Pamela & Brad ~ Keystone Ski Tip Lodge Wedding

keystone colorado ski tip lodge wedding bride and groomI’ve been so excited to share Pamela & Brad’s incredible Ski Tip Lodge wedding in Keystone. I just adore this couple – and their sweetest pup Oscar who served as best man and ring bearer. The event was simple and beautiful  – an intimate gathering of closest friends and family on a picturesque autumnal day. Pamela & Brad share a love for the Colorado mountains and for skiing, which they incorporated into the theme of their day with vintage skis as their guest book, a mountain scene etched on their wedding cake, and even a bride and groom skiing as the cake topper. These two are sweet and vibrant, and such a joy. A few favorites…

Jenny & Brett ~ Devil’s Thumb Ranch Wedding

devils thumb ranch wedding ceremony lonesome barn rainThey say that rain on your wedding day is considered good luck, and for Jenny & Brett it proved to be a sweet and romantic blessing from Mother Nature. Surrounded by their closest family, Jenny & Brett chose the most intimate of settings for their beautiful Colorado mountain wedding. Devil’s Thumb Ranch is one of those places that takes my breath away every single time I go there. It’s is spectacular. And the rain held off.. well, for the most part… allowing the majority of the ceremony to be held outside, with the breathtaking backdrop of the Colorado mountains. It was the perfect: intimate and personal, and simply lovely. As for me, it was such an honor to be a part of it. A few favorites..
