Copper Mountain Wedding

Copper Mountain Wedding

I can’t help it. I obsessively check the weather before a wedding. Probably more than the couple does. Sometimes, it’s because I’m hoping for a few degrees of relief (I’m lookin’ at you, Denver in July). Sometimes, like for Melisa and Sam’s Copper Mountain wedding, it’s just to see if it’s going to rain, snow, or be sunny – because all of them had a chance of happening. Continue reading →

Rocky Mountain National Park Elopement

Rocky Mountain National Park Elopement

Jesse and I met Andrea and Chad in-person for the first time on the day of their wedding. They had traveled from Bellingham, Washington, to our equally beautiful state of Colorado for their Rocky Mountain National Park elopement. Continue reading →

Fall Wedding in Vail

Fall Wedding in Vail

Last weekend, rains swept through the mountains, clearing out the smoke from the many forest fires burning in the West. Luckily, that didn’t matter for Genevieve and Jon’s fall wedding in Vail. The Sonnenalp simply closed Ludwig’s glass roof and the ceremony continued on, sheltered from the rain but maintaining the beautiful forest-like atmosphere. Continue reading →

Beaver Creek Wedding

Beaver Creek Wedding

There’s something very respectable about a couple who plans their wedding not really having an idea of how everything’s going to look in the end. You put your best effort in, decide what’s most important to you, and then let the cards fall where they may, determined to enjoy yourself no matter what. That’s how Mo and Trey approached their Beaver Creek wedding. And it sure paid off! Continue reading →

Purgatory Resort Wedding

Purgatory Resort Wedding

When we got Jamie and Eric’s Purgatory Resort wedding invitation in the mail, it had the Milky Way as the background and promised “Dinner, Dancing, and Meteor Shower to Follow” the ceremony. They couldn’t have picked a better spot (Dante’s Peak) or day (one of the peak nights of the Perseid meteor shower) to make good on that promise. Continue reading →

Edgewood Inn Wedding

Edgewood Inn Wedding

When Jesse and I were scouting for Renee and Caleb’s Edgewood Inn wedding last Friday in Woodland Park, we ran into the typical Colorado mountain weather. First it was sunny and hot, then the clouds blew in. Then we had some nice sprinkles, which turned into a downpour and, suddenly, a torrent of hail. And almost as soon as it had started, the weather passed through and left us nice a cool with a beautiful sunset.  Continue reading →

Boettcher Mansion Wedding

Boettcher Mansion Wedding

On our drive up to Kelly and Nick’s Boettcher Mansion wedding on the top of Lookout Mountain, we were a little concerned that we wouldn’t have the views of the mountains we were hoping for. The day was chilly, considering the 90-degree temps we’ve been having all summer, and the mountain was blanketed by clouds. We could barely see around the curves in the road. Continue reading →

Vail Mountain Wedding

Vail Mountain Wedding

Jesse and I woke up bright and early to finish our sojourn into the mountains for our second wedding of the weekend. The drive was gorgeous and we both reflected on how lucky we are to live in such a beautiful state. Vail was bustling with the GoPro Games, which made some of our photo plans a little difficult. But we improvised for Chelsea and Jared’s Vail Mountain wedding – and did so quite successfully, if you ask me. Continue reading →

Mount Vernon Country Club Wedding

Mount Vernon Country Club Wedding

A busy April gave way to a quiet and rainy May. But now, Jesse and I have jumped right back into wedding season with Nicole and Jeff’s Mount Vernon Country Club wedding being the first of two weddings last weekend. Tucked up in the foothills, but with a spectacular view of the city, their ceremony was short and sweet, followed by one rockin’ party! Continue reading →
