Della Terra Wedding ~ Tiffany & Brian in Estes Park

colorado bride and groom at nightThree blog posts in one week – it must be wedding season! We’ve been pretty busy at the studio these days, and are about to get busier.. so hold onto your proverbial hats because we’ve got all kinds of gorgeousness headed your way, starting with Tiffany & Brian’s Della Terra wedding. Every aspect of this wedding was simply incredible, and it has been an absolute joy to be a part of it all. Tiffany and Brian and their families are so expressive, lots of laughter and lots of tears, the entire night was so emotional and so touching.  A few of my favorites..

I adore this shot of Tiffany – it is so her, capturing the essence of her joyful personality and her infectious laughter – beautiful laughing bride estes park colorado wedding

one of my favorite moments of the night was when Tiffany’s dad stood up to give an emotional heartfelt toast – as he (and the rest of the room along with him) choked back tears, Tiffany’s sister (and soon thereafter joined by the rest of the family) came up to stand by and support him.. colorado wedding estes park father of the bride toast

more details! I just love how Tiffany and Brian incorporated their love of wine into a theme that was carried throughout the wedding -  uber-talented Maura from The Paper Guppy created custom stationary and graphics, which they used those on their wine bottle labels (wine as favors). They also fashioned their escort cards with corks, and they even named their tables after different wines – so unique and it all came together perfectlycolorado mountain wedding details wine bottle table settings and favorsbride and groom estes park colorado della terra weddinglove ♥della terra estes park weddingCongratulations, Tiff and Brian – my warmest wishes to you both!
