Estes Park, Colorado Wedding Photography

Today's photos are of Natalie + Chris: Colorado Wedding at the Black Canyon Inn, with images courtesy of Mollie Tobias Photography. We are working on adding a select group of mountain towns outside of Summit County and the Vail Valley, as they too need help exposing all the options available. I recently became aware of a network of vendors in the Roaring Fork Valley / Glenwood Springs area that focus on weddings near the Colorado River. Send us a message if you need assistance in that area. We love connecting qualified venues and vendors with couples needing help.

ALBUM STORY

When they first met Chris lived in North Carolina and Natalie had lived in Texas her whole life.

When Chris moved to Virginia, Natalie moved to Virginia as well so that they could get engaged and be married – and eventually Chris did get around to popping the question.

While they were planning the wedding they realized that they had friends and family in Texas, North Carolina, Virginia, and Alaska. So they did the only reasonable thing and got married in Colorado.

I, for one, am glad that they did. The Black Canyon Inn and Twin Owls Steakhouse was the perfect backdrop for their Fall destination wedding. Natalie put a lot of time and effort into the details of her wedding - from the mini chapsticks for guests who weren't accustomed to the dry mountain air to coffee, tea, and hot cocoa favors. Her creativity was rounded out by a great team of vendors who gave her exactly the wedding she had dreamed of.

Justin & Amanda’s mountain wedding at the Black Canyon Inn in Estes Park, Colorado was all about being close to the ones you love. Surrounded by an intimate group of close family and friends, this Nebraska couple exchanged their vows against the breath-taking backdrop of Rocky Mountain National Park. Spend a brief period of time with Justin & Amanda, and you’ll quickly realize the value they place on friends and family. Even though I was an outsider, so to speak, they made sure to make a place for me at their table; I was blown away by their hospitality, and how warmly their family opened up to me during their dinner at the Twin Owls Steakhouse.

The couple fell in love with the rocky mountains several years ago, after a memorable trip to Rocky Mountain National Park. They immediately knew this was the place they wanted to get married; however, during their initial wedding planning a few years ago, Justin fell ill with cancer, and the wedding had to take a back seat to his battle with cancer. Justin pulled through after several hard-fought rounds of treatment, and is now completely cancer-free. Life had thrown this high school sweetheart couple a serious curveball, and yet they triumphed in turning it all around and having the wedding of their dreams in the rocky mountains–even the forest creatures came out for the celebration, as if to say, “Nature’s got your back!”
