“Crested Butte is an especially beautiful place to say “I do”. The golden aspen groves, warm temperatures, picturesque mountains and small town feel make it one of the best locations in Colorado to visit during the fall season. Alisha and Will are both outdoor enthusiasts who enjoy backcountry skiing, mountain biking, hiking, and camping. Over the years, Crested Butte had become their favorite mountain town. They were so happy to share this special place with their closest family and friends.
Their wedding planner, Jes Tilton, owner of Knotted Proposals & Events, helped them find the perfect wedding venue and put together the best vendor team imaginable for their day. The unsuspecting Rocky Mountain Biological Laboratory has a beautiful space to host weddings but only during the Fall season! The rest of the year, these facilities are either snowed in (November-May) or are filled with students and scientists from late (June to mid-August). Talk about a unique place to have your wedding! The lead wedding Photographer, Jillian Murphy, owner of J Murphy Photos LLC captured Alisha & Will’s wedding day perfectly. She was sure to include everything from the stunning landscapes around Crested Butte to the little details and decor that Jes and all of the amazing vendors worked so hard to put together. The ceremony was held just outside of the reception facility, with a gorgeous mountain backdrop and golden light flooding the scene.
Shortly after the ceremony, Alisha & Will hopped in Jillian’s car and drove through the valley to the perfect aspen grove for gorgeous golden hour portraits. The grand entrance, dinner, speeches, wild outdoor dance party and sparkler exit made for the best time. Throughout the day and night, Horsefeather Mobile Bar was serving up some of the best cocktails and draft beers for the party! Be sure to check out all other vendors that brought Alisha and Will’s wedding day vision to life including HMUA, florists, bakery, catering and more!
“Prior to their wedding day, I had done a little backcountry day trip with Alisha and a separate sunrise hike with both Alisha and Will for their engagement photos. They are both super laid back and a joy to be around. Honestly, such an awesome couple and their wedding day perfectly reflected that. As a wedding photographer, you cant ask for anything better”
