This wedding was photographed by Durango CO Photographer, Karen Skelly Photography.
Brian and Shondra live in Utah, but chose Durango CO as their wedding site because her parents live near here and she lived in Durango for a period of time. Both of them love the beauty and charm here in Durango and, of course, the friendly people. The site they chose for their wedding is called Tall Spruce House and it’s located off Highway 550 near Trimble Springs and Dalton Golf Course. Brian loves to golf, so I suspect that location had something to do with the wedding choice. Unfortunately there was only one spot where we could do all their photographs – there was only a front yard facing the road and another house across the street. No backyard at all.
Shondra had her hair and makeup done at Hair Fusion in Durango, the cake was from The Flour Sack in Durango, and the flowers came from April’s Garden also in Durango. Shondra wore one beautiful dress for the ceremony, and another beautiful dress for the reception!
Just as the ceremony was to begin, it started to thunder, so everything was moved indoors. After the ceremony, it cleared up, so the reception and photographs were moved out doors again. Thank goodness because the house was too small to do any nice images. It was a very small wedding with around 25 friends and family attending.
Here are some of their photographs. As always, let me know what you think.
