Mountain Wedding

Two very special people got married in Colorado this weekend.  Here are a few photos of the day.

The wedding was a destination wedding. It took place up at Breckenridge, Colorado. An elevation of 9600 ft. It was a lovely weekend. Some clouds, but sunny with no snow or rain. Jenn would have liked snow. This photo was taken at the scenic overview at the turn-off for Frisco and Breckenridge. Maybe 15 minutes away from the lodge where we were staying.

The night before the marriage ceremony. One Bride and Three Bridesmaids goofing off. Jenn, Stephanie, Michelle, and Vera. Jenn is wearing a dress that belonged to her twin sister, the fourth bridesmaid, Laura. Jenn traded one of her necklaces for the dress the next day. The necklace went perfectly with the shirt Laura was wearing.

Me the morning of the wedding. I was totally worn out from Altitude Sickness. I do like this picture a lot. Even if I look a little sleepy. Oddly, that was the morning after the ONLY night that I slept. Insomnia is a symptom of Altitude Sickness.

This is my favorite photo of the happy couple. Abby is in the white dress with Greco-Roman lines. Her shawl is hiding the distinct shoulder details and the fall of fabric down the one arm. Jenn is in the antique peach/rose/mauve sort of color. She had a matching shawl but she also brough along a pink leather jacket that matched better in normal light than by christmas lights and camera flashes. She was the only one with a coat on in the cold, November, high mountain air. She also wore boots under that dress. They were probably the prettiest couple I’ve ever seen at a wedding.

And here is another look at the mountains right around the area. I zoomed in on one of them. It was a pretty place, but having the entire wedding party and guests staying in one cabin, a very BIG cabin, was still enough energy to create tension and temper flares. Still, it was a good time in the end.
