Anatomy of opening a gift

I recently went to a bridal shower and snapped some photos while I was there. While editing the photos later, I particularly enjoyed the progression that emerged as the bride opened a particularly lovely-colored gift.

One month ago I was on a plane heading back from the most incredible weekend. B and I were invited to a wedding in Dunton Hot Springs, Colorado, and by a last-minute fluke I was elected officiant for the wedding! It was such a privilege to have a front-row seat to witnessing the love between Barb and Nick, and it took place in such a gorgeous place! So I’m sharing some photos from the weekend.

Let start with photos of our cabin…

The outer walls of the cabin, which was formerly the town store, were covered with antique paraphernalia. We also had our own private hot spring bath along with a gorgeous view behind the cabin.

There are not words which adequately express how beautiful Dunton is. So instead of trying, I’ll go ahead and share more photos for you, now of the rest of the resort–the saloon, bath house, and other small details around Dunton.

And, since this post wouldn’t be complete without photos of the bride, the groom, and the wedding…

The wedding "cake"!

Thank you, Nick and Barb, for letting me be a part of your beautiful day!

Anna and Matthew’s wedding was gorgeous.  Here are a few of my favorite pics from the day.
