Colorado Mountain Wedding Photographer - Vail Wedding by Callie Riesling Photography
Vail. That gorgeous town snuggled up right at the base of an even more gorgeous mountain. Vail. Named the 'King of American Ski Resorts' by Forbes. World famous Vail. Although the winter is what made Vail famous, I think the summer months deserve some major attention. Thankfully, my bride and groom thought the same thing - even though winter is what originally brought the groom, Michael to Colorado. Michael grew up in Minnesota. As a kid, his family would come to Vail to ski... often. So Vail gained a very special spot in his heart. The majority of his heart is taken by another though... Her name is Rebecca. His beautiful bride. Guys, this Colorado Native was the perfect bride on her wedding day. She looked gorgeous, she was easy going, she laughed all day long and teared up at the beauty of their ceremony at the Vail Marriott Mountain Resort. She even planned to have her hair and makeup touched up after their first look because she didn't want to be worried about her hair falling out of place while we photographed their bridal shots at the summit. This couple was up for anything. They hiked around the mountain with me, they climbed up on the rocky outcroppings, they laughed with their whole selves and trusted me. Please enjoy their wedding gallery! Friends and family (and fans of their wedding), don't be afraid to leave a little bit of love for them in the comments!
