    Amazing staff left our guests Wowed!

    Our daughter got married at the El Monte Sagrado, a place we have visited often through her life. It was special to our family, so our daughter chose it for her wedding. We had guests from across the US who had never been to Taos but made the journey to celebrate the day. (Many will return!) An accident left the groom's father unable to attend. Melisha, the amazing event planner for El Monte Sagrado, helped us connect with Sweet William Photography so that we could capture the event to share with the groom's father. After a beautiful rehearsal on the Taos mountain lawn the day before the wedding day, it rained on the wedding day. You know that you are working with a dedicated event staff when you have to call so many last minute changes. Melisha and her staff did an amazing job. The staff was willing to go umbrella shopping three hours before the wedding! (I'm not sure Taos would have 100 umbrellas since it never rains all day in July!!) We moved the event inside to a lovely room overlooking the Sacred Circle. Planning the wedding and prior to the last minute shuffles, Melisha accommodated clergy and photographers from Texas and musicians and make up artists from Santa Fe and Albuquerque that she had never worked with. She helped us find Sweet William Photo and Videography who captured the event last minute so the groom's father could participate. It was a memorable event for everyone! Thanks to Melisha and all of the El Monte Sagrado staff that made the event a great triumph over the challenges! It was so meaningful to all! It was absolutely the most perfect wedding!

    The most beautiful place to have a wedding in Taos. The hotel grounds are beautiful for pictures. Spa services were amazing. So relaxing and family and pet friendly. The sales department aka wedding planner was above and beyond amazing. Looking forward to going back to celebrate wedding anniversaries.
