Fall Intimate Wedding at Maroon Bells | Nick + Ashley

Posted On | September 29, 2022

Nick and Ashley knew when they were planning their wedding that they didn’t want to go the traditional route. Instead, they knew that their perfect day would consist of them getting married in the mountains surrounded by their closest friends and family, followed by some good food and a relaxing evening.  The day of their wedding they spent a slow morning getting ready in separate rooms of their rental home while the property owner worked on putting together a fresh bouquet and boutonnière for the bride and groom from the garden out back. It rained softly as they wrote their vows and tried to calm their nerves.  The clouds parted just in time for their emotional first look!  Wanting to take advantage of the vibrant colors of fall in Colorado, they held their ceremony at the Maroon Bells Amphitheater surrounded by golden aspens and towering maroon peaks. Nick and Ashley snuck off for a short hike and some alone time together, marveling at the beauty that surrounded them and soaking up that just-married high! They ended the day back at their rental home where the owner had generously provided the coziest setup for dinner. Nick and Ashely changed into something a bit more comfortable (and warmer!) before enjoying a celebratory toast and laid-back dinner with their loved ones. 

I can’t say enough good things about We, The Light Photography. We had our hearts set on Maroon Bells in Colorado for our wedding ceremony, and in case we weren’t able to get that spot, Bailey wasted no time in finding beautiful locations for us to choose from. She made the whole process so easy and relaxed from beginning to end. Her excellent planning and attention to detail made the entire day feel so easy and fun. We normally feel awkward taking photos, but Bailey’s kindness and upbeat personality made it such a fun experience. The photos were more beautiful than we could have imagined and we’ll cherish them for so many years to come. If you’re looking for a wonderful team to photograph your special day, we 1000% recommend We, The Light Photography!
