This photogenic couple came all the way from New Orleans to Taos, NM to elope! The light was absolutely perfect for the wedding ceremony which was officiated by Dan Jones of Embracing Ceremony. There was a light breeze and it was so quiet on the mesa as it was a Wednesday evening and not a lot of hikers were about. The groom (a tattoo artist!) requested a green pepper in the bride’s bouquet, and there were two! Congratulations to Denise and Walter and many more happy journeys.
I’m so excited for these two to tie-the-knot at Angel Fire Resort this summer!! Both Monica and George are locals in Taos, New Mexico. We met out at the bridge to get the Taos landscapes in the backgrounds: the gorge, the Rio Grande, and Three Peaks. Both Monica and George had an outfit change so they could get some casual and some ‘fancy’ photos! It doesn’t show in these engagement pictures, but the temperature was COLD on this January day and no doubt these two are looking forward to their warm June wedding!
This bride and groom were given the gift of “perfect weather” on their wedding day. An early May wedding outdoors in Northern New Mexico can be a very unpredictable event. Thunderstorms with possible snow was forecast up until the night prior to the ceremony, and then the weather magically changed and we had sunshine instead! Jackie had her brother and her two best girlfriends stand up at the altar with her. Tyler had his father and son, Anakin, stand up with him. Anakin was not happy with his suspenders and chose to hangout with his grandma instead. Turkey vultures circled overhead and a warm breeze made the bride’s hairpiece and dress dance so appropriately. Congratulations to these newlyweds!
Another wonderful bride and groom from Colorado! This fun couple had their wedding out on the mesa in Taos, NM. with the Sange de Cristo mountain range and Rio Grande Gorge Bridge adorning the background. The bride and flower girl walked through the sagebrush to meet the groom out on the rim of the gorge who waited with about 25 guests. The ceremony was simple and sweet and was followed by a first dance. We had perfect weather and the next day it snowed over a foot, wedding luck!
Congratulations to Sarah and Paris!
This bride and groom took a getaway weekend from Albuquerque and came up to Taos for their elopement at the Rio Grande Gorge. Their ceremony was officiated by Dan Jones of Embracing Ceremony. After the vows the couple exchanged necklaces instead of rings. The ceremony is currently a secret until they announce their marriage “down the road” when they are with friends and family. Congratulations to Denise and Jon!
