eureka lodge weddingP I N

Anne & Michael hosted their wedding in a remote ghost town nestled deep in the San Juan Mountains – the venue was a historic miner’s inn, now known as Eureka Lodge. The setting made you feel like you’d traveled back in time, transported into those old black & white photographs of western miners in the 1800s. Michael grew up visiting Southern Colorado often with his family. As a pair, Anne & Michael, have traveled the world, yet they’ve always had a fondness for Colorado. We too, have a deep love for the tall pines and sweeping mountain ranges that cover this incredible state and count our blessings each and every time we get to return – for work or play. 😉

Anne & Michael are quite possibly two of the most laid-back people we’ve ever met. They are also two of the most adventurous people we’ve ever met. We feel like we pretty much lucked out on getting connected with them. These guys were up for anything – willing to cross any stream, climb any mountain and walk along the cliffs edge while we followed them around with our cameras. This entire day was straight out of a dream.  One of our favorite details? The seating chart! I feel like I’m always going on and on about cool seating charts, but really, it’s such a fun way to get creative and interactive with the guests. Each table displayed a postcard of a different national park and the guests found their seat by the wooden US map which charted out the location of each park. Pretty cool, huh? And perfect for this outdoor-loving couple. All of the details & decor came together beautifully thanks to the extremely talented Mandy of Celebrations.

We love this “in-between” shot of Anne & Michael hiking through the woods. Anne traded in her cute wedges for chacos and was happy as a clam. These two are truly in their element here and we were so very happy to oblige.

bohemian lake weddingP I NI’m not sure that I have words to express just HOW awesome AK & Dan’s bohemian lake wedding was, but I’m sure going to try! After shooting their adventurous engagement session and the epic rehearsal dinner, we were stoked to see just how incredible the wedding day would be. A slow morning started at AK’s family lake home with a first look on the dock overlooking the water. Soon, we were making our way over to Springhouse for the main event.

Once again, M. Elizabeth Events and Hothouse Design Studio nailed it. The tented ceremony felt like a bohemian festival scene. Giant king protea flowers, flowing fabrics that mimic the sea, and a aisle that zigged and zagged with layered turkish rugs. The reception was one-of-a-kind for sure. Hundreds of stemmed flowers and string lights floated above the dance floor. Opposite the stage, an oversized projector played clips of AK & Dan’s favorite movie scenes. And to top it all off, halfway through the night, the brewing rainstorm from earlier that day finally let loose – soaking everyone on the dance floor. IT. WAS. SO. FUN.

desert inspired rehearsal dinner ideasP I N

This desert inspired rehearsal dinner is what bohemian dreams are made of. AK & Daniel created the most killer rehearsal dinner ever, with the help of M. Elizabeth Events and Hothouse Design Studio. The dinner took place under the stunning giant tipis just on the edge of the water – courtesy of Exchange Vintage. It was our first time seeing these tipis in person and they are incredible! Like AK & Dan, we absolutley love the desert and traveling out West. Remember their epic canyon engagement session? The dinner came together perfectly with tons of bohemian accents, giant cacti and macrame for days. We especially loved the setting chart – each table was marked by the photo of a famous couple. Not only was this dinner dressed up to the nines – there was a dance floor & DJ ready to keep the party going all night long. We don’t shoot rehearsal dinners often, but when we do – we hope they’re like this one! 😉
