Although the hike was straight up and in the rain, the views were beyond outstanding!! Dreya and Derek came from Oklahoma to get married in Ute Park, NM on their favorite cliff. The rain subsided as soon as we made it to the top of the mountain and the breeze picked up perfectly when we wanted a cool photo with Dreya’s French veil…We were so happy that mother nature cooperated with us! Congratulations to a fabulous couple who will, no doubt, continue to reach new heights together!
There are so many positive reasons to elope and enjoy a wedding ceremony with just your partner! This couple came from Kansas to enjoy a wedding day all to themselves. They enjoyed a lovely breakfast and a morning walking around Taos Pueblo. After exchanging their vows at their private wedding ceremony in front of Taos Mountain, they had a champagne toast and did the traditional “good luck” wedding cake cutting. The afternoon was kept open for a splash in the hot tub and a relaxing dinner.
This wedding took place on Cinco de Mayo under the Gazebo on the historic Taos Plaza! The groom and best man rode into the plaza (and wedding ceremony) on motorcycles while the bride took the more traditional route of walking down the aisle with her father. The chiles hanging from the adobe buildings in the background of the ceremony photos give this wedding a true southwest feel. The wedding reception took place at The Gorge restaurant and bar right on the plaza!
The weather in Ducle, NM started out perfectly on this June wedding day. And then it rained. And rained and rained. The electricity went out in the church immediately after the ceremony but everyone breathed a sigh of relief when the reception site had a back up generator. This wedding reception was long, loud, and fun. All guests were up and dancing to everything from an Irish wedding song to Psy’s ‘Gangnam Style.’
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!
We are so proud that we did it again! A million thank yous to The Taos News for choosing our image to adorn the cover of annual Taos News Wedding Guide which came out last month!
