South Dakota Wedding at the “Indian Church”

Beautiful couple from California who came “home” to Dakota to recite their wedding vows! This simple church didn’t have electricity and the altar decor of candles in Ball jars were a perfect combination with the natural light. The country club wedding reception was in stark contrast with the ceremony location as we had electricity, indoor plumbing, air conditioning, and green, watered grass!

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.

Taos Country Club Wedding

Lori and Sam held their wedding ceremony and reception at the Taos Country Club. These newlyweds were blessed with a gorgeous day, beautiful blue skies, and puffy white clouds. As soon as the sun began to go down, the sky turned into an amazing portrait of yellows, oranges, and purples and we captured some amazing sunset photographs.

Our Lady of Guadalupe Wedding Ceremony

There is nothing like a wedding in Taos, NM! Rachel and Seth live in California, but Rachel was raised in Taos and has been dreaming about her wedding day here since she was a little girl. Rachel and Seth tied the knot at Our Lady of Guadalupe Parish one block away from the Taos Plaza. The reception venue was Taos Country Club which has gorgeous views and a beautiful green golf course.

Wedding Reception at Taos Country Club

After ten years and three children, Nicole and Miguel decided to finally make things “official.” Nicole and Miguel’s wedding ceremony took place in Cerro, NM, a small village outside of Questa. Their wedding was on June 11th and it was very smokey from the Wallow Fire in Arizona. The morning was windy and the smoke was pushed aside for beautiful sunset shots with the bride, groom, and entire wedding party at the Taos Country Club reception later in the night. We had an amazing sunset of pinks and oranges which was spectacular for romantics and family portraits on the pond at the golf course.
