Our first wedding of July took us to one of our most favorite wedding venues in all of Colorado…Timber Ridge at Keystone Ski Resort. Guests are treated to not just one but two gondola rides to get to Timber Ridge, a true Colorado experience. We’d been anxiously awaiting this day ever since meeting Kelly & Matt in San Diego for their engagement portrait session earlier this year. Their magnetic personalities and love of life and each other is a photographer’s dream. The day started with the signing of the ketubah, one of my favorite traditions to photograph, and ended with a surprise flash mob performed by the guests for Kelly & Matt.
Kelly’s niece was one of the happiest flower girls ever.
Matt turns the corner and sees Kelly for the first time.
Kelly’s adorable nephew came and found us on the ski slope. He said he wanted to get a photo with his Aunt Kelly, then gave her a hug and walked back to the lodge. What a cutie.
Kelly & Matt’s immediate family and a few dear friends joined them for their Ketubah signing inside Alpenglow Stube.

Kelly & Matt’s wedding was full of surprises starting with this one. Matt had no idea that Kelly had worked with Keystone’s renowned pastry schef, Ned Archibald, to design a groom’s cake themed after his favorite sport’s team.
Their first dance started as any first dance does…
…then they shocked their guests with a perfectly executed choreographed dance routine.
They may have blown their guests away with the routine they’d secretly been practicing for months but they had no idea their guests had been doing the same. In the middle of the reception the bridal party broke out in to a dance routine and were shortly joined by Kelly & Matt’s parents and many of the guests. Needless to say, Kelly & Matt were completely shocked.
