Lyons Wedding Photographer | Lyons Riverbend Wedding | Sara + Galym

January 13, 2017

Sara and Galym are two of the most authentically kind human beings on the face of the Earth. I was able to get to know them on a trip out to Oregon to do their engagement photos (view their Portland Engagement session here) and spending time hiking through waist deep water and hearing all about how they met at Stanford and their big plans for their upcoming wedding. The Riverbend in Lyons,Co was an absolutely perfect venue for this sweet July Colorado destination wedding.

Sara got ready in a glamping tent with the sound of the river rushing by as her soundtrack.  Sara’s family is from Morroco and Galym’s family from Kazakhstan, and they had dear friends and family from every corner of the World, it was truly beautiful to watch traditions from different cultures come to life through out the day. Sara is the queen of DIY and all the details, signs and trinkets/favors are all vintage or made by hand! During their ceremony in addition to having an amazing guitartist play, they had their brothers each give a speech, while all of them were very sentimental, they were also HILARIOUS. We were cracking up the whole time. These two planned everything perfectly for an romantic and intimate night, dinner and charcuterie by Greens Point Catering while watching a full life highlight reel of the bride and groom that their families put together, complete with hilarious stories of them growing up and heartfelt toasts.

A summer night staple, ice cream truck, Petey Bird serving up the sweet stuff during mingling and dancing underneath the stars.

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.
