Karen & Pete's Wedding Sneak Peek - Steamboat Springs, Colorado

Karen and Pete's wedding is a special one for the JMP family. Karen is the daughter of Joel and Carol, and sister of Kelly. Our whole family traveled to Steamboat Springs, Colorado where the happy couple first fell in love in their college years. After a few days of pre wedding festivities, the wedding day finally came on a clear cool day. We first started with family portraits then, Joel and Kelly headed up a gondola with the bride and groom. Amazing portraits and a fun carefree time with the couple on top of Mt. Werner. The Ceremony and reception was at a local restaurant where we joined family and close friends for an intimate ceremony and a cocktail party reception. Joel got the rare chance to enjoy being not only the father of the bride but a guest to enjoy both the ceremony and reception. Kelly had a blast capturing all the moments of the wedding reception from the epic speeches, impromptu dance off, and all the smiles and laughs all evening long. Karen and Pete, your love story is amazing and you had a beautiful wedding day that shows off how unique you both are. Best wishes and lots of love.


Thank you to all of our Steamboat Springs Vendors!
