There is a pretty venue tucked away here in Colorado in Silverthorne. We love to photograph weddings up there and this particular wedding couldn’t of been more fun! The Venue is somewhat hidden by an outside shopping center but once you enter there is a giant beautiful room with tall ceilings, wooden floors and some red curtains. Just around the back side is stream with a black rod iron bridge, a small area to sit outside with a fireplace and huge field overlooking the mountains.
They set up their wedding ceremony facing the mountains with the white wooden chairs and more rose petals than I’ve ever seen lining the aisle. The ceremony was extra special for them because they had Nick’s sister perform it and luckily she made it through just before the rain came.
I loved how thought out this wedding was down to every detail! My favorite part were the many different sneakers they had everywhere full of flowers! Because Nick & Andie share a passion for running, her mom spent months collecting these shoes from everyone they knew and after filling them with babies breath, giant yellow sunflowers, carnations and other green plants they hung them by the shoe laces everywhere!
The shot with all the guys and the dramatic sky got Andy an Accolade of Excellence in Las Vegas you can read more about the 12 awards we got from WPPI here

All of their tables were covered in a dark brown linens and each centerpiece was a small cake for the table share. The cocktail tables had clear vases with blue windmills and small brown/blue cowbells. They also incorporated many of their running tags from marathons on each table as the table numbers. It was fun to see how many races they had each participated in and many together!
Andie even wore a pair of white tennis shoes underneath her beautiful white wedding gown and lacy veil!
The Groom and his groomsmen wore light gray suits with brown vests and blue ties. The were so sharp and matched the cute brown bridesmaid dresses with bouquets of yellow sunflowers and blue ribbon.
Although it rained after their wedding, they were good sports and with an umbrella in hand we wondered around doing pictures. These guys are such an amazing couple and we were so lucky to photograph their wedding!
Beautiful room they held their reception in made for some awesome wide angle pictures and it was so fun to see all of the little traditions they shared with their friends and family! We even did a fun photo wall where their guests played around with the props and took pictures throughout the night!

Love the weather changing and looking forward to the many weddings we have this year.
I wanted to share an image we took coming back from a wedding this fall in Ouray Colorado. I may have to get this one printed for the house. I love this quote and wanted to share it since it reminds me of why I was able to get this image.
