We had beautiful April weather for this outdoor Taos wedding with Pueblo Peak as the altar backdrop. This bride and groom intentionally were wed on Earth Day, to honor Mother Earth and their shared love of nature. Lovers of Taos and northern New Mexico, this was a destination wedding as the couple traveled here from Texas! Both sets of their parents also took planes, trains, and automobiles to get to this off-the-beatten=path unique southwest town.
This darling Taos Inn, Adobe and Pines, is an awesome place to get married. The architecture and gardens are a lovely example of that “Taos charm” that is often talked about by the people who visit.
This couple came from Wisconsin to Taos, NM for their destination wedding. The July monsoon kissed their wedding event momentarily and guests took shelter under large pine trees. Everyone (and my equipment) stayed dry. I hear it is good luck to have it rain on your wedding day.
Claire and David were married in the courtyard with a wooden St. Francis overlooking the ceremony. The labyrinth is an equally beautiful place to be wed at this venue.
There’s a different excitement at elopements. The elopement wedding ceremony is completely about the couple. Not about the wedding party. Not about the guests. Not about the flower girl or the ring bearer.
Elopements are the wedding ceremonies that are emotional for the bride and groom. The wedding vows that aren’t ever put on for show. An elopement is when the couples’ entire focus is on one another. It’s about each other. Totally.
Taos, NM is a unique place for an elopement. It is for the couple that wants a rare backdrop. It’s off the beaten path. It’s the road less followed. Taos is place with “charm.” A place with wonderful weather, stunning views, and colorful sunsets.
