Vail Wedding Photography *Amy + Mike*

Meet Amy + Mike (most people call him Tilly).

I think you will see for yourself, their wedding day was spectacular. The forecast called for 90% chance of rain all day. The ceremony was planned to be outside as well as the cocktail hour. But…the clouds broke open and the sun came out almost all day! Plan ‘A’ was a success!

Our favorite moment was definitely the dance floor. We honestly had a hard time moving around the reception because the dance floor was completely packed the ENTIRE night. The band never took a break and the dancing never stopped. Also the toasts were hilarious.

Amy & Tilly, it was SO fun to meet you both and get to celebrate your marriage. You two are so easy and fun to be around. After meeting your friends and families and hearing stories, we have no doubt you two are as wonderful as you seem. Thank you so much for inviting us into this wonderful day.

Stove Prairie Ranch Wedding *Kelsey + Drew*

I can honestly say after 12 years of wedding photography it is so clear to me what makes an epic wedding…it is always the people. This is probably true about life, but I am certain it is true to weddings.

Kelsey + Drew’s wedding day started with thunderstorm warnings and plenty of rain and hail. Guests had to be moved out of a tent because the lightning was too close. Cocktail hour ended up in the ceremony site near horse stalls. AND the groom broke his leg 4 weeks before the wedding. But I can genuinely say this wedding was a highlight. The couple and their families were so laid back and just enjoyed the ride.

Kelsey + Drew, we are pretty stoked we are friends now and can’t wait until you move back to Colorado 😉 You guys are both absolutely wonderful to be around. Thank you so much for your endless kindness and sharing your wedding day with us!

Snowy Rocky Mountain Wedding *Danyelle + Reid*

Danyelle + Reid are a brilliant and kind couple who are so easy to spend time with. We loved watching the way these two balance each other so well and bring out the best in one another!

The couple had an intimate wedding at the rustic Wild Basin Lodge. Although it was late April, in true Colorado fashion we woke up to a snow storm. The ceremony was in front of the river and the guests stayed warm with blankets and fire pits.

Danyelle & Reid, thank you for braving the cold and hiking by the river. We hope your toes have thawed and we hope the honeymoon was epic! Thanks so much for sharing your most important day with us!

Estes Park Mountain Wedding *Kelsey + Luke*

Meet Kelsey & Luke. Some of the most fun and laid back people you might meet. The stories that were shared keep us confident they are fun and wild, yet their kindness and relaxed vibe proves they are so present and content.

The wedding day was of course perfect (always is at Della Terra). I believe Kelsey would say the only mistake is that Luke fed himself cake before feeding it to her…but the laughs were so worth it.

Kelsey and Luke, thanks for kicking off wedding season with an outrageously fun wedding. You two are one of the most down to earth couples, and your wedding day was so fun because of it! Thanks for being so present and just enjoying every moment. Thanks for the glass of wine and time on the dance floor. We LOVED being apart of your big day!

XO

Adventure Elopement *Dream Lake RMNP*

We met at 6:00am at the trail head in Rocky Mountain National Park. Although Dan & Jeanne are from Florida, they had hiked this trail to Dream Lake before and thought it would be the perfect place to Elope at Sunrise.

You guys, I can’t contain my giddy feeling about this shoot…it was such a dream (pun not intended). We spent 3 hours hiking and exploring in 12 degree weather, and we all loved it!

Dan & Jeanne, thank you SO much for trusting a stranger to meet you at a dark trail head and hike into the wilderness with you…kinda hilarious when you think about it! I am honored I got to meet you both and know your story.

St. Vrain Wedding – Dana & Marius

Meet Dana & Marius. They are awesome and we are certain you would agree.

This wedding was such a perfect display of Dana & Marius. The ceremony was so unique and intimate, yet the reception was packed full with dancing and was never dull. Even NSYNC’s ‘Merry Christmas’ kept the dance floor alive and thriving, regardless of the fact it was February. They literally spent most of their cake cutting rapping and dancing to the song instead of eating cake. These are our type of people 🙂

Every detail was well thought out and perfectly unique! From the circular ceremony, to the blue velvet napkins, gold flatware, and cake topper, it was dreamy.

Also meet The St. Vrain. This is an AMAZING new wedding venue in Longmont, Colorado! The owners are fabulous people and this industrial venue is a dream. Check them out here!

Krista + Kevin *Estes Park Winter Wedding*

If you are considering a winter wedding in Colorado….do it. Hopefully this wedding is proof that it is a great idea.

Krista and Kevin are both wildly kind, so fun, and dentists 🙂 They had such a fun crew of friends and family celebrating them, and honestly a lot of Elk. The couple nailed all of the details with the winter green flowers, classic black suits and the gold reception details.

Although every detail was absolutely stunning and flawless, the wedding was amazing because of the great people.

Thank you to you both, Krista and Kevin for inviting us into your story and taking such good care of us. Thank you a million for the gluten free cake and the opportunity to dance with you guys and your guests. Your wedding was perfect.

Jaime + Michael *Vail Colorado Wedding*

I’m so encouraged.

There are absolutely wonderful people in this world. There are families that are together and love each other deeply. There are selfless and brave leaders all around us. After 11 years of shooting weddings we just keep meeting incredible people.

Every single person at Jaime and Michael’s wedding was wildly kind and fun. People deeply respected who Jaime and Michale are as individuals and a couple. Tears were shed during the ceremony and the dance floor shook the entire reception.

Jaime & Michael, thank you so much for making us feel like invited guests. Thank you for jumping up to meet us at your rehearsal dinner. Thanks for asking about our daughter. Thanks for being spontaneous and braving the freezing temps for photos and an adventure. We truly hope to see you again and maybe have you guys kick out butts on the ski hill 🙂

Kristin + Tyler *Black Canyon Inn*

Meet Kristin and Tyler. They are awesome.

A wedding day reveals a lot about a couple and a family. Everyone is gathered and emotions are high. It is always so fun to see the crowd of people who have been impacted by the lives of the bride and groom. Kristin and Tyler had quite the crowd. The impact they have left on peoples lives gathered an impressive and wildly fun group of family and friends. There wasn’t a moment the dance floor was empty and there wasn’t a moment a guest sat alone.

Kristin and Tyler, you two are radiantly in love! You made our jobs easy. Thank you again for having us on your wedding day, we smile just thinking about it. Can’t wait to see you guys again soon and maybe you can teach us how to use a smoker … If we don’t have a smoker we will settle for Nachos 😉

XOXO

Brittany + Hagen *Della Terra Wedding*

I think a big reason we love shooting weddings in Colorado is because the Bride’s are always up for anything. The scenery is incredible and the weather is typically good, but seriously the couples are adventurous and so spontaneous.

17 degrees, windy, slushy sidewalks, cloudy and high heels. This list of obstacles never even fazed Brittany & Hagen!

This was a wedding we could have stayed all night to dance! The family and bridal party were a blast!

Brittany & Hagen, we loved getting to know you guys!! Your wedding was perfect. We know you know this, but your family and friends are wonderful!! hope to see you guys again!
