I'm based in Grand Junction, CO and capture the story & scenery of your favorite day. Serving Crested Butte, Ouray, Moab, Aspen and beyond!

It’s the height of wedding season, and I’m noticing again all the little things that go into making a wedding day run smoothly (well… as smoothly as wedding days can anyway!) One thing that has always impressed me is what I affectionately call the “oh shit kit” — which one of my past couples called it and I simply can’t think of a better name lol! Someone calls out for scissors, boom. Someone needs nail clippers, got it. Suddenly we need to resew a button on someone’s attire, done. No matter what little things seem to pop up during getting ready, that wedding emergency kit comes in handy! Today I want to touch on the things I’ve seen come most in handy, as well as some well-known standards that should be included in that wedding emergency kit!
