and may you have a thousand more snowy anniversaries!

From the Bride… Ryan proposed to me on a hot air balloon in Santa Fe last year. Once engaged we had our hearts set on a destination wedding and knew that going back to New Mexico felt right for our big day. La Mesita was the perfect choice for us when it came to venue. We loved how intimate, secluded, and special it felt. A true escape and adventure. With a small guest list we wanted our reception to feel like a dinner party; casual but elegant. Planning the wedding from afar was definitely a challenge, only visiting our venue once before the wedding weekend, but our vendors were wonderful and our day was more beautiful than we could ever have imagined! The Land of Enchantment will always hold a special place in our hearts.
