YMCA of the Rockies Wedding | Ariana + Richard

Posted On | July 19, 2021

Ariana + Richard fell in love holding hands, listening to the Red Hot Chili Peppers at a music festival.

When they’re not working, they love camping, going to concerts, catching up on movies and, most of all, spending time with their son and two dogs.

When they thought of what their perfect wedding day looked like it involved their close family, their son, dogs and best friends. On an unusually warm summer afternoon in Estes Park, these two said their vows with Ariana’s brother officiating. Their son waited at the front of the aisle as Ariana walked down the trail with her dad. Afterward, all the kids and family blew bubbles to celebrate the new Mr. + Mrs.

At a small reception after the ceremony, their family shared well wishes, rang little bells in celebration and Ariana + Richard cut into their s’mores cake and donuts.

As the sun began to set behind the mountains, the three of us drove into Rocky Mountain National Park to catch some incredible wildflowers and views from the top of Trail Ridge Road.

I’ve photographed on top of Trail Ridge road a million and one times, but it still gives me chills every. single. time. Tell me that’s not a view that’d give you chills?!?!?
