Tammy & Greg's Wedding at the YMCA Snow Mountain Ranch

Every year over Labor Day weekend our schedule is busy with weddings and this year was no exception. Our wedding weekend began on Saturday with Tammy & Greg's wedding up at the YMCA of the Rockies Snow Mountain Ranch. It's been sad to see how much the area near Winter Park & Granby has been affected by the beetle kill but even with all the dead trees in the area the ceremony site had to have had one of the most beautiful backdrops for a wedding. At the edge of the hill with a wooden cross against the mountains it definitely makes it up there on my list of favorite wedding locations. Michelle got some great images with her wide angle lens of what the guests saw during the ceremony- it was awesome!
Our day started with a few shots of the guys getting ready before we headed down to the girls cabin. At first the weather was perfect until right as we set up Greg for their "first look" as Tammy walked up behind him and the wind came in with force trying to bring in the rain with it but fortunately after just a few big raindrops the rain held for the rest of the day. Tammy was such a good sport about the whole thing and said "that's just what comes with an outdoor mountain wedding". Michelle has been feeling so much better these last few weeks that she was able to photograph also during the times where I didn't need her assistance. I thought it would be fun to show a few shots that we took at the same time from different perspectives. We had a great time with Tammy and Greg and are so grateful for the opportunity to capture their amazing day. God Bless!

Here's when Tammy & Greg first saw each other before the wedding- ending in a kiss:

I love this picture of the two of them laughing:

Aren't their pet guinea pigs so cute?!:

There was this cool pile of dead trees on the side of the road heading to the reception and made for some cool photos:

Here's the shot I took of them sitting in the field:

And here's the same shot from Michelle's perspective:

Here's another one I took of Tammy:

And Michelle's version of the same shot:

Got this shot right as one of the guest's flashes went off which made for a pretty cool picture:
