Abi and Alex booked me to photograph their intimate micro wedding in Maroon Bells, Colorado at the Maroon Bells Amphitheater just outside of Aspen. When you think of an intimate mountaintop wedding, you picture a gorgeous scene, right? This wedding was that and more. From the getting ready moments at their airbnb with the bride and groom’s closest friends and family to the end of the day reception that you’ll obsess over, this day couldn’t be better. We embraced the Colorado summertime weather and everything else that unfolded. Words cannot describe the beauty of this day and I cannot wait for you to scroll through each of these moments. If you’re dreaming of your own mountaintop wedding, I highly recommend considering a Maroon Bells Amphitheater wedding! Luckily, I’ll also explain all the different things to consider when planning your wedding here!
It’s all in the details, right? As a wedding photographer, I love photographing the little details of the wedding day almost as much as I love photographing the big moments. When it comes to weddings, details are so fun! Abi and Alex used intentional details all throughout their day. If you’re looking for inspiration for your own Colorado wedding, be sure to take note of these details! It might help!
The details of this wedding day included tons of fun elements! The bride wore these Bangs Shoes – perfect for the setting! Not to mention, they are way comfier than heels! Best of all, they’re currently on sale! So if you’re looking for adorable, comfy shoes for your Maroon Bells wedding, check them out!
Every single first look on a wedding day is truly special. Even more, though, is a first look on top of a mountain. Seriously, this moment took my breath away. How special is it that these two get to remember this moment and these views for the rest of their lives? If you’re considering getting married at the Maroon Bells Amphitheater, I highly encourage you to have your first look there too! There are tons of options throughout the location as well! Every single way you turn is beautiful. You’ll notice as you look through these images that the sun continually changed too. So, if you get married here, remember that Colorado summertime weddings can be unpredictable! I recommend always having an umbrella and sunglasses on hand – you’ll probably need both!
It truly doesn’t get better than sharing your wedding day vows at the amphitheater! As a photographer, I know I will remember this moment forever too.
If you’re considering having your wedding ceremony in Maroon Bells, there are a few things to note! Firstly, you’ll have to reserve the amphitheater a year in advance. Luckily, it’s only $200 to reserve it! But, be sure to plan to reserve it in advance. Additionally, there are a few rules and regulations to follow. Be sure to read them all prior to your ceremony.
Abi and Alex had their closest friends and family join them at the amphitheater. As a wedding guest, this would be such a special place to attend a wedding! There are benches built in for seating, which is incredible convenient! This couple also hired a live musician, and WOW. It brought chills. If you’re looking for a Colorado Wedding singer, be sure to hit up John Brewster Music! He’s incredible! Plus, he travels all across Colorado to perform at weddings!
Now for the reception. Abi and Alex had their wedding reception at an unbelievable Airbnb in the hills of Colorado. I kid you not – this wedding reception was on top of a mountain with the most stunning views on all sides. A picture may be worth a thousand words, but be sure to look through every one of these for a glimpse at the amazing evening. A wedding truly under the stars of Colorado. Carbondale was within an hour drive of the Maroon Bells Amphitheater, which was a good distance and even better location!
You’d be crazy to think a photographer isn’t going to share the golden hour bride and groom portraits of a Colorado mountain wedding 😉 So of course I have to share! It was a last minute decision to take a few golden hour photos and I am so glad we did! The mountains in the background take my breath away.
If you’re considering getting married in Colorado, I highly recommend looking into the Maroon Bells Amphitheater! Who knows, maybe even use this same airbnb! If you want a photographer to intentionally capture all your moments, I would love to chat! I’m a wedding photographer who photographs love stories in Colorado and beyond.
