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 →

Crooked Willow Farms Wedding

Crooked Willow Farms Wedding

Kirsten and Mike are a beautiful anomaly. They’re charming and friendly, but could easily kick your ass. They don’t call attention to themselves, yet you can’t help but notice them. And they’re just as comfortable wielding a bow as they are riding a horse. Their Crooked Willow Farms Wedding was no different. Continue reading →

Chief Hosa Lodge Wedding

Chief Hosa Lodge Wedding

Catherine’s a girl who knows what she wants and goes after that, and that’s something I hold in the highest regard. Her persistence was evident in the many stories shared at Catherine & Kacey’s Chief Hosa Lodge wedding. And even though it was snowy and cold outside, the lodge was warmed by the fire and good company. Continue reading →

Lower Lake Ranch Wedding

Lower Lake Ranch Wedding

Wedding planning is not an easy task. Regardless of how simple you want your wedding to be, there are a myriad of choices you’ll still have to make. Planning long distance is even harder. I’ve never seen a couple step up to the task like Kelsey & Jon did for their Lower Lake Ranch wedding this weekend.  Continue reading →

Devil’s Thumb Ranch Wedding

Devil’s Thumb Ranch Wedding

I’m kind of a word nerd, and as such, I’ve been annoyed recently at how often the word “epic” is thrown around. Replying All on an email is not an “epic fail.” Doing shots at a bar does not make it an “epic” night. Epic should not be a random hashtag thrown into a tweet. But Jessica and Robb’s Devil’s Thumb Ranch wedding? That meets my standards for epic.

Shadow Mountain Ranch Wedding

Shadow Mountain Ranch Wedding

Here’s some life advice: marry someone who will have inflatable raptor fights with you. Leigh & Tyler are lucky to have found their raptor fight partners in each other. Their dinosaur-themed Shadow Mountain Ranch wedding was the perfect laid-back party to celebrate their marriage. Continue reading →
