A Spring Wedding in Vail
Lauren & Brendan love animals, good food, Colorado, Subarus, and great photography. Their wedding somehow combined all of these elements in perfect winter style this January when they drove from Texas with their beloved dogs Ryleigh & Enzo, to Boulder where the two had met in college. The fun-spirited ceremony was celebrated outside on the patio of Flagstaff House, known for excellent cuisine and breathtaking views. Zorn Photography captured not only the fun and fashion of the wedding day but they also spent time with the newlyweds in Breckenridge with snowboards, snowy village scenes, and a bit of snow-angel frolicking. As of this summer, we’re delighted to welcome Lauren & Brendan back to Colorado as residents…where their hearts have long been and where their dogs and other assorted animals will be happy to call home!

Burlap Events is this sweet new company based in Missouri that Ashley & Mark introduced us to. Couples choose a flip camera package, receive the cameras via mail the week before the wedding, and start shooting footage. They and their guests can capture everything from behind the scenes footage to ceremony vows to honeymoon adventures. The cameras are then sent back to Burlap Events to be edited into both a long and short version of the wedding festivities. It’s genius! And fun.
Check out Ashley & Mark’s Vail Mountain Wedding for some great footage and editing results!
Mountain weather can be unpredictable in April but as Vail locals, Ashley and Mark completely embraced the gently falling snow that softened their wedding day. Brinton Studios beautifully captured the romance of that first dance on the Donovan Pavilion patio surrounded by friends, family, baby’s breath, and shimmering bubbles, the festive bridal party serenade from a green Turtle Bus, the sacred moments of a meaningful ceremony at Vail Chapel, and hand-crafted details like the pretzel ski poles dipped in chocolate by Ashley’s mom, the escort cards displayed in wine corks on wine-box cheeseboards crafted by Mark, and the aspen tree masterpiece cake by Mountain Flour. A gourmet mac and cheese station from Footers Catering warmed guests up for an evening of fun and dancing.
Ashley and Mark, you are such a beautiful couple, inside and out, and we are so grateful to have been part of your weekend!
