Wedding Under Taos Cottonwoods

Amanda and Jason came to Taos from Albuquerque to recite their wedding nuptials at the green resort, El Monte Sagrado. This June day was absolutely perfect for a wedding. The grass was green and the flowers around this resort were in bloom and fragrant. The reception followed the ceremony in the Rio Grande Ballroom where the bride and groom had their first dance. The wedding party consisted of four girls, four guys, a flower girl, and a ring bearer.

El Monte Sagrado– The Sacred Circle

“We have all stood in places that made us pause and feel the earth beneath our feet — the Sacred Circle is just such a place. At the heart of El Monte Sagrado, this green space of 80-year-old cottonwood trees is said to have once been a Native American dancing ground. Flowing waterfalls, stone water sculptures, a wooden footbridge, and a trout-stocked pond invite you to stop and enjoy the moment. Lush regional plants and flowers offer a place to meditate, contemplate and relax. The Sacred Circle is also a very special venue for private events and weddings.” –Taken from the El Monte Sagrado website

Wedding at Green Resort: El Monte Sagrado

Jolynn and Manual are both from Mora, NM and came to Taos for a beautiful wedding at El Monte Sagrado. This couple had a guest list of over 125 people which is quite large for a Thursday wedding ceremony, but quite small for a New Mexico wedding (many times the guest list is over 350 people)! The bride and bridesmaids had prior experience in flowers, so they designed their own bouquets which really look stunning in the photographs. The wedding cake you see is a very traditional style of wedding cake from this area. May this lovey couple and their new combined family live “happily ever after.”

A Destination Wedding at El Monte Sagrado

Andrea and Tom came from the east coast to enjoy their destination wedding in Taos, NM. Their intimate ceremony at El Monte Sagrado took place in The Sacred Circle and was officiated by Reverend Susan Varon. The only guests were the bride and the groom’s sets of parents. The clouds provided beautiful natural lighting for photos with gorgeous green backdrop.
