Nothing is as perfect as a sunny wedding day atop Vail Mountain. Amidst a very rainy June in Colorado, we were incredibly blessed by a bluebird day as two families (and friend families) gathered to celebrate Aleah + Jordan. And not just any two families — these folks were the most loving, fun bunch. I was immediately welcomed into their small gathering and felt right at home. As most of the family battled it out on the karaoke machine after the rehearsal dinner, I was invited to sneakily share a glass of milk and a few Oreos with the groom’s father and sister. From that moment, I knew I was in for a good weekend. These people were already catering to my sweet tooth!
Aleah + Jordan are such a beautiful couple. Their relationship is rooted in God and prayer, and their wedding day felt appropriately spiritual — perched atop a mountain, among the heavens. Their ceremony was heartfelt and touching. (I may have been caught crying in the back of the amphitheater, but that’s no surprise because I just love these two so much!) They are already expecting their first daughter, so their lives are bound to be full and rich.
Where the photos from Charles Townsend Photography stop, the celebration continued at a private residence in Copper, where guests enjoyed incredibly unique and yummy food stations (I’m still dreaming of the Ramen bar), great music, home brews, a fun camper-turned-photo booth, and an ice cream truck! Lots of fun was had and one big lesson was learned. Did you know that placing fancy paper straws in cute mini bottles of champagne during toasts causes the champagne to basically explode all over you? I’m going to need to brush up on my physics (or chemistry?), but I feel like we need to get this cute Pinterest trend on Mythbusters.
Thanks so much to Aleah + Jordan for having me be a part of your day and for giving me the opportunity to celebrate with your closest loved ones. It was a joy and I can’t wait to see what the future has in store for you and your growing family!
