Gwen + Jesse’s Elegant Mountain Wedding

Gwen and Jesse were married on a beautiful, yet chilly May day in Vail, Colorado at Donovan Pavilion!  Guests flew in from all over the states to watch these two love birds say their I Do’s.  We continued the party with a fabulous dinner by Ocassions Catering and danced the night away with Trading Post Duo!

Enjoy these fabulous pictures and video from Lisa O’Dwyer Photo and Canvas and Light!

Maddy + Lucas’ Vail Wedding

When I first met with Maddy + Lucas at a cute little coffee shop on Pearl St, I knew we were going to hit it off!

Maddy + Lucas are the definition of love and their wedding was proof!  A group of fantastic vendors came together to put on a party of a lifetime for the happy couple and their family and friends! The rain cleared just in time for a beautiful (but cold) outdoor ceremony, but everyone was all smiles and (happy) tears.

Did I mention that the couples pups played as the ring bearer and flower girl? The proof is in the pictures!

We were published in Rocky Mountain Bride!

We were published in Rocky Mountain Bride a few weeks ago!  Check out this awesome write up about our Piney River Ranch shoot!

Piney River Ranch is home to some of Colorado’s most beautiful mountain vistas, and in collaboration wonderful vendor team, we had the chance to really show off what a rustic and romantic autumn wedding could look like here! Haley Hyman with Platinum Weddings and Events designed and conducted the entire shoot. She had an idea of how she wanted it to look, but didn’t want to limit her vendors’ creativity. After all, the goal was to really showcase what each of these wedding professionals can do. The models, Mary and Trask, are an actual couple that are tying the knot next year! Their dog, Sadie decided to join in, and the pictures were just beautiful. We went with purple hues, creams and greenery for our color palette, and the result was almost magical!”
