Whenever people ask what has been our favorite place to shoot, we’re never sure what to say. There are so many venues and cities that we love, and we have wonderful memories of them all. But now when people ask, we will say Telluride – hands down!
It’s easy to see why Alexis & Matt chose to have their destination wedding in Telluride. The town is historic, charming, and the people are friendly. It’s surrounded by mountains, perfect for hiking and bike riding in the summer and skiing in the winter. It’s the kind of place that you look around, in awe of its beauty, and you know that God must have smiled after it was created! It’s a natural work of art!
There’s something very sacred about saying your vows from 10,000 feet. Like you are literally proclaiming from the mountaintops for all the world to hear – “I do!”
Alexis and Matt’s wedding was one of those events where everything just seemed to come together. The decor was amazing, the 18 miniature cakes were so unique and special, the planner was fantastic, and best of all, the threat of rain never materialized, allowing the wedding to proceed outside at the St. Sophia overlook, maybe one of the most majestic views anyone will ever see.
The best part, though, was the people. Everyone had a great time helping celebrate Alexis and Matt’s union. They enjoyed fine food, drinks, and dancing to the sounds of Deja Blu at the rustic-chic Allred’s Restaurant, which itself had a great view of the mountains and Telluride.
When Alexis and Matt finally disembarked from the gondola back at the base of the mountain, everyone was waiting to give them one last cheer and a rousing send-off to finish off a spectacular day.
With Alexis and Matt back from their surprise honeymoon (Matt didn’t tell Alexis where he was taking her!), we know they’re anxious to see their photos! So please enjoy Part I of their amazing destination wedding and be sure to come back for Part II tomorrow!
