Charis and Josh had been visiting Crested Butte together for 5 years and each time were completely blown away by the beauty. Their intimate ceremony took place in the peak wildflower season, and it included only 6 people - myself as the photographer, an officiant, and the bride's brother and his girlfriend. We spent the late-afternoon doing their first look in a scenic river valley, with plenty of sweet, and tender moments as they explored along the hillside. Our next stop was at the base of Mount Crested Butte, surrounded completely by stunning scenery. Charis and Josh shared their vows, with the mountains as their witness. They shared a champagne toast and a lovely cake designed to look like the trunk of an aspen tree. Afterwards, an adventure through the ski-area terrain took us to some breath-taking views just as an epic sunset provided the perfect backdrop to a happily-ever-after.
