Sarah & Dave | Timber Ridge Keystone Wedding

Every time I look at the images from this wedding I am constantly drawn back into the story of their day. Timber Ridge is one of those venues that is 100% worth it once you get there but the logistics can be a bit crazy. You take two gondolas to get there. There is a road, but it is rough and not really used for guests. On this particular day it was stunning, sun shining, all the things you hope on the morning of your wedding. I went up the gondola with the girls and my other photographer stayed with the guys.

I made it up fine, but just as we were getting to the top of the mountain a storm hit and lightning shut down the gondolas leaving the guys at the top of the first peak. I am no stranger to this, it’s really the trade off for having a mountain top wedding. Sarah was amazing, so relaxed. We were supposed to do almost all the photos and first look before hand and she just went with it.

The good thing about Colorado is weather is so rarely ever socked in all day. Usually the storm passes and the sun comes out again and we have our bluebird skies back. This is exactly what happened this day and why I always tell my couples to pad their timelines a bit. It was raining… okay hailing and about half an hour later the sun came out and we were able to have the ceremony outside, only about 15 minutes behind schedule and we rearranged for all the big group photos to be done during cocktail hour.

If there is anything I have learned in my almost 10 years of doing this it is that if you want to get married on top of a mountain you have to be flexible. It helps if your photographer knows this too. I have seen photographers and guests come in from Texas or elsewhere who are not used to shooting at 12,000 feet above sea level (yup Timber Ridge is 12,000 feet above sea level you read that right) and get altitude sickness or not being used to dealing with weather issues. It all comes from experience and being flexible. Sarah and Dave were so laid back about the whole thing.

I think this really plays into Sarah and Dave’s attitude towards life in general. They were so sweet and laid back and loving towards each other. Dave constantly asking how Sarah was and if she needed anything. Serving each other left and right. Even with the hiccup in the weather both were so positive and in such great spirits the whole day. Just happy to spend the time with each other and closest family and friends. Sarah looked absolutely stunning and I loved her blush and soft details and twinkle lights never seem to disappoint. All in all it was a stunning day in a stunning venue with stunning people inside and out. I sometimes have to pinch myself that people like these pick me to be a part of their wedding day. Sarah and Dave I wish you all the best and hope you are enjoying your adventure!
