Another awesome elopement package!! This couple came up to Taos from Albuquerque to escape the big city and to tie-the-knot! Taos had a surprise snow the night prior to this outdoor wedding and the continued wind blew the remaining leaves off of the trees, onto the snow! The wind stood still while the ceremony was performed and the snow brought a quiet beauty. Congrats to Martha and Elias and their blessed wedding on first real snow of 2018!
Cat and her family came to northern New Mexico from Texas for a snowy winter vacation, and it snowed and snowed! Beautiful conifers adorned the property surrounding their cabin and they were a gorgeous backdrop for these family portraits. Everyone suited up in their winter boots and we knocked this photo session out in 45 minutes which included a quick drive to capture the ski slopes in the background too. As soon as we were done with these pictures, the snow started up again. Cheers to a very snowy winter!!!
After decades of being together, this couple decided to exercise their legal right to marry! Gary and Carl were married at four diamond resort, El Monte Sagrado, by Judge Shannon of Taos. The ceremony was short and sweet and ended with Judge Shannon playing the wedding march on his phone, we all had a good chuckle. The day was brisk and the expired leaves textured the trees and ground, it definitely felt like fall.
This photogenic couple came all the way from New Orleans to Taos, NM to elope! The light was absolutely perfect for the wedding ceremony which was officiated by Dan Jones of Embracing Ceremony. There was a light breeze and it was so quiet on the mesa as it was a Wednesday evening and not a lot of hikers were about. The groom (a tattoo artist!) requested a green pepper in the bride’s bouquet, and there were two! Congratulations to Denise and Walter and many more happy journeys.
St. Anthony’s Parish Chapel in Questa, NM is a beautiful backdrop for a wedding ceremony. Sonya and Adam live in Santa Fe but came “home” to Questa to say their wedding vows. The current priest at St. Anthony’s was a high school classmate of the groom which made this ceremony extra special for everyone involved. Sonya and Adam celebrated their wedding reception in Red River at the convention center. Congratulations to this lovely couple/family!!
