David and Brandy’s Stanley Hotel Wedding
David and Brandy had a gorgeous Stanley Hotel Wedding in Estes Park, Colorado. So I confess, ever since moving to Colorado, I have wanted to film at the Stanley Hotel Wedding. I shoot a lot of elopements in Rocky Mountain National Park and Estes Park. So when Brandy and David hired me for their Stanley Hotel Wedding, I was through the roof!
The morning of Brandy and David’s wedding, I woke a little before sunrise. I wanted to get some awesome drone shots of the hotel before all the guests and tourists showed up. I grabbed a cup of coffee and sat outside my balcony for a bit when I realized something was moving right outside my window. Once my eyes adjusted I saw the Massive bear walking only a few meters away from me! I reached for my camera or even cell phone but realized I left it inside! Oh man! But it was my first bear this close and it was an awesome experience. Supposedly this year a lot of bears were roaming around Estes and even two different bears on two different occasions came into the Stanley Hotel!
Well anyways, I thought the best opening scene for Brandy and David’s Stanley hotel wedding would be a drone shot of the gorgeous property. So that is what I did. Right as the sun was rising, I parked outside the property and was able to get a gorgeous shot.
Brandy and David’s day was truly perfect. They had a gorgeous first look near their ceremony spot and later exchanged the most beautiful vows. Everyone was crying.
However, perhaps my favorite part of Brandy and David’s Stanley hotel wedding was their first dance. The hotel gave the whole day a old-romantic moody vibe. Their dance really justy tied it together. I have never seen anything like it. Check out their film below to see what I mean!
AND I got to work with some of my favorite vendors ever!
