Kirsten & Vince | Ouray Wedding

I originally met Kirsten and Vince over Skype as they are amazing servants in our military and currently stationed in South Korea.  When I first chatted with them I knew we were going to be a perfect fit for one aother. Their plan for their wedding included finding a spot on the side of the mountain and taking their guests up in a open air jeep ride, nostalgically in the mountains where Kirsten grew up and lived before joinging the military where I am sure her adventurous heart is at play.  If you have never been to Ouray you seriously need to go. The mountains there are so different than the rest of the state. It’s not called “The Switzerland of America” for nothing. Kirsten and Vince’s playfulness, love and passion for each other is inspiring. There is an infectious joy when you are in their presence and they are not afraid to share their emotions and love for each other. Kirsten grew up in Ouray, one of the locals and her dad still lives there. A true mountain girl and definitely one after my heart. Her carefree laid back approach to the day was exactly what she wanted. Their fun playful dancing during their portraits and Vince’s flash mob with his groomsmen during the reception only further prove their awesomeness.  It was an epically beautiful day and perfectly them. Thank you Kirsten and Vince for your unending infectionous joy and for sharing it with me. It was an absolute honor to capture your day.
