Wordless Wednesday: January 13, 2016
Jared and Raquel decided the best way to end 2015 and celebrate 2016 was by eloping in beautiful Estes Park Colorado! I met up with them for their New Year’s Eve elopement at their beautiful condo at the Boulder Brook on Fall River in Estes Park. Their condo’s back patio lead right out onto Fall River, which was covered in a white blanket of snow and made the perfect peaceful backdrop for their elopement ceremony. They stood riverside and exchanged their rings and vows under a sky of softly falling snow flakes. It was so peaceful and lovely!
After their ceremony we headed into Rocky Mountain National Park and did a few photos in the snow before getting frostbite in the 0 degree weather haha! While we were RMNP, the snow began to fall through patches of sunshine and we were treated to some amazing golden glittery snow. It was magic! Congrats Jared and Raquel!
A few favorites….

Does it get any better than an intimate winter wedding at the Ritz-Carlton Bachelor Gulch in Beaver Creek? Talk about a gorgeous winter wedding destination location in the heart of the Rocky Mountains of Colorado! The Ritz-Carlton Bachelor Gulch is one of Beaver Creek’s premiere destination wedding venues. You can do it all here: your guests can stay, ski, relax by the fire, enjoy the spa and attend your wedding without ever having to leave the property. No stress, just fun and beautiful mountain views all around. Liz and Andy knew that the Ritz was the best place for their intimate December wedding. With guests coming from all over, it was the perfect place to set up a wedding base camp!
We lucked out with a beautiful, warm (well, for Colorado in December it was warm!) day. It was such an honor for Andrea and I to be able to document their beautiful ceremony, held outside (yay for brides who aren’t afraid to do this in the winter!) with the ski slopes in the background. We were especially excited that they had an “unplugged” ceremony (meaning no iPhones, cameras or video recording allowed!) which allowed Andrea and I to capture all the moments without having to worry about Uncle Bob standing up in front of us with his camera out. Yay!
Liz and Andy’s wedding day was full of endless views, sparkling white snow, hot chocolate, champagne, fur blankets, snow boots, friends, family, puppy kisses and more laughter than I think I’ve ever experienced at a wedding! I love that they chose to keep the guest list down and do things really well, versus inviting everyone they knew and being spread too thin. Everything about their day was perfection and we are grateful to have been a part of it!
Liz and Andy, thank you both so much for the privilege of documenting your wedding day! You guys have been such a joy to work with, Andrea and I had so much fun with you! I wish you guys a lifetime of happiness and blessings as you begin your life together!
