Ouray, Colorado Mountain Wedding Inspiration at The Wright Opera House

Whenever Krysta of Elevation Weddings and Events asks me if I want to be part of a project, my immediate reaction is to say yes!   This time it was for a styled shoot with talented and creative wedding vendors in the Ouray, Ridgway and greater Western Slope area.  The shoot was part mountain town wedding styled shoot and part music video shoot.  The resulting images and video are unique, fun, and romantic, just like our models, Cie and Karisa.  Cie and Karisa are the actually married in real life members of indie-rock duo, You Knew Me When.

For the visual elements, Krysta called upon Sally Jo Ocasio of Ridgway, Colorado’s The Vintage Vault for styling.  Sally Jo selected some stunning vintage pieces from her collection for the bride and groom.  Wild Rose Cakes created a multi-tiered cake that was really more art piece than pastry.  The cake took over 90(!!!) hours to make and used a process known as sugar sculpting for the flowers.  Libby Tener made magic happen with hair and makeup.  And our incredible banquet table was made up of elements from BBJ Linen, Stonewood Vintage, and Little Bucket of Flowers (based in Ouray.)

Meeting other talented people in the Western Slope through creative projects like this one is one of my favorite things in life.  I’m beyond grateful for the opportunity.
