plan a modern wedding in the middle of the country

So, last week I spent some time in my favorite state (Colorado) with some of my favorite people.  During my time there, I was able to catch up with a great friend and get a look into her passion (photography).  She shared the work of a fantastic Colorado-based photographer and that’s when I fell in love with this.


I would give my left arm to get married there. Actually, I would give both arms and both legs.

In case you’re wondering, I have already inquired with the location regarding future use for a vow renewal. Le swoon (big time).


  1. i hate myself for saying this, but there is always time to change your location. no invites have been sent.

    @Clary Oh, girl, I will definitely call you! One of my best friends is James’ current intern!

    @Courtney I love Colorado. Period. I encourage you to move! (I have a strong love affair with the state).

    Just the other day there were some really cheap flights to CO from CA and I thought about how if only you and the FI lived there I could just hop on over for a visit! Move soon!
