1880 UNION HOTEL WEDDING | LOS ALAMOS, CA

Natalie and Connor had a gorgeous June wedding at the 1880 Union Hotel in Los Alamos, CA.

Natalie dreamed up the term “rustic Victorian chic” to describe their day at the historic 1880 Union. The couple chose Los Alamos for their destination wedding not only because it is surrounded by the gorgeous Santa Barbara wine country, but because the town itself is small and charming with authentic historic connections (namely the 1880 Union) that they were excited for their guests to see.

The venue’s Old Western theme combined with greenery and brickwork on the grounds, really matched with the couple’s chic Western vibes. Natalie wore the most awesome Victorian-esque cape by BHLDN and Connor wore cowboy boots; their looks truly completed their rustic Victorian chic theme.

A few other notable elements of their outdoor wedding reception were the wedding cake topper of the bride and groom skiing, and the mini bottles of Patron given to the guests as favors.

Enjoy this summer wedding at the 1880 Union hotel!
