Ever since Sean and I moved back to Colorado we have been looking forward to shooting weddings featuring the blue skies and rocky mountains that make this state one of the most picturesque places to get married in the country. With perfect weather, a gorgeous couple, a fabulous venue, and mountains in every direction, Mindy and Tyler's wedding up in Crested Butte, Colorado, could not have fit the bill more perfectly!
The entire event took place in and around the Club at Crested Butte. I photographed Mindy getting ready in the club's bridal suite while Sean photographed the boys in one of the housing units nearby. Mindy and Tyler are some of the sweetest people you'll ever meet, which made being their wedding photographers a real pleasure for both of us!
And now onto the boys! Sean did a wonderful job as usual!
We were in love with the couple's romantic outdoor mountain view ceremony site. There wasn't a bad direction to take pictures from! When all was said and done, I especially loved how happy these two looked walking back down the aisle during the recessional.
We had time for a quick bridal party shot on the golf carts, and then it was on to the bride and groom photos we were just itching to take from the moment we laid eyes on this venue! We already knew Mindy was a rock star in front of the camera from her bridal portrait session a couple of weeks earlier, but Tyler surprised us by letting himself fall into some really beautiful natural moments with Mindy that it was our pleasure to just stand back and capture!
With its bright classy cabin atmosphere, the reception hall was a true reflection of the Crested-Butte charm we noticed was just everywhere in this little town. The couple celebrated with some emotional first dances, followed by moments of pure laughter and fun!
To Mindy & Tyler: Sean and I can't thank you enough for choosing us to photograph your wedding! It's not every day two people as beautiful, successful, and down to earth as both of you find each other. We could see the love written on both of your faces every time you so much as looked in each other's direction, and were so inspired by it. It's been our privilege to be part of your day!
