This breathtaking rocky mountain wedding comes to us from Rebecca of Third Eye Photography based in Crested Butte, Colorado! Here’s Rebecca to tell us more:
Soaring through the air, Bernida looked down and saw WILL YOU MARRY ME? written on the ground. Nearby, where she would land, Adam knelt on one knee waiting for her answer. Avid hikers, boaters, bikers and nature-lovers, Bernida and Adam knew they wanted a mountain wedding to start their life-long journey together. Living in Denver, they often escaped to the beautiful mountain town of Crested Butte to enjoy the outdoors. Bernida and Adam got married on Crested Butte Mountain overlooking the Paradise Divide Mountain Range.
See more after the cut!
They celebrated with their seventy-five guests, with an intimate dinner in Uleys Cabin and dancing in a twinkling-lighted tent. Handcrafted bags of s’mores, along with handwritten recipes tied to cookie cutters were some of the details of this rustic mountain wedding. Bernida wore her grandmother’s pearls and Adam tucked his grandfather’s pocketknife into his jacket. The morning was unusually rainy for September and the skies were ominous. I brought three umbrellas with ideas for images of backlit kissing photos in the rain. The guys were relaxed and candid while getting ready, but the girls were excited and nervous. By the time we got to Uley’s Cabin where Bernida was to put on her dress, the skies were clearing and the rains ceasing. Adam rested on the cabin deck awaiting the first look of his beautiful bride.
The laughter between them was contagious, setting the mood. Madly in love, the two of them were adorable and lighthearted all day. Puffy clouds interspersed between rays of sun during the afternoon. The gold and oranges of the aspen trees sparkled in the wind. Love filled the room, as tears were shed while laughter erupted during dinner and toasts continued into the night. It was a perfect wedding. I never wanted it to end! Two beautiful people with big hearts make my job so enjoyable. Deep in the aspen grove of Mt. Crested Butte, and inspired by the love between Bernida and Adam, we were able to create some extraordinary wedding portraits. The trees were at peak color, the light radiant and the couple delirious with love. The stars were aligned.
Congratulations Bernida & Adam and thank you Rebecca for sharing! For more information about Third Eye Photography, please visit her website.
