The air at 9000 feet is always pretty crisp, and it wasn’t any different for Lindsey & Rob’s sunny Colorado wedding up at Steamboat Springs this fall. Their guests arrived at the mountain ceremony site via gondola and were treated to breathtaking views while the couple said their vows to one another. Not that anyone was looking at anything other than the happy couple, of course ;-). Talk about a breath of fresh air.
Our wish for every couple is that they have a wedding that feels like them where their friends and family can’t imagine them marrying any other way. Steamboat fit them to a tee, reflective of their adventures together (she hikes 14’ers in a day for fun, and their travels have taken them from Australia to Dubai. You might remember them from their relaxed Boulder County Fair and CU engagement session this Summer–we all had such a blast (plus some cotton candy). Check out a few of our favorite moments and images from their wedding, and of course their complete gallery. The password is Lindsey’s maiden name and is case-sensitive. Enjoy!

B’s faves of A’s:
It was such a scenic spot photographing the Steamboat valley below, with L&R’s wedding site behind us.
Even at 9000 feet, the mountains rose up and to the right of their wedding ceremony.
How cool is it to get a private, surprise wedding gondola for the ride down the mountain? It was just the right timing to photograph L&R as they sped down toward their wedding reception.
Don’t you just love these late-afternoon shadows? A wedding photographer’s dream.
A’s faves of B’s:
A gaggle of groomsmen.
We loved photographing the wedding ceremony at Steamboat Springs, with mountains on one side and a long valley down the other.
The sun’s so bright at Steamboat Springs even the dogs wear shades.

Some of our favorite moments from your wedding day are:
Your uncle’s quiet moments, Lindsey, stolen away from arriving guests as he prepared to officiate your ceremony. Lindsey, your dad’s emotions as he spoke during your ceremony, and the comfort your mom offered as he returned to his seat to witness the rest. In an only-in-Colorado-moment, a ready-made welcome committee of ultra-marathon race fans cheering you as you walked from the gondola to the start of your reception. Eschewing a more traditional (and some might say boring!) way to feed each other your first piece of cake, you instead tossed the pieces up in the air and each caught them in your mouths. Impressive! The peacefulness you had around your first dance. It was as if you were just lost in each other. Not sure what game it was, but the intensity with which your college friends kept their fingers intently on that beer was fun to watch.
Congratulations, you two and we look forward to sharing a beer sometime soon!
