Ever since their engagement session, I have looked forward to photographing the incredible chemistry and love between Anna and Channing. These two are a pair that you look forward to photographing, because they are so gracious and appreciative. Aside from the obvious that they make a very stunning bride and groom, they were just downright enjoyable to be around and celebrate with. I’m not quite sure if Anna’s beautiful, bright smile ever dimmed throughout their entire wedding day. Channing, in his spiffy tan suit, matched Anna in her glowing state, as well.
The ceremony took place at the bosque in Las Cruces. The timing couldn’t have been better for a wedding outside and by the river, because the leaves were changing colors and the setting was just marvelous. And if everything else couldn’t be so perfect, the weather was the icing on the cake. It turned into a softly overcast fall day with leaves changing colors around the venue at the bosque. This provided the most perfect lighting with the most comfortable and beautiful fall setting we could ask for!! From here, the party proceeded to such a remarkable restaurant, the Double Eagle. Can you say stunning? The decorations on each table, the details within the restaurant, and the planning that went into it all! Nailed it. And the sweetest part of it all? This is the restaurant where Anna and Channing first met. We got plenty of stories on just how sweet and special this was during the toasts….which we loved! One of my favorite times of a wedding are the toasts, because we get to know our bride and groom’s even better! And to sum it up, Anna and Channing have such a confident love that they were sure of from the very beginning.
Mr. and Mrs. Keller, I hope your wedding day was everything you dreamed! It was so incredibly beautiful from beginning to end- decoration to people in it. I am excited for your new family of 4 and wish you a very blessed marriage! Your “monkeys” are so lucky to have such loving and caring parents!
