Ashton + Andrew | Steamboat Springs Wedding Photos | Thunderhead Lodge Steamboat

March 7, 2016

I am so excited to finally share this gorgeous wedding with you!! ¬†Ashton & Andrew’s Steamboat Springs wedding photos are some of my favorites from 2015 ūüôā ¬†They were married on the lawn at the Thunderhead Lodge, on top of the mountain at the Steamboat Springs ski resort. ¬†Andrew proposed at Steamboat, so it was very fitting to have their wedding there too. ¬†They were married in June, on the longest day of the year. ¬†They had an evening ceremony, but it was still super bright and sunny out there…but oh so beautiful! ¬†Ashton and Andrew chose a vibrant purple and coral/orange color scheme. ¬†You know me, I LOVE color! ¬†All the florals were just stunning, and they even brought the color scheme into their cake design. ¬†They also had a few rustic details, as well as some ski-themed elements. ¬†Their table names were inspired by the various names of ski runs. ¬†If you are looking for chic ski-themed wedding inspiration…look no further!

We also lucked out with a gorgeous Colorado sunset!  I am so glad they wanted to slip out of their reception for a few minutes to take advantage of it.  While they were out, we got a few chairlift wedding photos as well.  This was not my first Colorado ski resort wedding, but my first time photographing at the Steamboat resort.  I just loved it!  The Thunderhead Lodge was truly transformed into a glamorous mountain wedding reception.  I hope to go back for more Colorado mountain weddings very soon.kate-spade-wedding-jewelryPreparations_0023Preparations_0029bride getting her make-up done
