SW Colorado Wedding // Emily + Elie

An intimate outdoor wedding in Dolores, Colorado.

Emily + Elie - Part II

Wedding │ Dolores, Colorado │ 07.07.2018

It was 3:30 and the rain started. And not just a light sprinkle, but a thunderstorm. Most couples would have freaked out, but Emily & Elie remained calm and just simply said "oh well nothing we can do about it". And that laid back attitude completely made this one of the best weddings we've ever been to, let alone photographed.

That laid back attitude is also probably why the skies decided to cooperate and part ways for an hour so they could have their ceremony outside as planned. With their guests wrapped up in rain jackets and seated on rustic wooden benches, they said their I-do's under a cloudy sky with the Dolores River flowing in the background.

Thank you both for the honor of shooting your wedding. You guys truly spoiled us with how amazing you were the entire day. We hope you enjoy this sneak peak of your incredible day!
