This exuberant alpine wedding comes to us from Rebecca Ofstedahl of Third Eye Photography, based in Crested Butte, Colorado! Here’s Rebecca to tell us more:

Yves and Julie’s story begins with a double date and went from like to love during a spontaneous trip to Hawaii. Yves and Julie were enjoying everything each other’s cultures had to offer and all the things they were teaching and learning about one another. They quickly realized they could not be apart and got suckered into the long distance relationship that everyone dreads.

See more after the cut!

However, thanks to Yves’ hard work, he was able to come back on another Visa to write his Master’s Thesis. During this time it became clear that the whole thing was more serious than either could imagine. With a blessing from Julie’s parents and some wonderful videos from friends and family, Yves took her to Germany and asked her to marry him. From there you could say, the rest was history.

Yves & Julie officially tied the knot on March 1st, 2014. It was a beautiful snowy day and with the help of face time, all immediate family was able to be there. Everyone else was dearly missed!!! But because it was so nice, they’re doing it twice! The second time around, they are asking friends and family to come to Crested Butte and celebrate with them as they start another chapter in their wonderful story.


Congratulations Julie & Yves and thank you Rebecca for sharing! For more information about Third Eye Photography, please visit their WeddingLovely Vendor Guide profile or head straight to their website.
