Aspen Weddings

Maroon Bells Elopement | Kaitlin + Luke

What better place on earth for an elopement than Maroon Bells!  Kaitlin and Luke planned their destination wedding from their home in North Carolina and they did an incredible job!  Despite the smoke in the air from local Colorado fires, the Bells was breathtaking as usual.  Following their midday ceremony we ventured to the streets of downtown Aspen where we found even more beautiful backdrops and amazing people who cheered them on as we walked around town.  The day was perfect in every aspect!  If you or anyone you know is thinking of eloping then I highly suggest planning your day at the Majestic Maroon Bells! 

Congrats, Kaitlin & Luke!

Hair & Makeup:  Salon Tullio | Lodging:  Hotel Aspen | Venue: Maroon Bells | Dinner Reception: Jimmy's | Videography:  Be The Xperience | Photography:  Carrie Johnson Photography

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!
