After 20 years, these two decided to renew their wedding vows!! The sunset ceremony took place in Ojo Caliente, NM at the spa’s labyrinth. The light was beautiful and the “bride” and “groom” were so relaxed since this was “just” a vow renewal (their words)! The wedding ceremony written by Dan Jones integrated the labyrinth into the words and was spoken as the couple walked the maze. These two showed their light attitude in a high five as they passed one another during their ceremonious walk. A beautiful evening in Ojo Caliente.
For a photographer, there is absolutely nothing like being in the right place at the right time! This couple was walking out to their wedding ceremony spot on the mesa when suddenly a rainbow appeared! This rainbow turned darker and more vivid and then, magically, the second rainbow manifests and shines! I can’t think of a better moment for this bride and groom. To have THESE wedding photos as your own…wow. Stunning.
These ladies selected northern New Mexico’s small village of Arroyo Seco their destination wedding location. The “perfect venue” can many times be the yard of the home rental that you stay in. The New Mexico sky and the various hues of sagebrush lend gorgeous, natural backgrounds for use as the altar and “church.” Local wedding shaman, Sandra Chestnutt, performed an intense ceremony and there wasn’t a dry eye. Even the photographer.
A true elopement, these two came to Taos and tied the knot without anyone else knowing about their wedding! SpiriTaos was in full bloom and it was fun to use the plants with creativity. This ceremony was performed in front of a willow tree which gave us beautiful, even light. Congratulations to Arielle and Michael!
The early morning July air was cool as this young bride and groom waited patiently for their dream wedding…a summertime sunrise elopement in a small, desert, mountain town. This couple came from the city so the sounds of silence were the perfect “music” for their intimate wedding ceremony. The officiant, Dan Jones, wrote a beautiful ceremony integrating the labyrinth walk into the words of the devotions. When the sun broke through over the mountains and instantly warmed the outdoors, this wedding felt so perfect and right. The light in the bride’s eyes was magical.
The labyrinth is one of several private gardens that we offer to be used as a ceremony venue for our larger elopement packages.
Monica and George’s June wedding ceremony was performed at the Angel Fire Resort Overlook. The sunshine was brilliant and the breeze was perfect. The guests were seated and waiting as Monica arrived in a classic Model T to walk down the aisle. The unique altar with antlers was made by Monica and George who are both avid hunters. Congratulations to this local Taos’ couple!
