Ryan & Frances – TWO RIVERS WINERY WEDDING

2017-10-20_0024.jpg

As Ryan zipped up her dress, a smile spread across her face. She turned around and gave him a kiss. The excitement in the room was contagious. They were going to be married today. And they were determined to soak up every second. Together. 

Most couples have a full day of events and things to do when they get married. But they actually only spend a few short hours together. It’s just how it goes sometimes. But Ryan and Frances decided that wasn’t going to be the case for them. They helped each other get ready. They went about their day, laughing and just enjoying each other’s company. Because who doesn’t want to spend their entire wedding day with their best friend? 

And this decision just fit Ryan and Frances. their friends described them as so kind, loving and even the cuddliest people they know. So enjoying their day together just fit. 

It was a beautiful, intimate and perfect day. 

Ryan and Frances, thank you so much for inviting me to be a part of your love story. There is something so amazing about being around two people who are such a perfect match. I just know your days are going to be filled with amazing adventures and an over abundance of laughter. Which sounds like a paradise to me! Congrats you two!!!

“Why are you doing that?”

Early in the day the girls came up to me as I was photographing the details of their parents wedding day and asked this question.

Because that is what it is all about.

Cat & Brandon – LAVENDER INSPIRED WINE COUNTRY INN WEDDING

2017-06-21_0053.jpg

He met with her couples group for over a year and a half. On Facetime. He picked up and moved his whole life to Grand Junction. For her.  Because when two people are just meant to be, there is nothing that can stand in their way.

Relationships are hard to begin with, and so when I meet a couple who not only made it work, but thrived during their long distance time, I know that they are the stuff of legends.
