FACT: Most years by mid-July I'm dreaming of crisp fall days. Leather boots, the glorious blanket/coffee/book combo, holiday planning and soup in the crock pot are the things my dreams are made of.
ANOTHER FACT: My favorite color is white. It's the color of my walls, my favorite clothes and most everything else. As a Colorado wedding planner, I really love designs with lots of white, and I always, always tend toward neutral and simple elements.
So, when Ashley of Ashley Kidder Photography asked me to be a part of a bold, colorful summer elopement at Piney River Ranch in Vail, Colorado, I felt slightly out of my fall-loving-white-loving comfort zone but up for the challenge.
Our real couple, Galan and Penelope, are city-lovin' from the heart of Denver, Colorado. We staged their getaway at Denver's Union Station and made the trip up to Piney River Ranch for their mountain I Dos.
An amazing team of vendors caught the vision and helped this shoot come to life: Ashley Kidder Photography, MJM Designs, Astonishing Cakes, Knotty Tie Co., Weddington Way, Sweet Zion Paperie, Cassandra Garza Hair and Makeup and sb borrowed.
Looking at these photos (recently featured on Rocky Mountain Bride), I seriously think they make me fall in love with the season that I've long wished away - the colors, the vibrancy. Totally carefree! Honestly, I love these photos so much and I hope you do, too.
