Rainy Crested Butte Small Wedding | Caitlin + Michael

Posted On | August 1, 2022

Getting married in the mountains in the summer always runs the risk of a bit of rain ☔
When Colorado decided to bless Caitlin + Michael’s wedding day with lots of it, they made the best of it!
Caitlin and Michael started the day with an intimate ceremony with their closest friends and family at the Crested Butte Mountain Wedding Garden. Distant thunder was the perfect soundtrack as they shared their vows and made it official.
As we explored different parts of Crested Butte and went on a short hike through a field of wildflowers, the storm continued to hold off, only occasionally giving us a few sprinkles.
It wasn’t until they started playing their song during their first dance that the weather decided it had waited long enough.
As if on cue, as soon as Adele sang “When the rain is blowing in your face, and the whole world is on your case, I could offer you a warm embrace, to make you feel my love” the wind and rain picked up.
After braving the storm for a little bit longer, we finally headed to Bonez to warm up with some margs and tacos and spend the rest of the evening celebrating with their loved ones!
Despite the weather, it was still such a romantic, beautiful celebration of the absolute sweetest couple and is such a good reminder that rain isn’t always a bad thing!
