Tracy & Chris tied the knot at A-basin’s Black Mountain Lodge on a crisp, cool, early Autumn day at the end of August.  Located somewhere above 11,000 feet in elevation, Black Mountain Lodge feels truly “in the mountains” with jagged peaks rising up in every direction.  We started the day in River Run village in Keystone with Chris & Tracy’s First Look then made our way up the road to Arapahoe Basin where every guest was treated to a scenic lift ride before arriving at the Lodge.  There’s no doubt that Black Mountain Lodge offers the full Colorado experience.  Here is a little peek at Chris & Tracy’s A-basin wedding…

We started the day with their First Look and formal photographs in River Run Village in Keystone.  The greenery and aspens offered a nice contrast to the mountainous landscape at A-basin.

Father Marty performs an incredible ceremony and if you’re wondering where he is, he always stands off to the side leaving the couple to be the sole focus of the ceremony.

Tracy warned us when we first met that Chris can be awkward when being photographed.  I’d say we succeeded in making him look and feel comfortable!  It’s what we do!

One of the best parts of a wedding is how it brings people together that otherwise don’t always get the chance to be together.  Below is Tracy’s mother and her six sisters.  These are always important elements of a wedding to capture and I love knowing that these are special family photos that will be treasured forever.

At the end of the day, after hours of grey, overcast weather, this happened.
