The strategy for Chris was always to tie the knot with the love his life, Hannah. Through rain or sunshine, his fire continued to burn passionately for her. Ultimately, the path to her heart was illuminated through their mutual love. On a gorgeous fall day in September, Chris and Hannah sealed their love forever at the Evergreen Red Barn.
The entire bridal party was adventurous and vivacious for all of our portraits and photo expeditions. Weaving in and out of the foothills and aspens, everyone was up for exploring and having fun in front of the camera. Perhaps the one most excited about trekking around the mountains was Jake, the couple’s 6 month old puppy who was also the ring bearer. He had unlimited energy and brought even more joy and playfulness to the day.
Prior to the ceremony, the groomsmen played various games, none more impressive than a new game called Hermetica. The most intriguing aspect was that this game was created by the groom himself and a couple of his groomsmen. Hermetica is a brilliantly designed strategy based game and aesthetically beautiful as well.
Furthermore, the bridesmaids dresses that Hannah chose were so fun! The dresses were all the same cut, but the way each one styled the straps was entirely different and unique to the individual. The colors were also different but all of the same tone, and they complimented Hannah so well!
Chris proposed to Hannah on Mount Quandary, one of Colorado’s 14ers. Hence, each one of their reception tables were named after various 14ers around Colorado. The three levels of the Evergreen Red Barn were especially effective as it created a very cozy environment on what became a chili evening. The top two floors shared a common space with open air between them. Guests were able to look down upon the bridal party’s table and all had great views of the toasts and speeches.
Finally, guests moved downstairs for polaroid photo ops and dancing as the nearly full, bright moon rose high into the night’s sky. Hannah and Chris, your wedding was so much fun and well thought out! Your families, friends, and bridal party were all so kind and cheerful. Thank you for letting us be a part of your incredible day. We wish you all the best adventures in the years to come!
