Monica + Mike // Della Terra Mountain Chateau Wedding

This wedding had to of been one of my favorites of the whole year. The beautiful colors, the rad couple that Monica and Mike are, and their mountain/bmx theme were pretty awesome. I do love these two! I actually met Mike right after I graduated college. We met while working at the Keystone Resort Ski & Ride Ski school for a season. It was one of the most exciting and fun winters of my life! Mike had a pretty awesome winter too, even though he couldn't shred due to an ACL tear early in the season. And he also wasn't quite 21 yet. Sucker ;). Anyway, when I met Monica I was so stoked that Mike had met such a a great girl, who even happened to be from his New York stomping grounds. Match made in heaven I tell you. 

When the wedding day was finally here, I got to meet both of their awesome families. I had heard so much about them, but finally they were there in the flesh. The weather that day was beautiful, and the leaves were the PERFECT shade of yellow. I couldn't have asked for better scenery and sunlight. Della Terra always delivers on that one, and I love shooting there for that reason. On top of their staff is always extremely helpful. The day was truly filled with so much love and excitement and a bunch of New Yorkers chatting away in their east coast accents which is so different for us here in Colorado. I wish we had accents! 

Anyway, thank you so much Mike and Monica!! It was so wonderful getting to spend this time with you and celebrate your wedding in such a rad way.
