An Art Museum Wedding or Elopement? Sure!

Have you ever considered an art museum wedding or elopement? It’s a fun twist and very unique! There are lots of museums in Taos and I know at least some of them accommodate weddings because I’ve officiated there.

Taos Art Museum offers fantastic lighting for photos at your art museum wedding.

But there is one special museum that I think offers a bit more than others. And that is the Taos Art Museum located in the Fechin House.

Fechin House Weddings

The Fechin House not only houses an extraordinary art collection, but the architecture is worth seeing itself. The story of Fechin can be found here. He was an accomplished artist as well as wood carver which is my favorite aspect of the house. Imagine a couple of your wedding photos with the backdrop of ornate wood carving!

The Fechin House is know for its ornate wood carvings, which make perfect photo opportunities!

If you’re eloping, I have a special arrangement with the Taos Art Museum and can arrange to have your ceremony there. See my Packages Page for more information. We can even arrange to have your ceremony in a room of the Fechin House which is not typically used for weddings. In addition to the sun-drenched second story room for your ceremony, there is the Fechin Studio which has amazing light from the immense north window. Or the grounds themselves offer a serene garden amongst the mature trees.
