I’m so thrilled to share Miranda and Shane’s Estes Park Wedding! Della Terra Mountain Chateau is always classic Colorado perfection, and this particular summer day was as beautiful as they come.
I loved that Miranda and Shane allowed for so much time for getting ready before their ceremony. They were both able to take their time getting ready without being rushed, and Miranda’s calmness really shines in her photos. As soon as they were both ready, we headed outside for their first look which is always so full of anticipation. Although I don’t push couples whether or not to do first looks, they’re such a perfect way to get out some wedding day jitters before the ceremony. Of course, there are always couples who dream of seeing their fiancé/spouse for the first time on their wedding day as they’re walking down the aisle, and that’s ok too!
After Miranda and Shane’s first look, we had plenty of time for lots of “romantics” which I admit are my favorite photos on wedding days. They’re a quiet time when brides and grooms get to focus on each other, and we get to create gorgeous portraits so full of love. I had a really hard time narrowing down which photos to share!
Really, I can’t say enough how much I loved Miranda and Shane’s focus on what was most important during their wedding day! They were such a joy to be around, and their love for each other, their families, and God was so evident! One of the most memorable moments was when the DJ accidentally played the wrong first dance song. You should read about it from Miranda herself, but essentially, he played a really fast, rock-in-roll song rather than the sentimental one she had chosen! Miranda and Shane laughed through it all rather than letting it dampen their day. I can’t say enough how much I love these two!
