Nicole + Ryan - Crested Butte, CO- 7.22.17

Where do I begin..This wedding was one for the books. The day had me in tears more than once; from laughter, joy, and from the pure love that Nicole and Ryan clearly had for one another. I was lucky enough to shoot for Amelia Ann Photography on this day, and it was my first time visiting heaven on earth, aka Crested Butte, Colorado. The hills were alive with (the sound of music, jk) wildflowers, wildflowers, and more wildflowers, and my jaw dropped around every mountain pass as stunning scenery continued to unfold in every direction. While Nicole got ready in the town of Crested Butte, I headed to the campsite where Ryan was getting ready. The guys had been camping for a week, riding bikes on the famous Rocky Mountain trails. It was here that Nicole and Ryan took their first camping trip together years back, so they knew this would be the place they would get married. After a bike ride and a camp shower, Ryan and his best friend hopped on his tandem bike and rode from the campsite to the first look spot (I could barely keep up with them in the car!). When Nicole came out to meet him, her excitement was so infectious that this is when the tears began. She was the most joyous, fun, stunning bride; from frolicking with her bridesmaids in the wildflowers, to shotgunning beers on the road, to gushing about her soon-to-be husband-pure love! The happiness and love these two had for one another was palpable, and I will let the photos do the rest of the talking. Congrats to these two adventurous souls; I will always remember this incredible day!
