I will begin this story by quoting the father of the bride from his dinner toast, ” it was a crystal blue sky, on a crystal clear day, in the Crystal River Valley of Colorado”. Crystal and Jesse welcomed their loved ones to River Valley Ranch in Carbondale, Colorado for a beautiful mountain wedding day. After days of rain, their wedding day skies were bursting with sunshine, without a single cloud in sight. It was natural for my jaw to drop upon arriving at the venue, with a snow-dusted Mt. Sopris as a backdrop. But what stopped me in my tracks this wedding day were the touching words from Crystal and Jesse’s ceremony, given by a dear family friend. I found myself pausing my shutter finger quite often and tuning in to his very sincere words and wishes for the bride and groom.
The ceremony and dinner were followed with dancing the night away in the barn – which made for a pretty perfect Colorado wedding. It was an honor to be there, Crystal and Jesse. Here are some of my favorites:
