Alice & Jeff ~ Vail Wedding

vail wedding deck ceremony coloradoI have been looking forward to Alice & Jeff’s wedding for what seems like forever. These two wowed me back in winter, when we took to the ice on Evergreen Lake for their ice skating engagement session. But even before that, way back to our very first conversation, I knew that I wanted to work with them. Their ceremony on the Vail wedding deck was absolutely breathtaking. Surrounded by the mountains that they love, they exchanged wedding vows in an emotional ceremony beautifully officiated by Alice’s aunt. The rain clouds taunted us, but managed to hold off long enough to complete the ceremony and get the entire congregation of guests on the deck for a big group photo before the deluge of drops began to fall. Perfect timing. Perfect. Everyone returned by gondola to the reception at the Larkspur Restaurant, with its dreamy decor and draping by Pink Monkey Solutions. Joann and Mindy with Mountains and Meadows coordinated the entire event to perfection, managing every last detail with calm and ease – and I am still in awe of her weather predicting skillz :)   A few faves..

Beaver Creek Wedding ~ Liz & Craig

aspen trees and wildflowers allies cabin wedding beaver creek coloradoAtop a spectacular Colorado mountain peak, surrounded by their immediate families, Liz & Craig exchanged their wedding vows. It was a day that began with thunder and lightning and ominous clouds, but transformed into a beautiful sparkling summer’s day with the skies clearing just in time for the couple to ascend to the top of Beaver Creek’s Centennial lift. The ceremony, performed by the father of the groom, was intimate and emotional and heartfelt – not a dry eye in the house (mine included!) – and was followed by a lovely reception at Allie’s Cabin. It was such a joy and an honor to be a part of this day. A few favorites..
