Ali & Kyle / Colorado Mountain Wedding Photography / Winter Park, CO

Well…turns out I still have some awesome weddings to blog from 2014– holy cow!  Including this one…which was amazeballs.  Yep, I said that.

I love these two.

When I book a wedding, I am booking new friends.  I am booking an investment into someone else’s life.  I truly feel it’s important to understand a couple’s story, and truly CARE about them…and their wedding day!  I really enjoyed Ali & Kyle’s wedding– not because it was at a beautiful Ski resort on top of a Mountain on a PERFECT Colorado sunny day…but because I formed a real connection with them over the last year.  It meant something– and I cried a little at their ceremony.  THAT is why I do what I do.

What does all that mean for this blog post?  Well..nothing really…except to let them know how honored I was to be there– and how much I enjoyed getting to know them– and how I with them the very very best!!!! 😉

Ceremony and Reception held at The Sunspot Lodge, on top of the Winter Park mountain!  You will see that in addition to a gorgeous blue-sky day, we got a KILLER sunset as well– really….could you ask for more!?  Then there is Ali– holy cow woman…you looked STUNNING!!!  Kyle– you looked pretty dapper yourself 😉  All the vendors that made this day so gorgeous really did an amazing job- florals, table centerpieces, etc….and Emily at the Sunspot Lodge is so wonderful!

We got out once the stars came out (and it got pretty darn cold by then actually!  Ali braved it!)- and played a bit with some Star and light painting shots!  It was a bit of a challenge to get a spot with the lights showing from the Ski lift (that is light that is lighting up the trees in the star shot)…but they came out cool and was fun!

So- Congrats you two!  Thanks for having us a part of your adventure!

Shout out to my Partner in crime– Kristy Wedel!  Many of these images are hers as well!  Couldn’t have done it without you chica!

Alyssa & Mike’s Fall Splendor Wedding!~ Colorado Mountain Wedding Photography~ Vail, Colorado

These two.  Seriously two of the nicest people I have ever met.  After my initial consult with them– I was so excited and hopeful to get to shoot their wedding– they just seemed like such a great couple, and just good people….and you know, sometimes you just want to surround yourself with people like that 😉

We did their Engagement session at Red Rocks last Winter– and had a blast! They are truly adorable together– and Alyssa was a trooper in her high heel boots as I had them literally climbing snowy mountainsides!

As the date of their wedding came closer– I was so stoked– the color in the hills was going to be PERFECT!!!  In Fall in Colorado– especially in the mountains– you could either have gorgeous blue skies and killer color– or a blizzard….and there is no telling until about the day before!  Well, as you can see– we hit the jackpot.  The day was absolutely steller– I was actually hot!!  That color too– really!???  It was just amazing.

Everything really fell in to place, and everyone looked fantastic, the venue (Donovan Pavilion, Vail) and day was gorgeous, and fun was had by all!!  The ceremony was so beautiful- as Alyssa’s Dad was part of the Choir that sang- Ave Maria.  It was so sweet and sentimental.  I have a whole bunch of dancing photos from this wedding too– these peeps all loved a good time!

Thanks to all the vendors who made it a great day–and THANK YOU to Alyssa and Mike who let me be a part of it!  I wish you all the very best and can’t wait to take pictures of your babies 😉 (yep…I went there….)

A very special thank you to my partner in crime that day– Erin Cady– and although I try to use mostly photos that I take form my camera for blog posts…sometimes I can’t tell which are hers, and which are mine! lol!  So there are a handful of photos on this post that are hers as well!  Pregnant and all– she put her big girl panties on and rocked it with me this year! Thanks mama!

Stephanie and Jeremy are Married!~ Colorado Mountain Wedding Photography~ Briarwood Inn, Golden, CO

I met these two lovely people not long before their actual wedding day– and I just knew right then that we would have an awesome connection.  You just know sometimes.

I was honored to be the one to capture their wedding- and joining of families!  I truly love weddings when not only two people become a family, but kiddos are part of the deal as well!  It’s beautiful seeing these relationships form, and the excitement from the kids!  I just love the photo (below) with Stephanie just tearing up looking at Jeremy getting pics with the kids….it was a beautiful moment of pure happiness.

The wedding took place at the Briarwood Inn in Golden, which is a wonderful small intimate mountain style venue, just outside Golden.  I had just been there the week before (see last wedding post!), but it’s amazing how the couple, and the story, truly make it different!  It was a very relaxed and beautiful ceremony and reception- and I was honored to be there!  Congrats you two!!

Here are a handful of some of my favorite images from the day!
