A casual Colorado wedding meets chic speakeasy party

We really wanted a casual, foodie, boozy wedding. We wanted good food and for our guests to have a chill but fun time. My dad officiated our wedding which was so incredibly special. Both of our families are super supportive and embraced our not quite traditional queer wedding. My sister in-law hand made our rings for us and we had a ring warming ceremony. Each of the guests passed the rings around and put their hopes and wishes for us into them.

Don't miss the black gown and ski lift ride at this crisp winter elopement

Brynn and Stephen traveled from Houston, TX to Winter Park, CO to elope on a mountaintop. It was about 15 degrees on the top of the mountain and windy! But it was clear that they were feeling no pain in the frigid temps based on their laughs. They had an intimate ceremony overlooking the mountains after a ride up on the ski lift. After they made it official, they ran inside to warm up and cut some cake. Just wait until you see Brynn's amazing black gown and Stephen's cowboy details…

A rustic zodiac inspiration shoot in the foothills of Colorado (with a surprise vintage VW!)

This zodiac inspiration shoot was driven by constellation imagery with purples, gold, and a touch of galactic pink. Geometric and star shapes were used throughout, from the bride's hairpieces, to the geometric wedding arch, to the table decorations, and geode cake. Don't miss the bride's loose bouquet of wildflowers and sage and the surprise gold vintage Volkswagen that happened upon the scene without any planning!
