Ale & Tyler: Garden of the Gods Elopement Wedding Photography
“I just can’t imagine hanging out with anyone else for the rest of my life except him. I am so glad that we became friends first.”
Alessandra and Tyler are a classic story of two best friends that fell in love. They met in college and quickly became inseparable. Neither of them wanted to ruin the great friendship they had, until Tyler decided to be brave and let Ale know that they need to just risk it and see if it works. 6 years later, Tyler proposed. I guess it worked out pretty okay.
After their engagement, the couple started to plan a trip to Colorado with both of their immediate families so everyone can get to know each other. While planning, Ale and Tyler realized that they wanted their wedding to be kind of like this vacation - intimate, stress free, and surrounded by their family members. Then they had an idea - why not just get married in Colorado Springs, while everyone is together? So that is exactly what they did.
Alessandra and Tyler got married at the breathtaking Garden of the Gods park. The couple exchanged vows, with towering red rock formations as their backdrop. After saying their I Do’s, they had a picnic with their family and then we were off to explore the park together. Luckily the bride wore hiking boots with her custom Ayasa Afi wedding dress because there are 15miles of trails in the park, and I’m pretty sure we went through a good amount of them.
Ale and Tyler, thank you for your trust in me, for flying me out of Colorado of course, and for being so adventurous (even in that hot summer sun and those high altitudes)! I remember when you first talked to me about the day you met and became best friends, you told me how even now, years later, your relationship still feels the same. I wish for you guys to always have that - the same carefree, loving relationship forever!
