“Love like rain, can nourish from above, drenching couples with a soaking joy.” ~ Paulo Coelho
They say that rain on your wedding day is good luck.. and so mother nature decided to grace Laura & Bryan with a downpour of luck right during their wedding ceremony on the Vail Wedding Deck. Laura & Bryan exchanged vows atop the mountain underneath stormy skies in a heartfelt and emotional ceremony officiated by Laura’s father. It was beautiful. Personal. And perfect. My history with this family dates back several years.. back to 2008 when I was the photographer for Jarrett & Sloan’s wedding at the Denver Country Club. Bryan and Jarrett are brothers, so I was beyond thrilled when Laura contacted me with news of their engagement. I am always profoundly grateful to work with such amazing people, and it was especially sweet to have the honor of working with their family again and being a part of capturing this magnificent day. A few favorites..
the day was flawlessly coordinated by one of Sapphire Celebrations.. and here are some of the beautiful details during the bridal prep at The Arrabelle (including the drop-dead gorgeous Pronovias wedding gown <swoon>)

Their reception continued into the wee hours of the evening at The Arrabelle – the ballroom so romantic and elegant, sparkling with candlelight.

Congratulations, Laura & Bryan – it has been such a pleasure being your photographer. My warmest wishes to you both!
