Photographing Weddings in Grand Junction

Grand Junction is where I call home, so it holds a special place in my heart! Weddings in Grand Junction have a wide diversity in backdrops, from the Colorado National Monument, Palisade wineries, and Powderhorn ski resort on the Grand Mesa. The wedding venues here in the valley seem to form around the beautiful views that I die for as a Grand Junction wedding photographer.

If you love the romantic glow of winery weddings, Palisade’s sprawling vineyards are just for you! Drawing couples from all over the state and beyond, Colorado’s wine country is a top destination for weddings in Colorado. Grand Junction weddings are wonderful because of our longer season here. Outdoor weddings can be held from April through October (sometimes even November!) with relatively uneventful weather and warm evenings. While July and August are quite hot in the valley, the light lasts well into the evening allowing some of those golden hour celebrations I love the most, after the heat of the day has gone down. The purple glow of the mountains and the mesa at sunset is one of the prettiest colors in the world. With amazing wedding planners, bakers and florists with gorgeous work, your Grand Junction wedding is destined to be perfect!
