Melissa + Patrick || Planet Bluegrass, Colorado
This couple had one epic wedding. They started the day by whitewater rafting with their friends and family who had come into town, celebrating all the cool things Colorado has to offer, and ended their day dancing the night away with their adorable VW Bus parked outside looking on.
Melissa and Patrick met through mutual friends in college 5 years ago, and got engaged on a remote, wildlife-filled camping trip in the mountains. They love traveling around together in their trusty bus, and truly had the best destination wedding here at the base of the Rocky Mountains at Planet Bluegrass.
It's not very often that we get to attend a wedding where the groom gets on stage and serenades his bride, but Patrick did just that (I can't say if this was before or after the Screech shots tradition...) with a seriously impressive version of Sweet Melissa, and then a few other songs to boot- also just as impressive. I was warned that there would be LOTS of dancing at this wedding, and I was not disappointed. As soon as the delicious doughnuts were served, the chairs became obsolete, and the dance floor was packed the rest of the night. These people know how to party, and it was so much fun getting to hang out with everyone!
When given only one word to describe each other:
Melissa on Patrick: Uplifting
Patrick on Melissa: Stunning
We loved photographing at Planet Bluegrass, and getting to photograph these two lovebirds. Congrats again, Melissa and Patrick! We're excited for what this next year as newlyweds holds for you both!
