Cheryl & Brett | Rubywood Breckendridge, Colorado wedding

Cheryl & Brett got married at Rubywood in Breckenridge over Labor Day weekend.

They rented this incredibly beautiful yet rustic private home for their wedding. This home looks like it belongs in a mountain home style magazine.  Since my family and I were vacationing in Breckenridge the week before, I stopped in the Wednesday before their wedding to locate this private home and met the groundskeeper.  He mentioned Rubywood has a five-million-dollar-view.  He was NOT joking!  If you are looking for a small wedding venue in the mountains and require a view, contact Paragon in Breckenridge and ask for Rubywood!

Not all couples have me photograph their entire wedding day… Cheryl & Brett had me there for three and a half hours.  I was able to get a few shots of Cheryl getting ready, pre-ceremony portraits with family members, the ceremony, more family portraits afterwards, some bride and groom portraits, and a little bit of their reception.  Not bad, huh?!icon smile Cheryl & Brett | Rubywood Breckendridge, Colorado wedding

There were a LOT of great images from their wedding but here’s a few I’ve pulled for their wedding photo sneak peek:

Angela - I absolutely love the photos of Brett seeing Cheryl for the first time, at most weddings most people are looking at the bride and many of them miss special moments like those. Pure Adoration, I love it.

Sally Cope - My favorite photo of Brett & Cheryl is the one where they are headed down the mountain hand in hand…….”We Did It”
In all of these precious pictures I see such happiness and I am so excited for you and your family. Love to you, Aunt Sally

Andrea Brusuelas - These photos are simply beautiful! But beyond their photographic beauty, they truly tell the story of Brett & Cheryl’s special connection. Very rarely does a photograph so clearly impart the subject’s emotion.

Stacy - My favorite pictures are the 2 black & whites in front of the door. Brett & Cheryl look so comfortable and extremely happy. You can see the mischevious look that Brett always has when you mention Cheryl’s name. Congratulations you two!

Cheryl McIntosh - So not sure if my comment counts towards the 25, but I’ll add anyway:) My absolute favorite is the one against the brick where the flowers are in focus and we are blurry in the background – that is so romantic and beautiful. Also I am shocked that my second favorites are the two of us walking up the driveway hand in hand – I felt silly doing it and can’t believe how much I like them. They look so natural. Awesome job Heather! I can’t wait to see the rest!

Brett McIntosh - well all the pictures i have seen so far look amazing and caught the beautiful day we shared, i think the Black and White picture with Cheryl looking away and my eyes closed shows the true feelings we share between us, second favorite by far is cheryl sitting on my lap with the amazing waterfall running to our right, everything we enjoy! Great Job Heather!!!!!

Jodi Skinner - The combination of black and white and color sends a most intimate message of serious love that lasts forever. Cheryl and Brett show their great taste by the beautiful surroundings in each and every photo. Our favorite of the two of them is at the waterfall where we saw the peace and joyful love they share!!

Wendy - The pictures are all so beautiful!!! And I love the wedding shoes hanging from the bedframe, hee hee (and blushing…)
p.s. All of the photos incorporate God’s amazing outdoors. You had the most beatiful location and its so awesome to see the photos show that! I was especially relieved to see that in your pictures among the flowers, there were still some left and that my girls hadn’t picked them all :)

September 16, 2011 - 8:28 pm
