One can always find an excuse to head up to the mountains of Colorado and spend the day in beautiful Estes Park, but to spend it capturing the wonder and magic of a couple in love is one of the very best reasons to do so! In this case it was Matthew and Leah’s wedding that brought us up into the majestic Rocky Mountains on a beautiful June day. Outdoor weddings are always a crowd pleaser, and this mountain wedding with such a breathtaking backdrop, would be no different.
Romance was alive in the crisp mountain air at the Wild Basin Lodge in Allenspark, Colorado (a small community just outside Estes Park) and there was the definite sense of being transported to another time at this lovely wedding. The groom, Matthew, carried his grandfather’s pocket watch in the vest of his custom suit as he waited for his vintage gown clad bride, Leah, to stand by his side. A Goorin Bros. hat occasionally adorning his head, a look of love ever present on both of their faces, and all the while surrounded by their loved ones. This wedding was what little girls dreams are made of.
The gathering was small and intimate – a mix of a private Native American smudging and a public traditional Jewish ceremony. The perfect setting to capture the love these two so beautifully share. And capture it we did! From their approach to the altar where they would declare their love for each other, to their first moments as husband and wife, and all the joy in between and after.
As a photographer, the couple is always the most important part of the wedding; and for this couple to have the photography be at the top of their list was a match made in Colorado mountain wedding heaven.
Matt and Leah wanted to start with a first look. They liked the idea of having a private moment between the two of them before guests started arriving.
Congratulations to Matt and Leah!!
