Erin + Andrew Black Canyon Inn Wedding // Estes Park Wedding Photographer // Colorado Elopement Photographer

Awe, it was a day filled with epic true love. I was so excited when Andrew and Erin inquired with me last year about shooting their wedding at Black Canyon Inn in Estes Park. Not only do I love that venue, but I just loved everything that Erin and Andrew are about. Not only does Erin love pizza and donuts (see the wedding theme), but she is also passionate about living life on the bright side. I don't know if I have met a gal like her with such a sweet and spunky soul for a long time. Erin and Andrew are also big crossfitters, which I also love ;). 

The wedding day was beautiful. We had the perfect amount of clouds and the perfect amount of sun. It was a chilly morning but once the day got rolling it couldn't have been more perfect in terms of weather. The fall leaves had already started to turn a little, and the fresh mountain air was invigorating. The day had finally come. A cool little fact about Erin and Andrew, but Andrew actually asked Erin's father for her hand in marriage only a few weeks after they had met. A true story of when you know, you know. 

What Andrew loves about Erin: I love her wonderful sense of humor and her gigantic heart. She even cares about strangers, and she treats everyone equally. I love her eyes, her beautiful smile and when she laughs. I love her strength and her perseverance - she is much stronger than she gives herself credit for. I could go on and on about Erin, but her heart and faith in God will always stand out to me.

What Erin loves about Andrew: I love that he supports me in EVERYTHING I do. He believes in me more than I believe in myself and encourages me to always stay true to myself and to God. He is the most patient and helpful person I know. Not only does he help me with every day chores and just life in general, but he helps EVERYONE! Anything anyone needs, he is the first to offer. I love that about him. He works relentlessly in pursuit of his goals. He ALWAYS opens my door for me, and he loves me for me... I have never had to pretend to be anyone I wasn't. He has made me a better and more patient person. I wake up every day and thank God for him. I still can't believe he picked me to be his wife!

So glad I met the both of you this year, and so excited to get to know you guys better as your little Colorado adventure happens :).
