Colorado Destination Wedding,Grand Lake Wedding Photographer | Grand Lake Wedding, Kimmy + Jason

April 6, 2016

SO, here I am, six months after this wedding. Still struggling to pick up jaw up off the ground.

I should just probably just start with yelling from the rooftops how much I love these two.

And it all started with a mega fail Facetime call. Ya see,  Kimmy and Jason live in Texas but were in the stages of planning their Colorado destination wedding in Grand Lake, before we even got to this phone call, I was already excited because… have you ever been to Grand Lake in the fall? Its freaking MAGICAL.

but…back to the call. technology was being real special and wouldnt let us Facetime for reasons that I still dont understand. But the entire conversation during this er…technical difficulty was what sold me on them. In that 10 minute period of time of us just cracking up and pushing buttons, I could just tell that we were going to be a great fit. Which if you know me and the way I run my business (and my life), it’s imperative to me that we have a great connection over anything else…but that’s a topic for a whooole other blog post.

A lot of life happens in the months leading up to a wedding, and they kept me updated with just about everything! When Kim found her dream dress, while making detail decisions, stories about their expected guests, the incredible story of how the met and fell in love, and unfortunately the untimely passing of Jason’s father, Ray just a few months prior. You don’t start your perfect wedding planning thinking that you will soon suffer a loss like this, but everyone pulled together and found ways to honor his memory, and though bittersweet, it was a truly perfect day. More beautiful than I even think they were expecting.

Kim, Jason and a handful of their favorite people gathered on the lakeside property that Kim spent her summers growing up, and in the same spot that they exchanged their first “I love you’s” in the begninning of their relationship, they vowed to spend the rest of forever together.

…I know right?!

This day blew my mind and heart all to pieces. I witness extraordinary love often, I’m lucky to have couples that love fiercely and intentionally, and these two, have all that and a little something extra.

I drove home that night feeling immensely grateful…and just so damn lucky to be the one to document this day for them. Like one of those feelings where you just want to call everyone you love and make sure they know it…except I didn’t have any cell service driving through Rocky Mountain National Park.

…and ok fine! yes, I cried.  you would’ve too.
