Backyard Wedding Love

Deb and Ryan worked for months on their backyard, because that’s where they held their intimate wedding ceremony. The Salida couple kept it simple, sweet and sincere. It was a perfect day for a backyard wedding. After the ceremony, more friends were invited to partake in the reception – which was in the front yard more »

River Wedding!

Jodi and Claude are the ultimate adventure couple. They participate (and excel) in every outdoor recreation imaginable. For example, I once ran into Jodi at the top of the Monarch Crest Trail. Once she got on her bike, I never saw her again. Jodi and Claude live in Salida and are always down for a more »

Elopement at Mt. Princeton!

Maggie and Zach eloped to Mt. Princeton Hot Springs and Resort. They had a short and sweet ceremony, and then we took some pictures around the resort. The couple planned on soaking a bit, then going jeeping and having a bit of a holiday while in Chaffee County. They said their elopement was perfect. I more »

Jamaican Vows

  I dream of wedding destinations. I’ve done several, but in Jamaica a wedding gig took me all the way to Negril, Jamaica. It was my first time in the country. I absolutely loved the scenery and the people. Sadly, I didn’t leave myself enough time to explore outside of the Negril resort area. However, more »

Mr. & Mrs. Winkler!

Texan couple Misty and Dustin decided on a Salida ceremony, next to the Arkansas River. They wanted it brief before they eloped to enjoy the mountains.

Mr. & Mrs. McAsey!

Chad and Michelle McAsey had a small, intimate ceremony at Mt. Princeton Hot Springs Resort in July. The ceremony was full of love, laughter and giggles. Their two girls had quite the giggle fit mid-ceremony (which I quite enjoyed). Their giggles were infectious and got most of those in attendance to laugh – including the bride and more »

Mr. & Mrs. Porzio!

I spent the entire day with Mike and Erin on their wedding day in July. We really got to know one another. They are young, sweet, passionate and fun! I giggled often with these two. I loved hearing their friends and family praise them separately and as a pair. These two have staying power. Congratulations more »

Mr. & Mrs. Tuck!

Sean and Lisa are the best. I met with them a few days before their intimate wedding in Buena Vista, Colorado. We laughed and chatted for two hours. Since their wedding I’ve enjoyed Lisas’ facebook updates about their honeymoon in Ireland (one of my favorite paces in the world) and their home improvement projects to more »
