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.
And here’s that cool seating chart I was telling you about…
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.
