It was a beautiful sunny day in Estes Park as Danielle stepped into her pearled and ruched wedding dress.. Her hotel room at the Estes Park Resort was full of laughter (and some tequila) in anticipation of saying "I Do" to Brandon, her handsome husband to-be. Danielle's bridesmaids wore flowy purple dresses and carried small bouquets of sunset colored roses and calla lilies.
Danielle chose to wear an adorable pair of tan and turquoise cowboy boots under her gown and carried a bouquet of sunset colored roses and calla lilies mixed with purple and white wildflowers.
Danielle and Brandon's sense of humor was apparent even on their Mr. and Mrs. shot glasses.
Danielle's brother proudly walked her down the aisle, decorated with the changing aspen leaves of fall, at Upper Beaver Meadows in Rocky Mountain National Park.
This long awaited "I Do" was 12 years in the making! But I must say, it was a good one :)
Danielle's bridesmaids were so excited to see their friend tie the knot that they could barely contain themselves after the ceremony.
Danielle and Brandon finally got some time alone after the ceremony. While their guests started cocktail hour at the Estes Park Resort, we went to Moraine Pointe in Rocky Mountain National Park.
We got treated to an elk showdown while we were photographing at Moraine Pointe so we had to make our riverside photo session quick in order to avoid being run over by bugling males. But I'd say it was worth it!
Congratulations Danielle and Brandon on such an amazing, light-hearted wedding, you are the reason that I am a wedding photographer. I loved capturing your special day and your deep love for each other. I wish you only the best!
