Autumn Wedding at El Monte Sagrado

Michelle and James could not have planned their destination wedding any better! Their small outdoor ceremony took place on the perfect day exhibiting the breathtaking fall foliage here in Taos, NM! The leaves on the ground were thick and crunchy and the vines crawling along the adobe were in the height of their saturation. Each tree variation offered a different color as their job was to advertise a wedding in autumn in Northern New Mexico!

Wedding Elopement Destination: Taos!

This bride and groom found and booked their entire destination wedding online! It is actually very common for couples to find their wedding vendors online. In “the olden days,” one had to rely on word-of-mouth to know if a vendor was reliable, this was problematic when planning a destination wedding. Now a simple Google search can tell you so much about your wedding photographer, florist, officiant, and wedding venue. Elopements are increasingly popular and all-inclusive destination wedding packages are created to cater to brides and grooms who just want to sit back and relax and enjoy the most important day of your lives.

These dapper men were wed on a perfect summer day. Taos’ four diamond resort, El Monte Sagrado, was an extremely “green” venue with beautiful green grass fed with grey water! The Episcopalian ceremony was short and intimate with maid of honor and best man giving speeches and the beautiful couple delivering extremely emotional vows.

Lesbian Wedding in Taos, NM

I have shot a lot of same-sex weddings this year! Because Taos is a popular destination wedding location, AND because it is legal for same-sex couples to get married in New Mexico, there are a lot of couples traveling from afar (MANY from Colorado, Texas, and Oklahoma) to exchange wedding vows and rings at a marriage ceremony here in Northern New Mexico!
