I met Erik and Christie for breakfast and coffee the morning after photographing their friend’s wedding last year, and I knew right away that these two were made for each other. I always love hearing each of my couple’s love story and how they got engaged. When they told me their adorable engagement story it came along with a slideshow visual of blood-shot eyed, snot face crying selfies of them the for days and days after Erik proposed at home.
I absolutely ADORE the fact that Erik was full of so much emotion as Christie walked down the aisle. They decided they would not do a first look on their wedding day, which for them I am so happy they did because those moments at the aisle had ALL the feels!
This gorgeous wedding was taken place in the sweet mountain town of Vail, CO. Now, when most people think of a Vail wedding a large picture of ski slopes, mountain range landscapes, and open skies come to mind. Well in case you didn’t know, in June the ski lift isn’t open yet. Bummer right?….. actually, NOPE! We concentrated on the little details of Vail Village instead and thus created my opinion on the “sweetest Vail wedding” ever. There is so much beauty around us, it really takes that extra moment to realize we are living in it every day. It’s true the grass isn’t greener on the other side!
Congratulations to Mr. and Mrs. Erik Forrester! I am so blessed to be a part of making your wedding day so special <3
