Amanda and Zach’s wedding
day started out just like a perfect day should- hanging out with all the most important people in their lives. Amanda and her girls spent the morning relaxing and getting ready in the bridal suite at the Hotel Talisa. Zach and his guys headed to their rental house, laptops in tow, for some Fantasy Football. Once everyone was spruced up Zach and Amanda headed up the Eagle Bahn Gondola for a first look with the stunning Gore Range in the background. First looks are often one of the Bride and Groom’s favorite events from the wedding- it’s such a whirlwind day that getting to spend a few minutes alone together really helps set the mood for the celebration. We got especially luckily with some slightly stormy skies that gave us perfect light for their photos at the top of Vail. Back at Hotel Talisa Amanda got to have a touching first look with her dad- that may have been even more emotional for Amanda’s sisters!
Amanda and Zach selected the Gore Creek trail for their bridal party and family photos because Zach proposed along the path! They have a huge, awesome group of friends and family that made the photo session easy and fun. Once photos were wrapped up everyone relaxed for a few minutes before heading to the ceremony on the terrace. Amanda and Zach’s close friend Sarah performed a heartfelt ceremony with a few happy tears from everyone attending! Amanda’s hysterical nephew brought some levity to the poignant vows as well.
Amanda and Zach’s reception decor in the Zermatt Ballroom of the Talisa was absolutely stunning. Pastel florals and exquisite candelabras set the mood for an elegant evening. There were lots of laughs, love, and a little teasing during the speeches followed by surprise shot skis for the bridal party and family. The shot skis are a family tradition for Zach, and the skis they used were a pair of his dad’s! After wrapping up the formalities Amanda and Zach hit the dance floor with their friends and family for a little bit of dancing, a little bit of singing, and a lot of fun!
