i’m going to try my best  not to clutter this up with as many words as are currently running through my head about this project. long story short is, i wanted to style a wedding shoot that was super unique, to show you all the type of wedding that really makes me tick. i decided on winter because more peeps should get married in winter, especially in colorado’s mountains.

insert the styling and vintage wears genius of my old friend mary of mk graces and the amazing (emphasis: amazing) floral design talent amber mustain of beautiful expressions, and you have what follows. the only thing not real about this wedding was that the models didn’t get married. the rest was there – sweat, tears and i do believe i bled at one point. i am overwhelmed with gratitude for the models and my collaborators. i don’t think it would be humanly possible to repay each of you.

my wish is for this to inspire you to think outside of the traditional wedding box. i hope you love what you see.
