Winter Beaver Creek Wedding :: Jennifer & Benjamin :: Beaver Creek, Colorado

By all rights, this should’ve been a wedding on bicycles, as J+B (and many of their guests) are world class competitive cyclists. The room had a certain Olympic level air to it. It was fun marathon day in three parts — first, ceremony at Beaver Creek Chapel in the morning light — then, a brunch ski down on the slopes of Beaver Creek — finishing off with high altitude dancing during a Park Hyatt reception.

After a traditional morning wedding, we jumped on skis and a grabbed a 100-400 ultra telephoto zoom to get close to the couple … even when I was in the next chair away, lol. The sun was bright and added to the euphoric optimism. Everyone else on the mountain LOVES to see a bride on skis. They hoop and holler, even at a buttoned-down mountain like Beaver Creek. Brings out the crazy romantic in them I guess. Areas around the skating ring in the heart of Beaver Creek are prime for bride + groom photos at dusk. We did a tour stopping at some favorite spots, on our way to meet up with the gang back at the Hyatt. Bride and groom got their share of ribbings from fellow athletes who had competed with them around the globe. That sort of competition and adventure makes for some great stories — most of them PG rated. The dancing lasted late into the night. Howling at the moon and all that. Just a walk over to the elevator and up a few floors before passing out.

I’m happy to ski along with any wedding couples who want a slope side memory of their day. A little sun and laughs and it’s all good. If you’re planning a Beaver Creek wedding, I’d be honored to document it.

Archers Poudre River Resort Wedding | Andrea + Robert

They had been married a long time. Not officially, but A + R had been a spiritual pair for many years and most people who met them assumed they were married. This glorious Archers Poudre River Resort wedding was a celebration of their two families and their colorful cast of friends they both had accumulated on the highways of life. Andrea’s family were the gracious hosts and Robert’s family provided the music.

With a little help from our friends

Robert’s a musician so his posse provided sound, ceremony music and a ton of laughs. Andrea comes from the event world, so her besties contributed event management and officiated the emotional waterside ceremony. After a BBQ served on bamboo plates and serving ware, the generations of Robert’s family blew everyone away with dusk lit cover of The Grateful Dead’s “Ripple.” I got a little excited and get everyone to join  along with the humming part at the end.

Fire on the mountain

This day was magical for three reasons. First, no car stress as the whole event from getting ready to the last dance was within quick walking distance. Second, the couple deligated a lot of last minute decision-making and was thrilled at the ownership their friends and family showed and crafting their own respective parts. Third, I didn’t have to photograph anyone dancing to the Cuban Slide or Love Shack. Y’know, it’s the little things.
