Desert Elopement With Mountains as Backdrop

Desert Elopement With Mountains as Backdrop

Joy and Rob traveled from California to New Mexico to elope among the mountains of Arroyo Seco. Taos Mountain is considered very sacred to the Indigenous population in Taos. Joy and Rob were married in a ceremony that paid a great deal of respect to Taos Mountain (Pueblo Peak) and the Sangre de Cristo mountain range. This couple honored the native wedding traditions in the southwest, including the traditional wedding vase ceremony. As soon as the ceremony ended, the sun exploded into the golden hour. We walked through a high-desert field for some romanticy photographs and the bride and groom found a horseshoe (sure to be good luck)! Congrats to these amazing people!

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.

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.

It’s always fun to photograph one of our wedding packages at The Taos Goji Farm!
This couple has been together since they were 13/14 year old. They were so easy going and fun to photograph!!
This destination wedding (elopement in fact) with officiant Dan Jones presiding, took place while the flower girl ran around doing her own thing (she didn’t go far)! After the ceremony we were able to capture some fun family photos with the alpacas. Congratulations to these young newlyweds who have already been together over a decade!

Destination Wedding and Elopement Wedding Ceremony in Town of Taos

Destination Wedding and Elopement Wedding Ceremony in Town of Taos

This was a delightful elopement! This couple came from Northern California to elope in Taos! Judge Shannon presided over the very short ceremony which left us a lot of time to get some romanticy shots of the bride and groom. We managed to carry out this ceremony/photography during a clearing on a stormy evening. Congratulations to these newly weds and thank you for coming to Northern New Mexico for your destination wedding!
