From the moment we met Eli & Aubree, it was almost 2 years before their wedding day was finally here. This was the wedding I couldn't wait to see come together. Aubree is our bride who wore a custom made red wedding gown. That's right...red!
She had one of the most unique wedding visions that you really had to see to believe. Walking into cocktail hour gave me chills. The amount of white was UNREAL and as I walked through everyone to capture the reception location, I couldn't help but smile. Opening the doors to the reception hall was no different, the colors just gave me goosebumps!! Gorgeous blue uplighting, EVERYTHING in white, candlelit dinner with the white rose petals was stunning. It was so different and beyond refreshing!
What made this even more amazing....none of the guests had any clue what Aubree had in store for them other than asking everyone to "please wear white." I can only imagine what went through their minds as they read the invitation! When you're invited to a wedding, what's the one color you don't wear? White! Nope, not for Aubree! As a little girl she dreamt of wearing a red dress with everyone else in white and every aspect of the day gave us so much appreciation for her vision. It was more than I could ever imagine and the feel through out the day was simply incredible!!
After we finished with cocktail hour, guests were ushered outside to take a seat before starting their night ceremony under the lights in Vail Square. I'm just the photographer, but I couldn't stop smiling and when you see Aubree's face, neither could she!!! As her wedding party made their way down the circular ceremony isle, Aubree took one step towards her guest with more than 100 onlookers and with that one step; everyone erupted in cheering as Eli stood on stage in amazement!! Honestly the BEST grand entrance we've ever been part of.
To Eli & Aubree, Kris and I are so honored that you gave us an opportunity to hike all over Vail and capture your amazing wedding. We hope these images make you smile, give you goosebumps and bring you back to your day all over again. Continue to allow your love to grow and keep doing what you're doing with those sweet baby girls.
