Colorado Mountain Wedding :: Holly+Adam in Colorado

destination Feature wedding

 

Who could resist a reception with the Colorado mountains as the backdrop? I couldn’t, nor would I when one of my best friends told me that’s where she was having it.

This girl has come to visit Eliot and I in almost every place we’ve lived (not the UK, yet…*hint, hint* Hol). She has an adventurous spirit, and it makes me so happy to see her with someone who’s ideals match hers perfectly.

I’ve known Holly since we were in high school and she’s always been way cooler than me. She was friends with pretty much everyone, girls and guys, and has always had an infectious personality that people just want to be around. She always brings the party (and the water bottle of vodka). She’s also the type of girl who keeps her head on straight, and doesn’t make emotional decisions. It’s always well thought out and carefully considered.

She told me about Adam when she came to visit us out in China, and just by the way she was talking about him, I could tell he was way different than anyone else. She wasn’t going on and on about the flowers and the hearts, it was more about what plans and goals they had made, and what steps they were taking to achieve them, that I knew things were more serious with Adam. It wasn’t gushing about how she knew she was going to marry this guy (that didn’t even come up), but more an acknowledgment that she’d met a partner who shared the same dreams she did. It was effortless and natural.

The only thing I ever want for my girlfriends is to see them happy in life. Holly has always been happy and I’ve never worried about her. But seeing her with Adam up in Colorado revealed an extra sparkle to a girl I didn’t think could possibly shine anymore.

Here’s a couple highlights from the reception in Colorado.

I’ve love traveling for weddings, and would love to come to yours. If you’re planning a destination wedding, let me know.

Oh Ash, reading this made me tear up. It meant to world to us to have you and your beautiful little family make the journey to Colorado, and it was such an honor to have you capture the weekend on film. Your photos are so beautiful and truly bring out the essence of what I felt throughout the celebration. I am a lucky lady to have such wonderful, talented friends. Miss you all so much! xoxo

Summer Wedding in Stockholm Being able to use my camera and photograph new places and spaces is one of the biggest joys in this profession. Every time I visit a new place, I find these subtle little beauties, and I wish I had my camera on hand.

Pre wedding sessions. Awesome locations. Lovely couple. And funky architecture.Sam and Di are good friends who's wedding we celebrated the night before we left China to move here. A gorgeous Hong Kong wedding. But of course, we took some engagement photos a few months beforehand.This was a little mini-sesh, we got together early one morning and explored the area around our city, Xiamen. Since being in Xiamen, whenever we would walk down to the park near the waterfront, we would go under the overpass with all the vines crawling up it, in a very 'life after people' kind of way. I've always wanted to put a couple in a frame there.

My last wedding of 2011 *sigh*. This day was beautiful from start to finish. It can be risky planning a winter wedding, but when you get the right day, it's absolutely worth it. The riskiest days have the sweetest rewards. Eric and Kathryn have the nicest families and everyone made me feel so welcome. When I first arrived, both Kathryn and her mom started asking me about my own wedding and the plans for that. It's so wonderful to make that personal connection with people.Eric and Kathryn were married at Twenty-Eight Twelve in Valrico, FL. It was a beautiful farmhouse and the perfect setting for their style of wedding. Guest were greeted w ...
