Alpino Vino Winter Wedding

Dan and Nancy wanted to ski into their Alpino Vino winter wedding in Telluride, Colorado. With Alpino Vino sitting up above 12,000 feet, they wanted their close friends and family to have a experience for their wedding.

In the middle of January, we met up at their friend’s home in Mountain Village, CO. They gathered their ski and wedding gear and before we headed out on to the slopes of Telluride Ski Area we snapped some fun photos.

From their home in Mountain Village to the Telluride Tempter House, we took 3 chair lifts to get there! I just adored the bride’s goggles.

Bride and groom exchanged personal letters to one another. And the ladies were pampered by Erin Cain, a Telluride makeup artist. And Megan Murray for their hair. If you’re looking for a great team that comes with awesome talent and a caring heart. Look no further.

Winter Ceremony in Telluride

As guests arrived by a snow cat, the snow began to fall at 12,000 feet. It made for a magical evening.

After the ceremony, the groom surprised his new wife with an additional ring. Then onto the party of toasts, a fantastic dinner, delicious wine, nummy cake and a wonderful night of dancing before being taken back down the mountain by the snow cat.

The day was truly AWESOME! Dan and Nancy hired me for the entire day, making it easier for them to relax and I could easily document everything!

Telluride Wedding Photographer

I photographed my first Telluride wedding in 2005 on film. Can you believe that?!! And I’ve been hooked ever since. Averaging 15-20 weddings per year. That’s close to 300 weddings since 2005. I also went to a commercial photography school because I wanted to learn lighting. Knowing how to light everything from food, people, fashion and architecture come into play at a wedding. Plus, Colorado can have some harsh lighting conditions with all of the sun! And on the flip side, snow is just as tricky! I know how to put you at ease in front of the camera and will capture your day the way you want it to play out! Providing you and yours beautiful images that will last forever.
