Melina and Bill’s wedding was beautiful, and romantic, but also very sentimental and highly personalized. Their love for the mountains really set the tone for this wedding! Countless personal details, however, make the event impactful and one of a kind.

As always, I started the wedding day by photographing the details. Melina had prepared everything before hand, by placing every item together in a box. So when I arrived, with bridal hair and makeup fully under way, Melina’s maid of honor was able to quickly pass the items off to me without digging through boxes and bags to find each piece. This is exactly what I recommend each of my clients to do, to start the wedding day off on the right foot.

After getting dressed in front of her girls, Melina did a reveal with her dad that did not disappoint in reaction or emotion! I seriously just love how emotional dads get when they see the bride in her gown – it never gets old!

Every part of their day was such an inspiration to me, and the creativity was freshly picked. I don’t think I can pick a favorite image from their wedding! Although I do give special attention to the photos at the ceremony. All in all, it was a perfect celebration of love and family – cherishing the things that are sacred and transcendent.
