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.
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.
These women came to Taos for an intimate ceremony at the lovely Touchstone Inn. There were five close friends and family whom came to witness this wedding. The cake was made by Bren Price (owner of Touchstone Inn) and the ceremony was performed by Sandra Chestnutt.
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!
No matter if it’s summer or winter, the El Monte Sagrado is a lovely place to elope and make your vows! This couple was wed on a gorgeous January day with sunshine and unusually warm temperatures. Methodist pastor, Steve Wiard, officiated the late afternoon ceremony. The bride and groom had a exquisite dinner in Anaconda’s wine room after their marriage.
There is nothing like a snowy, Christmasy, Taos wedding! Although there was snow on the ground and the temperature was frigid, this bride did not complain once during her outdoor December wedding! The blanket of snow was so beautiful with the bride’s white dress. The cake cutting and toast took place inside where the champagne was cold, but the bride and groom were warm!
