Nederland Wedding Photography | Sara + Nick

They’re an outdoorsy, mountain loving couple who enjoy making silly faces at each other, road biking and fishing. Well, Nick loves fishing. Sara loves drinking a beer in the sun while watching Nick fish. It works.

Sara and Nick had a sweet and intimate Nederland wedding this past summer. They rented out a private residence just south of the Barker Reservoir, with a breath-taking view of the Indian Peaks. I’ve photographed dozens of Colorado mountain weddings at private residences, but this one was definitely one of my favorites.

I absolutely loved Sara and Nick’s wedding details. From the dress, to the cake, to the bouquet, to the fabric ceremony set up… their wedding was elegant, simple and perfectly them.

And then there was their awesome couple’s session. After their tear jerking ceremony and family portraits, we headed down to the Barker Reservoir for some fun photos by the water. Sara and Nick laughed, played and even danced. And the lighting was such that Sara’s dress lit up. So that was awesome.

Enjoy their photos!
