Fall Wedding at Snow Mountain Ranch in Granby Colorado

September 18, 2013

Even the most meticulously planned weddings will never go exactly as they should, but poor Jessi and Michael started off their wedding day a bit rockier than usual. There was a no-show hair dresser complicating the preparations, a bout of altitude sickness, & I-70 was closed off because of the flooding and rock slides making it hard for the vendors and guests to get to the wedding taking place at Snow Mountain Ranch in Granby.

But despite these obstacles Jessi & Michael kept their eye on the prize and chose not to freak out over the things they couldn’t control. And even though it was Friday the 13th there was a lot of good luck happening. Ilizabeth at Fraser Hair Company juggled her other appointments that day to fit in the bridal party and I thankfully made it out on time because I left myself an extra 2.5 hours to get up there:) And one of the biggest miracles of the day was that it didn’t rain!

By the time the first look rolled around I knew it would be smooth sailing from there. No Friday the 13th shenanigans could steal the thunder from Jessi & Michael’s ceremony. It was a beautiful and spiritual celebration with guests sitting in a circle around them. I think that just seeing each other and knowing why they were gathered there made everything else just melt away. In the end, it was a perfect wedding:)

I had to get a shot of this hotel because that is one of the best names ever:)

My favorite:)
