Take a retired, historic train yard with a vintage, industrial vibe and beautiful stained glass (although some pieces have taken a toll over time), an adventurous bride and what do you get?? A wedding venue naturally! The Yards, located in downtown Albuquerque, serves as a Farmers Market on Sunday mornings- but our favorite purpose is when it moonlights as a wedding venue by night. Stephanie and Jason’s special day was nothing short of amazing- lets check out their details!
This “destination wedding” gave the couple much to think about from their home in Las Cruces and how it would all come together. Enter Livingston Bridal and Events. During the planning process, we helped determine how to transform the space all the way to coordinating with the City of Albuquerque with their wedding plans (and permits!) They were required to have a fire marshal approve their wedding setup the day of- talk about nerve racking!!
Cue the tears, we literally started crying when this beauty walked down the aisle.
And when everyone’s looking at her, she’s looking at you.
The couple was married at the furthest end of the train yard, and worked their way down the span of the venue to cocktail hour with an AWESOME photo booth, and concluded at the opposite end where they enjoyed dinner and dancing. The couple made an epic exit down the aisle as the Bride surprised the groom with the “Imperial March” as their recessional song.
The ladies were able to choose their gowns from the Christina Wu Celebration collection (available at Livingston Bridal), while the men looked dapper in their Michael Kors suits with a POP of the accent color, Sangria, with their pockets squares.
Ummm… can we just talk about all of the cool photo ops they had??
They say the Devil is in the details and LOOK at those details on Steph’s dress! She rocked a beautiful Allure mermaid that was adorned with crystals that sparkled like diamonds and it
