So we will leave you with a piece of advice - carry these three lessons with you. Remain hopeful and optimistic that your dream wedding will come true. Work hard to achieve what you envision for your big day. But don’t get easily frustrated or depressed when your expectations are not met.
This Colorado destination wedding may have all the extravagance a couple can wish for. The bride wears a gorgeous gown and the groom looks dashing in his suit. They married in a beautiful venue. There are even sparklers that add drama to their wedding reception march. But at the end of the day, even when there are differences in various weddings, all of them are already perfect.
Never ever lose sight of the real reason for the celebration - that you have found the person to be with for the rest of your life. That alone is more than enough reason to celebrate.
More details about the couple and their wedding day ... Meagan and Brad were both born and raised in Texas. Meagan is from Corpus Chrisi and Brad is from Houston. They both attended the University of Texas, but they actually didn't meet until after college while both working in downtown Houston through mutual friends. They got engaged while vacation in Napa. Brad proposed the first night of their trip while staying at Meadowood in St. Helena. They had reservations at the restaurant at Meadowood and Brad suggested that they take a walk before dinner to check out the gorgeous grounds, They walked from their room down to a lake and while standing along under the moonlight, Brad asked Meagan to be his wife.
They wanted a small destination wedding to allow them to spend quality time with their family and friends that were invited to celebrate with them in Beaver Creek. They also wanted an outdoor ceremony to reflect their personalities so they had a good friend marry them, Brad's cousin read a bible verse, and Meagan's aunt read her favorite poem. I took their engagement photos in Beaver Creek in February and given that they wanted to take advantage of the beautiful snowy atmosphere, the blizzard that blew through that day gave us the perfect opportunity to do just that!
They both love the food and burgeoning art and music scene in Houston and also that the culture reflects the diverse and genuine people that live there. They are both into wine and great food and appropriately decided to honeymoon in Tuscany, a part of Italy that neither had visited before.
Thank you so much to the wonderful staff at the Ritz-Carlton; to Bella Design and Planning for their flawless execution; to Jennifer Winder for being my fantastic second shooter; to Bare Root Flora for the gorgeous decor, and to Starkey Productions for the rocking band! Last but not least, a huge THANK YOU to Meagan and Brad and all of their family and friends for being so amazing to work with and for inviting me to capture such a special day that undoubtedly they will remember for the rest of their lives.
I always appreciate the feedback I get from my clients and when Meagan sent me this note, it absolutely made my day!
"Frances, you were a dream to work with. We appreciated your laid-back personality and professionalism. You were always punctual, full of great energy and ideas, and made Brad and me feel comfortable and ourselves. The day after the wedding everyone commented on how invested you were in capturing your shots -- on chairs, on the floor, jumping around! You did an INCREDIBLE job. I am so thrilled with the photos and cannot wait to spend several more hours (or days) pouring through them. Thank you SO much for everything! You are incredibly talented!"~Meagan Glover
