We had one of the best views in Colorado at this beautiful wedding at YMCA of the Rockies in Estes Park. Seriously, the views at Emily and John’s ceremony were amazing.

I met John and his buddies inside a very small room at a Lodge. I had another photographer that covered the ladies getting ready in a separate room. All of the groomsmen were on the swim team together back in college. Naturally, they wanted to wear speedos under the suits to commemorate their time spent with each other. I told the guys that I was a member of my high school swim team just to make everyone feel more at ease. (especially myself) It was a little awkward being in a tiny room surrounded by guys in speedos. However, I managed to get some funny photos of them hanging around each other, acting nonchalant. It’s not something you often see at a wedding.

The ceremony took place on top of a hill with open views of the valley below. The wedding views at YMCA of the Rockies were gorgeous and I was reminded why I moved to Colorado 3 years ago. After the ceremony concluded, we got a couple of pics showing off the views with Emily and John. Then we headed back down the hill to a different location to start the reception, which is where the evening finished.
