This couple has been one of my absolute favorites over the last year, Dakota was the first bride who found me solely from Instagram and I was so pumped all of my marketing efforts were finally paying off! We connected over our love of the outdoors, and hiking in the mountains and of course, our fur babies! I got to photograph Dakota and Jonathan for the first time in scenic mountain top engagement session, and have been counting down the days until I got to connect with them again for their wedding!

I absolutely love intimate weddings, they are becoming some of my favorites, it’s such a different vibe getting to connect with each one of your guests more personally, we even took a big group picture of the entire wedding! Dakota and Jonathan got married at Devils Backbone Brewery at the base of the mountain and combined their love of hiking, beer tasting, and even included their dog Remi in the ceremony! They were both anxious leading up to ceremony time, but made it through the vows perfectly and then headed to the party with their 60 closest friends and family!

There were so many touching an emotional moments, Dakota and her moms incredible bond, Jonathans emotions finally being able to marry the girl of his dreams, and so many epic dance moves. I loved being able to play a small part in telling their love story, and cannot wait to photograph these two again someday!
