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.
~ Sarah brought these old Glamour Shot proof sheets with as ‘inspiration’ for her wedding day look. It was hysterical. ~~ Renee at Bang salon of Denver did an incredible job on everyones makeup. ~ ~ Look. At. That. Face. ~
~ After the very relaxed and fun morning we headed over to the ceremony and reception site which is where Miss Sarah got into her stunning gown. ~
~ 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. ~
~ Priceless. The first look photos are always my favorite! ~
~ Sarah has such a wonderful and unique relationship with her Father, Sheldon. The love in her family is so obvious and pretty remarkable. It was fun to be able to capture it throughout the day. ~
Sarah’s got such an effortless style and it was fun to see that shine through on her wedding day. From the Frye boots, Anthropologie earrings for the girls, and beautiful dark turquoise cowl she wore to the mason jars, shimmery burlap, and handmade aspen candle holders…everything was amazing. ~ Eric and Sarah had an intimate and incredibly personal ceremony by candlelight. It really was beautiful. Following the ceremony there was a delicious meal, plenty of cake, dancing and an after party…oh, and sparklers of course! ~ ~ Congratulations my friends. Thank you again for letting me be a part of it. ~
