Destination Elopement Packages At-A-Glance Chart

Our dazzling wedding venue, SpiriTaos Gardens is included in our destination elopement packages!

Prospective couples perusing my website for the various destination elopement packages offered by Embracing Ceremony have given me the feedback that my elopement packages, particularly my all-inclusive elopement packages, can be confusing because of the variety of options and offerings. For a quick browse, there is too much copy to wade through. So we’ve developed an At-A-Glance chart of all our packages, including for larger micro or intimate weddings. This makes the comparisons easier and is a great launching pad for our services. The Packages At-A-Glance chart will show you each package, its cost and what is included. Once you’ve found the one that might be right for you, visit the full listing for that package to get the details. You can also inquire directly of us to have your specific questions answered.

Destination Elopement Package Components

All of our destination elopement packages include our beautiful, flower-filled SpiriTaos Garden venue. We do have a covered ramada for your ceremony that offers protection from the elements. And we have many spots throughout the gardens that make for lovely elopement spots. You can walk through the gardens upon arrival and decide on the spot that you like best. And as you look around, we’ll take as many pictures as you like on your device to start the process of capturing your special day.

Dan Jones, your wedding minister, will officiate your 15 minute ceremony that you have selected at booking. Your choices will include Interfaith, Secular or Spiritual. And after the ceremony, Dan will continue to take pictures in the many locations throughout the gardens. They are designed to showcase your love against the backdrop of sacred Taos Mountain and in the colorful flower beds. There are streams, ponds (think reflections!) and if your elopement is in the evening we might capture the magic Taos light and sunset beauty.

Photography Options

Would you prefer professional images? We have elopement photographers available as an add-on to our packages. One option is for an hour with our photographer, capturing approximately 100 images. You’ll have a hard time selecting from the images which ones you’d like to purchase. Or you can do what most couples do and purchase all of the images which you receive via thumb drive, CD or through Dropbox.

You can also book the full elopement photography option when you book your date. This option will include the hour with our photographer as well as all of the images (approximately 100) which you can choose to receive on a thumb drive, CD or through Dropbox.

Can You Provide Extras in Your Destination Elopement Packages?

Yes, if there are other things you’d like us to take care of for your elopement package, let us know at the time of booking. We can provide a garden bouquet, a boutonnière, a bottle of New Mexican champagne, etc. We also have a resource list for you that you can use if you’re looking for a fine dining option after the ceremony, the quintessential Taos accommodation or where to have your hair done ahead of time.

If you’re eloping with your immediate family, best friends or truly eloping with just the two of you, Embracing Ceremony has a package that will minimize your planning and take care of your wedding-day plans.
