Small Outdoor Wedding at Taos Bed and Breakfast

Small Outdoor Wedding at Taos Bed and Breakfast

Kristina and Chris live in Albuquerque and escaped from the big city to catch some mountain air on their wedding day! This couple had 20 friends and family meet them in Taos, NM for the ceremony and mini reception. After a very dry winter, it was refreshing to see the beautiful green grass at Taos’ bed and breakfast Hacienda del Sol. Sacred Taos Mountain overlooked on the ceremony as officiant Dan Jones presided. Afterwards the couple celebrated with a toast and cake cutting and outdoor mingling with their guests.

These locals brought their best friends and closest family for a lovely ceremony with Taos mountain views and a beautiful garden! Hannah and Ryan couldn’t have known that they would get the best night in June for their outdoor summertime ceremony. The temperature was perfect and the breeze was ever so slight. The priority photos for this bride and groom were romantics, so we had fun walking around and getting creative.

Earth Day Wedding Ceremony at SpiriTaos

Earth Day Wedding Ceremony at SpiriTaos

We had beautiful April weather for this outdoor Taos wedding with Pueblo Peak as the altar backdrop. This bride and groom intentionally were wed on Earth Day, to honor Mother Earth and their shared love of nature. Lovers of Taos and northern New Mexico, this was a destination wedding as the couple traveled here from Texas! Both sets of their parents also took planes, trains, and automobiles to get to this off-the-beatten=path unique southwest town.

These gentlemen were encouraged to come to Taos for their destination elopement! Neither of these grooms had ever been to Taos and (thank God) they fell in love with it immediately!
The wedding was at a private home. After being together for over a decade this couple was still very nervous prior to the no-guest ceremony. The outdoor wedding ceremony was about fifteen minutes long and a few good-luck snow flakes even came down. Congratulations on this couple and many more decades of love!

I got together with this darling couple earlier in the afternoon on wedding day since their entire wedding was outdoors after dark. We captured their smiles in the daylight before I left to come back after dark.
This bride and groom came to Taos for their destination elopement and planned the ceremony to be during the 2nd full moon in January. This full moon was also a lunar eclipse. This was officially my first “Blue Blood Moon” wedding. Additionally, the wedding was shot in a labyrinth… It was unique and beautiful and very Taos!

This bride and groom had never been to Taos before their wedding; their best friends (from Albuquerque) suggested this resort in Taos and the wedding location was decided!
It was the 5th of January and it was over 50 degrees on this warm winter day. We did the pre-wedding photos outdoors and then moved into a gallery with a pretty view of treetops! Congratulations to Lori and Matt and here’s to the first wedding photographed in 2018!
