Stanley Hotel Wedding {Craig & Amanda}

Craig and Amanda were one of our incredible bride and grooms from Texas who were up for absolutely anything!  When we met, I spoke with them about the possibility of adventuring into Rocky Mountain National park and not only were they excited, they wanted us to build it into the timeline no matter what.  That's when you know you were meant to be!  

As we spoke about their wedding and we learned more about all of the family and friends that would join them on this amazing experience we learned of several amazing family members who wouldn't be joining them.  Just a few short months prior to their wedding, both of Craig's parents passed unexpectedly and Amanda's mom who was fighting MS wouldn't be able to attend this monumental day.  Visibly devastated they spoke about the joy of their parents and how excited they were to see their entire family.  This event was more than most, it was the true meaning behind marriage and enjoying memories.

As this day unfolded we were able to explore Estes Park and the closer we to the first dances, we learned that Craig's best man organized all SIX of Craig's aunts to dance in his mother's place.  With everyone in tears, we were overjoyed to be able to capture everything this day had to offer.

Craig & Amanda, we thank you for allowing us to be there to capture moments of pure joy.  God's plan is always greater than our own and we are honored that you asked us to be there to capture your amazing memories.
