The first time we spoke with Brooke about her early Colorado fall wedding was shortly after wrapping up a 13 degree senior snow session! It was FREEZING and Kris and I were still on our way back to the car.
As I asked Brooke about her relationship and what each of them does for a living, I found out that she was studying to be a life-flight NICU nurse. HOW AWESOME IS THAT! Anyone who knows someone who's had a baby in NICU, knows how incredible these nurses are. They love our babies as if they were their own. They cry with mommies and daddies, they become family and in turn become part of the success in our children's lives.
As she started talking about everything, you could hear the joy in her voice and feel the smile on her face. She was not only doing what she loved and pursuing her "dream job", but marrying the man of her dreams.
Dustin and Brooke had a very simple plan for their wedding: fun, rustic, mountain wedding. As you'll see in the coming photos, they hit each and every aspect. From Brooke's gorgeous delicate lace robe and stunning Maggie Sottero gown to Dustin's creased jeans and custom elk antler wedding band, this couple was able to provide their guests with a down home country wedding.
To Dustin & Brooke: Thank you for allowing us to first capture your engagement photos at a place of such meaning and truly allowing us into your home. Thank you for trusting us with moments than pass in the blink of an eye and thank you for sharing your hearts with us. We are truly blessed to have been such a small part of your new lives and hope that every time you look at your images, that you're brought back to this moment, surrounded by the smell of Fireball, bonfires and the rain rolling in.
Special Thank You to all the vendors who helped make their wedding, a day to remember!
