Grand Lake Lodge Mountain Wedding in Colorado
Wedding Photographer’s Thoughts
Where do I even begin to share about this day? I’ve dreamed about this day, where I adventure with a rad couple all around Rocky Mountain National Park just couple days before their Colorado Wedding day for their Trail Ridge Road, RMNP engagement session area as they celebrate their love and connection. If you happen to miss it here is the entire engagement blog post! And the fact that it was Summer +Jordan who I was able to live this dream with, well, they couldn’t have been anymore of a perfect fit. They absolutely love Colorado mountains, hike a ton, I mean that with every ounce of my heart, because I have so much love for these two.
Couple’s Love Tale
Summer + Jordan made the trek out from Ohio to visit Grand Lake, CO where distant peaks loom in all directions, while fragrant wildflowers blanket the tundra in mid-summer and the hummingbirds hovering around us all day long created unforgettable memories for the two. Grand Lake is sits at an elevation of 8,369 feet and derives its name from the lake on whose shores it is situated:
Grand Lake, the largest natural body of water in Colorado.The couple said “I do” overlooking the soul of Colorado. Best Colorado spot ever, I right? The gloomy and rainy weather couldn’t hold us down as we explored the Grand Lake area and rocky edges of the mountain views. I was so excited about all of this magic that we kept shooting and adventuring until we couldn’t, because there wasn’t any daylight left.
Give me an inch, I’ll take you a mile. And I wanted at least 10 more miles with these two!
