This incredible couple came from Georgia to get married in Taos, NM! The wedding party was made up of four people, the best friends of the grooms. The shadows were long and the light was beautiful. The ceremony took place right before sunset and the glow on Taos’ mountains was outstanding.
There is nothing like standing next to class 3 rapids to photograph the union of two wonderful women! This couple came all of the way from Indiana to Taos, NM (well, actually Pilar, NM) to have a legal marriage! The wedding took place where two rivers come together, the perfect metaphor for a wedding ceremony. The roar from the water and the hollers of “congrats” from the whitewater rafters intensified the already extraordinary energy of this wedding. Officiant, Dan Jones of Embracing Ceremonies, delivered a gorgeous ceremony, there was not a dry eye among the guests. Congrats to Kim and Melissa!
The beauty that SpiriTaos offers is unconditionally pristine! Every plant and stone is perfectly placed by officiant (and gardener) Dan Jones. Each month offers various flowering plants, fruits, and vegetables! The sound of water is present from everywhere in the garden and the energy just feels “right” for a wedding. The unobstructed mountain views are the perfect backdrop for your wedding at an altar adorned with heart rocks and red willow.
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.
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!
