Sarah and Sarah first connected over their love of playing ruby back on the east coast (surprisingly, where I’m from originally in the DC area…small world!) before they moved their home to Denver. When they reached out to me they wanted to plan an intimate wedding for their closest family “somewhere” in Frisco. We spent a lot of time talking about where exactly. Let’s be honest…the possibilities up here are endless!
A few days before the wedding we met up and I drove them around to three possible spots I had scouted. It needed to be easy to get to for Sarah’s grandmother (who was performing the ceremony) but they also had hoped it would feel private as well. Turned out the first spot I showed them was the charm. A beautiful spot off a “billy goat” path off of the main rec path fit the bill perfectly. Lake Dillon had been preemptively drained a bit to make room for this year’s historic snow melt so the water levels were still low and we were able to walk out to an area with a beautiful stream and 360 degree views of snow capped mountains.
I think the coolest thing about this spot is that it really existed just for them. Even though it’s only been a couple weeks since their wedding, their spot is almost submerged under the snow melt waters now. It was their own perfect little moment, ordered up for their special day.
The love Sarah and Sarah share is beyond obvious. I’m not sure how I even got through their “first look” as the outpouring of support and happiness for each other had me crying like a baby behind the camera. Their families were similarly NOT dry eyed during the ceremony (which got me welling up again). It was truly a joy an honor to be there for them during these moments. Take a look at their beautiful afternoon and leave them some love in the comments.
