Callie and Russel came to the mountains of Taos, NM for their annual April vacation which coincided with Callie’s 50th birthday! These two stayed at El Monte Sagrado a beautiful resort in town. We had fun walking around the grounds of El Monte and tracking down the early blooms on trees to use for backgrounds. We had a super calm morning amongst this unusually windy spring so it was fun to be outside in the cool mountain springtime temperatures.
For their 20 year celebration, Cyndi and Jorge renewed their wedding vows on the banks of the Rio Grande in Arroyo Hondo, northern New Mexico. The historic John Dunn Bridge is a beautiful background as it proudly sits over the Big River. This bridge was built in the 1930’s and was the only way to travel into Taos County from the western side of the gorge. Cyndi and Jorge brought their best-dog to stand with them and the ceremony was performed by Dan Jones of Embracing Ceremony. This private vow renewal was done early in the morning as this is a popular local swimming hangout in the afternoon.
