Kate + Bob: Wedding at Vail Interfaith Chapel + Sonnenalp Resort

Colorado summers are typically hot & sunny with afternoon thunderstorms so it’s pretty rare when the forecast calls for all day rain and dreary weather in the summer. Rain is usually a nice relief from the heat but when you plan a wedding it’s not something you hope for. When we left that Saturday morning on our way to Vail (in the pouring rain) for Kate & Bob’s wedding we had a plan to make sure we got some great pictures despite the bad weather. We brought some lighting equipment and planned to take pictures inside. However, when we made it up to Vail that morning the weather was anything but what they predicted. We had beautiful skies and although the clouds were coming in and out it held for a majority of the day until after we were almost through with pictures of Kate & Bob. It was perfect that they had a morning wedding- the rain held just in time for us to finish pictures before the start of the reception (indoors). It actually worked out perfect for the rain to start so we were able to capture a few pics with the two of them under an umbrella- which always makes a great prop for photos! Kate & Bob were married at the Vail Interfaith Chapel and held their reception at Ludwig’s Terrace at the Sonnenalp Resort. Kate’s family is Polish so it was very cool to hear peoples speaking in Polish (and Kate’s accent is awesome). Bob’s mom learned a little Polish to read a special message to the couple and Kate’s family during the toasts- to see how much that meant to Kate & her family was so beautiful. We had a wonderful time photographing their wedding and captured so many great images! Congrats guys!
