Sapphire Point Overlook Wedding - Elaina & Benjie

One of my favorite parts of weddings is the emotions you get to witness. There’s always an abundance of love, and for Elaina and Benjie it was no different.

We started our day at the Chalet du Soleil, then headed over to Sapphire Point for the ceremony. It was short and sweet, with Colorado’s magnificent mountains looming in the distance. We then stole away to Boreas Pass for just a few shenanigans with their closest friends, and then back to the Chalet for the reception.

Their party was one for the books; it included one of the most beautiful moments I’ve ever witnessed. Elaina’s father passed away years before, so she opted to share her dance with his family members after enjoying one of his favorite beers. While dusk settled over distant peaks, we listened to the bride’s sister serenade us with an acoustic guitar, and even had a bear make a special appearance.

Here are some of my favorite images of the day.
