As we've mentioned (a million times)....Orbie & I LOVE travelling! Last month we got the chance to travel to gorgeous Estes Park in Colorado to photograph the wedding of Mike and Marva.
Reasons why this wedding was AWESOME:
1) Mike and Marva = SUPER fun, outgoing, funny people (our kind of peeps). Holy cow were these guys fun to work with! By association, their bridal party was just as amazing and hilarious. (Side note: Dear groomsmen, thank you for cracking me up all freaking day. I don't ever think I've had a group bust my chops so much...)
2) Mike & Marva got married at the knock-my-socks-off GORGEOUS Della Terra Mountain Chateau. This place is beyond beautiful...(see images below for proof). If you're looking for an out-of-state, totally gorgeous and elegant mountain wedding venue, do yourself a favor and check this place out. You can thank us later (and hire us to photograph of course. Everybody wins!)
3) Mike's grandmother was awesome. It didn't make the blog, but you gotta love a lady who takes it in stride when 2 groomsmen with cigars pick her up for a photo (then proceeds to take one of the cigars and put it in her mouth for the picture...a lady after my own heart)
Anywho...on to the pictures!!!
Here's Marva in the outdoor loveliness that is Estes Park....
Seriously? How can you not be in love with this area? Check out that backdrop!
Adorable moment after the ceremony...
Go team bridal party! (Thanks to the ladies for being troupers while walking through this hole-ridden/boobytrapped terrain in mega heels)
Some sweet portraits after the ceremony...
A whole flock of these fellas passed by during the reception...I tried to play it cool while all the while I wanted to squeal like a kid at a petting zoo
Orbie is the king of badass cigar shots. Likewise, I am the queen of holding-the-flash-behind-the-groom-while-I-get-soaked-by-the-fountain-behind-him shots.
Mkike & Marva: a MILLION thank you's for having us be your photographers! It was such a pleasure...we can't even begin to say! We hope you had a fantastic, relaxing honeymoon, and we can't wait for you to see the rest of your wedding images!
