It was a real pleasure to kick of this year’s wedding season with Jessica and Luis, who I had a great time photographing in Fort Collins for their engagement photos at Christmas. The sub-freezing temperatures then were good practice for their wedding day, which took place at the YMCA in Estes Park nestled in the mountains. After warmer temperatures and melted snow the week before it started snowing overnight and kept going throughout the day, dumping over a foot of snow! It made it a winter wonderland and the day more memorable for those that traveled from warmer climates to be there. The couple had their ceremony at Ponder Chapel followed by a lavender toss afterwards. Despite the heavy snow and cold we managed to get some amazing photos outside, and of course the guys had to have a snowball fight at some point. The wedding reception had lots of fun Mexican tradition and dancing in honor of Luis’ heritage, and an amazing candy buffet! Congrats, Jessica and Luis!
