This blog post with Deanna and Alex’s wedding photos was originally posted 6/3/14, but through years of growth and change it was a bit lost in the archives, and the photos were no longer displaying. Today I’m bringing it back!
Isn’t it awesome when you have clients that become friends?! I loved Deanna and Alex’s Winter Park Resort wedding this past January! Since then I’ve been enjoying staying in touch with Deanna via Facebook and seeing how their lives as newlyweds start off with a bang!
First of all, their wedding was on a GORGEOUS winter day. You could not ask for better! Winter Park Resort is an amazing wedding venue and their wedding coordinator, Emily, was such a pleasure to work with. They run a pretty organized and tight ship behind the scenes. I also got to work with Weddings by Jamie Flower – my favorite wedding planner on earth! If you saw yesterday’s blog post that was her baby shower! That’s why it was definitely a wedding surrounded by friends.
Deanna had this absolutely gorgeous dress, one of my favorites of the season! We all had to ride up the mountain in the snow cat. You know this was a highlight of my entire Winter! Then I jumped in photographing Deanna’s awesome details. Her bouquet and cake were absolutely insanely amazing! Seriously, every vendor for this wedding was amazing to work with. Even though things ran a tad late (as all weddings do) we had time to watch the gorgeous sunset from the Sunspot Lodge at the top of the mountain. The evening was filled with a ceremony that made me cry (I love the way Deanna was laughing in the photo below). The dances, DJ, and food were all lovely too!
I have to admit the scariest part of the day was the end of the day. Now, weddings aren’t usually scary. However, when you are a wedding photographer who is afraid of heights riding down in the pitch black in a gondola down the mountain it’s a tad scary. The only light I could see was the blinking light on the walkie-talkie hanging from the ceiling in my teeny swaying gondola. Don’t worry guys, I survived!
Deanna and Alex’s wedding was so amazing. I want to do more winter weddings in Colorado and Denver. They are so fun, different and I love the snow (even if I’m the world’s worst skier).
Oh and hey look! Deanna and Alex are featured all over Winter Park’s website!
