Lisa O'Dwyer is a genius behind the lens. That's a fact we've known for awhile now. And when she gets to shoot a couple as gorgeous as this one during their equally gorgeous wedding planned by Events 306, I start counting my lucky stars. Layer in the ridiculously stunning florals from A FLorae, and I'm pretty sure this is just as good as it gets. See even more in the VAULT.

From The Bride...Chris and Ashley met during their senior year of college at Denison University, and after moving around for a couple of years, the two settled in Fort Collins, Colorado when Chris was stationed at F.E. Warren Air Force base. Chris proposed soon thereafter while they were vacationing at Walt Disney World, surrounded by family.

Later, while visiting Rocky Mountain National Park in fall, the newly engaged couple fell in love with the cozy feel of the town. As an amateur horror-movie buff, Chris was enthralled with The Stanley Hotel (it is where Stephen King wrote The Shining), so the couple decided that the hotel’s historic elegance and haunted allure was the perfect venue at which to tie the knot.

Keeping in mind that the majority of their guests were flying in from across the country, Chris and Ashley wanted to create an intimate and inviting celebration, focusing on their guests. By adding family-style seating during dinner, custom-blended wine sent to their guests’ Stanley hotel rooms and a ring warming during the ceremony, they accomplished just that. With the expert eye of Brittany Pritchard of Events 306, the affair was one of graceful elegance and understated romance.
