Mesa Lakes Wedding | Alisha + Dan

Planning a destination wedding can be such a fun experience if you have the right friends and professionals in your corner. Alisha and Dan were wed on August 18th at the beautifully rustic Mesa Lakes Lodge and they planned it all from their home in Oregon! Luckily, they had plenty of help from local friends and family to see to it that everything was prepared exactly to their liking.

It was such a pleasure getting to know the adorable couple and their loved ones. Alisha’s smile and laughter is infectious and she brought so much excitement to the party!

A few of the Vendors for the day included:

Venue, Lodging, Catering: Mesa Lakes Lodge | Floral Design: Country Elegance | Cake & Deserts: Sweet Kiwi | Bridal Gown: Rosewood Bridal (Sophia Tolli) | Photography: Carrie Johnson Photography & Assistant Kayleigh Rust

Congratulations, Alisha & Dan!

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!

A Geek Wedding | Alex + Britt

What's a nerdy, science themed wedding without an actual chemical reaction?!  Alex and Britt recently tied the knot at Pioneer Town in Cedaredge, CO and let me tell you their wedding was EPIC!  Every last detail of their big day has a story behind it, all the way down to the cat litter buckets used to display flowers at the greeting table.  I will give you the specifics in a later post once I've finished editing this amazing wedding.  For now, please enjoy these few sneak peeks of the nerdiest wedding I've ever photographed!

Thanks, Britt and Alex!

Colorado Wedding Photographer | Christian + Amber

As a Colorado Wedding Photographer I have the privilege of photographing some of the most gorgeous weddings!  Christian and Amber's June 25th wedding was one for the books!  I'm almost certain that the entire town of Collbran and perhaps a good portion of Mesa attended their celebration at the Feller Ranch on the Grand Mesa.  The couple's wedding was almost entirely DIY with family from all over pitching in to see that the day went off with out a hitch.  Take a look at their sneak peeks here and stay tuned for more from this grand wedding!
