My husband and I chose a destination wedding in Taos and we couldn't have been more pleased with placing our trust and ceremony in Dan's hands. He created a beautiful, custom set of vows that he wrote after a initial phone conversation about a month prior. We didn't hear or see the vows until our ceremony at El Monte Sagrado. Our family that was present even commented on how lovely our vows were. Thanks Dan!

Dan was such a joy to work with! He was so quick to respond to my emails. I had some specific requests regarding the ceremony and he was able to partner those requests with his program beautifully. He had a wonderful pace during the ceremony and cared about each detail.

Dan was amazing! We enjoyed a beautiful ceremony with Taos Mtn as our backdrop in his picture perfect gardens complete w a running stream, variety of beautiful flowers and plants throughout, and the peaceful mountains surrounding us as we took our vows. Our guests all commented our wedding was the most moving ceremony they had ever attended. Dan not only orchestrated the perfect ceremony that fit our personalities and tastes, but he made it seem effortless. We had no stress whatsoever thanks to Dan's capable handling of everything from questions about license to photographer and venues for perfect romantic dinner following the ceremony. We would highly recommend Dan Jones to any couple looking for a romantic, personalized ceremony! Thank you again Dan!

Dan was a pleasure to work with for our wedding in Taos. The readings & vows he incorporated into our ceremony were very personalized & unique, as well as beautifully meaningful. It meant a lot to us that it wasn't a "cookie cutter" ceremony. I would recommend Dan without reservation!

The ability of Dan to put the bride & groom at ease, but for us to understand (& embrace) the sanctitity of our commitment through our ceremony are what struck me. That speaks of his professionalism. The time we spoke on the phone for him to get an understanding of who we are and what we were looking for in a ceremony; He nailed it !
Also I hear he's an awesome MTB biker, so if your ever in the Taos region....

We cannot express enough thanks or gratitude to Dan for our amazing ceremony. He went the extra mile in so many ways to make our day special. From scouting out the perfect location (we were visiting from Indiana for our wedding), including sentiments from our family that could not attend, his easy going yet always professional nature, his sense of humor... it was truly a fantastic adventure from beginning to end. I feel confident in saying that no one else could have performed our ceremony with such dignity, grace, and beauty.

Do not hesitate to contact Embracing Ceremony for your wedding... Dan is wonderful, and will make your day more special than you could ever imagine!

My husband and I married in a private ceremony with only Dan, a photographer and our three children present. We planned our elopement from out-of-town. Dan was responsive and thoughtful, and extremely respectful of our very specific wishes while creating our ceremony. Not only that, but Dan took time to familiarize himself with us and our ceremony. We basically custom-built our ceremony, complete with readings and poems, and Dan took the time to read them, practice them and made sure they were executed perfectly during our ceremony. I have only positive things to say about this lovely officiant.

Dan was a wonderful officiant, and we were extremely pleased with our ceremony. It was just right for us and our lifestyles and beliefs. We were touched by the meaningful passages and poetry. We also appreciated his flexibility in accommodating us in our travel plans and potential weather changes. We will treasure the day always. Thanks Dan!

Dan Jones was such a pleasure to work with. He took the time to get to know us as a couple and to know what we were looking for in a wedding ceremony. Dan was patient with us during the stressful wedding planning process and provided gentle (and helpful) reminders to make sure that we had everything in order prior to the wedding day. Our ceremony was absolutely perfect and was personalized in ways that made it incredibly meaningful for us and for our guests.

Right from the beginning Dan Jones of Embracing Ceremony was great. He responded promptly to my inquiring email and was very attentive to our wants! He displayed great flexibility in scheduling our elopement ceremony as we wanted to do it within 3 weeks. Dan also helped us decide where to have our ceremony which happened to be at his beautiful home in El Prado. Our ceremony was absolutely beautiful. He has an amazing talent and kept us and our two witnesses engaged the whole time. His beautiful words are still resounding in our minds. Dan couldn't have given us a better location and provided us with great memories and I believed we left him with many laughs. We highly recommend Dan Jones to be your officiant!!!!

Dan was, in one word, AMAZING!!! He helped us in every step to design the most PERFECT wedding. I could not have asked for a better day and a more beautiful ceremony. The response from guests who attended were equally exciting. Dan was profession, as would be expected but above that he was CREATIVE in the ceremony and the vows. He helped us to incorporate the children, family and guests. The day was absolutely PERFECT. I highly recommend Dan to anyone who wants a special and unforgettable ceremony.

Dan's place felt like home to us. We wanted a natural setting outdoors with beautiful scenery and a special ceremony that was unique to us. He exceeded our every expectation. The ambiance with Hawaiian music for two Hawaiian girls was more than we could have asked for!!! We actually were familiar with all of the music and he was so intuitive to our every desire in what a marriage ceremony should be. Mahalo and Aloha, Vickie and Ula

We could not have asked for anything better!!! We are a couple from Hawaii that got married in Dan's beautiful garden with the mountains in the back drop. When we got there Dan had hawaiian music playing and also dressed up with a hawaiian flower tie. He also created our ceremony to include traditions from hawaii as well too! We did not know what to expect but had such a great feeling from talking with him over the phone and working with him via email. When we were done it was a 100% more than what we had imagined. He was kind and easy to work with which made the experience that much better! I am so glad we found him!

The Universe led us to Dan Jones of Embracing Ceremony and everything could not have been more PERFECT! He has a gift to transform simple words from a questioner and a few conversations into a powerfully moving personalized ceremony. It was SHEER BLISS from the top of the mesa.
