Grant and Darice
      Keystone, Colorado
      June 26, 2010

      Darice and Grant got married last weekend in front of one of the most beautiful backdrops anyone could hope for. They had their ceremony on the Schoolmarm ski run outside the Summit House, on the top of Dercum Mountain. The view of Lake Dillon was breathtaking! Afterward, we took another gondola ride further into the mountain to their reception at the Alpenglow Stube. It was the perfect setting for a destination wedding, and a true gem for all the out of state guests.Congratulations, Darice and Grant! I hope you’re having a great honeymoon in the tropics!

      Absolutely wonderful and amazing :). You are a born artist ๐Ÿ™‚

      I’m jealous. There can’t be many more beautiful places to get married in the world. It always amazes me to see where you get to go and take your wedding photos Charlotte, it must be fantastic for you to get to experience so many stunning places with these couples. I’m not really into skiing but even I’d consider a place like that for the sheer beauty of it.

      Wowee!! just takes my breath away! May you keep the happiness and beauty of your wedding with you always. Thank you for including us in your celebration. May God’s blessings be upon you and your families. Love you guys, Chuck

      Darice –

      You’re wedding was beautiful. I am not originally from colorado and I would have never thought of a beautiful mountain top wedding…I am just in awe of it!

      Congratulations to you and your husband Grant.


      The background of the mountains is incrediable and that sky is amazing!

      Beautiful and stunning! What an amazing site!

      I just couldn’t wait to see our photos when we got back from our honeymoon. They turned out sooooooo great. I was grateful you were able to photograph our wedding with such style, you are amazing!

      Why is it that we only see wedding photos. Why no honeymoon photos or did you not get out of the room? I’m told to say great pictures but I’m holding out for the honeymoon photos. Grant also if you want to look like a woodsman than come to our house and I’ll fix you up with a chainsaw and some gloves. Darice I don’t know you well enough to poke fun at you but I’m just waiting!!!!!!

      Fantastic images of the couple and gorgeous images of the scenary!
