"What you're doing today, it's about you but it is about so much more. [...] you don't know this but 100 years from now there is a generation that is going to [...] look back on this day and they're going to say thanks be to God that the two of you, Ryan and Rachel, that you found one another that you fell in love, that you said yes, I want to. For now and always. You're giving a gift to the future. And that, my friends, is a very beautiful thing."
We loved this quote taken from Ryan and Rachel's wedding ceremony. It so beautifully helps put into words the significance and impact that the day has not only for the couple, but for the future family and connections that grow from these two people's love. This is part of why we love getting to film weddings and help capture these important moments. It's hard not to get pulled in emotionally when you think of weddings in this way!
Rachel and Ryan's wedding took place at the Sonnenalp Hotel in Vail, Colorado in the heart of summer. Their ceremony was in a picturesque white steepled church across the street -- the Vail Interfaith Chapel. Emotions aside, we were really blown away by how stunning this weddings was. Every carefully planned detail for their big day was so classy, elegant, and chic. Their reception was one of our favorites EVER! It took place in an attached glass terrace that had large sliding glass walls AND a sliding glass roof that could all open up to the summer mountain air. Add in dozens of candles, gorgeous, overflowing floral centerpieces, and greenery-laced chandeliers, and you have one dreamy, romantic setting.
Rachel and Ryan for letting us be a part of your wedding day. We wish you all the best in your lifetime together!
Special thanks to all of the awesome vendors we got to work alongside for this wedding.

The catering, cake and reception venue were all provided by the Sonnenalp Hotel, and the ceremony was at Vail Interfaith Chapel.
