Intimate Private Estate Wedding in the Denver Foothills

filed in

“In the end, only three things matter: how much you loved, how gently you lived and how gracefully you let go of things not meant for you.” – Buddha

One August afternoon near the evergreen mountains of Denver, Colorado, Tiffany and Skyler spent a few hours with us celebrating their love story in a way that only a couple set to marry in this tumultuous year can. Their love is a gentle love grown over years of friendship, and as I have seen, their love is resilient in the face of learning to let go this year.

Even at the moment of this quiet celebration, the mountains normally so vivid on a blue sky Colorado day are drowned in the haze of a summer full of wildfires. When Tiffany called me to let me know their wedding date had been fully moved to next year, my heart broke for this kindhearted couple. She quickly shifted her focus to the joy of still celebrating their love story this year with their bridal portraits the weekend prior to her original wedding date. She and Skyler truly embody a love that is set for a lifetime.

From a first look in an Aspen grove to dancing along the mountain vista near sunset, Tiffany and Skyler’s private estate bridal session could not have been more perfect. As the sun began to set along the hazy mountain range, I knew we would join again next year to celebrate their full wedding. Yet, I felt that this afternoon couldn’t have been more perfect for this incredible couple. See you again in 2021 for the full celebration, Tiffany and Skyler!
