Absolutely everything about working with Rick and Tracy was fun. It's pretty clear that these two find joy in everyday adventures and their elopement wedding in the mountains of Colorado was no exception.
From the moment I finally got to meet them in person as they stepped out of their car at Sapphire Point Overlook, I knew shooting this couple's wedding was going to be pure joy from start to finish.
I was right! The evening was filled with laughter, fun and witty banter--oh yes, and the occasional chipmunk guest--all bathed in a backdrop of glorious Colorado Rocky Mountain pre-sunset light.
Just about as perfect as a photographer could ask for! Oh yes! One more thing. After some initial direction, these two turned out to be naturals in front of the camera. Elopement photographer Nirvana!
Tracy's bouquet was a stunning mixture of succulents and peach-colored peonies designed by my favorite Breckenridge wedding florist - Petal and Bean.
We weren't the only ones that loved the bouquet. The resident chipmunks went nuts for it!
When I told the animal-loving Tracy about the abundant chipmunk wildlife at Sapphire Point, she immediately giggled and set herself on a quest to make sure she got as much chipmunk time in as possible. She wasn't disappointed.
There is nothing more romantic, in my humble opinion, then a couple in love sharing an intimate dance on the side of a mountain...
Tracy and Rick (literally!) walked off into the sunset after their Colorado mountain elopement to go back to their condo for homemade pizza! Two people in love--not wanting to share their joy with anyone else--at least for the moment.
