A bride in her long white wedding dress. Isn’t this what most girls dream of at some point in their lifetime?
This black and white image of the beautiful bride looking at her reflection in the mirror does not need any color at all to show how happy this woman is at that precise moment of her wedding day. This image that was captured by a Colorado wedding photographer is one that the bride would love to share on social media right away.
This moment shows that second when she finally sees herself looking stunning for the celebration that will come after. She might be imagining a lot of things, like how perfect this wedding dress fits on her. She might remember how difficult it was for her to choose for The Gown and how right she was for finally choosing this dress. She may think that all the hardships during the wedding planning and preparation are all worth it because the day she will say I do has finally arrived. She might feel so blessed for choosing the makeup artist and hair stylist who created her look because they were obviously successful in bringing out the best in her.
Even her bridesmaids cannot hide their awe of how their dear friend looks right at this very moment.
The story of the bride, groom, and wedding venue ... Beano's Cabin Wedding: Out of all of the amazing venues to choose from in the Rocky Mountains, Beano's Cabin, located mid-mountain in Beaver Creek is my #1 favorite venue of all time! Truly, I have never had less than a fantastic, two thumbs up, over the top, amazing experience photographing there! Couples that choose that venue are always people that I have an instant report with, the weddings are always beyond gorgeous, and to top it off, I always get a really amazing dinner! HA!
Emily and Alex's wedding was no exception. And talk about LUCKY! We were minutes away from moving the ceremony inside due to intermittent rain showers, but the wonderful Beano's staff and the fantastic planners were watching the weather radar like hawks and saw an opening. We moved the ceremony up about 10 minutes and the timing was impeccable! Alex and Emily got to have their picture perfect outdoor ceremony outside with the mountain backdrop, just like they had always dreamed of, and their guests got to have the scenic experience that had been planned for them.
They planned their destination wedding with the help of the wonderful ladies from Bella Event Design & Planning. Emily, the owner, recommended me to the couple and after checking out my work online, they hired me without ever meeting me. We clicked instantaneously and I spent the day photographing them like they were old friends.
Before I dive into sharing their beautiful images (which I am over the moon about), I want to give thanks to all of the fabulous vendors that made this day so perfect. Vintage Magnolia provided the lovely floral arrangements, bouquets and boutonnieres. Mountain Flour provided the delicious wedding cake (I know because I tried it!). Diamond Empire Band rocked the house during the reception. And finally, a massive thanks to everyone at Beano's Cabin that provided 5-star service not only to the couple and the guests, but to all of the vendors too. Thank you also to my associate, Telly Weddon, for being a total trooper and a fantastic second shooter! We rocked it sister!
Lastly, I just have to share a few words from the bride because these kinds of things are what keep me so inspired and passionate about what I do!
First of all, we LOVE the photos!!! Could not be more happy with how they all turned out. You and Telly did such a fantastic job. We can't thank you enough! We can't stop looking through all the wedding photos over and over -- They all bring back such amazing memories and make us want to renew our vows already ;-) You captured everything perfectly!!! Our family and friends cannot stop raving about them either!
We will recommend you to anyone and everyone! Truly, we may be your biggest fans! :-)
Emily & Alex
