MARK & ERIN | Lionscrest Manor Wedding

It all began in 7th grade.

We lived in the mountains while my parents were looking for a house, just having moved from California. We shared the same bus stop. That my mom insisted on driving us to and drooping us at off at when they had narrowed down a neighborhood. Driven to and dropped off at the bus stop. (Yes you ready that right!) So there we were. Starting a new school, 13 and awkward. Erin and I quickly found one another and became attached at the hip. All through Jr. High we were inseparable. Sleep overs on the trampoline during summer nights, sneaking out to meet the neighbor boys and dancing in the black light. We have so many memories from those years. As time came and went, our friendship changes as well. And while we have not always remained so inseparable past those years, I can say a few things about who Erin has become. Stunning, humble, kind, hardworking, driven, adventurous, sincere, and you will always see her smiling. And now she is smiling at Mark.

Erin I am beyond thrilled that you have found Mark. Someone who shares your life’s adventures and dreams. Someone who will always love you simply. Who being with is effortless. A man you admire and respect, who’s playfulness keeps you shining bright and patients can guide you through life. Mark, thank you for loving Erin the way you do. To hear how she feels about you through her vows and her laughter is something so amazingly special. The two of you have what people dream about. Here is to wishing you both nothing but happiness, adventure and  love for the rest of your lives together.

NATE & ROBIN | Married

On the snow kissed Colorado ground, Nate and Robin traveled from Virginia where they are both stationed in the Navy to say their vows. Surrounded by the cold crisp air and the warmth of family and loved ones, they begin the rest of their lives together.

DARREN & KATHERINE | The Lodge at Sunspot Wedding

The snow was falling and the music was loud. She walked in and saw him. Watching the band keeping to himself, he was enjoying the winter night out with friends. When he turned around he saw her for the first time. His face became full of the amazing smile that she didn’t know she would soon fall in love with, but he stopped and asked her for her name. Quickly he introduced himself after learning who she was and then went about his night. Nothing else. Just a quick smile and a hello. Having lived in there for a handful of previous winters he knew she was new to town just having moved from Maine. But little did he know that the new girl would be the one who stole his heart. It wasn’t long before he called her at work asking her to meet him out for a drink. Spending the winter together and after the summer both resuming their lives across many states, they knew Winter Park was the place they wanted to begin their love and lives together.

Katherine, Darren, and all of your amazing family and friends… The two of you and the way you look at each other is amazing. To be able to witness your stunning wedding day filled with the most amount of love from family and friends that I have ever seen following a ceremony was so perfect. From the joyful tears and strong heartfelt embraces, it was apparent how special you and your love for one another truly is. Getting to know you over the last year has been wonderful and I look forward to the friendship and laughs to come! I hope you all enjoy taking a small glimpse into your perfect mountain top celebration through your images. Thank you beyond words for allowing us to share in your day.
