Ellis Ranch - Fort Collins, CO

Shea & Ryan

Shea was a girl who was born and raised by the mountains.  Ryan was a boy who was living across the country near a field, and wanted to be anywhere near mountains.  He pulled out a map one day, closed his eyes, pointed to said map, opened his eyes .... and he had landed on Colorado.  He packed up, and off he went.  In the meantime, Shea was living normal life, over by the gorgeous Rocky Mountains, as Ryan was overcoming obstacles to get to those beloved mountains.  Little did they know - life was leading them to each other.  In Colorado, Shea was working at P.F. Changs as a cute little waitress, and Ryan was hired as the new hunky bartender -- they met the first night, and the rest is history.  

Their gorgeous wedding day was no different than that magical first night -- full of love, smiles, and new memories.  They said their vows in front of family and friends, under the beautiful Colorado sky at Ellis Ranch, and it couldn't have been more perfect.  Their mixture of rustic and dainty details were to die for, and Shea looked stunning as she wore a champagne wedding dress and her mothers pearls.  Ryans eyes lit up (and teared up) as Shea walked down the isle, and everyone had the honor of witnessing their incredible love and friendship.  Laughter and happy tears filled the entirety of the day, and the patio deck was filled with dancing shoes and grooving souls as the sun slipped behind the mountain.  The day couldn't have been more perfect, and as Shea and Ryan's friends and family agreed during their toasts -- they couldn't be more perfect for each other.

Wishing you a HUGE congratulations, Mr. & Mrs. Pfeifer (and sweet little Sophia), and a HUGE thank you for choosing me to capture your day and your love.  I am so happy for you and I wish you the best today, tomorrow, and always!!  xo - all my love!
