I’ll be completely honest, in the weeks leading up to Molly & Ryan’s wedding, I was nervous.  I’m never nervous to shoot a wedding but Molly & Ryan were trying to fit a lot in to one day and I wasn’t quite sure we’d be able to pull it all off.  The first two hours of our timeline read something like this:

11:00 Photograph getting ready
12:15 Mark travel with Ryan and groomsmen from The Westin to the lift at Beaver Creek, ride the lift to the top of the mountain
12:30 Michele travel with Molly and bridesmaids from the Westin to the lift at Beaver Creek, ride the lift to the top of the mountain
12:45 First Look and photos of Molly & Ryan on top of the mountain at Beaver Creek
1:00 Photos of the wedding party on top of the mountain
1:15 Take the lift back down the mountain
1:30 Transport from Beaver Creek to Vail Chapel for the ceremony

Thanks to an incredibly organized and talented group of vendors not to mention a highly cooperative wedding party of 20 people willing to go anywhere a cooler full of beer goes (they’re not afraid to admit this), we got the job done and beautifully I might add.

Molly & Ryan’s First Look on top of the mountain in Beaver Creek was drop-dead gorgeous, their ceremony at Vail Chapel emotional and sweet and the party that followed that night at The Westin in Avon, well I’m not sure there are words.  Let’s just say I could literally feel the crowd fidgeting during toasts because they were so ready to get the party started.  Luckily Funkiphino was on deck and they waste no time getting down.  With over 200 guests this was quite literally the most love I have ever felt for two people in one room.  I’m thrilled we could play a part in seeing that Molly & Ryan made the most of every moment of this amazing day.  Here’s a peek at the many photos we captured that day…
