Vail, ColoradoSonnenalp Hotel WeddingKara & Mac

Kara and Mac’s stunning and organic Sonnenalp Hotel wedding in Vail, Colorado was full of classic elements and rowdy good times.  We met these two lovers back in the winter of 2015 at a Lane and Travis’ wedding in Palm Springs. After a great Riverside, California engagement session last winter, we were really looking forward to the trip to Vail, Colorado for their big day.  Everything these two planned was a dream – from  their ceremony in a little chapel in the hills, to Kara’s stunning Ines di Santo lace dress to the mega dance party they threw at the Sonnenalp Hotel – every moment we saw was itching to be photographed.  Some of our favourite memories will be riding up the gondola to take photos in the mountains of their beautiful bridal party – Coors Light in hand or photographing Kara and Mac joyously running out of the church, with their wedding guests blowing bubbles from every direction.

While Vail is certainly more popular in the winter months, this little ski village in the Rocky Mountains is a perfect summer getaway.  We drove through Colorado this past winter while driving home to Ottawa from Los Angeles, in the midst of a massive snowstorm, and we must say, the city completely transform during warmer months.  Most of their family and friends flew in for their bohemian destination wedding, and everyone was all to pleased to spend some time soaking up that fresh mountain air.   We can’t wait to return to Colorado soon, to photograph another Sonnenalp Hotel wedding!

Thanks so much to Sara Brown Events for a beautiful production and to Meagan Shuptar for second shooting.
