Marianne said that she googled, “best place to have wedding” and El Monte Sagrado (a four diamond resort) in Taos, NM came up! So Marianne and Brian came were married at the El Monte, in Taos. The day was cloudy but the rain held off and the light was perfect. Marianne and Brian were all smiles as they tied the knot. This couple LOVED New Mexico and can’t wait to come back again!
Michelle and James could not have planned their destination wedding any better! Their small outdoor ceremony took place on the perfect day exhibiting the breathtaking fall foliage here in Taos, NM! The leaves on the ground were thick and crunchy and the vines crawling along the adobe were in the height of their saturation. Each tree variation offered a different color as their job was to advertise a wedding in autumn in Northern New Mexico!
This incredible couple came from Georgia to get married in Taos, NM! The wedding party was made up of four people, the best friends of the grooms. The shadows were long and the light was beautiful. The ceremony took place right before sunset and the glow on Taos’ mountains was outstanding.
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.
Marsha and Christopher live in Mora, NM! This loving couple came over to Taos to have a beautiful ceremony with Marsha’s parents and their two sons. This small outdoor wedding took place next to the famous Rio Grande Gorge with the Rio Grande Gorge Bridge in the background.
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!
