Sapphire Point Elopement: Amanda & Randall

Weather in the middle of October can bring anything in the Colorado Rockies.  When Amanda told me she was excited for the beauty of the fall color (they were coming from Texas), I had to break the news that the fall color would be long gone and the mountains would likely be covered in fresh snow.  Oh, and also that it would be cold, quite cold for Texans.  Yet, October 18th rolled around and we were gifted with one of those rare sunny, sixty degree October days.  In other words, it could not have been more perfect.  Amanda & Randall exchanged vows at Sapphire Point overlooking Lake Dillon and the Ten Mile range, reminding me, yet again, that elopements are the bees knees.  I can’t think of a better way to spend a Wednesday afternoon.  Here are just a few of my favorite photos from our hour together that gorgeous afternoon!

Caroline & Nick’s Timber Ridge Wedding

They met 10 years ago in high school in the Midwest.  Their journey eventually led them to building a life in Colorado and consequently exchanging vows on the top of a mountain deep in the Colorado wilderness.  These mountains have a wonderful way of turning up the volume on our love stories.  Of causing us to look back and think “would you ever have imagined 10 years ago we’d be standing on a mountaintop getting married?”  I believe this is what Caroline & Nick said to each other at some point as they reflected on the decade that led them to this mountain.  It all led to the most perfect day, in the most magical location surrounded by all their favorite people.  Congratulations to Caroline & Nick!

Here’s a peek at their Keystone wedding at Timber Ridge this past July…

Ten Mile Station Wedding: Shannon & Steve

So many of our couples have met on the internet via sites like Match.com.  It’s pretty awesome that thru technology it’s entirely possible to find “the one” without necessarily having to go to the bar and hoping for the best.  However, every now and then we hear about a good old-fashioned story of two universes colliding and it warms my heart to know that fate still has it’s ways.

Enter Shannon & Steve.  They are truly a match made in heaven and fate wouldn’t have it any other way.  When getting to know them, Shannon told me that on her first day in Denver she nearly ran over Steve when pulling in to a parking lot and the rest was history.

I couldn’t be more thrilled that somewhere along their path they found Mark & I and we got to be the ones to document their love story.  On a gorgeous day in July, they wed at Ten Mile Station in Breckenridge, our home away from home.  Here’s a peek at a few of our favorite moments…

Vendors We Love: Cinepro Studios Wedding Cinematography

In September, when we pulled up to Jen & Josh’s Vail wedding and saw Dusty from Cinepro Studios get out of the car in front of us, I was ecstatic.  You see, not all videographers are created equal.  Just like photographers, they all have a different style, a different approach to their work.  Since video and photo are such closely related mediums, it’s so vital that we’re all able to work together seamlessly.  Mark & I are all about letting the beautiful moments of a wedding unfold organically, but if a videographer is standing next to us orchestrating and staging every moment, it becomes challenging to capture genuine moments.

So when couples hire like-minded videographers that are as easy-going as they are talented, I want to be sure everyone knows about them!  In my inbox this morning was an e-mail from Dusty with a link to Jen & Josh’s highlight reel.  We NEVER get to see these because we never think to ask.  Not only was Dusty thoughtful enough to send it over but it was the perfect excuse for me to tell you guys about him.

If you’re looking for the perfect videographer for your wedding, I can’t recommend Dusty enough.  Check out this gorgeous video from Jen & Josh’s wedding and then give him a shout!

Vendors We Love: Wedding Painter Julia Dordoni

Colorado has some of the most picturesque wedding locations you could ever dream of.  From mountain tops to aspen groves, the settings of our favorite wedding venues are so dreamy, they feel as though you’ve just stepped in to a postcard.  So when we arrived at Leslie & Dan’s wedding at Flying Diamond Ranch in Steamboat and saw that they’d commissioned an artist to create a painting of the setting, I thought it was absolutely brilliant.  Not to mention, just the sight of a painter at work added to the ambiance of the fairytale setting as guests arrived.

We watched Julia work throughout the day and her finished piece was stunning.  So much so that I’m hoping to get to see her at work again in the future as I’d love to see some of our other favorite wedding venues depicted in her art!

Breckenridge Nordic Center Wedding: Courtney & Anthony

Mid-July took us to a new wedding venue in Breckenridge that we immediately fell in love with.  The Breckenridge Nordic Center is located at the base of Peak 8 and is a little slice of heaven in the heart of Breck.  We spent the first part of the day hitting up some gorgeous spots around town for photos with Courtney & Anthony before starting the celebration at the Nordic Center.  A huge thanks to the Nordic Center for being such an awesome host and to Courtney & Anthony for choosing us to document their incredible day!

Back-to-back Breckenridge Wedding Weekend

Last Wednesday, as many of you know, a wildfire broke out a few short miles from the town of Breckenridge.  450 homes were evacuated and the entire town was under a pre-evacuation notice.  As I drove to the grocery store on Thursday and lay eyes on the plume of smoke that loomed in the background of Frisco, my heart sank.  I was worried for the town and as for the two weddings we had coming up on Saturday and Sunday in Breckenridge, I wasn’t feeling good about the possibility of those venues not being accessible.  Well, thanks to the men and women that are willing to literally throw themselves in to the line of fire as well as a little help from Mother Nature, things took a major turn for the better come Saturday.  As we documented the celebration of two fabulous couples this weekend, I basked in the fact that the sky was blue and clear of smoke and the threat of destruction had passed.  As I begin editing away at these two days that I’ll remember fondly, I couldn’t help but share a little preview : )

A big congratulations to Courtney & Anthony and Shannon & Steve!

Keystone, Colorado Wedding: Sarah & Tyler

I love that thru this job we get to meet so many people from so many different places.  People are drawn to the Rocky Mountains from all over the country.  We’ve even had several couples come from various corners of the world.  With Tyler from Oklahoma and Sarah from Tennessee, I knew one thing would be true of their wedding…them and their families would be a joy to be around. And they were just that, so kind, so welcoming and so appreciative.  We could not have been more delighted to be the ones to document the first day of what I know will be a beautiful marriage.

Sarah & Tyler exchanged vows on Anticipation ski run at Keystone Ski Resort with their reception following at Timber Ridge lodge on North Peak.  Here is a look at their Colorado wedding!

Colorado Fall Engagement Photos: Stephanie & Cameron

In anticipation of Stephanie & Cameron’s wedding day which is just three weeks away (YAY!!!) I thought I’d share their gorgeous engagement photos from last fall.  Not only are Stephanie & Cameron crazy photogenic but their love for each other is the kind that makes your soul smile when you’re around them.  That and their goldendoodle Rudy might be THE cutest dog I’ve ever met.  Just looking at these makes me wish their wedding would hurry up and get here already.  I have no doubt it’s going to be a great day.  Until then, take a peek at Stephanie & Cameron’s fall engagement photos at some of our favorite spots around Summit County…

Beaver Creek Wedding @ Beano’s Cabin: Lesley & Jake

Whenever I blog about a wedding I attempt to recall specifics.  I figure, if you’re a bride planning your mountain wedding, you would love to know what exactly made a wedding perfect.  Yet, the specifics never come back to me, instead I can only recall a feeling, an emotion.  I guess that’s because it’s not our job to remember what was said in the vows or what advice was given during the toasts. Our job is to capture a feeling, a fleeting moment in time, that can be evoked and relived thru the visuals we’ve captured.

So as I put together these photos from Lesley & Jake’s Beano’s Cabin wedding, I remembered this…these two adore each other…and their family adores them.  Theirs was a day that from the moment we walked in the door we could feel the joy that filled the room.  And Beano’s Cabin could not have been a more perfect place for Lesley & Jake to celebrate the beginning of their marriage.  Here’s a look at Lesley & Jake’s joy captured…

What our clients are saying…

Thank you!  Thank you!  Thank you!  We knew when we met you that you were the ones for the job but you have exceeded our expectations by a long shot.  Our photos are amazing and you were both such a pleasure to work with.  Both Todd & I keep saying “Where were they?”.  The candid shots are incredible and the details you thought to capture absolutely rock!  I don’t know what else to say but awesome job.  We enjoyed you both so much!  We hope to see you soon again next time we are in Breck!

Jen

Thank you so much for these amazing photographs and for making the whole photography process so easy!   How you manage to take such beautiful photos in the speed that you do baffles me!  Taking the bridal party and family photos did not keep us away from the party at all.  We have never been happier and the pictures show it.  I feel like you really captured who we are as a couple and as individuals.  It was so easy to be ourselves around you.  Thank you for being a part of it and providing the photographs that allow us to relive it for the rest of our lives!

Erin

Thank you thank you thank you!!! We are absolutely thrilled with the photos. They are exactly what I’d always hoped for and perfectly captured all the events, people and emotions of our day.  Just looking at some of the ceremony ones makes my eyes well up with tears all over again every time I look at them, which is often.  The groomsmen photos are really some of the best pictures of a group of guys I’ve ever seen. Plus we had such a blast hanging out with you and Mark all afternoon! I would recommend you both to all my friends. Thank you for capturing our special day so perfectly.
