Colorado Mountain Wedding | Rustic Barn at Evergreen Memorial Park

I
had the pleasure of photographing many of my roller derby friends during the month of September. Today on the blog I have the wedding of Meagan and Daniel who have to be one of the cutest, most in love couples I've ever photographed! I knew Meagan before she met Daniel and you can just see what a positive and happy force he is in her life. It's a sad little fact that there have been a decent amount of women in the league whose partners are not supportive of their roller derby hobby. Meagan is lucky in that Daniel not only supports her, but he is her biggest fan. And the feeling is mutual. I have seen her posting about getting into new hobbies (like going hunting or car racing) that Daniel enjoys as well. I really enjoyed photographing the two of them on their wedding day. They got married at the Barn at Evergreen Memorial Park up in the mountains of Colorado. It's a very unique and rustic place for a wedding with gorgeous stained glass windows and string lights hanging throughout the barn. The barn is actually an amalgamation of multiple historic old buildings made up of different barns, a church, and even an old resort. It sits right next door to a private animal ranch with buffalo out grazing in the mountain backdrop. The buffalo were kind enough to be grazing next to the lake in front of the mountain backdrop we chose for family portraits and got to be included in some of the pictures. I love how they add a rustic and wild feel of the Pioneering old west to this place. These two had quite a lot of guests at their wedding and it was a super fun and cozy party. They danced on the old wood floors under the pretty string lights and they looked like they were having the time of their life. Check out their story in the pictures below!

Colorado Private Home Wedding | Mountain Vista Lodge in Silverthorne

F
or smaller more intimate weddings nothing beats renting a gigantic pretty mountain lodge with awesome views. That's exactly what Lindsay & Coty did in early September for their wedding day here in Colorado. They live in Kansas, but Lindsay's been visiting Colorado with her family since she was little and it's like a second home for her here in the mountains. So it makes sense that she and Coty opted for a small destination wedding with just their closest family and friends in Silverthorne, CO. They rented a place called Mountain Vista Lodge located off of Highway 9 and Ute Pass Road where the mountain views are incredible. There's a rustic wood triangle arch made out of huge logs at the ceremony site with long benches for guest seating. Lindsay's aunt helped the couple decorate it with huge pretty silk flowers. Lindsay & Coty were originally going to do their ceremony at Sapphire Point so we headed over to Lake Dillon to get some photos mid-day in that area before the early afternoon ceremony took place. It was such a laid back perfect day and one of my favorite parts was when Coty wheeled his new bride around in a wheelbarrow. Apparently that is a family tradition for his side of the family and some relatives back home were kind enough to drive a big wheelbarrow all the way out to Colorado so that he could partake in this family tradition. As the sun began to set Lindsay and Coty were kind enough to indulge me in a few more photos of the two of them together. I am so glad they did since the mountain views in this area were so dramatic and rugged. I love that the full moon came out early to be a part of a few of their portraits too. It was truly the perfect setting to celebrate with friends and family. When I left they were dancing the night away under the stars.

Colorado Wedding Photography | Mountain Wedding at BlueSky Breckenridge

I
have been so excited to share the photos from Alex and Ryan's beautiful Colorado wedding at BlueSky Breckenridge which took place earlier this September. Alex is a wedding photographer herself out in Iowa so she knew what to expect and had her day planned out extremely well which translated into lots of good photography time to create portraits with their best friends and family. We started off the day at BlueSky Breckenridge hotel in the Tyra Snowflake neighborhood. After capturing some of the preparations (including a sweet photo of Alex's besties seeing her in her gown for the first time) we did some first look pictures both with Dad and with Ryan. I loved seeing the emotion on Ryan's face as he saw his stunning bride for the first time. Alex made sure to schedule some photo time with just her and Ryan after this so we made our way over to Sapphire Point and the docks at Lake Dillon for some gorgeous photos with the mountains in the backdrop. We made our way back over to BlueSky to finish up the formal portraits with the family and the wedding party and finished up all of it before the ceremony began. That meant that Alex and Ryan got to enjoy their cocktail hour with all of their guests which I think is particularly nice when it is a destination wedding and everyone has traveled so far to be there to celebrate with the bride and groom. It turned out to be a wonderful party with awesome speeches and toasts and a pretty epic dance party too. A highlight of the evening was when Alex performed Salt N Pepa's song, "Shoop" to the crowd's delight. And the cherry on top for this wedding celebration was the fact that BlueSky Breckenridge allowed for a sparkler exit to cap off the evening. Here in Colorado that's pretty rare and always makes for a pretty photo to end the evening. Below I've shared some highlights from their spectacular Colorado wedding day!

Colorado Wedding Photographer | Mountain Stream Wedding at Cathedral Rock

T
oday is part two of Juliana and Mike's awesome summer weekend wedding celebration in the beautiful Buffalo Creek mountain area which is just south of Conifer. Friday night found these two shuffling around the wood dance floor with their family and friends and Saturday was the day that everyone gathered around them on the island by the river to watch them say their vows. Prior to the ceremony, I had the pleasure of spending some time at Mike's cabin where he was prepping for the day with his 5 kids and other close relatives. Juliana was up at her parents home near the dance hall and reception tent. The ceremony took place down by the river with Cathedral Spires rock formation looming overhead in the background. The sky turned an incredible dark stormy shade of blue right before the wedding and the wind picked up. Along with the rushing of the South West Platte River it all provided a lovely and dramatic setting to get married. After the ceremony, everyone walked through the field to get back over to the wedding reception tent and cabins where the majority of the party would take place. Juliana and Mike are so loved by their family and friends that when it was open mike time there were no shortage of speakers ready to come up and sing their praises. After the delicious dinner created by their family friend, Shannon Hughes the party moved into the dance hall where a live band was set up and ready to rock out for the evening. As an added bonus, Juliana's uncle who is a well known blues singer from Chicago jumped in with the band and serenaded the crowd for a few songs. It was an incredible day full of love all around!
