Telluride, Colorado is quickly becoming one of our favorite spots to shoot weddings, and you’ll quickly see why. Not only is it GORGEOUS, but the couples that choose Telluride as their wedding location always happen to be some of our favs, and Laura + Joe are no exception. Laura + Joe had a dual-part wedding, and we loved their creativity in making sure they were honoring everything that is important to them. For these two, their Catholic faith is extremely important, but so are the mountains and getting married outside….so they just did both! A few days before their “big” wedding, Laura + Joe had a small, intimate Catholic service in Beaver Creek, and Laura wore her mother’s GORGEOUS wedding dress (amazing!) Our Colorado photographer, Talia, shot some gorgeous photos of these two at Beaver Creek Chapel – such a sweet time for this couple.
Next, a week later, our very own Anna flew out to meet Laura + Joe for their larger wedding at Gorrono Ranch in Telluride. L+J met at the University of Denver, and after five years of a few missed connections in college and global long-distance, these two finally made it official in front of their family and friends in the most beautiful setting we could imagine. They wanted their wedding to feel relaxed and easy-going, and that’s EXACTLY the vibe they achieved. Let’s just say this wedding is also the perfect example of how rain on your wedding day can be a beautiful thing – not only are some of these rain photos going on our all-time-favorites, the skies cleared up JUST in time to make for the most stunning mountain views….and then there was the rainbow. Y’all – seriously. You are going to die!!! Congrats, Laura + Joe! We love you guys, and are so honored to have been a part of your big day! xoxo.
