Two YEARS of waiting for this Magnificent Colorado Rocky Mountain Wedding at the Della Terra Mountain Chateau…Nick and Taylor <3

Yep. You read that title correctly. I’ve been patiently waiting for Nick and Taylor’s big day for two years. I suppose they were probably as excited as I was. Maybe. I was pretty excited. 😉 When Nick, Taylor and I originally sat down in a little coffee shop off I-25 near Colorado Springs, I remember being impressed with how far they were willing to go to make a Mountain wedding happen. These two live in Pueblo, a significant drive from Rocky Mountain National Park and the Della Terra, and their family is from Chicago. We did their engagement session in the park as well, last Jun, and it was a great teaser to hanging out in the mountains together for this year.

Taylor and Nick are a hilarious couple to watch. They can sarcastically spar with the best of them! But then there’s the way that Nick looks at Taylor, and her excitement to be with him. This day was filled with moments that made me burst out laughing while photographing (Like the toast where Nick’s family pulled out toy pork chops and started squeaking them), and moments that made me go all girly mushy…like when Nick saw Taylor for the first time at their first look. Nick and Taylor, thanks for picking me to be with you on your incredibly special big day!!

My amazing wedding photographer, Shelley Paulson, took a very similar shot to this when Steven and I got married at the Della Terra. This bridge is just dreamy!
