This couple did not want anything fancy for their wedding so they decided to get married at the Taos County Courthouse. Judge Shannon officiated the casual wedding ceremony. The wedding vows and ring exchange was completed in less than five minutes, it took longer to get the marriage license! When we walked outside we were greeted with a winter snowstorm (there wasn’t a bit of snow on the ground when we entered the courthouse) which was a surprise and certainly good luck on a wedding day. Congratulations to Alida and Mark!
Julie and Julian had a private and intimate ceremony at a location they stumbled upon while hiking outside of Taos. The cross and arch adorned this outdoor scene and a sign “heaven awaits” was a little walk away. The couple and their children took part in a sand ceremony together. The children were also included in the nuptials when the bride and groom recited vows to one another and to their kids as well.
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.
This lovely bride and groom came from Texas to Taos for the wedding of their dreams!
The bride’s mother and sister are florists so of course every flower was in perfect place, a wonderful display of beauty and color!
The wedding party wore royal blue which was vibrant under the grey skies. The San Geronimo Lodge was so photogenic with the beautiful grounds and wonderful adobe architecture.
