Notes from the photographer,Michele with one L:
The Black Canyon Inn in Estes Park provided this destination wedding with sweeping Rocky Mountain views. When they checked in to their cabins, there was still snow on the ground from a recent snowstorm. But in true Colorado fashion, a day of sunshine melted the snow, and their wedding day couldn't have been more beautiful! I asked Eric and Ashley what they most wanted to remember about their wedding day ten years from now. Eric said he would always remember their First Look. He was so full of excitement to see his bride, and spending those extra few minutes with Ashley alone before the ceremony is something he will never forget. Ashley will always remember their first dance, because their song, Future Days by Pearl Jam, has always meant so much to them. They both knew for a long time that they'd be dancing to that song at their reception! Ashley also surprised Eric with some time alone at the end of the night. After everyone went outside to form a line to their getaway car, the DJ put on a special song so the two of them could share one last dance before leaving one their honeymoon. Of all the beautiful details of the day, the most important one to Eric was his grandmother's bracelet. Ashley found it the week before the wedding and shined it up to wear on their most special day. Having their friends and family together with them in such a magical place was truly what made Ashley's wedding dreams come true! This day was everything she had hoped for and more.
