Carol + Kirt have known each other since high school but went their separate ways following graduation. They reconnected several years ago and are elated to be spending the rest of their lives together.

Rustic Colorado Mountain Elopement

Kirt is so warm, Carol so sweet. And, there was an incredible sense of contentment and assurance in their ceremony.

It was simple, charming along the banks of the Big Thompson with those most important to the couple.

Soon after dancing, we escaped into the woods for a few portraits and to give the bride and groom a minute to just be. There’s nothing quite like that Holy-Smokes-Just-Married look.

Carol + Kirt,

I say this about almost every wedding I am invited to photography, but – Thank you. Thank you for allowing me to witness the beginning of your marriage, the exchanging of your vows. I believe marriage matters, commitment matters, and seeing the resolution in each of your eyes was beautifully uplifting and encouraging to me. I know this is a relationship you may have thought would never come, but it’s here. And, it’s a phenomenal example of patience and commitment. Thank you.

May God richly bless your marriage.
