Palmer Lake, Colorado (a suburb of Colorado Springs) could not have been a more perfect background for my high school friend’s marriage to his beautiful bride. Lisa & Adam have always had a love for Colorado. It’s no wonder why they picked this beautiful tapestry for their big day. I’ve known Adam for many years and was introduced to Lisa. She could not be a more perfect match for him. Imagine my joy when Adam called to say that he had proposed to Lisa & that they wanted me to be in their bridal party.
Planning a destination wedding was no easy task. Lisa & Adam traveled to the Colorado Springs area many times and picked out the best venues. All of their guests also traveled to Colorado Springs to be part of their wedding weekend. With the Colorado Springs wildfires in the distance and their reception site on & off the pre-evacuation area, their wedding went on without a hitch. The officiating priest joked during their ceremony, “I’m going to call this a baptized in fire wedding.”
One of the more poignant moments was a part that most people weren’t able to see…it was Lisa & Adam’s first look; where they saw each other for the first time before their ceremony. With the mountains in the distance, Lisa leaned her head on Adam’s shoulder and Adam wrapped his arms around her. For a few minutes, they were able to unwind and just be with each other. That first look plays a large role in the trailer.
A huge thank you to our new friends at Shutterbliss Cinema for helping us film. This trailer reflects that beautiful day. Lisa & Adam, we wish you many years of happiness and love! I hope that this trailer reminds you of that wonderful weekend in Colorado.
