Ash and Chloe’s destination wedding in Vail was not only steeped in the most gorgeous fall mountain light, but it was full of beautiful traditions, too. Their wedding venue, Vail Chapel, held special significance for their families: it was the same church where Ashleigh’s grandparents had been married many moons ago. The couple chose to meet for the first look on top of the mountain at Vail’s wedding deck, where they took a moment for themselves and exchanged their first set of vows. They then rode down the gondola together for an intimate ceremony at the base of the mountain along the river at the chapel and a family dinner at the Lerona. It was the perfect end to their own Vail wedding day!
One of the things I love most about being a Colorado wedding photographer is that no two days are the same. Whether it’s someone’s something old, something blue, or that magical mountain color that appears just so, every couple has a special moment that makes their celebration entirely unique. Ash and Chloe found a way to both honor their family history and start new traditions of their own, and it was such a joy to serve as their wedding photographer!
