I just returned from a beautiful outdoor Destination Wedding in Aspen, Colorado! It was a fantastic trip and a wonderful experience for me as it was my first wedding as a groomsman.

Despite the fact that I was in the wedding party, I couldn’t resist the opportunity to shoot a gorgeous outdoor destination wedding in Aspen! The backdrop in the Rocky Mountains near the Maroon Bells was just too incredible for me to turn down, so aside from the ceremony itself, I had my camera by my side (the entire weekend, in fact) and got some breathtaking shots.

The delightful couple that got hitched was my best friend, Dave Hogue, and his fianceé, Rachel Poole (now Hogue). They chose the Ashcroft Ghost Town in the Colorado Rocky Mountains near Aspen for their ceremony, and it was such a wonderful location and the weather was perfect!

Here are a few of the amazing memories that I captured during their unforgettable Colorado destination wedding!
