Kristin & David- Steamboat Springs Wedding

Kristin & David had a beautiful Steamboat Springs Wedding which was held at the idyllic Catamount Ranch Historic Barn.  Their wedding day was filled with lots of tender moments, a ton of laughter and a a whole lot of fun (plus some serious rain and an unexpected power failure). But their wedding day went off without a hitch thanks to Kristin & David’s amazing attitudes and Lindsey’s, of One Fine Day Productions, incredible planning & execution.
It was such a joy to work with Kristin & David from the very first time we met. They were very relaxed (yet organized!)  and knew that they wanted their wedding day to be a reflection of the love they shared and the love they had for their family and friends… and that is exactly what it was all about.
Kristin and David planned their wedding details to incorporate the beauty of Colorado and the rich traditions of Hawaii where David is from. The ring bearers wore a traditional Hawaiian cowboy plaid with the cutest little cowboy boots I have ever seen. They had leis made for the groomsmen and parents and the bridesmaids carried stunning bouquets of orchids. And mother nature worked with us and didn’t let the rain pour until after the outdoor ceremony finished. And as we often see in Colorado, after a brief but intense rainfall, the skies cleared up again, and allowed us to head back out and get some beautiful photographs just as the sun set. During the cocktail hour Kristin surprised David with Hawaiian singers who brought the spirit of the islands with them. Kristin’s father gave an amazing toast that had everyone (including me) laughing and crying at different points. And the dancing and festivities lasted long into the evening thanks to the wonderful tunes played by LSP Entertainment.

I love how Kristin sums up the wedding day here: “I didn’t really dream of my perfect wedding as a young girl growing up, but I can truly say I ended up having my perfect wedding without even knowing it. Looking back, the wedding was everything that we hoped it would be, and we felt that it represented us as a couple because it was warm and welcoming, simple but classic, and more than anything it was meaningful and fun!”

Thank you Kristin & David, it was such a joy to work with you and wish you all the happiness in the years to come!  Best, Rachel
