Being welcomed into a world that I had only read about was absolutely humbling. The Indian culture is so rich with color and tradition and I felt as though I was pulling back the curtains and experiencing something new every minute. It kept me on my toes and had me excited about what would come next. I am so honored that I was able to be a small part of their traditions and couldn’t ask for a sweeter couple to share my first Indian wedding with. If I could travel and visit a new part of the world every week (you know cause that’s super practical), I would. I love learning about different customs, traditions, symbols, cultures. I could spend endless hours in museums learning about the differences in weddings alone. Thank you Rohit & Gouri for sharing in your amazing week, and placing so much trust in me. Your family and connections to each other were so apparent. Coming from a big family myself it was so beautiful to see how much love surrounded you all throughout the week.

When Carl and Janet decided they were going to get married they had something smaller in mind. When they approached Carl’s daughter Brie and told her the good news and that they wanted to get married on top of Breckenridge with just a few people in mind she was really disappointed as she wanted to have a dinner party. Oh the things we do for our kids. With Carl having a large family and everyone wanting to celebrate, they decided to plan a wedding for August! Such a gorgeous time of the year in the Mountains. Everything is blooming and it is still warm enough! Carl & Janet are from Breckenridge so as locals they wanted to celebrate somewhere local. Carl is a ski instructor and has been at Breckenridge for about 30 years so they wanted to get married up on the mountain! I loved that Janet decided not to do a white dress because the pops of Blue were absolutely stunning. It had been pouring rain all week and totally opened up for their wedding and only sprinkled for a bit during the reception just enough to give us a rainbow. A perfect day. Everyone knows I am all about connection and these two have so much of it for each other. Congratulations beautiful people! It was such a lovely day and I enjoyed working with you so much!

Often times I don’t get to meet my clients before they book me. I tend to attract a lot of out of state couples coming here to get married in our gorgeous mountains. These two fabulous people are from San Fransisco and Stephanie’s dad lives in Steamboat. So this was the first time I met these guys. A gorgeous day in the mountains, no coat required. Spring time in the rockies at is best. I can usually get a pretty good idea over the phone or Skype how my clients will be but I am always a little nervous. Since specializing that has subsided a bit. I just want my couples to be as good of a fit for me as I am for them. These guys are absolute perfection. So incredibly comfortable with each other, loving, playful. The dancing on top of the mountain was their idea, although I may steal it in the future. Their laughter is infectious and their smiles too. I cannot wait for their wedding at the Catamount Club in Steamboat in September!
