Whimsical Dr. Seuss Inspired Intimate Vail Wedding

Liz & Stephan Say I Do

Nestled amidst the majestic mountains, this April wedding was nothing short of extraordinary. Picture-perfect weather painted the day with warm hues and clear skies, creating a backdrop that seemed straight out of a dream. But what truly made this day magical was the couple themselves. Their love radiated in every smile, every glance exchanged, making it evident that they were meant to be.

Drawing inspiration from the whimsical world of Dr. Seuss, the bride Liz, infused her special day with playful charm and boundless creativity. From the vibrant rugs to the enchanting floral arrangements and the meticulously crafted hand-pressed flower signs, every detail spoke volumes about their unique love story. It was a celebration that embraced individuality, creativity, and the joy of being truly alive.

A heartfelt shoutout is in order for the incredible vendors who helped turn this vision into reality. Manor Vail Lodge provided the perfect setting for their mountainous adventure, while Vintage Magnolia brought floral dreams to life. Dang Sweets crafted a cake that was both delicious and visually stunning, adding a sweet touch to the festivities.

Special thanks to Kellsey Rosentraub for flawlessly orchestrating the day and to Anna from Shear Color Salon for ensuring the bride’s hair was as radiant as her smile. And let’s not forget the groom, who looked dashing in stylish attire from Banana Republic. The bride’s dress, a masterpiece from BHLDN, epitomized elegance and grace.

In the end, this April wedding in the mountains wasn’t just about saying “I do.” It was a testament to the power of love, creativity, and the joy of embracing what makes us truly unique. Here’s to the happy couple, whose love story continues to inspire and delight us all.

Intimacy and adventure is what I am all about. I absolutely love families who are just fun, who are real and let it fly.  I want to see you!  They don’t mind if they get their dress dirty. They may be down for a short hike and are not afraid of getting in the water at the end of your session, you are my people. They don’t mind if things don’t go perfectly and that is just perfect. 

The best parts of life are the parts that surprise us, and the best photos are usually the ones we didn’t know were coming.
