Victor & Emily | Backyard Wedding in Rifle

Moments and laughter have always been the heart of Victor and Emily’s relationship. From the time I met them for their snowy engagement session on the Mesa to their backyard wedding in Rifle, I could tell how important these things were to them. They even told me the thing they love most about one another is the laughter they create and share together! Emily said, “It happened for him way faster them me. I would go to Fraser to see him before he moved, and we have just always laughed a lot together. So after many weekends of laughing it became more and more obvious we had something worth holding on to.”

In planning the photography part of the big day, Emily made it clear to me that they cared more about having those intimate candid moments captured than the posed photographs, which was music to my ears! I love documenting the emotion in a celebration, all the friends and family together from all over, laughing and celebrating the start of two people’s marriage. Emily told me, “We wanted to keep everything simple and focus on the reason we are all there: two people starting a life and melding of the ones near and dear to us!”

I could see this intention from the moment I arrived at their home in Rifle and was greeted by Emily’s mother and her dogs. Inside she was having her hair and makeup done by a dear friend, surrounded by bridesmaids and babies getting ready. From the arbor for the ceremony to the bouquets and boutonnieres, the florals were done by a family friend and set up with help from the bridesmaids. Even the cake table was decorated and set up by the girls. Everyone contributed to setting the day’s plans in motion and making everything look perfect!

Victor and Emily said “I do” in the pasture and danced the night away outside the barn. It was the perfect set up for everyone to enjoy the company and the beautiful views their home looks over! I loved that Emily had a separate, shorter dress for the reception to really let get her party on! Best idea ever. Take a peek at my favorite moments from their backyard wedding in Rifle:
