Winter Park Wedding Photography: Ashley + Kyle

wild-horse-inn-wedding

Jason and I met Ashley and Kyle almost exactly one year before their Independence Day weekend wedding at one of our favorite wine bars, Caveau, in Denver. They were so easy to get along with (as a bonus, Kyle is a great guy to have around when ordering wine because he knows his stuff!) and we were thrilled when they chose us to be their wedding photographers. Thank you Gabby at Save the Date Events for the referral (and a smooth, perfectly planned, successful wedding day)!

Ashley and Kyle were married at the Wild Horse Inn on a gorgeous day! Ashley had vibrant wedding colors (which I love) that were amazing to photograph against the forest backdrop. The guests loved Kyle’s scotch and cigar bar during the reception. Even Jason was invited to partake in the fun and enjoyed a small glass of 12 year Macallan. The Colorado sunset was amazing just as sun set into the mountains… bathing the flowers in sunlight. We grabbed Ashely and Kyle, ran to the field and quickly snagged some wicked romantic shots (we literally had only about 2 minutes of amazing light).

To sum it up, Ashley and Kyle, we love you guys. Your wedding was beautiful to photograph, we were welcomed as part of the family, you are wonderful together and, most importantly, you taught us the fine art of “icing”. For that, we are indebted forever!

Kyle is a fun-loving screwball most of the time, but the way he looked at Ashley during their wedding ceremony – wow.

Kara with Pick Me Floral and Event Design did an absolutely fantastic job with the floralĀ arrangements!

The rules of the fine art of ‘icing’: Present (any way possible) a fellow friend with a Smirnoff Ice which he must drink on one knee, unless he’s also already in possession of another Smirnoff Ice). Ashley ‘iced’ her father by putting the Smirnoff Ice in the back of her dress. She then approached her father and asked him to do something to the back of her dress… and thus… he was ‘iced’.
