When we first talked with Will & Leah, they wanted a classic Beaver Creek Wedding, but also to have a good time. You can’t go wrong with the elegance of the Ritz-Carlton, some beautiful backdrops and a side of Cardi B. With the help of Heather Allen from Table 6 Productions, their wishes came true. They pulled off a beautiful Ritz-Carlton Bachelor Gulch Wedding, but managed to do so with a whole lot of laughing, a saber sword and an over-sized cutout of their dog.
Leah started out the wedding day with bridal prep in a suite at the Ritz-Carlton. Shortly after finishing her makeup, I documented her and her bridesmaids singing their hearts out to a Cardi B track. Meanwhile, Will and the guys spent time in the cigar bar, enjoying some craft beer.
After both Will & Leah were ready for their first look, Stacy and I gave each other a smile as we knew we were in for an energetic wedding day pumped full of positive energy and endless amounts of moments to document. We found a ski run further up the mountain for their first look, overlooking Avon below. Will’s reaction to Leah in her dress was priceless.
We then arrived back at the Ritz-Carlton, greeted by hooting and hollering from their wedding party. It was time to get these two married. While we’ve shot just about every Colorado Wedding Venue possible, we’ve yet to shoot a ceremony on a ski bridge. It was as awesome as it sounds.
While most wedding ceremonies are a reflection of the couple, Will & Leah’s could not have been more personable. Officiated by his brother, it was the perfect mix of laughter, crying and exchanging of vows. These two sealed the deal with two kisses, the second coming halfway down the isle with every guest cheering them on.
After the toasts had been made, we finished off the night with the help of the Tunisia Band. These two left the dance floor only a few times, either for a refreshment or a last minute sunset photo.
