Gian and Lawrence have had a whirlwind of a year. In just over a year’s time they met, started dating, traveled extensively, got engaged, moved to Colorado, and got married! When they first contacted me about shooting their wedding they didn’t have a date or location set but after a lot of looking they decided that an intimate Estes Park wedding would be perfect for them.
And man, were they right!
They had their wedding at the Historic Crag’s Lodge in Estes Park with around 45 of their closest friends and family in attendance (the vast majority of whom traveled in from out of state!). This was the perfect spot for an intimate mountain wedding.
We had been watching the weather report closely all week and were a little concerned about the rain. I LOVE shooting in rain and snow (like, seriously love it!!) but its not necessarily ideal for wedding guests. The fog was thick on my way drive up to the mountains but the rain was holding.
A light drizzle started during their first look at Rocky Mountain National Park and by the time we made it back to the lodge for the ceremony the sky looked like it was about to open. A decision was made to push the ceremony back half an hour to see if we could still do it outside and, sure enough, a little while later things cleared up and we had a beautiful evening!
I had an amazing time with these guys, their sweet friends and families, and of course their dogs Emma and Toby (who were also their flower girl and ring bearer, of course!). I’m so stoked for what the future holds for them and grateful to have been a part of their day.
Here are some photos from their Historic Crag’s Lodge wedding. Enjoy!
