    Embracing Ceremony exceeded our expectations.

    My now husband and I are so happy we chose Dan Jones of Embracing Ceremony to officiate our ceremony. Dan was very responsive to our ideas of what we wanted our ceremony to be, and his assistance was invaluable. He was patient, sensitive, creative, and agreeable. All of our guests commented on how wonderful he was. "How did you find him?" many of our friends asked. It was our lucky day when a friend recommended Dan Jones and Embracing Ceremony.

    Embracing Ceremony's reply:

    Thank you Celeste. I enjoyed working with you and Bard and am glad together we created the exact ceremony you were after! Yay!

    Smooth, stress free, accommodates our needs

    Dan did a great job. Was accommodating and given the circumstances of mother nature was still able to make it feel like a special day. We had a thunderstorm come through at the time our the ceremony. Dan had a covered area we was able to do the ceremony. Because of the rain he was able to let us come back the following day with better weather and take our pictures. We had come to taos to do some hiking and Dan also gave us advice different trails and what to expect. Dan is a very nice man, well spoken, and made you feel at home.

    Embracing Ceremony's reply:

    It was great to meet you both and I'm always happy to share hiking news about the many hiking opportunities around Taos. I'm glad we could work around the (unusual) amount of rain we're currently getting in Taos!
