Have your wedding up in the mountains of Colorado?! Yes Please!!! The goal of your wedding, besides marrying your best friend, should be to make it personal to you! There’s no right or wrong decision when it comes to how or where you get married whether thats in a barn, in your parents back yard, at the courthouse, at one of the many gorgeous wedding venues we serve, or a perfect destination in the mountains of Colorado! Making your wedding unique to you is what makes it memorable! Tanner & Montana took this advice to the max! Decided to forgo the typical rustic wedding venue in Oklahoma, they ventured to Maroon Bells in Colorado! Not wanting to be left behind in the August heat 🥵, we journeyed with them to capture their perfect day!
With an elevation of almost 15,000 feet, the pair of mountain peaks known as the Maroon Bells was the gorgeous backdrop for Tanner & Montana’s Wedding!
We had the pleasure of meeting Tanner & Montana over a year ago & immediately fell in love with them! The way they smiled at each other & talked about each other, we could tell they were an amazing couple! During their engagement session, we watched with joy as they smiled, flirted, kissed, & just enjoyed their time together! By the time we were done, we were almost begging them to hire us to capture their wedding! Once we found out they were planning a destination wedding in the Colorado Mountains, we packed our bags! We LOVE weddings & our couples, but we also love when a couple does special things to make the day their own! Tanner & Montana cherish memories as much as we do so they crafter their whole day around making sure we were able to capture every little part!
As Tanner got ready in a separate Condo from Montana, he smiled as we talked about how excited he was & he meticulously went over every detail to make sure she was happy & the day was perfect! Montana couldn’t wait to get dressed as she patiently waited for her dad to pick her up for the 30 minute drive up the mountain for their Maroon Bells Wedding! Close friends & family made the trip to share & witness Tanner & Montana’s day where they started their forever after in front of the most breathtaking view we have ever seen!
Once the ceremony was done & they were man & wife, we had the fun of hiking all over the mountain to capture their gorgeous photos! They didn’t seem to mind the many tourists stopping to congratulate them as well as snap a pic of them as they started this journey through life.
Unlike “regular weddings” where we go right into the reception after taking couple’s portraits, Tanner & Montana’s Maroon Bells Wedding was all their own! Having booked the incredible Mix6 restaurant for that evening, coming down from the mountain meant they had a few hours to rest before rejoining family & friends in their celebration.
Toasts, congratulations, & prayers were offered to the new couple as everyone gathered around them to wish them well.
