Glenwood Springs Wedding Photographer | Matt + Amy

Another GORGEOUS wedding has taken place this summer and this time we traveled lengths of the Roaring Fork Valley.  Matt and Amy were wed at the beautiful St. Stephen Catholic Church in Glenwood Springs, Colorado with the reception held at the lovely Redstone Inn.  The church in Glenwood is stunning!  If you haven't been, I suggest you put it on your list of places to visit.  It's truly incredible!  Following the ceremony the bridal party hopped into a party bus provided by Charm Chauffeurs and traveled to Redstone, CO for the reception.  We made stops in Carbondale for photo opps with the Majestic Mt. Sopris and then proceeded to venture past Redstone for photos near Marble.  It was quite the day and so many amazing photos for the new couple to enjoy for eternity!  Take a look and be sure to check out the vendors for all of your wedding planning needs!

Great Gatsby Wedding | Ruben + Carrie | Grand Junction Photographer

Who doesn't love a themed wedding?!  How about the Great Gatsby themed wedding?!  I love when a couple decides to stray from tradition and add a little funk and fun to their special day!  Ruben and Carrie did just that!  These two have been together for 5 years and decided it was time to tie the knot.  They love throwing themed parties and thought why not have a themed wedding!  With all the hairstyles changing back to the hipster comb over, 1920's style, they decided to do a Great Gatsby wedding!  They knew all of their family and friends would love to dress the part.  And they did!  Every single guest participated and showed up in their best Gatsby attire!  It was truly the most unique and beautiful wedding I've seen.  Ruben and Carrie wish to send a BIG thank you to all of their vendors and guests for making their day so memorable!

Mox + Courtney | Palisade Colorado Wedding Photographer

I'm terrible at writing for my blog so I'm trying something a little different and I asked Courtney and Mox to share their love story with us!  Here goes....

From the Bride:  I actually don't remember meeting Mox the first time. It was the 3rd of July and I was subbing for a friend on Mox's kickball team. The group went out for drinks after the game and I do remember fireworks, but not the kind that Mox had hoped for! He remembered me and somehow we ended up with a bunch of mutual friends a few days later celebrating Mox's birthday. A month later I was a regular on the kickball team and we began to hang out as a team on a weekly basis. It wasn't until the end of August when a group of us all went to the Mumford and Sons concert at Red Rocks that I knew I really liked this guy - who doesn't want a gentleman to walk her to the porta potty! We had already shared our first kiss before we had our first official date together in early September. From the very beginning, it was all so comfortable and so natural to just be ourselves together - I didn't even freak when he bought me a ticket to meet his family in Minnesota only a month or so after dating - something he's never done with any other girl! He said I love you first but we both were already madly in love and though we never really talked about it, we both just knew that this was it. On Memorial Day weekend 2014, I was recovering from bronchitis and begrudgingly agreed to take a hike above Lake Dillon. It was above the lake where he proposed and I was so taken back, I tripped over a rock and nearly tumbled down the mountain! Of course I said yes!

After an engagement party, a trip to New York, India, Thailand, and China - the wedding planning began. We knew we wanted to have the wedding in Colorado and to make it somewhat of a destination, so we decided to scope out the Western Slope. We instantly fell in love with the area. After seeing only two venues, we knew that Maison la Belle Vie was the one - it was large enough to accommodate our huge family, yet quaint enough to feel intimate and cozy.

Mox and I both worked together on nearly every aspect of the wedding, from the DIY save the dates and invitations, to the small details like the homemade lavender soap favors! I know grooms who sit back and allow their brides to take the reigns, but Mox being so involved made the entire process so easy and fun! Someone actually said to me "I don't know whether to be worried or impressed about how laid back you are!" We tried to enjoy every minute of the planning - the countless hours we spent punching holes and gluing together invitations (all the while drinking red wine from the venue, of course!), the painstaking process of reupholstering our vintage chairs (an amazing $10 find at Goodwill), sweating bullets while potting herbs in the parking lot of our Grand Junction hotel the day before the wedding, and even the "worst" part of any wedding planning - the cupcake tasting:) We could not have seen our vision come to fruition without the help of my bestie Danielle (who needs to follow her calling of being a wedding coordinator extraordinaire). She spent the morning filling the mason jars with lavender bundles, stacking the lemons, lining up the place cards, setting the gorgeous sweeheart table and every other little detail. One tiny snag - our wedding officiant's office flooded and our marriage license was destroyed. So weren't official until after the honeymoon! If that's the worst that could happen I'd say the day was a success.

It couldn't have gone any smoother otherwise! A wedding will go where it wants to go based on the tone set by the bride and groom - the little things that every bride thinks will matter, in the end, work out exactly the way they are supposed to. At the end of the day, I got to marry my best friend and that's the most important thing of all!

Here is a little DIY Wedding inspiration for those brides who like to have a little more control!  Ty and Aprille were married this past September at the beautiful Flying Dog Ranch in Carbondale, Colorado.  As you can see from the photos, the ranch fits any rustic country theme complete with breathtaking views of Mt.

Inspiration Winter Wedding Shoot | Colorado Wedding Photographer

Why plan a winter wedding?

As a wedding vendor I know that the busiest months for marriage are May through September and you can be sure that couples book the vendors they want up to a year in advance.  Couples often miss out on the perfect venue or wedding photographer or even the most popular DJ because the summer months fill up so quickly.  So, why not plan a winter wedding?

Here are a few reasons you might want to consider holding off until the snow flies!

~ A winter wedding provides a magical feel of "winter wonderland"!

~  Guests schedules are less busy during the winter months because most people plan family vacations throughout the warmer season.  You are sure to see a lot more RSVP's from your guest list!

~  The snow and dreary backdrops are surprisingly beneficial when planning out your color scheme as they pretty much go with anything.  You can add as much contrast as you like without worrying about whether or not your wedding colors will clash with the freshly mowed green grass.

~  If you are a holiday fanatic then you have the option of planning for a Christmas or New Year's themed wedding

~   Most of all:  Winter weddings can be much lighter on the pocket book and your budget as most vendors offer discounts during the slower seasons!  (That's reason enough right there!)

Check out the video below to see what myself and the pros at I Do and Parties Too and The Bride and Bloom Design Company  can do to help you plan the perfect winter wedding!

 

Special thanks to all of the vendors that helped coordinate this beautiful inspiration shoot held in the mountains of gorgeous Colorado!
