After a very wet winter, the mesa is about as green as it gets! Sarah portrayed the desert-green beautifully in her portraiture of this elopement at the Taos gorge overlook. The weekday afternoon was quiet from hikers and passersby as Dan Jones of Embracing Ceremony officiated one of his personable wedding ceremonies. Dan and I both offer slightly different elopement wedding packages that offer our basic service of officiating and photography, and offers add-ons (bouquet, champagne, etc) as well.
Taos is a popular destination wedding location for both large weddings and small, intimate weddings such as this one. This wedding started out with just four guests, but grew as more friends and family heard that these two were getting married in beautiful northern New Mexico. This couple rented a home that was large enough for everyone to stay together, and everyone helped with the wedding decorations and details. The weather was cooperative and the sky was so photogenic. The bride carried silk flowers with turquoise accents. The golden retriever (and dog-of-honor) only stepped on the bride’s dress once. All is well that ends well…happily ever after….
After originally planning a large wedding, this couple took a few steps back and decided to elope to the mountains to have a wedding ceremony that was instead intended only for them. Taos has forests and deserts, mountains, groomed gardens, and natural sage landscapes. Taos has waterfalls and rivers, ponds and lakes…for a small town, we have a big area and versatile backgrounds to work with. Taos is a perfect place for your destination wedding or elopement!
This hike above the waterfall in El Salto is steep and can be a bit treacherous, but it completely worth the absolute privacy and stunning views of the Sangre de Cristos! This venue is not usually included with our elopement wedding packages but is offered as an upgrade. Other venues for our elopement packages include a private garden with mountain views, a pathway labyrinth, and the confluence of the Rio Pueblo and the Rio Grande.
Dan Jones officiated this ceremony and I swear time may have stood still during the vows…of the few people present there was not a dry eye… Now booking for 2020.
The weather was warm and the sudden, small gusts of wind were unpredictable, check out the ceremony pictures that grabbed Julia’s veil!! After a late sprnig, Taos is still waiting for the buds to come in on the trees, which gave us some really pretty mountain views that we don’t have from the Sacred Circle at the El Monte Sagrado in the summertime! Everyone had fun playing games on the Taos Mountain Lawn while enjoying happy hour. The reception took place in El Monte’s main ballroom.
Heather and Joel traveled a long way from their home in Virginia to their intimate, destination wedding in Taos, NM! This couple was all smiles on their March wedding day. Bed and Breakfast, Hacienda del Sol, hosted this wedding in their courtyard with mountain views. The snow made an intense appearance on Taos Mountain and provided a dramatic background and beautiful contrast in the photos. Eight guests came from around the country to join this couple on their wedding day and all guests stayed at this local venue with the bride and groom.
Congratulations to these sweet newlyweds and their beautiful love!!
