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!
