Ashlyn + Tyler Winter Park Wedding: The Lodge at Sunspot

Labor Day weekend marked the end of our 2013 wedding season with Ashlyn + Tyler’s wedding in Winter Park. Our season ended much like  it began- with a destination wedding. Yes the wedding was right here in Colorado, but for the couple and their guests it was a little ways to get here. Ashlyn + Tyler are Texas natives and met while on a ski/snowboard trip here so when it came to planning their big day, the Colorado mountains were the perfect choice. Of course in typical Colorado fashion- particularly Colorado MOUNTAIN fashion- the weather decided to have a bit of an identity crisis the day of the wedding. It rained on and off most of the day but I’m so glad they agreed to keep the ceremony outdoors using the umbrellas for their guests. Fortunately the rain did stop shortly after they said “I do” and we were able to get some beautiful pictures outside with the mountain backdrop. Even though they were freezing they were such great sports and pushed through chattering teeth and all 🙂 They opted to do a first look before the ceremony and the emotion in that moment could be felt all the way to the other side of the camera. We can’t thank Cydney from Stiletto Events enough for recommending them our way and like usual she outdid herself with all the gorgeous details and planning that went into their wedding. Congrats Ashlyn + Tyler and thank you for allowing us to be a part of your special day!!

Sarah + Luke: Breckenridge Wedding Photography

It’s been a crazy year so far! We FINALLY moved into our new house a week ago- 3 moves in 6 months is not fun to say the least especially when 2 of them were right at the start of the wedding season. So glad to now be moved to a permanent location and we can get back into the routine of things again. The weekend before we moved we headed up to Breckenridge to photograph a wedding we’d been excited about for quite some time- Sarah & Luke’s. We met Luke at his brother Matt & Alyssa’s wedding back in 2009 in Jamaica and had such a great time getting to work with both he and Sarah for their engagement session a few months back. The wedding couldn’t have been at a more beautiful location. The ceremony was held at the Breckenridge Outdoor Education Center which has a lake situated against the mountain backdrop. We had perfect cool mountain temperatures (so nice to escape from the record heat wave down in Denver) and unlike the days leading up to the wedding, no rain to contend with. Other than the bright sun (no smog/ozone to filter through up here) you couldn’t have asked for a better day for a wedding. Their ceremony was one of my favorite to date with Luke’s grandfather, a retired pastor, officiating- how cool is that?! We had a great time that day and got some beautiful images we’re excited to share with them. Here’s some of our favorites we captured throughout the day. God Bless!
