Riley + Jacob
Sometimes love comes when you least expect it. When a mutual friend (or shall we say matchmaker?) introduced Riley and Jacob, neither of them were looking for love. But it was immediately clear that Riley and Jacob could, at least, become great friends. Eventually, with the not-so-subtle push of their friend, they went on their first date. And that was it, they quickly connected on personal, emotional, and intergalactic level (they both love Star Wars!).
They fell in love through “small, intimate moments,” and they dreamed of their wedding reflecting that. Riley and Jacob both live in Texas, but they absolutely adore the mountains. Riley told us that she feels her best when she’s in Colorado’s mountain air. So it was our turn to not-so-subtly try to convince them to move to Colorado, oops! They decided to have an intimate wedding, and invite some of their closest friends and family. I think our favorite part of intimate weddings is being able to see the relationships our couples have. Riley and Jacob were surrounded by such a warm and loving community! As I looked through the crowd during their ceremony, there was not a dry eye in sight!
In true Colorado fashion, the forecast leading up to Riley and Jacob’s wedding day was constantly changing. At first it was supposed to rain in the evening, then all day, then it was supposed to snow in the evening, and then all day. On the morning of the wedding, the forecast called for on and off rain throughout the entire day. But it didn’t. The rain and then snow held off until right after the ceremony, which was truly magical! Some of Riley and Jacob’s guests had never seen the snow before, so everyone hurried outside to feel the snow fall on their skin.
Riley and Jacob’s wedding day was filled to the brim with love and it was an absolute honor capturing all of those little and big moments for them!
