There were just a handful of us at this intimate wedding outdoors at Sapphire Point Lookout over the Dillon Reservoir. Chris wore his sunglasses to protect his eyes from the glare of the snow. He looked up waiting for Ashley his new bride to be to come down the aisle.
They picked that spot partially because they wanted an easy trail for Ashley’s dad to be able to walk down and also for the beauty of the trail and the prospect of snow. Ashley’s dad walked down the aisle/snowy trail with his cane holding on to his daughter’s arm. They walked slowly being careful to avoid the icy patches and talked with each other along the way.
Chris who was a pretty serious person smiled as he saw Ashley and her dad come into view. They wanted it to be a super snowy day and picked a place high in the mountains where that was likely, but there was no snow storm that day.
The sun shone brightly in the sky and the snow sparkled all around them. Ashley wore a beautiful cloak over her wedding dress with blue highlights that matched Chris’s tie.
As the ceremony continued hikers walked along the trail by us and a few of them stopped to listen to the couple’s vows and the see the end of the ceremony. The hikers clapped and cheered as Ashley and Chris kissed and congratulated them on their new marriage.
It was a lovely day that they were able to share with their most favorite people. I even caught Chris smiling and laughing which seemed to be rare. It was a pleasure to share in the joy of this ceremony with the stunning nature of Colorado as the backdrop. Thanks to Lynette Seelmeyer of Picture This Photography who brought me along to help capture this day for Ashley and Chris.
