An elopement in the heart of a blizzard? Now that is adventurous!
Peter and Angela truly made their wedding day their own. After savoring the seclusion of the mountains and exchanging vows in the midst of heavy snowfall, the newlyweds celebrated in style at a festive Telluride street fair, sharing their first dance amongst vibrantly costumed festival-goers. “…the best images that you capture are for the truly, undeniably, head-over-heels in love with one another loves,” photography Amy Bluestar shares. “The kind of love that radiates and sets the example for what love is and how we are all capable of finding a counterpart in our lives that adores and cherishes us with no bounds and steadfast loyalty. Peter and Angela are one such couple…”

“Angela and Peter’s elopement is one of my favorites elopements to date. The couple flew out from the city in Denver to elope in the mountains in Telluride during a full on blizzard… The elements were really stacked against us, yet smiles were plentiful, even as the snow began to fall and consume everything in its path, including the very moment the lovely couple said their nuptials and tied the knot.”

“My favorite from this set, though there are many, is the moment that Peter and Angela kissed and became man and wife, both of them shrouded in snow but with no concerns, cares, worries, or feelings other than the immense love they shared with each other in that moment. It’s hard not to shed a tear or two of joy when looking back at those stills.”
“After descending the mountain and making our way back into Telluride, we found ourselves in the midst of a vibrant and lively street festival, filled to the brim with dancing, bands, beer, and eye-catching characters spruced up in all sorts of colorful costumes and attire, including a man dressed as a dancing orange bear that managed to sneak his way into the party. It was a welcome intrusion, to say the least! The image of Peter and Angela dancing together in the streets as man and wife will make me laugh and smile every time I look back at the photos.”
“…every frame of their union that I was able to capture speaks volumes [about] the love they have for one another. You know that the flame they have for each other is one that will never burn out.”
