Destination weddings at the Maroon Bells near Aspen, Colorado, have a unique thing in common, crazy fun stuff that I can’t predict – just happen. It’s truly a special place, and the people who decide to get married there are mountain-loving adventurers.
Laura and Jake tumbled down laughing in the meadow below the amphitheater, and almost fell in the water while wading in Maroon Lake. I actually took a spill later in the day, while photographing Jake kissing the roasted pig, that was served for dinner, when the table collapsed.
Geri and I had a blast trying to keep up with these two at one of our favorite Colorado mountain wedding locations. I had been to Hallam Lake a few times over the years making pictures for the Glenwood Post and The Denver Post. It’s really a cool and laid-back place for a wedding reception, including a fire pit for guests to sit around while listening to music.
Watching Laura and her father dance became a little picture story, as her mother was recording video using her iPhone and documenting their entire dance though teary eyes.
Thank you Laura and Jake for choosing me to photograph your wedding!
Congratulations, Kent & Geri
