A Wedding at The Eagle’s Nest

They say lightning doesn’t strike twice in the same place. But in the case of Melissa & John, it did! From our very first photo session with them months ago, we’ve been able to create some stunning and very “different” sorts of images for this unique couple. So we couldn’t be happier with how well their wedding day photos turned out. Melissa herself looked more beautiful than ever. John was right there for her, just as he’s always been in their years together. They chose to see one another before their ceremony and then spent some time with us for some fun and romantically-dosed portraits. We had a perfect rhythm with these two, like we knew we would.

John was a handsome guy the entire day. Melissa was all joy, effervescence and SHOES!

Melissa decorated the Eagle’s Nest tables with feathers, stones and candles, with beautiful blue glowing globes suspended from the ceiling, and twinkle lights lining the entire room. Very festive.

Immediately after the ceremony concluded, a heavy thunderstorm covered our mountains. As it moved off into the valley below, everyone was entertained by spectacular bolts of lightening. What an over-the-top way to close the day for this amazing couple!

Their entire wedding gallery of photos will be posted soon in the “Client Proofs” section of our main website. We love hearing from you, so please click on the “Comments” link above to leave your thoughts for Melissa & John, or even for us.

  • Sharon & John Ginda - We attended Melissa and John”s Wedding and had a great time. The bride was beautiful and the groom handsome of course. The weather was unbelievable, when the Judge was talking about marriage sometimes being stormy (something like that) and that loud clap of thunder came, it was fantastic. It could not have been planned like that ! The food was delicious, felt like we ate all night long.
    Thank you for a very good time. We can’t wait to see all the pictures !July 30, 2009 – 7:25 PM

  • Ulysses - Thank you, Cathy! It really was an amazing day, wasn’t it? Jenni and I were completely bowled over by how great they both looked, and were so happy to see so many of their friends and family around them. We can’t get over how perfect the day was for them. We’re working hard to get their gallery of photos ready, so you can expect to see them all soon. Thanks for leaving a note! 🙂July 27, 2009 – 10:44 PM

  • Cathy Cosman - Just saw the pictures you posted on your blog, can’t wait for all the pictures to be posted, it was one of the most beautiful storybook weddings that I have been to and Melissa and John were truly beautiful.
