It was unusually hot outside on this June day, but the large cottonwoods and weeping willows at El Monte Sagrado kept everyone cool at this outdoor wedding! Brittany and Reed were perfectly on time for their photos and we were able to get the pre-wedding, ceremony, and altar photos with out a hiccup (hooray)! The bride and groom and guests had so much fun at the ballroom reception with hilarious photo props and tons of laughing! Congratulations to Brittany and Reed!
This young, Texas couple chose Hacienda del Sol in Taos to host their small, destination wedding. After their ceremony, wedding cake, and toast reception, we ventured to a few other locations in and around Taos to take some wedding pictures! This bride and groom were so easy going and had so much fun even though we were doing wedding portraits. Congratulations to beautiful newlyweds, Tasha and Brandon!
The air was crisp and cool but we still had the wonderful opportunity to photograph this Valentine’s Day wedding outside in February! This bride and groom came to Taos from Albuquerque to elope (they brought a few good friends for support). They choose for their wedding to be held on the staircase at El Monte Sagrado in Taos. They choose the staircase so they could see all of their friends perfectly during their wedding ceremony. Congratulations to Martha and Ted!
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!
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.
