Della Terra Wedding in Estes Park
Ashley and Eric’s Della Terra wedding in Estes Park wrapped up the bulk of our wedding season, which got me thinking a lot about weddings. And the conclusion I came to is that weddings and quests have a lot in common.
They’re both the beginning of a new adventure. But it’s important to keep in mind that they’re just that: the beginning. The adventure is long and filled with ups and downs, rewards and perils. Bringing a spirit of adventure to your marriage (and your quest) is perhaps one of the healthiest things you can do.
Wedding days and quests also necessitate special attire. Sometimes that’s one single outfit. Sometimes you need some options, depending on what greets you on your wedding day/quest. However, you should always wear what makes you feel the most invincible. (Bonus points if it’s made by someone who cares deeply for you.)
Good weather helps, but it’s not a requirement. Luckily, in the case of Ashley and Eric’s wedding, we had ample sunshine and clear skies at night for our astro-portraiture.
Finally, every good wedding or quest takes place in an epic environment. Between Della Terra during the day and Rocky Mountain National Park in the pitch black night, we had an abundance of stellar views that felt straight out of a video game.
Ashley and Eric, thank you so much for including us in your legendary adventure! We had such a great time with you and wish you a lifetime of questing.
If you’re not into sharing your deepest feelings about your soon-to-be-spouse in front of everyone at the ceremony, that’s ok! Write letters that you can exchange in the morning or ask your photographer to add in enough time to do private vows after your first look. Sure, we’ll still be there, but we’re discreet. Plus, you won’t have 200 eyes watching you!
