Some of my dedicated readers (thank you mom! <3 ) know by know that after our family moved to the Denver area in Colorado, I began reaching out and booking as many jobs second shooting weddings with fellow wedding photographer creatives in order to meet some of these lovely ladies, networking and meeting people within the wedding vendor community, and of course making some money while I established my business in the Denver area.
I had the extreme pleasure of working will McCall Burau of Lucky Malone Photography when she asked me to shoot the following wedding with her in Breckenridge at Tenmile Station. I’m sure this is old news to long term locals, but oh my gosh you guys. That place is BEAUTIFUL. The lodge is exactly like you see in the movies for ski resorts, the views are unique, yet equally beautiful to all of the best Rocky Mountain views. If you’ve never been, it must be a bucket list place for all. It becomes extremely easy to see why people can fall so head over heels in love with this place I now get to call home.
Ok, so moving on- coming from another state where rustic, country weddings are the top and major trend- I was in total shock (good shock!) at the magnificence of this wedding. It was like where rustic wedding dreams find classy white table cloths and star studded skies. Just wait until you see the photos. Like I’ve said a million times before- I’m a photographer rather than a writer because I’m so much better at telling a story with pictures.
If you follow me on social media (if you don’t you should! instagram.com/monica_evans_photography) you have seen the incredible sneak peek to this gallery already. Truth be told that image wasn’t even my favorite when I first loaded those images into my computer. It was one that had gotten lost into the sea of photos that had been taken through the day- and yesterday when I was doing a double check through the edited images I wanted to share, I saw that one and could have kicked myself for missing it the first time. The image could be a poster for definition of love (not to toot my own horn, but….) it was just one of those moments when it all fell together perfectly. The look in her eyes, the smiles covering both of their faces… it is perfect- at least to me. I’ve included it in here today too- think you can guess which one it is? Feel free to comment if you think you know!
So, hurry up Monica. Get to it, we want to see the pictures already – (Don’t worry I know that’s why you’re all here they are way more fun than my silly jokes)
Can we discuss the AMAZINGNESS that is that invitation suite?! You guys, the ribbon was made of custom dried and pressed flowers….. absolutely jawdropping. Also, in case it isn’t completely obvious, I’m obsessed with that engagement ring. It is stunning brilliance and simplicity. Job well done Matt!
This dress is gown goals! I’m totally pinning this one under my gowns pinterest board!
Their first look was slightly past the trailhead near the resort, it was a precious moment. They were both so extremely happy to see each other. Like all the weight of planning, stress of trying to make everything perfect, all the details just faded away and they were so relieved to just be with each other and get ready to get married.
Those VIEWS! You guys! Look at THOSE VIEWS! Gosh I just want to go back and sit in awe of them again.
Look how sweetly she is looking up to her big brother as he marries them! I totally teared up for this one! Also while were here I should mention those impeccable boots! Luchese custom made boots for every guy! They were stunning!
And as Colorado always does- the Sunset showed up and showed out. I swear it never ever disappoints me.
I could go on and on of the amazing perfection that was this wedding- but as if nothing else could go any better- a small storm blew through and brought a massive vibrant rainbow with it! Lucky ducks! That has to be every kind of good luck charm!
And they danced the night away with their favorite people that traveled so far to celebrate them and their love. Someone remind me next time I through a large extravagant party, to do it on top of a mountain under the Colorado skies, with a clear tent above. <3 <3
