This wedding was supposed to happen in Austin, Texas. Seriously. My wife Rachel and I met Mallory and Clay as they were planning their nuptials in the Hill Country of Texas. As we learned about their love for adventure that included ice climbing in Colorado and spear fishing in the Caribbean, we began to get the feeling that Austin didn’t really fit the vibe of their wedding.
Thankfully, ACL weekend (think: massive concert in Austin, gobs of people, traffic, and hotels full) was scheduled the same weekend as their wedding date, and Mallory and Clay asked my wife Rachel and I if we had ever been to the (self-proclaimed) “Switzerland of America”: Ouray, Colorado. Plans were changed, flights were booked, and suddenly the big Austin wedding in the Hill Country, became a much smaller and more intimate family wedding in the mountains surrounding Ouray.
The lavish wedding venue was replaced with a cliff overlooking a lake, hotels were traded for a VRBO that fit the entire wedding party including guests, and white water rafting was scheduled as a pre-wedding activity. Mallory and Clay made their wedding weekend their own, and this trailer gives just a hint of the time we spent together.
We left the weekend feeling like family, and we are very excited to share with you their full film soon.
Whether you are getting married in Austin, Colorado, or anywhere else, as long as you are making your wedding day your own, we would love to film it. Please get in touch.
