Gorrono Ranch Wedding in Telluride, Colorado!
On June 28, 2015, Nicole and Robert were married in an absolutely gorgeous wedding at Gorrono Ranch, in Telluride, CO. In preparation, Nicole got ready at Telluride Mountain Lodge. She had her hair done by Jen Achter, from XY Salon, and her makeup applied by Erin Cain. Her beautiful bouquet from New Leaf Design was waiting for her to carry down the aisle. Their beautiful day was planned by Meehan and Telluride Unveiled and went off without a hitch! Along side the wonderful staff of TSG at Gorrono Ranch provided an unforgettable time, meeting the needs of everyone while providing a 5 star meal in the most gorgeous setting!
She looked flawless as we went to meet Robert at the fishing pier in Mountain Village. As we pulled up, raindrops started falling. We offered Nicole an umbrella, but she respectfully declined it as she walked to see her future husband for the first time.
It was easy to shoot stunning photographs of this gorgeous couple. Although Robert and Nicole live in San Diego, they both feel a special bond with the mountains. Something we bonded over the first time we met a year earlier. It was simple to be at ease in this magical environment. These two are a prime example of true love and it makes my job easy to capture the essence of this special bond. Having photographed their engagement a year before, I could see how much their love had grown–what a gift to witness!! Their excitement and anticipation for their wedding day was evident, but the love between them was palpable. I LOVE MY JOB!!!
The ceremony was officiated by Martinique Davis Prohaska, of Wellspring Ceremonies. Marti as we call her, does such an incredible job officiating, providing everyone with the back story of Nicole and Robert’s love and relationship. She presided over the beautiful vows which brought the bride, groom and other onlookers to tears, and also filled the group with love and laughter.
It was a heartfelt ceremony for this lovely couple, who’s love has grown along with the garden they planted together at home. Their families and friends came from far and wide to witness Robert and Nicole walk down the aisle of Gorrono Ranch, with Wilson Peak in the background, and profess their love to each other. Their parents beamed with pride watching their children say I do.
Their scrumptious cake was created with love by Jean Louis at Telluride Specialty Cakes!
The 5 Star meal I was raving about!! Pan seared trout and filet mignon served with roasted garlic mashed potatoes and grilled asparagus! YUMMY!!!
What an honor to witness and capture such JOY + LOVE!
First dance song was “Fade into you” by Mazzy Starr Everyone danced the night away with music from Aiko Aiko Sound but the sound system came all the way from San Diego, CA–Robert’s pride and joy — Beautiful Sound! What a perfect compliment to the Beautiful people!
Thank you for allowing me to capture such a loved filled day, it is such an honor and a gift to be a part of such a blessed event! I know we will be life long friends! I adore you to pieces!
And a HUGE thank you to this amazing creative team! Peace and Gratitude!
