I met the wedding party at Cafe Suzzanne for lunch, which was a little cabin up on the mountain. After lunch they wanted to go up to the top of the Elk Camp run because it was a spectacular view of the mountains for a quick group photo.
Rehersal dinner was at the Roaring Forks Mountain Club just down from the hotel. Grilled burgers, chicken, mashed potatoes, and desert was amazing.I started with the girls at the Snowmass Village Salon with hair appointments around 11:30 in the morning, hung out there for awhile and then went up to Shannon's parents room where she was going to be getting into her dress.Shannon was glowing with joy, she was so happy and proud to be getting married. After she finished up getting ready, I set up her and father for a first moment, and then again the same for the groom David after I ran downstairs to grab a quick portrait of him.
Sunday morning around 8am we took off for the hill for a quick trash the dress session with their wedding attire on. David has been skiing for years, even a ski instructor, and has raced as well! Shannon got into skiing about a year ago after falling in love with it during a few ski lessons from David.
What an awesome couple, awesome group of people to be spending 4 days with in Aspen Colorado. Couldn't have asked for better weather, other than -15 mph winds on the actual wedding day for the ceremony. Snowboarding in 9 inches of fresh powder was the neatest thing I've done in the winter.
