Megan and I have been excited about photographing Erika and Nick's wedding for over a year. A traditional ceremony at the beautiful Our Lady of the Mountain Catholic Church, a reception at the Aspen Lodge and lots of time for some romantic portraits around Estes Park with a fun couple, what's not to like. Then they turned up the excitement level by planning a Trash the Dress session the day after near Horsetooth reservoir where they planned to ride their mountain bikes in full wedding attire and then leap into the water. Oh the photo possibilities began to dance in our heads. Well the day finally arrived and the photos speak for themselves. Not even some afternoon showers slowed this couple down. Here's a preview of images with more to come once they are all edited.
Jessica and Jared came from Indiana to share their special day with family and friends in Estes Park. The views were spectacular from the pavilion at the Black Canyon Inn and the weather was perfect. Sandra and staff catered the reception at the Twin Owls Steakhouse on site. Flower girl Adelaide and ring bearer Nathan were at big hit complete with top hat and flower crown along with the 20 something elk that appeared quite at home near the lake. We took a few minutes right after sunset for some very beautiful and romantic photos outside. There will also be a reception in Indiana after Jessica and Jared return from their honeymoon that we will be supplying a music video for. Have a great time everyone.
