A true elopement, these two came to Taos and tied the knot without anyone else knowing about their wedding! SpiriTaos was in full bloom and it was fun to use the plants with creativity. This ceremony was performed in front of a willow tree which gave us beautiful, even light. Congratulations to Arielle and Michael!
The early morning July air was cool as this young bride and groom waited patiently for their dream wedding…a summertime sunrise elopement in a small, desert, mountain town. This couple came from the city so the sounds of silence were the perfect “music” for their intimate wedding ceremony. The officiant, Dan Jones, wrote a beautiful ceremony integrating the labyrinth walk into the words of the devotions. When the sun broke through over the mountains and instantly warmed the outdoors, this wedding felt so perfect and right. The light in the bride’s eyes was magical.
The labyrinth is one of several private gardens that we offer to be used as a ceremony venue for our larger elopement packages.
Monica and George’s June wedding ceremony was performed at the Angel Fire Resort Overlook. The sunshine was brilliant and the breeze was perfect. The guests were seated and waiting as Monica arrived in a classic Model T to walk down the aisle. The unique altar with antlers was made by Monica and George who are both avid hunters. Congratulations to this local Taos’ couple!
Taos is a popular destination wedding location for both large weddings and small, intimate weddings such as this one. This wedding started out with just four guests, but grew as more friends and family heard that these two were getting married in beautiful northern New Mexico. This couple rented a home that was large enough for everyone to stay together, and everyone helped with the wedding decorations and details. The weather was cooperative and the sky was so photogenic. The bride carried silk flowers with turquoise accents. The golden retriever (and dog-of-honor) only stepped on the bride’s dress once. All is well that ends well…happily ever after….
After originally planning a large wedding, this couple took a few steps back and decided to elope to the mountains to have a wedding ceremony that was instead intended only for them. Taos has forests and deserts, mountains, groomed gardens, and natural sage landscapes. Taos has waterfalls and rivers, ponds and lakes…for a small town, we have a big area and versatile backgrounds to work with. Taos is a perfect place for your destination wedding or elopement!
This hike above the waterfall in El Salto is steep and can be a bit treacherous, but it completely worth the absolute privacy and stunning views of the Sangre de Cristos! This venue is not usually included with our elopement wedding packages but is offered as an upgrade. Other venues for our elopement packages include a private garden with mountain views, a pathway labyrinth, and the confluence of the Rio Pueblo and the Rio Grande.
Dan Jones officiated this ceremony and I swear time may have stood still during the vows…of the few people present there was not a dry eye… Now booking for 2020.
