In the middle of September, when the leaves begin to change, there is no place I’d rather be than in the middle of a magnificent aspen grove.  If you’re anything like me, Saddle Ridge is the place to be for a fall wedding in the mountains.  A dense, mature aspen grove hugs Saddle Ridge making for a setting unlike anywhere else in the state.  Laura & Andrew’s wedding had been on our calendar for over two years when their wedding arrived and we could not have been more excited to finally meet them in person.  These two were elated that their day was finally here and they were gifted a gorgeous Colorado day in this one-of-a-kind setting.  Take a peek at Laura & Andrew’s destination wedding in Beaver Creek, Colorado…

This shot required a little off-roading on Laura & Andrew’s part.  They were totally down and I’d say it was totally worth it:

Laura changed in to a second but equally stunning dress for her and Andrew’s choreographed first dance.  They totally killed it!

The biggest surprise came when Laura & her father broke out in to a choreographed dance.  The guests were blown away and Laura’s dad nailed it!  Laura is one hell of a dancer and it was pretty cool to watch and capture these once-in-a-lifetime moments:
