Vanessa and Sean Vail/Beaver Creek wedding film

A beautiful day in Beaver Creek spent with their closest friends and family.  Stories of childhood, stories of distance, stories of perseverance.  These two have a once in a lifetime love and I was honored to witness it all.  Congratulations, Vanessa and Sean!

May the road rise up to meet you.
May the wind always be at your back.
May the sun shine warm upon your face,
and rains fall soft upon your fields.
And until we meet again,
May God hold you in the palm of His hand.

An Aspen Elopement

This intimate elopement between Natalie and Lincoln will live on in my heart forever.  Young, in love and confident in the direction of their dreams.  It was perfection in every sense of the word and I wish them all the happiness in the world.  Much love to you both.

Stonewood Vintage Rentals and Design

I love the shoots where I get to showcase my friends and their insane talents.  This was one of those days, however, that started out STUNNING, and ended in a tsunami with all of us running for cover.  But broken glass, rain soaked linens and some imperfect cakes weren't going to get in our way.  We powered through until we just couldn't power any more.  And the results were stunning.  If you have never heard of Stonewood Vintage Rentals and Design, get them on your radar.  She is one of the most brilliant stylists I've seen and has a warehouse of incredible goods to choose from.  Thank you Cat Mayer Studio, GJ Cake Lady and 3 Leaf Floral for making this fun little session spectacular!

Nicole and Ryan

If days get better than this, I would love to see it!  Nicole and Ryan spent the weekend in Vail/Beaver Creek with a couple dozen of their closest.  It was intimate, warm (except for our fingers and toes) and STUNNING!! There were too many favorite moments to mention, but to say that I felt blessed to be a part of it, would be an understatement.  There is nothing quite like a Beaver Creek wedding.

Kendra and Adam

Stunning backdrops of Grand Junction, CO were the perfect location to celebrate the nuptials of Kendra and Adam.  Between the romantic peach orchards in Palisade and the sophisticated vineyards of Two Rivers Winery, this wedding had it all.

Luxe in Love

Featured on Wedding Chicks for deep and luxurious wedding inspiration, this collaboration knocked it out of the park.  With all of the filmy, light and airy weddings out there, we knew that there was the sophisticated bride with luxe style.  Look no further than this deliciously, inspirational shoot.  #luxeinlove

Britney and Clint

From the tears of joy, to raucous reception that followed, this Indiana wedding ranks as one of my all time favorites.  Don't miss the groom's flash mob with a little help from his friends.  Or should I say, her friends, the Indiana Pacemates.  Incredible!

A Wonderful Mess

I have no words.  These two beautiful women sum it up perfectly.  I have never seen a wonderful mess like this, nor will I ever.  This short film was created for Denise Demarchis to share during her speech at the Smart Girls, Brilliant women luncheon in Fort Wayne, IN.  She was a smashing success!

Sarah and Ken

Sarah and Ken.  What can I say about this stunning wedding in Vail, CO?  This couple was so wild about each other that I see a lifetime of happiness.  They will fight for the fairytale.  

Lucky for me, I was surrounded by an incredible team of vendors that made this stunner that much more enjoyable.

Colorado Fourteeners

There is no place on earth like Colorado and everyone knows it.  I mean, it's glorious!  Every season of the year there is something to celebrate.  Our dear friends, Molly and Eric have hiked EVERY 14er in Colorado and were kind enough to share their wealth of knowledge with us newbies.  With beds of Columbine's as far as the eye could see, we took on Handie's Peak with gusto.  Here is our day in a nutshell.  Enjoy!

Lighthouse friend

If you refer back to my VERY old blog, you will find a plethora of posts and stories referring to the late, great Denise Demarchis.  She was a true soldier for all she knew and a beacon of light in my life that will forever be dimmed.  SHE is the reason I found my passion and my future.  She created opportunities to help me succeed and watch me shine.  Can you imagine if we all did that for the people we love?  The world would be a much brighter place.  Farewell, my dearest friend.  See you soon...
