The golden leaves on the green grass were in contrast and so beautiful for this autumn wedding hosted at local bed and breakfast in Taos, NM. The Cottonwoods stood over the wedding with Taos Mountain views with pride and respect. Devon and Case, who claimed that they were awkward in photos, were adorable at the early afternoon ceremony. Their vows were well written, funny and heartfelt and most of the gusts cried. There was a slight breeze and a warm sunshine that was perfect mountain wedding weather for falltime. Our little mountain town is the perfect host for October weddings.
On New Year’s Day I had the pleasure of photographing this formal resort elopement in the round room of El Monte Sagrado. Howard Bad Hand led the soft vows after a quiet sage smudging ceremony. The wedding couple was blessed as were their rings and quiet prayers were offered. The tobacco ties were gorgeous and because the “something blue” of the wedding.
