Amber + Dalton | Spruce Mountain Ranch Colorado Wedding

I am FINALLY getting around to sharing probably my favorite wedding we’ve ever done. Amber and Dalton were our 2018 wedding giveaway winners and busted their butts to win the contest we ran on Facebook.

We have gotten to know these two over the past year and a half, and by the time their wedding came around it felt like we were just celebrating with dear friends we’d known for ages. They modeled for me and a couple other photographers shortly after winning the contest, then later in the year the 4 of us spent the night in an AirBnB and grilled steaks, then woke up at the butt crack of dawn to go chase the sunrise around Rocky Mountain National Park for their engagement session.

About Amber and Dalton. They are two of the most genuine, down to earth, loving, joyful, fun, real people you will ever meet. They met when they were 12 years old in confirmation class, and through a crazy alignment of the stars found their way back to each other years down the road and that led them up to their perfect day.

They were married at Spruce Mountain Ranch in Larkspur, Colorado, surrounded by a couple hundred of their closest friends and family. It was the most beautiful day. The morning was rainy and stormy, but just before the ceremony the sun decided to show himself and didn’t leave for the rest of the day! They laughed and exuded joy through their ceremony, we got the most insanely gorgeous light on the mountainside for their couple portraits, and then we headed back to the reception for a killer meal, beautiful and heartfelt toasts and then they danced the night away with their people. They had a wine themed wedding, with little personalized Rose bottles for favors, and yummy boozy desserts.

It was the most beautiful day for the most beautiful couple. The joy that covered their day was incredible and so very tangible. It was our honor to be a part of their day and to tell their story. We love you two and are so excited for you guys! Marriage is the best adventure!

Honestly I could shoot this couple over and over, and STILL be inspired by their love for one another and how gorgeous and happy they are together. They are the type of people that when you are around them, you leave better than when you came.

They had a KILLER set of vendors as well, and I feel like I need to give them credit for making this day so beautiful!
