A leap of faith, a cast line, a true Colorado love story. It takes tremendous courage to leave your hometown, even when your new state welcomes you with gorgeous mountain ranges and breathtaking sunsets. When Caylin followed God’s call to move from her hometown to Colorado Springs, she knew she was in for an adventure. She never imagined that adventure would lead to her small, intimate wedding at The Landing in Estes Park, but Michael was always meant to be hers, and she was always meant to be his…
Caylin and Michael tied the knot at their small wedding in Estes Park along the stunning Big Thompson River. The breathtaking scenery provided the perfect backdrop for their wedding, and the perfect playground beforehand. Michael, known by Caylin’s family as “the most Colorado guy out there,” spent the hours prior to the wedding fishing in the Thompson with his buddies, (my favorite new Colorado groom tradition), while Caylin spent a casual morning getting ready with her best friends and sister by her side. The pair wrote each other letters before the big ceremony, and I 10/10 recommend every single one of my couples who isn’t having a first look do the same!
Their intimate wedding in Estes Park looked as though it were plucked straight out of a woodland fairytale and Michael had the sweetest reaction to seeing Caylin walk down the aisle (I mean, who wouldn’t? Do you see that dress on her!?) Her dad officiated, and he hit all of the emotions perfectly: laughter, tears, and joy were felt throughout the ceremony they held.
It was an honor to capture their love among the gorgeous, intimate scenery the mountains of Estes Park provide. Is there anything dreamier than an intimate, outdoor wedding in Colorado? I couldn’t have envisioned a day better suited to these two, than exactly the one they got!
