Before our daughter was born, Rick and I used to travel all over the U.S. shooting weddings. It wasn’t uncommon for us to not ‘meet’ our couples until their big day, even though we had talked with them so much before then it seemed like we were old friends. Once Chloe came into our lives, we slowed down our pace and started to focus on our two favorite states: Wyoming & Colorado. Colorado is an interesting state filled with beautiful places to get married. Because of this we end up having a few couples each year who plan their destination wedding there. Meet Erin and Doug… These two live in Texas but have a passion for skiing and snowboarding. It only made sense that they would plan their wedding at one of the most beautiful wedding venue’s in Summit County, Ten Mile Station.
It was important to them that we were able to take advantage of Breckenridge’s beautiful scenery when it came to their bridal portraits. Although an afternoon rain shower made this a slightly bigger task than we expected, these guys were awesome. We photographed under chair lifts, in the middle of gorgeous meadows and in front of that gorgeous mountain view that Ten Mile Station is famous for. Erin incorporated the cutest hand made signs and even decorated the bottom of their shoes!
Besides being obsessed with powder these two also have a strong affection for amazing food, the finer things in life and great beer. In fact they love beer SO MUCH that brewery theme and decor was strewn throughout their big day. We loved their wedding, we MORE than loved their wedding. Everyone had a blast and the details were amazing enough to make your heart swoon. The entire event was flawlessly planned by Lilli and her team from Bella Calla, who also happened to provide the beautiful floral decor as well. From the moment heir guests signed in on their vintage ski guestbook to when they were standing in line sending them off with sparklers, it was impossible to attend their wedding and NOT have a fabulous time.
Erin and Doug, it was so nice to work with you and your family. We can honestly say you have one of the nicest families we have ever met, everyone treated us so well and it was our honor to be able to document your day for you. Good luck in Texas you two. Cannot wait to see what is in store for you next!
