Sarah & Eric Get Married!

I was incredibly honored when my friends Sarah and Eric put their trust in me and asked if I would photograph their wedding in Beaver Creek.  They got married over President’s Day weekend and it was so beautiful, so intimate, and there was SO much love.

It was an emotional few days leading up to the wedding for me because I was in Minnesota with my family after my dad suffered a heart attack and then went through open heart surgery.  We all made it through (thanks be) and I flew back to Denver the night before the wedding.  I was very anxious thinking about the photos and the morning of I was incredibly nervous. I was so grateful that the day was filled with friends and people I love.  It was a great welcome home.

I met the girls that morning at the beautiful Beaver Creek Westin where they were getting buffed and shined…and oxygenated.

~ It is believed that Mirabelle stands on the site of the first home in the Valley of Beaver Creek, the log residence of George Townsend, who settled there in 1881-82.   It is now an exquisite restaurant (so good) and the owners have done a wonderful job of preserving the original charm and character of the home.  It was such a perfect choice for Sarah and Eric’s intimate day. ~
