From Brett Heidebrecht Photography…Lynnie the bride, has one of those calm and contagious smiles that just sets the day off right. She and her bridesmaids prepared at the Sonnenalp and when ceremony time came her bridesmaids shielded her for the walk across the street to the Vail Chapel for their emotional ceremony. One of my favorite moments as a photographer is when the bride and groom recess down the isle just after being pronounced. It is one of the purest moments of the day, forgetting about the camera in the rush of that moment as they walk out as husband and wife gleefully glancing at friends and family. Jared & Lynnie excited the ceremony to an awaiting horse drawn carriage for a lift to the gondola. That ride was a beautiful opportunity during the speed of a wedding day for them to just stop and relish the moments. High up on the mountain their family and friends awaited in an elegantly decorated ballroom. Once they arrived we heard a wonderful and emotionally charged speech by her father. As a father of a little girl it always gets me when I hear dad’s talk about their daughters and their new husband’s on their wedding day. Follow that up with their beautiful first dances under the tent and the party was just getting started to the amazing tunes of the Kory Brunson Band! It was such a beautiful day of celebration and I was honored to record the day as photographer.

From Sherri Innis…The air is thin at 9,350ft above sea-level, but at Piney River Ranch, Vail, CO – the air is full of love.
Casey and Breanna enjoyed their destination wedding weekend at the ranch. Colorado Summers are so raw in their beauty but with that always comes the chance of a shower or two. Casey and Bree took it in stride, chalking a few showers up to ‘good luck!’
The rain and low clouds created such a beautiful pop of colors and the Piney Valley was rich with aromas of nature. Casey and Bree said their heart-felt vows in front of an intimate group of friends and family then danced the night away; never once blinking at the rain drops falling outside.
The rain stopped, as if on cue, just in time for a romantic sparkler send off.

From Rachel Havel… Janice & Jason held their destination wedding in the beautiful mountains of Vail, Colorado. They incorporated Janice’s Korean heritage by holding a second ceremony celebration called a Paebaek. It’s a beautiful time where the parents of the bride and groom speak blessings over the new couple and throw dates and chestnuts to be caught by the newlyweds. This tradition stands for how many boys and girls when they have children. To end the ceremony, the bride rides piggyback on the groom to show his devotion and love for her throughout their marriage together.
The overall wedding was timeless and elegant, with beautiful florals and clean, bright decor. It was such a beautiful celebration of the endearing love that Janice and Jason share.
