Abbey & Ehren // Hitched // Tabernash Wedding Photographer

Fun fact: Woody and I met in a town just outside of Tabernash. So when I get the opportunity to shoot a wedding anywhere in Grand County, I jump on it - mostly because I'm reminded of the huge leap of faith I took leaving Miami and everything I knew behind to live in a town of 46 people. And while Woody and I have moved and no longer live there, it was and still is one of the best decisions I have ever made, and Winter Park is still so dear to me.

Abbey and Ehren got married on their family ranch, surrounded by everyone they know and love. Littered about the property were the tents of several friends, a sign that even once the last song played, the party would be continuing late into the evening. I was pregnant with Luna when I shot this wedding, so I was already more emotional then usual, but I think this wedding would have gotten to me anyways - Ehren's best man had passed away tragically only a few short weeks before the wedding, and there were small touches here and there meant to let everyone know that despite his absence, he was not forgotten.

The day was emotional, but also full of a lot of love and laughter, and I loved capturing every minute of it. This is what love is all about.
