Actually, it was a spring wedding reception in Breckenridge. Jessie & Ryan had already married over the winter as they eloped to Iceland. They are the owners of a new bar on Main Street called, “The Mine” and didn’t have a lot of time to be away from the busy ski season and their new business. So, after the elopement, they waited until our slower season and had the reception and party for their family and friends. They also really wanted to include Snappy this time as he was not able to be with them in Iceland. Snappy is a much loved, German Short Haired Pointer who was happy to be a part of the photo shoot at the High Line Railroad Park.
Brent & Marcela… a photographer’s dream. So positively adorable together and so in love!! They arrived from Florida with their family members and closest friends and checked in to a gorgeous rental home on Boreas Pass with a fantastic deck overlooking Breckenridge Ski Resort. When I arrived at Marcela’s room to begin taking photos of her getting ready, I was met by a radiant and absolutely stunning bride-to-be. Brent, as well, had a magnetic smile and effortless charm.
Brent & Marcela, Thank you for welcoming me into your most special day. It was an honor documenting your love.
I absolutely love this silvery grey dress! Additionally, the combination of natural, red hair and the yellow aspen trees was a photographers dream. This autumn wedding day was simply stunning. The Donovan Pavillion provided a spectacular venue with it’s lush landscaping, green lawns and gorgeous views. As usual, Petal & Bean provided some amazing flowers which matched the dress and the season perfectly!
Let’s hear it for the Boys! I am happy to say that I have had the pleasure of photographing several surprise marriage proposals in Breckenridge this winter. It takes a bit of old fashioned romance, some serious organizational skills and a lot of courage to not only pop the big question, but to have it captured with photographs by someone you’ve never even met!
