2017 Year in Review – Weddings

Della Terra Mountain Chateau is one of my favorite wedding venues! And it’s not hard to see why. Set just outside of Estes Park, the backdrop any way you look is stunning, not to mention the wild turkeys and elk wandering around. There were SO many elk on Jo Beth & Alex’s wedding day, we […]

Della Terra Mountain Chateau Wedding – Jo Beth & Alex

I believe in cherishing each and every moment. A few weeks ago I was having a conversation with my husband about the big and little moments in our lives. We discussed how there might be 5, maybe 10 monumental moments in our relationship together, like getting engaged, our wedding, the potential birth of children (no, […]

This wedding might not be exactly what you think when you hear backyard wedding. Brian and Olivia’s elegant backyard wedding in Longmont, Colorado was so dreamy in every way!
