We had a great time photographing Alan and Molly’s Wedding last night in Vail. It was great to see so many familiar faces amongst the guests. Alan and Molly live in Hawaii currently but both lived in Colorado before trading the snow for sand. Everything just went so well. We missed the short rain between the time I photographed Alan & Molly together alone and the ceremony. It was the perfect early fall day in the mountains, not hot, not cold but just right.
We started the day photographing in Vail Village at the covered bridge. All of Vail Village was buzzing with the weekly farmers market. We took this in stride and went to work to create uniquely vail images with Gore creek and the covered bridge. Then we were off to Donovan Pavilion for the ceremony and reception. This is a great venue for a wedding, with a beautiful back patio for the outdoor ceremony and a spacious interior for the reception. During the ceremony surrounded by Aspen trees you could hear the trickle of Gore creek running in the background.
A really fun reception followed the ceremony with Alan’s Mom performing a Hula dance accompanied by their friends playing Hawaiian slack key guitars. The night ended with Alan and Molly leaving with all the friends and family waiving sparklers as they left Donovan Pavilion.
Alan and Molly are off for two weeks honeymoon in Australia before returning to paradise in Hawaii.
