YMCA of the Rockies | Estes Park, Colorado | Avery & Logan

There may not be anything as beautiful as Colorado in the fall, right around the time the leaves start turning.  Avery and Logan’s wedding was timed perfectly to capture the golden Aspen leaves and last remnants of warm weather.  I knew I would like these two from the moment we first spoke on the phone; I usually suggest we meet for a cup of coffee, but they suggested a beer at Dry Dock instead, which happens to be a favorite place for me and my husband.  Their love of a good brew continued throughout their wedding.  They rented a cabin for the bridal party to get ready and, as usually happens, when I arrived the women were fussing about in the bathroom while the men drank beer and played foosball in the basement.  They poured a black & tan for their unity ceremony instead of the usual sand or candles.  They named their tables after different microbreweries in Colorado and had a fantastic assortment on hand to offer their guests.  There were a lot of unique touches and personal moments throughout the day, but for me the most beautiful moment was probably when Avery’s flower girl came sprinkling petals down the aisle… and it was her grandmother!  Perhaps it was because I had lost my own grandmother just the month prior, but I was seriously struggling to push back the tears.  It was a heart-felt ceremony, a fun party, and a memorable day all around.
