Hearing Impaired Brides Elope to Taos

Hearing Impaired Brides Elope to Taos

It was such a great pleasure to photograph these brides, whom are hearing impaired! These gals were so amazing to watch during the wedding ceremony. The emotion that they exhibited in their signing was beautiful. The vows were interpreted so everyone knew what these women were signing; as so these women knew what the minister was speaking. I loved how these ladies held one another’s vows when it was time to “recite” them, how they were so connected through their eyes. Congratulations to these lovely gals! I am excited to photograph another hearing impaired wedding!

This couple came from Denver, Colorado to celebrate their destination wedding in Taos, NM! The Kit Carson Home was an awesome outdoor location with their darling courtyard complete with refinished antiques, turquoise window sills and purple flowers. There were approximately 30 guests present. The afternoon, summer wedding was short and sweet and ended with Scottish bagpipes to celebrate the bride’s Scottish heritage. This perfect ceremony was followed by an elegant dinner at locals’ favorite restaurant, The Love Apple.

Wedding and Reception in Dulce, New Mexico

Wedding and Reception in Dulce, New Mexico

The weather in Ducle, NM started out perfectly on this June wedding day. And then it rained. And rained and rained. The electricity went out in the church immediately after the ceremony but everyone breathed a sigh of relief when the reception site had a back up generator. This wedding reception was long, loud, and fun. All guests were up and dancing to everything from an Irish wedding song to Psy’s ‘Gangnam Style.’

April Wedding in Blizzard at Taos Country Club

April Wedding in Blizzard at Taos Country Club

This Taos Country Club wedding was one I photographed several (six?) years ago! I wanted to post these pictures because it is a good reminder of how unpredictable the weather is here in Northern New Mexico!

When I started to photograph this bride and groom prior to the wedding ceremony, the Sangre de Cristo mountain range was barely visible, but it WAS visible. After the wedding we had a completely white/grey backdrop as the snow storm had moved into Taos and was making it’s way out to the country club! And, then it started snowing…
Five hours later the golf club’s green grass was a blanket of snow. The bride and groom were still in good spirits and even stepped outside for a few more memorable wedding images.
