Riley and Evan got the Colorado wedding of their dreams at the Vail Golf and Nordic Clubhouse and Wedding Island; joined by family and friends from all over; surrounded by the mountains. I was all ready to photograph their wedding in 2020 but we all know how that story goes. If you’re thinking about getting married in Vail, the Vail Golf and Nordic Clubhouse is a refined rustic and elegant venue for your wedding reception. The ceremony location on the private wedding island is a gift in itself to your destination wedding guests. One of my favorite moments from the ceremony was when Riley’s dad was walking with her across the bridge to the island and he sweetly took a second to look at his baby girl. I can only imagine what that’s like to get to that stage in life for a father. It was the sweetest moment. The island is secluded and your guests are then shuttled to cocktail hour to enjoy cocktails and hors d’oeuvre on the lawn. Riley and Evan’s 140 guests were then seated in the Gore Range ball room with the mountains perfectly framed in the center of the large picture windows. Before sunset, dreamy light flooded the entire room while their speeches and toasts prefaced dinner. I couldn’t pair down their wedding gallery for just this post so I’ll have to post more of their wedding party, reception, and dancing for another time!
