I love winter weddings in the mountains! There is something so magical about the stillness that the snow covered peaks creates. Megan and Andrew had a beautiful wedding at the lovely Taharaa Mountain Lodge.
This is one of those awesome times when having a second shooter is super helpful. While I was hanging out with the ladies my second shooter was able to capture Andrew and his groomsmen hanging out before the ceremony. They seemed to be having quite a good time!
It was quite cold for their wedding day BUT I am so glad we decided to brave the snow and wind to have their first look outside. It was such a beautiful moment and you wouldn’t even guess they were standing in 5 inches of snow and freezing by how joyful they both look… Well maybe Andrew looks a tad cold in this first image but the second he sees Megan he lights right up!
Just minutes before she said i do…
It’s always fun to see what couples will do when they enter into their reception. Megan and Andrew were all smiles as they danced their way in and were joyfully welcomed by everyone that anxiously awaited their arrival!
Toasts are one of my favorite parts of a wedding day… It’s one of the few times that I can get to know my couples from the perspective of their closest friends and family. It’s raw and candid. I love it! Megan and Andrew are so loved and respected by the people in their lives. They are admired and cherished.
Of course the dancing is always fun! Jay with Standing Room Only is the BEST!
THANK YOU so much Megan and Andrew for inviting me into your story and allowing me document your most special day! It was a true joy!
Thank you to my amazing second shooter and father Dave Russell. I miss working with him at every wedding so this was a true treat!!
