Crested Butte Real Wedding
Forrest and I met through mutual friends in Boulder where I went to school. From the second we started hanging out we were basically inseparable. Forrest found excuses to stay in Boulder as long as possible and I escaped to Irwin (where Forrest lived) as much as possible. Ultimately, Forrest had to move to California for work and I figured out how to finish school online so I could be with him. Over the last six years, we have realized how much we love being with one another. Being outdoors in beautiful places, whether it is on a tropical beach with fruity cocktails or in the wilderness hiking to a high alpine lake is our happy place. While we were visiting home in Crested Butte for the Fourth of July, we took a hike up to Green Lake and Forrest found the perfect place in the middle of Ruby to propose. It was an amazing day in one of our favorite places that we will cherish forever.

Kaitlyn & Forrest wanted their day to be intimate, relaxed, free-flowing, and surrounded by the beauty of nature plus the love of their closest friends and family. We’re not exaggerating when we say that this day was PERFECT. The weather was a sky full of soft clouds, and mild temperatures for early October in Crested Butte. The autumn leaves were at their peak, and the colors were insanely beautiful. Plus the vendors/artists that came together for this event really brought some unique and elegant style to the tented wedding. The vibe of this couple was so laid-back and they couldn’t take their eyes off each other the entire day! They had an adventurous first-look with just the two of them at Woods Walk and at Lake Irwin, and then the rest of the festivities took place at Horse Ranch Park. Nearly every member of the wedding party and families stood up to give a toast to them. There were so many hilarious stories and tears of joy shared. It’s obvious how much everyone present had such a close personal connection to the couple. The intimacy of this gorgeous wedding day can truly be felt through viewing the moments we captured.
