I just loved this day. Lauren and Danny are such genuine, sweet people…and you could not wipe the big grins off their faces all day!! It’s truly something special when people are just completely content and into each other on their wedding day! It actually poured rain for these two right around ceremony time….which can make for a potentially stressful time….but they took it in stride, and we rolled with it! the rain let up, and they were able to have their beautiful outdoor ceremony on the top of Arapahoe Basin mountain!
We started the day at Lauren’s moms place in Keystone…which was a perfect location for getting ready! We did some portraits and pics right in the “backyard”, which had gorgeous mountain views! Then we packed up the crew and headed towards Lake Dillon to get some cool Wedding Party shots in the fields! The sun and weather cooperated with us just long enough- phew!!
After we arrived to Arapahoe Basin, and guests loaded the Chairlifts (always a great time!), the damn rain decided it was time to show! Again, these two took it like champs though, and the whole Staff at Black Mountain Lodge was amazing….and after waiting it out a bit, it cleared just long enough for a beautiful rest of the evening!! YAYYYY!!!!!
Of course I had to take them back out to the back mountain around sunset to get some more shots! This is always my favorite time of day to do Bride and Groom portraits…..even if it is not an “epic” sunset….everything is just more relaxed, and the light is always prettier!
the rest of the evening went off without a hitch…and turned into a killer time on the dance floor! These peeps can party!!!
thanks to my second shooter- Jennie Crate- for sharp shooting with me that day- it was truly a “two shooter” type of day with the weather, chairlifts, etc….and I am thankful to have had an amazing friend and colleague with me!
Thanks to the crew at Black Mountain Lodge and Arapahoe Basin as well- great work!!
