I can't believe it has already been a year since Julia and Tony's amazing Mexico destination wedding in Cancun! When Woody and I arrived, we immediately felt like we belonged and were old friends. Their friends and family were some of the most fun, laid back group, and it definitely helped that we had photographed their friends Amanda and Pete's wedding a couple of years prior. You can tell that Julia and Tony are incredibly loved by everyone that surrounded them that weekend, and every minute just felt like one big love celebration, which is of course how it should be. Julia and Tony, thank you so much for allowing me to capture your day, and Happiest of Anniversaries!
My New Years Resolution this year (I know what you're thinking - it's March girl, time to let that go) was to blog more. Way more. Like, I made a goal for myself to blog about my amazing clients once a week - starting with all the stuff I shot over the last two years that I didn't get to blog about because I was either preparing/pushing a baby out of my body or taking care of said baby. And I'm determined to stick to it. Even if it means going way back, because these stories deserve be shared and told. So, with that said, here is Heather and Darren's rainy yet stunning intimate wedding from last August at the Maroon Bells.
Sometimes, no matter how much you plan and prepare, there are still forces against you on your wedding day. A vendor is running late. There is an electrical issue. The best man forgets his pants. Mother Nature decides she's in a mood and is gonna bring everyone down with her. 2017 brought all of the above, but man, Mama N was especially tough to deal with. It seems as though every other weekend I was dealing with some scarzy (yes that's scary and crazy in one word, I typed it out like that and have decided it will remain as such) weather. And all of my couples were like "WELP. Let's do this!", which I think speaks volumes as to the kinds of people they will be when hard times come their way, and how they will face the ups and downs that come with being in a committed relationship.
When Heather and Darren arrived at the Maroon Bells for their wedding ceremony, they didn't even bat an eyelash. Rain? Grab an umbrella folks. This is happening. They walked down the aisle in the rain, were trekking through the mud for me, and eventually Heather even went wading in the lake (which actually helped get some mud and dirt off the bottom of her dress). H & D, thank you so much for letting me capture your love at the Maroon Bells and for being so incredibly cool!
Listening to: Altered Carbon on Netflix. This show is ridiculous.
