4-hour destination wedding

Chelsea and Ryan traveled from Ohio to be married at the Garden of the Gods. Their destination wedding lasted 4 short, but very sweet hours one morning. Chelsea and Ryan planned their destination wedding without a wedding planner. They didn’t have a florist or a DJ. What they did have was a great love for Colorado Springs.

Chelsea grew up and attended college in Colorado Springs. We planned a photography schedule that would capture her wedding in a 4-hour time span. I met Chelsea and Ryan at the new Holiday Inn Express in downtown Colorado Springs and photographed them getting ready.

After about 30 minutes, Chelsea and Ryan traveled separately to the Garden of the Gods. They shared a private moment before the ceremony. Afterwards, Chelsea and Ryan met their family and friends at the Siamese Twins trailhead and hiked to the dramatic rock formation.

We finished the day with pictures in the mountains above Colorado Springs. Later, Chelsea and Ryan celebrated with a barbecue at her grandfather’s home. Chelsea and Ryan pulled off a destination wedding in Colorado Springs for the price of a weekend vacation to Colorado. Chelsea and Ryan’s wedding inspired us to create a wedding package specifically for adventurous couples who want to plan a 4-hour destination wedding.
