Rachel  & Nathan |  March 9th  |  Breckenridge, Colorado

From the photographer, Sarah Joelle:
Rachel and Nathan planned an intimate March wedding hoping for snow… and they got their wish! It snowed ALL day creating a winter wonderland for the backdrop! Their wedding took place at a private family residence surrounded by snow-capped evergreens. Gold and silver hues were consistent though out the decor and styling with sparkly details and shimmering metallics. In their relationship Rachel is the “song bird” and Nathan is an “owl” so there were bird details as well… including the birdcage and decorative twig balls symbolic of birds nests. The day was filled with joy and happy tears…it was clear that this couple was loved well by their friends and family! And as the sun was setting everyone sat down at a candle lit table with a beautiful spread of gourmet cheeses, olives, and Spanish wines with dinner to follow.

From the bride, Rachel:
Our winter wonderland of a wedding was an intimate affair. Every decision, from the food, to my hair clip, had meaning.

Before the ceremony started, I gave Nathan a journal of my  thoughts and prayers that I’ve been collecting since I was a child, praying for my future spouse.  SarahJoelle07

We loved playing outside in the snow snapping our pictures.  It was a blast!

The reception was aglow with warmth from the candles and love that was felt by all.

My advice: Don’t sweat the small stuff, and it’s mostly all small.
