The Sawyers

So we weren't even going to do this shoot until tomorrow, but then the weather called for rain so we jumped on it. Good thing too, because we got the best of the fall colors! September in Crested Butte...there's nothing like it.

And it's too bad the kids were having a lousy time. No smiles or anything ;)

Laura and Jordan

Things are slowing down here in Crested Butte, and the leaves are beginning to change. I'm getting close to finishing up wedding season 2010 and what a whirlwind it has been. Full of fun, beauty, rain, sun, surprise and joy.

I spent September 4th with Laura and Jordan, who had pretty much a perfect wedding. Laura spent an incredible amount of time working on the details of her day. My favorite one? Their initials carved in a heart in the bark of an Aspen tree vase. Beautiful, thoughtful, and elegant. Also something worth noting was the speech that Jordan's best man gave. His start to the speech, "Fornication......Foranoccasion like this....!" Then he surprised all of the guests by hiding a photo of Jordan in drag under every chair. Hilarious! He made a pretty, though rather large lady!

Here's the slideshow!

Erica and Justin

This was one totally exceptional wedding! The ceremony was held at Crested Butte Mountain Resort at the top of the Red lady Express chairlift, and the reception was tented outside the newly remodeled Uleys cabin. The weather was perfect, the guests were happy, and there was such attention to detail that I was in H-E-A-V-E-N. Erica chose unusual colors that were fresh and totally worked. Her bridesmaids wore cobalt blue dresses with yellow (really yellow) shoes and the guys wore yellow shirts and blue ties. Erica and Justin added turquoise to the mix and the handmade prayer flags they made tied everything together. The flags adorned the ceremony site with wishes from the guests running up the sides, and their vows were written on the flags above their heads. The ring pillow had prayer flags as well as the table settings at the reception.

Clearly these guys know how to have a good time, since they danced so much, the floor literally came apart. A really, really fun time. Justin and Erica, you guys are awesome!
