Kara & I got in touch just two weeks before her Big Day when she was searching for a last-minute replacement for her photographer. I was excited to accept the challenge, and met her just two days before her wedding. We clicked right away and I couldn’t wait to get up to Estes Park to shoot her special day with Matt (and their sweet Lulu).

The whole day was up top at the Mountainside Lodge at the YMCA of the Rockies in Estes Park. The view is gorgeous in every direction; it’s a perfect Colorado wedding venue. During the ceremony, Kara & Matt invited all of their parents to help plant a new tree that they’ll bring home together.

Their reception was above the ceremony site by the lodge, under an open pavilion overlooking another mountain range. Name cards were tied to pine cones hanging from a tree nearby. Each setting had a mason jar with a map and wildflower seeds for guests to take with them. The cake was beautiful, the speeches were sweet and the dancing lasted all night. Matt even had a special dance with his almost-one-year-old, Lulu. We grabbed one last photo of Matt & Kara as the sun set behind the mountains.

Congratulations, Kara & Matt, and thank you so much for including me in your amazing day!
