A Rocky Mountain Proposal

From the Photographer, Brianne of Captivated Photography
Corbyn collaborated every detail with Captivated Photography to carry out this incredibly special proposal to Caroline. From scoping out the location in the foothills of Boulder days before the proposal, to picking out the bush in which we would hide behind, to where he would lay their picnic blanket, Corbyn had every thoughtful detail planned to a tee for this most perfect proposal to the love of his life, Caroline. The proposal was pulled off without a hitch, and watching the surprise and love in Caroline’s eyes as Corbyn made a promise to love her forever was absolutely incredible. It was an incredibly sweet, special, and intimate moment spent between these two, and the start to their brand new life together. We could not have been more excited to have had the chance to capture this big moment, and we look forward to their Winter wedding this December!

A Touch of Vintage Flair

Carrie & John |  February 16th | Cascade, Colorado

From the bride, Carrie:
Our wedding day was a beautiful, Colorado Saturday with bright sunshine and no wind.  A perfect day to get married!! I took the advice of many friends that said, “just slow down and enjoy it,” and “just capture the moments and don’t worry about the little things.”  I’m glad I didn’t fret the small stuff.  John and I both had waited a long time to get married and we wanted to cherish the day and really “feel it.”  We didn’t want the day to come and go in such a breeze that we didn’t get to capture the beauty and joy in it, and lucky for us, it didn’t.  It was lovely in every imaginable way.

I have always loved vintage postcards.  Instead of giving each table an assigned number, we thought, why not give the tables an assigned place where John and I spent time together and places we have memories together?  We had 8 tables, each with some of our favorite places.  For example, there was Sausalito (where we were engaged); San Luis Valley in Colorado (where John’s family ranch was always a favorite camping trip); fabulous Denver (where I lived for a year and half while we were dating and where we have many memories), Colorado Springs (where we met), etc. AshleyDurham11 AshleyDurham12

A Backyard Country Romance

Nicole & Matt  |  June 15th  |  Littleton, Colorado

From the bride, Nicole:
Almost everything for our wedding was homemade. I liked the idea of cowboy boots, wood decorations and candles. Then I just put them all together and some how it all looked great! Rayna McGinnis Photography Rayna McGinnis Photography RaynaMcGinnis03 RaynaMcGinnis04 RaynaMcGinnis05 RaynaMcGinnis06

I loved our welcome doors. It was fun to see them opened and closed for my walk down the aisle. I felt like I was entering an outdoor church.


At the beginning of the aisle we had whiskey barrels with baby’s breath and a sign saying “our story begins here”. In addition, we had along each side of the aisle, pictures of us growing up then at the end a picture of us together.

My advice:  Enjoy every minute at your wedding, it goes by fast!
