Paige and John had one of the best first looks I've ever shot. If you're on the fence about doing a first look watch this video at least until you see it. John's face is priceless when he see's his bride for the first time. First looks can be great, especially if you tend to get nervous. I've never seen anything calm the nerves like seeing your bride or groom before the wedding. Also, if you want to attend your cocktail hour definitely do a first look, otherwise your photos will take up all that time. Some think it's not as romantic as seeing your bride walking down the aisle for the first time. However, it is often more romantic since you are alone.
Paige and John's ceremony was held in the garden of the Manor Vail Lodge. Their cocktail and reception followed at the Donovan Pavilion all located in Vail, Colorado. Their wedding could not have been timed better with the aspen leaves at their peak. Bursting yellow in the mountains. It was a spectacular day filled with joy and love.
Huge thanks to wedding planner Erical Sarell Weddings & Events for making the day run smoothly and on time.
