A Snowy Mountain Top Fairytale Wedding........
Breckenridge Wedding Photographer, Summit County Weddings, Dillon Wedding Photographer

I have the most romantic wedding story to share........sit down & take a deep breath & put on your romantic hat! This was a moment meant to be on Monday afternoon here in Summit County, Colorado just after we had gotten 3 feet of snow and the sun came out to SHINE!

I was doing a senior portrait at my favorite overlook spot, SAPPHIRE POINT, and when we finished up, another car pulled up. By their gorgeous attire, I could tell that they were going to get married, and then I noticed the Officiant, Gretchen Abernathy, who had married my husband and I 12 years ago!

The mother of the high school senior asked...."Do you have a photographer? Because Kay is a wedding photographer!" And the couple, Christa & Cole, looked at each other & said, "No, come along with us!"

So I spent about 20 minutes photographing their most spectacular union on top of Swan Mountain and I truly think there was magic in the air! Can't you tell from these photos? And I think I was supposed to be there documenting the moment! And I may have two new friends, Christa & Cole - aren't they adorable?

I think this was a most perfect fairytale wedding! Maybe someday I will learn their love story, but for now I can only guess! But I can tell that they are truly in love...as it just radiates in the photographs!

These are the days that make me LOVE being a wedding photographer!

I just LOVE these pictures Kay and the cute story that goes along with them. I think these are some of the best I've seen from you. There is so much emotion & love felt in the photographs. They must feel so blessed to have run into you on that mountain top :)
