This bride and groom had a beautiful wedding ceremony which honored the marigolds and the orange and black traditional colors of the El Dia de los Muertos celebration. They had their best friends and family with them on this celebration during the golden hour. The sun danced in the shadows and gave us a lot of creative light to play with. The bride was all smiles and the ceremony was complete with a knot-tying ceremony. The officiant was a dear friend of the bride’s and came from out of town. Congratulations to fun couple, Amy and Ross!
This bride and groom planned their destination wedding on the perfect October weekend, when the autumn leaves were in their height of their color! The Angel Fire resort was stunning with gold leaves dusting the ground with beauty and texture. The bride’s autumn bouquet choice was vivid and brilliant with the surrounding fall foliage. The air was still during the ceremony on what was otherwise a breezy afternoon. Congratulations to this lovely couple on their perfect autumn wedding day!
This bride and groom were long time Taos locals before moving away and settling up in Colorado. The church, First Presbyterian of Taos, is conveniently located in the middle of Taos next to Kit Carson Park and a beautiful church for a wedding ceremony in a sanctuary. The exterior and interior of this old church are the traditional Pueblo style: adobe on the outside and adorned indoors with vigas on the ceiling and a simple cross on the wall. Afterwards the photographer took this couple out for a few photographs with the great Taos Mountain. Congratulations to lovely newlyweds!
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!
