The weather was warm and the sudden, small gusts of wind were unpredictable, check out the ceremony pictures that grabbed Julia’s veil!! After a late sprnig, Taos is still waiting for the buds to come in on the trees, which gave us some really pretty mountain views that we don’t have from the Sacred Circle at the El Monte Sagrado in the summertime! Everyone had fun playing games on the Taos Mountain Lawn while enjoying happy hour. The reception took place in El Monte’s main ballroom.
Heather and Joel traveled a long way from their home in Virginia to their intimate, destination wedding in Taos, NM! This couple was all smiles on their March wedding day. Bed and Breakfast, Hacienda del Sol, hosted this wedding in their courtyard with mountain views. The snow made an intense appearance on Taos Mountain and provided a dramatic background and beautiful contrast in the photos. Eight guests came from around the country to join this couple on their wedding day and all guests stayed at this local venue with the bride and groom.
Congratulations to these sweet newlyweds and their beautiful love!!
Cindy and Ivan have a fairy tale story with enchanting wedding photos to match! This couple was wed in Red River, New Mexico in the warm sunshine and had an outdoor reception surrounded by warm fires. Their wedding guests traveled from all over to make it to this little mountain town. The views of the mountains with yellow and orange aspen leaves made for stunning backgrounds for the wedding party and guests. The couples’ ‘best dog’ was their Husky nephew who traveled to northern New Mexico from California.
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!!
Joy and Rob traveled from California to New Mexico to elope among the mountains of Arroyo Seco. Taos Mountain is considered very sacred to the Indigenous population in Taos. Joy and Rob were married in a ceremony that paid a great deal of respect to Taos Mountain (Pueblo Peak) and the Sangre de Cristo mountain range. This couple honored the native wedding traditions in the southwest, including the traditional wedding vase ceremony. As soon as the ceremony ended, the sun exploded into the golden hour. We walked through a high-desert field for some romanticy photographs and the bride and groom found a horseshoe (sure to be good luck)! Congrats to these amazing people!
