Married in Plein Air

Picture this: a beautiful, outdoor wedding ceremony surrounded by lush greenery and fragrant flowers.  Why not document it the old fashioned way, with paint!

Here are photos from a wedding I did last summer in Taos, which was held at El Monte Segrado, a beautiful resort setting nestled in the Taos valley.  We were excited to have a fine artist, Elizabeth Jose on site to capture the vows on canvas.  She began blocking in the surroundings as guests arrived, sketched out the couple during the ceremony and finished the details during the cocktail hour, as guests sipped drinks and watched her apply delicate brushstrokes.

What a wonderful way to remember such a special day!  More photos of this beautiful wedding to come soon!
