The Aspen Mountain Wedding of Sam Bradford and Emma Lavy is still one of my all-time favorites! Not only is the couple so so cool (and gorgeous), but the mountain top wedding venue is totally out of a magazine!
While I’d previously photographed weddings in Colorado, this was my first Aspen Mountain Wedding. I pray it won’t be my last, because I felt so inspired throughout the day because of the natural beauty surrounding me.
Emma is a perfect Benny Bride. She has a kind heart, style, great taste, an adoring family, and appreciates photography. I love when a bride appreciates the importance of having a world-class photographer to capture her wedding day. I was honored to a part of something so special.
This emotional first look gets me every time I look at it. What a special moment on top of Aspen Mountain to kick off the wedding celebration.
Y’all. This view. Oh my word. It’s just about as beautiful of a wedding backdrop ever created. The Little Nell is an amazing venue, and Aspen Mountain looks like heaven.
As sunset hit, I knew I wanted to take the bride and groom out for some more wedding portraits. I’m so happy I did!
The shot below is one of my all-time favorite wedding portraits. It’s everything.
And this fun bridesmaid picture is full of style and attitude. I think most sisters would love to have a photo like this. Right?
After a great party, the couple left the reception through two lines of sparklers as they ascended down Aspen Mountain to begin their new life together as husband and wife.
