I had the pleasure of meeting Kelsey and Ian at another client’s wedding in July 2022. At that time, they were newly engaged and just embarking on their wedding planning journey. It was only two weeks after that wedding when I received a message from Kelsey, and I couldn’t contain my excitement knowing they wanted to work with me for their fall engagement session and Vail wedding. They immediately struck me as a genuinely wonderful couple, and I knew we would have a fantastic time together.
Fast forward to the fall of 2023, and here we are on their wedding day. Kelsey and Ian were among the last in their friend group to tie the knot. They brought so much fun, energy, and support to the celebration. I vividly recall their first look on top of Vail Mountain. They paused to soak in the breathtaking scenery and shared an intimate moment, with Kelsey whispering, “It’s finally our turn,” as she was simultaneously choking up.
This day was not only beautiful, but it was overflowing with love from both family and friends, as well as the couple themselves. Kelsey and Ian share a profound love and immense respect for each other. When you add that to the stunning natural beauty of their Vail, Colorado wedding in the fall, it truly became one of the most exquisite mountain weddings I’ve had the privilege of documenting. It was an honor to be part of their special day.
“Whitney OH MY GOSH. We’ve laughed, we’ve cried, we can’t stop smiling!! These are everything we could ask for and more!!! I’m just so happy we worked with you. Our wedding party is going nuts over your work!”
Kelsey and Ian’s playful Vail wedding has me thrilled for couples considering this as their Colorado wedding location.
