An Intimate Wedding at El Monte Sagrado

If you’re thinking about getting married in Taos, you can’t do any better than having an intimate wedding at El Monte Sagrado. It is an extraordinary resort and you can be sure everything will be stellar. Not only will every touch be elegant, but the warm and helpful staff will be there for you every step of the way.

Take a minute and enjoy this fairytale wedding video (link at top of the page) which was filmed on-site. It was a real delight to plan Guinevere’s and Bill’s ceremony and to serve as their Taos wedding officiant in their intimate wedding at El Monte Sagrado.

Following are a series of pictures so you can see some of the really wonderful opportunities for memorable pictures at El Monte Sagrado. This wedding took place outdoors on December 26, 2017. I can’t guarantee it would always be this pleasant. We were actually disappointed at the lack of snow in the photos.
