With such a beautiful bride, an amazing dress and gorgeous venue, this wedding day was bound to be any wedding photographer’s dream.
The very cute and happy couple decided to get married outside of Beano’s Cabin at Beaver Creek, Colorado. The perfect spot for Tory & Doug to exchange their vows- high up in the mountains in the beautiful outdoors of Colorado. The two lovebirds met at a summer camp in Vermont and have been together since 2007. In fact, the director of the same camp conducted their wedding ceremony! The touching and meaningful outdoor ceremony came to close after Doug proudly stomped and broke the glass.
Shortly after the ceremony I grabbed the official newlyweds for some fun photos in the flowers and tall grass, where I could capture some intimate and scenic images. We were even lucky enough to have some special visitors, a lovely couple of curious deer apparently wanted their fifteen minutes of fame! The adorable deer came up right behind Tory and Doug’s little photo session, it was so memorable and a great moment!
The reception was filled with toasts, dancing, good music and great food. Homemade favors prepared by the couple were given to guests, delicious jam and pickles. The flowers, done by Vintage Magnolia, matched perfectly with the wedding colors of purple and green, creating a rich and elegant feel. There was no traditional white cake at this wedding, instead, lots of delicious individual pies!
I had a wonderful time photographing Tory and Doug’s big day, I knew Tory enjoyed my photo-journalistic approach to wedding photography, so we stayed away from too much formal posing, which worked out wonderfully. Hope to see you both soon, I wish you all the best!
