Aspen Wedding Photographers | Maroon Bells Wedding | Jesse + Sara

April 19, 2023

 I knew I loved Jesse + Sarah just from the emails we exchanged before I got to meet them on their wedding day. They are so much fun to be around and their love is infections. 

Jesse + Sara traveled to Maroon Bells for their Aspen Wedding day. Maroon Bells is known as “one of the most photographed locations in Colorado,” and in all the years and weddings that I’ve worked there, I’m always quickly reminded why. The majestic snow-dusted mountains, crystalline lakes, and in the fall – golden aspen trees make it one of the most sensational places for a Colorado wedding.   

On the day of the wedding, Jesse looked dapper in the Florida State University shirt he wore under his jacket, while Sara was stunning in her lace dress- the gloves she wore were made using lace from her mothers wedding dress. While getting ready, Sara’s dad lovingly helped her put on her cowboy boots, boots that belonged to her late uncle . 

During their first look, Jesse + Sarah met in a field shimmering with golden grasses and aspens. Jesse presented Sara with a beautiful wedding gift—a beautiful opal and diamond necklace. 

For the ceremony, guests dressed in an array of fall colors–reds, greens, oranges, and yellows—which beautifully offsetting the autumnal backdrop. Mountains soared and the lake glittered as three fairylike flower girls and 2 handsome ring bearers lead the way down the forest path. The couple exchanged heartfelt vows under the loving presence of their friends and family. 

 I truly got a glimpse into what a fun and adventurous couple Sara and Jesse are during their couples’ portraits. We literally went over the fields, through the woods, and down the by the creek. They kept me giggling the whole time with their antics–piggyback rides, dance moves, Jesse throwing Sara over his shoulder…We were even fortunate enough to spot a moose!

Cocktail hour took place just off of the Grand Ballroom at Viceroy which features a gorgeous terrace where cozy fire pits kept guests warm. The party was moved into the ballroom once the sunset, the most heartwarming toasts were given by friends and family and were followed by a super fun dance party with glow sticks to go around. 

Sara + Jesse’s day was so much fun, and I feel so lucky to have been invited to capture their Maroon Bells wedding!

BEHIND THE LENS

MEET BRittany

Photographer, mother, eternal optimist - most inspired by music, the great outdoors, and you.

I’m Brittany! mother to a couple blue-eyed, wicked smart kids– tattoo haver – red lipstick wearer – total moment junkie – married to the actual best person on planet earth – whatever the opposite of a green-thumb is *r.i.p every plant i’ve ever owned*
eternally optimistic. perpetually cold. hair + makeup artist. still-storyteller. beholder of beauty. colorado native with a heart that is set on fire in the great outdoors.
lover and documentarian of life + love (and everything that comes along with it)

Tell-tale signs that I may be a good fit for you and your love: 
because you’re a night-owl and a morning person, because you enjoy the quiet sound of snow falling. because you find inspiration in just about anything. because you like your music loud and your hugs long. because you’re a big fan of the written word. because it’s never too late for things like “i love you’s” and a piece (or 3) of dark chocolate. because kitchens and living rooms make for the best dancing. because honesty. because flowers for no reason at all. because love is big and wonderful and important and the most beautiful choice you get to make. because kindness.because netflix marathons. because tears from hard laughter.because hard work feels good. because friends who feel like family. because spontaneous road trips to anywhere. because gifs and baby animals. 
because viewing my work makes you feel almost as happy as I feel creating it.
and because to me, telling your unique story, capturing your day, would be an honor.
If your love is BIG fat loud messy, imperfectly perfect, hilarious, dreamy, mountain moving, almost annoying its so good, kind of love. You get me and I get you. Love is a big deal and documenting all the big and seemingly tiny moments, is what I do best. 

Whether you’re celebrating with a big affair or keeping it intimate with an elopement, capturing YOUR kind of love is what I strive for.
