Nicola and Bud's elegant wedding took place at the Vail Interfaith Chapel and Sebastian Hotel. These two have been together for 11 years. They finally made it official on Sept. 3 with guests flying in from all over the world - including Scotland and Iceland. Nicola and Bud are super laid back, making Vail the perfect destination for their fabulous wedding.
When I say I like to "tell the story" of your wedding day this is exactly what I am talking about. Kelly & Phil have a great story from how they met to how they fell in love with the mountains of Colorado and Telluride. There were two very special people who were not at this wedding in person but with all the love and remembrance there's no doubt they were there in spirit.
The weather may not have cooperated but this wedding was something special and could not have been more perfect. They had to forgo an outside ceremony at San Sophia Overlook to have their ceremony and reception at Gorrono Ranch. Gorrono Ranch is a beautiful, rustic, barn-style ranch right on Telluride Mountain. Everything ran smoothly as Kelly and Phil exchanged vows mountainside with close family and friends.
When the wedding vows start with "I promise to love you in spite of these things..." you know there is nothing "normal" about this wedding. Jenna & Jake's Lower Golden Ledge wedding was unique and tailored to this adventurous couple. The expansive 360 views of the San Juan mountains offered a perfect back drop. I love filming weddings anywhere in Telluride but this venue was definitely one to beat.
Ambria & Devin's beautiful Telluride elopement proves that all you really need to get married is a picnic basket and a mountain top. They exchanged vows and rings alone at San Sophia Overlook. You cannot beat the views at San Sophia Overlook with mountains to one side and the town of Telluride to the other.
Telluride photographer, Rachel Gomez, and I had the best time capturing this intimate elopement. It was the most perfect day!
I had such a great time back in my home state of Michigan filming Emily + Chris' wedding at Country Club of Boyne. These two were so happy and laughed through their entire wedding day. They are a wonderful couple who I just know will have a fun-filled life together. Oh, and I got to film along side my favorite Michigan photographer and close friend Stephanie Baker. It sure was a great day!
Another sweet couple who have been together since high school. Jason and Jordan have known each other for 12 years! I love how their ceremony gave a recap of their relationship. This one is so cool! They were married on top of Vail Mountain with close friends and family. Everyone celebrated the couple with a laid back reception at Donovan Pavilion in Vail.
Kate and Justin have been together since high school! I just love couples who have been together for so long (especially high school sweethearts!) They truly are a wonderful couple. It's such a beautiful thing to see a groom THIS in love with his bride. Justin was literally bouncing for joy as Kate walked down the aisle and as they recited their vows.
Kate & Justin exchanged vows at the beautiful Devil's Thumb Ranch in Tabernash, CO. This is one of my favorite wedding venues in Colorado with 360 degree mountain views and a true Colorado ranch feel.
Dana and Gus Spaulding are two of the sweetest people I've had the pleasure of filming and their families were equally as wonderful (as you can tell by the speeches and Dad's first look). I also had the joy of working with the amazingly talented and hilarious Steve Stanton Photography. This June 4th wedding was put together by one of my favorite wedding planners in the valley, Kelly Karli Weddings and Events. Kelly and her team are one of a kind and they clearly pulled out all the stops for this one. Enjoy!
