Welcome my friends to the last wedding blog of the 2010 season! I’m wrapping things up with a super fun Halloween themed wedding at the famous Stanley Hotel in Estes Park. Aimee and Alex are from Manhattan and planned their unconventional destination wedding around the annual Shining Ball at the hotel. While the wedding was not a costume event, many of the details and styling revolved around the haunted holiday. Also check out my sneak peak of Aimee and her bridesmaids in the hallway like the little girls in the Shining HERE.
I’m loving Aimee’s vintage style and unconventional wedding dress!
Alex brought a little humor to the First Look shot!
I put the city folk to the test, and brought them out for a little rock climbing near the hotel. How else are we going to get epic Colorado mountain shots that you are going to tell your kids about? Mother Nature put us all to the test, and threw some 40 mph wind gusts at us! It’s only a good story if you almost die, that’s what I always say.
Inspired by the group shot in The Shining. Where’s Johnny?
And here we are with the final shot! I wanted a long exposure night shot with some ghostly multiple images of the couple. Well, really I needed another take to get the composition perfect, but we were short on time and I only got one take! I’m still going to include it even though it doesn’t quite meet my perfectionist standards! Well, with tears in my eyes, I bid weddings farewell until 2011. Thanks for reading. Steve Z out.
