{REAL WEDDING} LOVE AT OURAY’S BEAUMONT HOTEL…

“Jen and Eric are rock and ice climbers who would get away every year to Ouray, CO to climb the ice and mountains. Ouray is called the “The Switzerland of America”. They drive to their ceremony site was an off road 4×4 adventure to reach the mountain top. They style of the wedding was influenced by Eric’s need for structure and purpose as he is an architect and Jen as a former graphic designer needed aesthetic balance and uniqueness. The heart decorations on the place settings were hand stitched by Jen and her bachelorette party. The wedding dress was by Jim Hjelm and the flowers were by Willow Creek Floral. The day was very relaxed even with the little bit of rain, the stress level was low. The mood was fun and airy and the couple was in love.”

their story and wedding day are perfect.  but man, those last few frames of their first dance.  spectacular and encapsulates it all.

beyond thrilled to share this wedding from

THE WILLINGHAMS

proud to call Drew and Angela friends in real life.  they always manage to capture the true essence of the wedding day and what really is important- showing all the love that happens on that day.  you’ll need to check out what else the Willinghams have been up to on THEIR BLOG.  stay there for awhile…you won’t be disappointed.
