Jesse + Serena’s Intimate Colorado Ranch Wedding

This year has been quite the adventure so far! The wedding photography GPS I was following a couple months was replaced with a compass. {I’m talking about THIS} The fear has been real, but I’m learning that somewhere in the middle of all the unknowns is where you truly find the really good stuff.  To celebrate the future, I want to share one of my favorite weddings from the past that took me on an adventure I will never forget!

I was so grateful that I was able to capture Jesse and Serena’s intimate wedding day in Colorado. Not only was it exciting to travel to such a beautiful part of the country, working with Jesse and Serena was incredible. The love and kindness that was shown by Jesse and Serena’s friends and family made a lasting impact on my life. Their connection with each other made my heart flutter with happiness, too!

Jesse and Serena met in Colorado when they started working together. When Serena moved to New York to pursue a new career opportunity they remained friends, but fate had big plans for these two. In true Colorado fashion, their romance began on a ski trip and brought them to the Jewel of Ruby Ranch, where surrounded by beauty, they solidified their love in front of friends and family.
