Taylor + Tyler
One of the longest anticipated weddings on my list for this year was Taylor and Tyler’s Aspen wedding at T-Lazy-7 Ranch. Booked over two years ago, I have been following along as they bought little details for the big day, captured their incredible engagement photos at Maroon Bells, and of course witnessed and helped them maneuver the multiple new dates through all of the global events of the past year. As the day drew closer, I felt the excitement and anticipation more than most weddings, and I’m sure they felt the same way even moreso!
I met up with them at their condos in Snowmass Village for getting ready, and already everything about the day was beautiful. Aspen Glam was finishing up Taylor’s hair and makeup and I got to play around with all the little details I had heard about or seen online through their planning journey. They had gotten the most beautiful ring boxes, and every piece of paper goods was perfect. After everyone was ready to go for the day, we made our way to their first look location at Maroon Bells.
Tyler and Taylor shared a perfect first look with the bells in the background. I think Tyler had something in his eye or something… it couldn’t have been seeing his beautiful bride for the first time after all this time waiting or anything! The wedding party had some fun with photos and before we knew it, it was time to head back to T-Lazy-7 for the ceremony.
Their ceremony was in the meadow at the ranch with Pyramid Peak rising on the horizon. Taylor spoke about how easily and immediately Tyler seemed to fit in with her friends and family, and Tyler recounted an epic hunting trip that everyone in the crowd seemed to have heard about too. Their love for one another was apparent in every moment of the day, and especially as they shared their vows and rings together.
After the ceremony was an epic reception, complete with custom cigar bar, a magnificent cake and macarons, touches of their dog Brody scattered in the décor, and the most beautiful table settings. The guests were there to party after waiting so long to celebrate such an amazing couple. Taylor and Tyler, thank you again for sharing your stunning day with me!
