Ashley and Sean planned a beautiful destination wedding at the Della Terra in Estes Park for a small group of their friends and family who traveled to Colorado with them to celebrate! They had a beautiful day with beautiful weather and an amazing backdrop! And I’m officially obsessed with their color palette, the pastels are beyond lovely. The color combos felt so calm and peaceful to me, it really helped set the tone for the whole day! Their ceremony was intimate, emotional and full of personal touches. Andrea had a truly wonderful time with Sean and Ashley! Thanks for letting us be a part of your bug day guys!
Peace. Quiet. Waterfalls. Family. All the ingredients for an amazing Colorado elopement in RMNP! Cassie and Dustin had one of those elopement ceremonies where everything aligned perfectly. A perfect setting (Copeland Falls in Rocky Mountain National Park!). A beautiful evening. Fall leaves beginning to turn. Perfect lighting. Flower crowns and beautifully coordinated colors and details. Yes. Yes. Yes!
Andrea met up with Cassie and Dustin just before sunset at Copeland Falls, which is in the Wild Basin region of Rocky Mountain National park. They picked out the perfect spot with their closest family members along side the North St. Vrain Creek. They had a beautiful ceremony followed by champagne and celebrations as the light faded. What a wonderful evening!
What a beautiful wedding at Ten Mile Station! I just adore the views from this Breckenridge venue, it is the most perfect backdrop for a mountain ceremony. And Jessica’s blush dress? Gorgeous, I love it so much! They were blessed with beautiful weather, amazing views and a fun celebration with all their friends and family. Andrea had a wonderful time photographing Jake and Jessica’s wedding!
I’ve always wanted to photograph an elopement ceremony on top of a 14er (for those of you not from Colorado, a 14er is a mountain over 14,000 ft. high…Colorado has 53 of them!). Yesterday I crossed that goal off of my list with Christina and John’s amazing sunrise elopement on top of Mount Evans! What an incredible morning we had together. It’s hard to even know where to begin describing our experience, it was amazing!
I’ve always said that with Colorado, big risk often leads to big reward. If you’re willing to wake up at 3am, drive in the dark to the top of a giant mountain when the weather is calling for cloudy conditions, rain and wind…well, sometimes you’re lucky enough to get a big reward. I love when my clients are easy going enough to just say “we’re in, let’s hope for the best and see what happens!” John and Christina were definitely up for anything and willing to roll with the punches!
When we arrived at the summit, we were greeted with near hurricane-force winds and the temperature was hovering around 35 degrees. The entire summit was socked in with swirling fog, wind and clouds that just didn’t seem to want to relent. However, with a little patience, optimism and a strategic location choice, we were able to get underneath the clouds and we witnessed one of the best sunrises that I have ever photographed.
The skies were a mixture of pink, purple, orange all whirling together. On top of that, there was a light rainstorm over Denver which was backlit by the rising sun and just added an extra dimension of beauty to our time together. And John and Christina were lucky enough to get married as the beautiful scene unfolded before our eyes.
