In the days leading up to Ryan + Jill's wedding, snow was falling and anxiety was climbing. This is the biggest gamble when having an outdoor wedding in Colorado - that we can have a freak snowstorm at the end of May ... or June, or July! But rest assured, the phrase is solid. "If you don't like the weather in Colorado, wait 5 minutes."  And that we did. The day of their wedding finally came, and we had a sunny and 60 degree ceremony, with most of the snow melted. 

It was a beautiful ceremony, at Arrowhead Golf Course. Their landscape is breathtaking, and the couple is stunning. The ingredients to an amazing wedding day. The outdoor space, overlooking the red rocks, adorned with crisp white chairs for the guests to enjoy the ceremony. Jill and Ryan picked an amazing location. 

With no first look scheduled, the couple made their way around the venue in rotations, as to not get a peek of eachother before the moment when Jill walks down the aisle. Mission accomplished.

These two families that came together on that day in May are two gems. They both left me feeling like I became an honorary member of their families, and I was very lucky to be a part of this small moment in their lives.  I cant speak more highly of the families, the bride and groom, the wedding party and the guests. They are full of love and laughs and I know their future is going to be bright. I can't wait to see how Jill and Ryan's life unfolds, now as one. Congratulations!
