    Incredible elopement in Taos!

    My wife and I decided at the last minute that we wanted to celebrate our 5th anniversary by getting married in Taos, NM (one of our favorite places!). We found Dan through a quick web search and although our preferred day was only 3 days away we thought we would give him a call and see if he was available. Dan answered immediately and checked his planner and made miracles happen :) He was available for our date and walked us through the process of getting a NM marriage license (a very easy process compared to our home state of TX) as well as lodging, dinner accommodations, and so much more. Dan even offered us the use of his private gardens for our nuptials. On the day of our marriage Dan was available and so accommodating as we added last minute guests to our small party. His gardens are beyond beautiful and the backdrop of the mountains makes for phenomenal pictures. The whole experience was picturesque and NO stress from start to finish. I would highly recommend Dan and the beautiful and hospital town of Taos. We are so glad we said I do in New Mexico!

    The Perfect Choice for our Ceremony

    We were very comfortable with Dan from the very start. His attention to detail and reassuring manner kept us at ease and confident through the entire process. His location recommendation was perfectly in line with the parameters we had provided. The ceremony was extremely well done and very moving. We will never celebrate an anniversary without a toast to Dan!

    I'm honored Jeff! Thank you. Just make sure it is good champagne. Ha! I'm so glad you liked the streamside spot I chose -- it and the sunset light were as magical as you both were!

    Awesome experience for a special day!

    We are so happy with the decision to have Dan officiate our wedding vows. We wanted something intimate, informal and in a natural setting. He recommended the perfect location, was very helpful, professional (yet personable) and responded very quickly when contacted. I would definitely recommend his services!

    Deborah! I loved our little magical spot you selected by the stream. And the evening light was spectacular. Thank you for placing your trust in me.
