Della Terra Mountain Chateau Wedding {Colorado Wedding Photographer}

Settled back in the thick trees of the rocky mountains sits the exquisite and most romantic place in Colorado. There’s breathtaking views, serene privacy, and the chateau itself is incredible! I worked with Pilar’s family several years ago for one of their daughter’s senior portraits and when they contacted me for their other daughter’s wedding at Della Terraย I was just thrilled!! One because I truly cherish repeat clients, and two because Della Terra is one of my most favorite places to be.ย It’s a place that gives that romantic fairy tale wedding a girl always dreams about. ๐Ÿ™‚

Chance & Miranda it’s always such a pleasure working with you and your family!!! I am so excited to see what all unfolds for you guys next and I wish you all the happiness of 100 lifetimes!

Here are some of my favorites, enjoy your story!

Lakeside Estate Wedding {Colorado Wedding Photographer}

Is it already 2016? What happened to 2015? Holy moly what a busy year!! They say as you get older that time flies by even faster and I never really understood that. Until now. I am going to be 32 this year. Am I worried about it? Not really at all but it is kind of scary. Though this year went by super fast there were a lot of really amazing moments like that amazing sparkler exit from Mike and Tiffany’s Campus Wedding, or our amazing trips to Cali and Florida for ย both a wedding and a vacation, I am excited for a new year and another awesome season of weddings!!

This wedding, from August, was truly a lakeside delight. From the gorgeous setting, to the lovely couple, to all the incredible details it was just beyond words!! I am so honored I was there to share it and that I can share it with you now!

Andrew & Lauren it was such a pleasure working with you both!! Dominic and I were so honored we could help give you the wedding day of your dreams! We wish you many blessings for a long and happy life together!

Enjoy your story! ๐Ÿ™‚
