We were honored to document Paula and Graham’s wedding in Grand Lake, Colorado. We met them the night before their wedding because they took a vintage speed boat across the lake to their rehearsal dinner. It started raining right as they were en route, but that didn’t stop them from having a blast!
The night before their wedding, snow fell on the tops of the mountains surrounding us. The morning of their wedding was chilly and very foggy, but that didn’t stop them from doing one of their favorite past times at Grand Lake–water skiing! The fog made for some really unique photos and their wet suits kept them warm…sort of 😉
What we loved most about their wedding is that they truly thought about the things most important to them and made sure to incorporate those things… The boat ride to the rehearsal dinner, the morning water skiing, Paula’s famous breakfast burritos, being in the outdoors, using an open field for their ceremony site (not to mention that Graham MADE the pergola that they stood under!), having their dog around all day, and they had their reception at Graham’s parents cabin, complete with a bluegrass band, bonfire, all their favorite sweets, and strung lights. It was all just perfect! So much more we could say, but we’ll let the photos tell the rest of the story.Bride’s Dress: BHLDN
