The adventures awaiting in the rugged grandeur of the Rocky Mountains brings to mind white water rafting, black diamond runs, rock climbing, 4-wheeling, and weddings. Yes I said weddings – there’s something so very special about mountain weddings – the spectacular vistas, the crisp high country air and the blue of the Colorado sky. This year, with the record snow and rainfall, these majestic mountains are swathed in a blanket of green patterned with every color of wild flower imaginable. It’s breathtakingly beautiful. Kari and Dustin’s wedding at the Beaver Creek Park Hyatt had all of this as the backdrop combined with an element of sophistication one might not expect of a wedding in the mountains. From the fashionable venue in a setting that is absolutely incredible, food exquisitely prepared and presented, and tastefully appointed facilities to the classy wedding gown and adorable fairy princess flower girls this wedding could only be described as elegant. Kari picked this date based on my availability and I don’t think she has any idea what an unbelievable compliment that was for me. She amazed me when, with grace and charm, she climbed up the mountainside in heels to get these stunning shots taking advantage of the greenery and wild flowers. And Dustin…well, he’s going down as one of my favorite grooms. Of course, I do have a soft spot for grooms that get emotional and cry during the ceremony (I secretly wish for this at all my weddings). I have to admit, when Kari’s father made his toast and expressed his gratitude to Dustin for reigniting Kari’s luminous smile, there might have been a few tears in my eyes too. This outstanding wedding had it all – adoring couple, sentimentality, and a group of fun and supportive friends and family. Wrap all this up and place it in one of the most magnificent mountain settings in Colorado and you have perfection. Thank you, thank you thank you Kari and Dustin for including me! 01 Bride and Groom on covered bridge in Beaver Creek wedding 02 Groom details getting ready 06 Beaver Creek wedding Tiffany's wedding ring and box09 Flower girls and dress Beaver Creek Wedding 05 Groom tie and ring 04 Wedding Dress and shoes Beaver Creek Wedding 03 View of the ski slopes from Beaver Creek Park Hyatt 08 Groom getting ready Beaver Creek Park Hyatt Wedding 17 Bride on Park Hyatt deck in Beaver Creek 16 Groomsmen and Bridesmaids Beaver Creek Wedding 15 Mom and Dad seeing Bride for first time on wedding day 14 Bride taking photos of flower girls in Beaver Creek 13 Old Hollywood Glamour Photo of Beaver Creek Bride 12 B&W photo of bride in doorway Beaver Creek wedding 11 Flower girls dancing beave Creek wedding 10 Cute flower girls and wildflowers in Beaver Creek18 Groom Photos Beaver Creek wedding 35 Best Day Ever Wedding Ring Photo 19 Bride on Deck in Beaver Creek Park Hyatt wedding20 Dramatic shot of bride going to ceremony beaver creek wedding22 Bride and Groom during vows at Beaver Creek Park Hyatt Wedding21 Ceremony at Beaver Creek Park Hyatt wedding23 Bride and Groom in Beaver Creek wedding photos24 Wedding Party on the mountain in Beaver Creek wedding25 Bride and Groom walking on dirt road in Beaver Creek Colorado26 Bride on dirt road in Beaver Creek Park Hyatt wedding29 Bride and Groom in the slopes in Beaver Creek27 Bride and Goom in wildflowers Beaver Creek Park Hyatt Wedding28 Bride and Groom on hiking trail in Beaver Creek31 Beaver Creek Park Hyatt wedding reception with Tiffany Blue30 Amazing Wedding Reception food by Beaver Creek Park Hyatt32 Wedding Cake at Park Hyatt Beaver Creek33 Bride and Groom dramatic first dance photo34 Stunning first dance photos at wedding reception36 Beaver Creek Park Hyatt Wedding Reception Party Venue, Caterer, Cake: Park Hyatt Beaver Creek
