What an absolutely stunning duo set amongst a rustic, classically Colorado setting! Photography by Jewels* gives us a gorgeous story of this spring wedding day, with the season just starting to peek through. The maids dressed in all black only add to the glamour of the day, and next to the gorgeous bride, Kelli, these ladies completely steal the show. Love is definitely in the air in Vail, and this wedding proves it!
From the photographer....
From the first moment Kelli walked into our showroom, I knew we were going to be friends! Not only drop-dead gorgeous, Kelli is a sweetheart to the core. When she and Brian chose us to photograph their wedding in Vail, we were stoked. Beautiful, Vail Village wedding? Yes, please!
For the wedding, they chose The Vail Interfaith Chapel and Cucina Rustica at the Lodge at Vail, which is considered Vail’s most cherished setting for the perfect wedding day. The entire event was filled with elegance and warmth, and Kelli & Brian looked stunning. After the ceremony, everyone was escorted from the chapel to the reception by a bagpiper - it was quite a sight to see and a great way to keep everyone together! Dinner and the events following were all met with the same classiness and poise as the times leading up to then. We were (and still are), completely honored that they chose us to be a part of it!
I'm sure Mr. & Mrs. McConnell look back on their day as a reflection of their tastes and a fulfillment of their personal wishes and dreams. Their love radiates from the photos. We hope you enjoy looking at them!
Kelli & Brian were introduced by a mutual friend, and it was game over after the first date! The proposal was so precious that Kelli's son and Brian's parents were "in on it". They all made it absolutely perfect for Kelli in that when they returned from dinner one night, she walked into a candle filled entry with the words "Marry Me?" spelled out on the floor at her feet. The very next morning, Brian whisked his new fiancee away to Napa for the weekend to celebrate their engagement!
