Old Town Farm Wedding in Albuquerque | Haley and Nick

About Haley and Nick

Haley and Nick had a beautiful Old Town Farm Wedding. Nick played drums for a band based out of Ohio. The band came to Albuquerque to work on their album. Haley is an Audio Engineer who works at the company where they were recording. Haley and Nick started hanging out with the other band members and engineers after the daily recording sessions. Before long, a romance had begun Over the months that it took to complete the album the band would travel back and forth between New Mexico and Ohio. Once the album was completed, Nick decided to quit the band and take a job in Albuquerque. You might surmise that he was smitten with Haley!  A year and a half later, Nick proposed and Haley accepted.

The Special Day

The wedding day started around noon at an actual operating farm nestled in the old town area of Albuquerque, New Mexico. Haley and her bridesmaids got ready for the day in a quaint country room appointed with wall-to-wall bookshelves and comfy couches and decorated in the shabby chic motif.

Getting Ready

They celebrated with a champagne toast and then settled down to doing hair and makeup and all the things that girls (and a guy) do to prepare for a wedding day. Meanwhile, Nick and his groomsmen were in another room, which was equally appointed, on the other side of the farmhouse. You could see that Nick was a little nervous. But he and the guys came outside for a few fun portraits. After that, they went inside and had shots of bourbon. A great way to calm any wedding day jitters!

A great way to calm any wedding day jitters! Once Haley got into her gown she and the ladies posed for some portraits as well.

The Ceremony

It was a short, sweet ceremony in front of the gazebo, under a couple of large cottonwood trees. While the guests enjoyed a cocktail hour under the cottonwoods, we went out to a large green pasture and took bridal party photos. The farm has another gazebo covered with ivy and a beside that is a small field planted with all types of wildflowers. This served as a colorful backdrop for some beautiful bride and groom portraits as well. 

The Reception

Next, it was on to the reception in the large barn, which was decorated in tulle swagging and fairy lights. Haley's uncle made a replica of the barn that was really cool! All of the customary festivities were observed and Nick even got a chance to play with his old band again!
