Meredith & John ~ Beaver Creek Wedding Deck

beaver creek mountain wedding colorado wedding deck bride and groom with dogs

A big sweeping Colorado sky, mountain fields dotted with wildflowers, a majestic panorama of peaks in the distance, and true love… life just doesn’t get much better than this.

I’ve been so excited to post part deux from Meredith & John’s Beaver Creek mountain wedding  (click here for part one: their rehearsal dinner picnic). Meredith & John got engaged during a hiking trip through the Swiss Alps, and they chose the breathtaking mountains that they call home as the backdrop for their wedding. Their ceremony atop the Beaver Creek wedding deck was simply lovely, with heartfelt vows and the incorporation of their beloved fur babies as integral members of the wedding party. These two are warm and kind, and it was an absolute joy to be their photographer.  A few favorites..

beaver creek wedding rehearsal picnic dinner colorado bride and groomSo excited to share part one of Meredith & John’s incredible Colorado mountain wedding weekend. I love shooting rehearsal dinners; it is a wonderful opportunity to document a bigger story, capturing the festivities and excitement leading up to the big day. Meredith & John’s Beaver Creek rehearsal picnic incorporated lawn games, croquet, & giant Jenga. It was a perfect Colorado evening full of family and friends, laughter and mingling, and topped off with toasts by the best man and maid of honor. A few favorites..
