lindsay + chad engagement session

This adorable engagement session is definitely one to note ūüôā

Lindsay and Chad have been dating for over 8 years and are finally tying the knot this summer.

I love how they did a winter engagement shoot for a summer wedding – they’re definitely getting the best of both worlds in Colorado with their photos.
Their creativity and pure bliss in the photos is truly darling, and their excitement is incredibly contagious.

Congratulations, Lindsay and Chad!

{But seriously, how cute are they?!}

styled shoot at cordillera

Frosted trees. White snow. Colorado’s natural beauty.
There’s definitely something to be said about love in the Rocky Mountains…

This styled shoot at The Lodge and Spa at Cordillera¬†from fun and fabulous Colorado Wedding Photographers, Chris and Adrienne Scott Photography, will definitely have you feelin’ the love.

From Sarah, the stylist and coordinator of the shoot …¬†My inspiration came from my pink rose silk scarf that kept me warm (during a visit to starbucks on a cold Colorado day) and a pinecone I found in my front yard. Though they are two different textures, colors, and tangible objects, I wanted to see the two come together in an elegant fashion. Because I live in Colorado, I wanted to take advantage of a mountain vendor [The Lodge and Spa at Cordillera] that allowed me to use my creativity and bring my idea to life.¬†The overall look that I was going for was soft elegance meets the mountains. I was risking a lot due to the changing Colorado weather, but it turned out beautiful and the models were fantastic – despite the inch of snow that fell the night before!

This was me and my hubby’s very first styled shoot {I mean, who wouldn’t want to wear a wedding dress again?!}
What a great, fun and freezing experience it was!¬†Enjoy ūüôā

lisa + drew

Colorado weather is unlike any other. The saying goes:
‘If you don‚Äôt like the weather, wait 10 minutes and it will change.’

But for their wedding on September 24, 2011, Lisa and Drew couldn’t have asked for a more perfect day at the Ritz-Carlton, Bachelor Gulch in the Rocky Mountains. Warm, sunny and surrounded by the amazing colors of fall – what else could a bride ask for?

In the bride’s words: The best part about the entire day was completely out of our control! The weather was magnificent, and the colors of the trees were unforgettable. We were so lucky!

For her mountain elegance themed wedding, Lisa was inspired by the rustic lodge at the Ritz Carlton, the outdoors, wood features and the forest animals.

In the bride’s words:¬†I knew I wanted to have my wedding during fall and in the mountains.¬†¬†After visiting Bachelor Gulch, it was so easy to say yes!¬†¬†The Ritz felt warm, cozy and like I was right at home.

We are so love with the elegant simplicity and romantic details of this mountain wedding. Absolutely stunning!
Congratulations to the beautiful couple!

From the bride: I wanted to keep things simple, detailed and elegant.
