Gay Wedding at Local Four Diamond Resort

Gay Wedding at Local Four Diamond Resort

Joe and Dexter’s outdoor, April wedding took place in El Monte Sagrado’s Sacred Circle. The Sacred Circle was blessed by many different religious leaders and many weddings at El Monte take place in this spiritual space. Dexter and Joe’s wedding ceremony was officiated by Dan Jones, Taos’ leading (and El Monte’s premier) wedding officiant. The ceremony was fifteen minutes long with loving readings from the grooms’ son and Dexter’s mother. Per usual, Dan’s words bestowed emotion on all and no one left with a dry eye. Congratulations to Dexter and Joe!

April Wedding in Blizzard at Taos Country Club

April Wedding in Blizzard at Taos Country Club

This Taos Country Club wedding was one I photographed several (six?) years ago! I wanted to post these pictures because it is a good reminder of how unpredictable the weather is here in Northern New Mexico!

When I started to photograph this bride and groom prior to the wedding ceremony, the Sangre de Cristo mountain range was barely visible, but it WAS visible. After the wedding we had a completely white/grey backdrop as the snow storm had moved into Taos and was making it’s way out to the country club! And, then it started snowing…
Five hours later the golf club’s green grass was a blanket of snow. The bride and groom were still in good spirits and even stepped outside for a few more memorable wedding images.

Small Local Wedding in Italian Restaurant

These Taoseños were married right off of the Taos Plaza at Stellas, a cute (and delicious) Italian restaurant on Ledoux Street. The ceremony was officiated by Taos County magistrate court’s Judge Shannon. Marco and his awesome chef prepared the reception dinner for 23 guests. Monique and Miguel are such a relaxed and loving couple and will definitely be living happily ever after.

Lucy and Paula came up from Southern New Mexico to enjoy the mountains and get married! The wedding took place at Taos’ resort, El Monte Sagrado in the afternoon. The sunshine was warm and it was truly a perfect day for a marriage! May Lucy and Paula have many more Valentine’s Day celebrations to celebrate their anniversary and never-ending love!
