Art Silk and Kristen Sloan photographed Courtney and Scott’s Vail Colorado Mountaintop wedding on a beautiful September day. The flowers and wedding decor reflected fall in the Rocky Mountains, but the weather was so warm that it felt like summer.
The couple wanted to be photographed on Vail mountain for their engagement portrait session during the summer. Courtney and Scott are avid hikers, and the field below their wedding ceremony on Vail mountain proved to be a perfect location for this photo session. At the wedding, their cupcake topper also featured mountaineering hikers!
We started photographing the bride getting ready in her room at The Lodge at Vail. Courtney and Scott decided to see each other before the ceremony and we photographed them walking through Vail Village and along the Gore Creek.
The wedding ceremony was held at the top of Vail mountain at an outdoor stone ampitheatre which is accessed by the Eagle Bahn Gondola. The ceremony site offers amazing views of the Vail valley, Gore Mountain Range, and Mount of the Holy Cross, with seating for up to 180 people.
The Lodge at Vail hosted their reception at the Cucina Rustica restaurant.
