Bella Vista Estates wedding – Steamboat Springs, CO – Marissa and Kelsey!

i met marissa and kelsey over a beer in seattle in october of 2019 – they were planning a wedding here in seattle and i was thrilled that they picked me for their photography! then covid changed all of those plans and they moved to colorado (insert sad trombone sound here). so, i was super stoked when they reached out about my coming to photograph their new day in steamboat springs!  bella vista estates is so beautiful and the view is spectacular. we started the day hopping between each group of friends getting ready…

their sweet pup hudson hung out with marissa’s crew a bit – she showed off her ‘high five’ and gave the cutest pup faces ever…

kelsey’s shoes were so cool that they needed their own beam of light.

kelsey gave her folks a first look after dressing – i love it when dads tear up.

the tree lined drive was a perfect spot for the couple’s first look with each other…

they grabbed their gorgeous bouquets from Linden Co. – so different yet perfectly matched…

wedding party joined us for the view and some photo fun (hudson too!)

her dad is so proud of her…
