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!

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!
