A family affair summer Colorado mountain meadow Wedding!
Gorgeous outdoor ceremony with coolest wedding party entrance EVER.
Oh man....where to start!? So, this totally gorgeous and awesome couple happens to be family for me! Wes is my cousin, like a brother, and I was so excited to be able to help them with their wedding and document such a fun day for them!! Because of that....this is a bit of a long post! ;) There are some photos of my family in here too-- which is fun to be able to put up on my blog! (One of yours truly in the field as well!)
I want to thank my friend and fellow fantastic wedding photographer, Erin Cady, for shooting with me that day- there are a good handful of images on this post (as we split up during the day!) that are hers-- so I want to give her due credit! Thank you friend!
Ah Evergreen.....I love this place. So much so.....that I may actually be calling it home soon.....more on that later. I love the mountain feel, mixed with rolling meadows and open space....it's a perfect setting for weddings! the Red Barn at The Meadows at Marshdale is a totally unique location for both ceremony and reception! Hopefully you will see from the photos below what a cool place it is! Complete with giant herd of Elk....always a hit for out of towners!
There were so many things about this wedding that made it so unique and memorable. From the joining of not only two people....but a son as well...to Wes's sister, Tristan, walking with him down the aisle (Mother had passed away), to the totally awesome Great Dane, Dax, as Ring bearer....hilarious brothers of the bride as Officiants, slideshow of Wes and his mother, Father as Best man, one of the most entertaining first dances I have ever seen, and of course....the totally awesome bridal party entrance in restored old Car's, and Wes's entrance on his Motorcycle...
Just an awesome day.
I am so so happy for these two-- and so honored to have been their photographer! I love you guys!! Can't wait for your next adventure!!!
