Darcy and Brian were wed under a chuppah. Symbolically, the chuppah is a house that represents that the bride and groom’s life will be spent together. The wedding ceremony took place at El Monte Sagrado’s Sacred Circle and was set up in a circular fashion. The reception was a festive occasion with lawn games outdoors and a cocktail hour before a sit down dinner was served.
What fun to document the first time that same sex marriage licenses were issued in Taos County! New Mexicans came to the courthouse to pick up their marriage licenses and to get married! At least four weddings took place immediately, directly in front of the Taos County Courthouse. There were tears of joy and sounds of happiness as people finally began their “legal” road of “happily ever after.”
It’s the little details from wedding day that make your day so memorable (and my day so fun to photograph)! Ashleigh and Matthew didn’t miss a beat when doing their wedding planning. The dress was altered and pressed, the wedding rings were shined, the decorative Ball jars were adorned with pink roses and baby’s breath, hung from the apple orchard trees with great care. This wedding took place in the beautiful Taos Ski Valley with the ceremony on the bride’s private hacienda. The reception took place at the popular St. Bernard.
Lia and Brandon were married in the Sacred Circle at the El Monte Sagrado. Wedding day started out with extremely rainy conditions but the weather cleared up in perfect timing for the arrival of the guests and the sun came out just as the by the beautiful bride walked down the aisle.
Jessica and Carlos experienced the wedding of their dreams when they were married on top of a mountain in Angel Fire, NM! The ceremony was officiated by a friend of the family and the food was catered by the brother of the groom (who was also the best man)! This beautiful bride put a lot of thought into the details of her wedding. For instance, she made a gorgeous broach bouquet instead of a traditional bouquet with fresh flowers. The groomsmen wore “superhero” boutonnieres that were also made by this creative bride. There were so many laughs at this wedding, this couple will indeed live “happily ever after.”
There is not a more beautiful backdrop for a wedding than the Sangre de Cristo mountain range that adorns the landscape of Taos, NM! For this reason, KTAOS Solar Center is a picture-perfect place to get married. Ali and Brian had an outdoor wedding in front of Taos Mountain and an outdoor reception to follow. After dinner was served, the bride, groom, and guests moved inside the venue for the first dance, the father/daughter dance, and to boogie down.
