Katie and Rocky were married at Piney River Ranch near Vail, Colorado on September 19, 2015. You might remember these two and their three fur babies from their engagement session last spring. Weddings that include dogs or other animals such as horses, Lama’s, birds etc. seem to attract me! Then when you add on, camping […]
Mary and Tim were married in the backyard of a home they rented in the Blue River neighborhood, south of Breckenridge, Colorado, near Hoosier Pass, September 12, 2015.
Wedding officiant, Julie Wright-Kile, performed the ceremony which included a hand-fasting element where the right hands of the bride and groom are tied together using cord, that Tim wove out of wool in an Irish pattern.
After the ceremony, Mary and Tim wanted a few mountain scenic pictures, so we drove to the top of Hoosier Pass at 11,542 feet, on the Continental Divide, with Mount Lincoln in the background.
We were back at the house in the woods before sunset, in time to do a series of family history pictures before dinner, with dancing, toasting, cake-cutting and a bouquet-and-garter belt toss from the balcony.
It’s always a pleasure to photograph destination weddings in the Rocky Mountains where everyone is relaxed and not in a hurry.
Having an intimate, mountain wedding kept the stress down and the fun factor high.
A special thanks to Mary and Tim for choosing me to document their wedding day.
Kelly and Luke were married at the Redstone Inn August 1, 2015 in Redstone, Colorado. This was a true destination Colorado mountain wedding with all the guests staying over night at this historic Victorian hotel on the banks of the Crystal River.
Shortly after I arrive while photographing Kelly getting ready, in walks the florist with the bouquets and it was a Amy, a bride from a past wedding in Carbondale which is just down the valley. She is the lead designer at Susan’s Flowers and didn’t wonderful job.
Kelly went to college at Wichita State University where I also graduated and had a contingent of friends who drove out to celebrate. They partied on the dance floor until midnight and then it went from a dance party to a pool party. Keep in mind this isn’t in Mexico, it’s in the mountains.
Thank you Kelly & Luke for choosing me to document your wedding day and for treating me like a friend!
Mimi and Lauren’s engagement session almost didn’t happen because the road to the top of Mt. Evans was closed. Mimi quickly came up with the idea to drive up Clear Creek Canyon to a spot on the river where she kayaks and where Lauren rock climbs. We caught the last of the light in the canyon as they toasted to their adventures past and future.
We then decided to travel to another location to catch the scenic beauty of the mountains and plains at sunset. Again, Mimi picked the perfect spot: the City of Boulder open space in the high plains grasslands, with the Front Range foothills in the distance. As we drove up, a rain storm was blowing in. After a few quick pictures, we sat out the rest of the storm while finishing the last of the champagne with cheese and crackers.
Mimi and Lauren will be married on September 27th in Edwards, Colorado.
