When Jake proposed at a winery in Tampa, Dana was completely surprised!! Once the shock wore off and they started planning, they knew they didn’t want to get married in Florida. Instead, they wanted a stunning Colorado mountain destination wedding. After looking at just a few locations, they fell in love with the gorgeous Red Rocks in the Foothills of Morrison, CO for their wedding. We were so excited when they chose us to create for their Wedding at Red Rocks Trading Post!
They set their date for early August and Dana took care of most of the details. Planning an out of state wedding can be daunting, so choosing the right team of vendors that can help you set everything up for success is super important! We like to work smarter, not harder. So, when we were going over the logistics and timeline for their day and realized we were going to be a little tight on time, we suggested Dana and Jake do a first look! They said YES!
SIDE NOTE: We LOVE first looks! They are a personal choice, and are completely up to the two of you, but we highly recommend them for a couple of reasons. First, seeing each other before the ceremony can help ease your anxiety and bring in a little calm after days of wedding planning and travel. Setting your eyes on the one you love, and how amazing both of you look, is the best way to take the stress down a notch for the rest of the festivities! Another benefit of the first look is now that you have seen each other, we can take all of the family and group photos before the ceremony(when everyone is looking their best). With these photos checked off the list earlier on, you’ll have more time to spend with your guests in between the ceremony and at the reception!! Win – Win!
When we saw Dana for the first time we were immediately floored by those gorgeous and glam curls! Shout out to Dulce Diem Hair & Makeup for that fabulousness! They day went off without a hitch and we are so honored they trusted us to capture these important moments for their wedding at Red Rocks! Their wedding photography and highlight film truly showcase the love, romance, silliness and amazingness of their day ❤️
