Jennifer and Kobey were married before the holidays in a winter wedding at the historic Beaumont Hotel in Ouray Colorado! They cherish this area as their home-away-from-home… for now. They have purchased some land in Ridgway to build upon and live here one day soon! It only made sense to bring their closest loved ones to this most loved location for their wedding celebration, for everyone to enjoy the snowy mountains (especially beautiful during the holidays!)
They shared their ceremony on the stairs, a favorite indoor option at the Beaumont, and encouraged me to get creative as we crafted some portraits around the hotel. Jennifer had the vision of getting in the original claw foot bathtub in her room, all dressed up in her wedding attire, and I LOVE how this came out! I love bouncing ideas off of what inspires each of us when I work with my couples.
The next day we met up to head to Ridgway for a day-after session — an increasingly popular option for the included “engagement session” in my wedding packages for those couples coming from out of state. We drove up to their land to make some photos of them, Jennifer donning a fabulous bridal cape that was so much fun to play with for the pictures. I love how special and sentimental it will be for them to have these images in their future home they build on this property!
