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!

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!
