Kursten and Charles- Estes Park Wedding

October in Estes Park, Colorado is a lovely time indeed. The air has a brisk chill, without the mountain freeze characteristic of a mountain summer, nor the harsh sun of a Rocky Mountain summer. Yes, Charles and Kursten chose their wedding date and location quite well. The venue was perfect, the weather was perfect, and the bride and groom were perfect. An added bonus was the bugling elk… who seemed to quiet down just for this couple’s ceremony. They’re very polite animals!

This Estes Park wedding provided us with many picture perfect moments. From Kursten’s getting ready shots in a rustic-chic cabin, to Charles’s handmade brew, to lovely lakeside shots of the couple, we couldn’t have asked for much more. This athletic and adventurous couple just begged for an outdoor location like this one. In fact, they woke up that morning to pre-wedding 5k run!

Given this couple’s carefree demeanor, their first look and ceremony locations came at no surprise. Kursten and Charles are highlighted best by organic splendor. They also had some of the best vegetarian fare we have had the pleasure of eating all season! Mathew loves his steak and all, but as a vegetarian, I (Ariel) much like Charles –  truly appreciate a fresh vegetable dish or a flavorful quinoa cake.

However, one of the day’s most memorable moments came when Kursten and Charles literally tied the knot; yes, they used rope – and teamwork – to tie a lovely little knot during their sweet ceremony. Not even the vocal elk could continue their impassioned droning with this adorable couple literally tying the knot nearby.Charles-Kursten-Estes-Park-Wedding001 Charles-Kursten-Estes-Park-Wedding002 Charles-Kursten-Estes-Park-Wedding003 Charles-Kursten-Estes-Park-Wedding004 Charles-Kursten-Estes-Park-Wedding005 Charles-Kursten-Estes-Park-Wedding006 Charles-Kursten-Estes-Park-Wedding007 Charles-Kursten-Estes-Park-Wedding008 Charles-Kursten-Estes-Park-Wedding009 Charles-Kursten-Estes-Park-Wedding010 Charles-Kursten-Estes-Park-Wedding011 Charles-Kursten-Estes-Park-Wedding012 Charles-Kursten-Estes-Park-Wedding019 Charles-Kursten-Estes-Park-Wedding020 Charles-Kursten-Estes-Park-Wedding021 Charles-Kursten-Estes-Park-Wedding022 Charles-Kursten-Estes-Park-Wedding023 Charles-Kursten-Estes-Park-Wedding024 Charles-Kursten-Estes-Park-Wedding025 Charles-Kursten-Estes-Park-Wedding026 Charles-Kursten-Estes-Park-Wedding027 Charles-Kursten-Estes-Park-Wedding028 Charles-Kursten-Estes-Park-Wedding029 Charles-Kursten-Estes-Park-Wedding030 Charles-Kursten-Estes-Park-Wedding031 Charles-Kursten-Estes-Park-Wedding032 Charles-Kursten-Estes-Park-Wedding033 Charles-Kursten-Estes-Park-Wedding034 Charles-Kursten-Estes-Park-Wedding035 Charles-Kursten-Estes-Park-Wedding036 Charles-Kursten-Estes-Park-Wedding037 Charles-Kursten-Estes-Park-Wedding038 Charles-Kursten-Estes-Park-Wedding039 Charles-Kursten-Estes-Park-Wedding040 Charles-Kursten-Estes-Park-Wedding041 Charles-Kursten-Estes-Park-Wedding042 Charles-Kursten-Estes-Park-Wedding043 Charles-Kursten-Estes-Park-Wedding044  Charles-Kursten-Estes-Park-Wedding046 Charles-Kursten-Estes-Park-Wedding047 Charles-Kursten-Estes-Park-Wedding048 Charles-Kursten-Estes-Park-Wedding049 Charles-Kursten-Estes-Park-Wedding050 Charles-Kursten-Estes-Park-Wedding051 Charles-Kursten-Estes-Park-Wedding052 Charles-Kursten-Estes-Park-Wedding053 Charles-Kursten-Estes-Park-Wedding054 Charles-Kursten-Estes-Park-Wedding055 Charles-Kursten-Estes-Park-Wedding056 Charles-Kursten-Estes-Park-Wedding057 Charles-Kursten-Estes-Park-Wedding058 Charles-Kursten-Estes-Park-Wedding059 Charles-Kursten-Estes-Park-Wedding060 Charles-Kursten-Estes-Park-Wedding061 Charles-Kursten-Estes-Park-Wedding062 Charles-Kursten-Estes-Park-Wedding063 Charles-Kursten-Estes-Park-Wedding064 Charles-Kursten-Estes-Park-Wedding065 Charles-Kursten-Estes-Park-Wedding066 Charles-Kursten-Estes-Park-Wedding067 Charles-Kursten-Estes-Park-Wedding068 Charles-Kursten-Estes-Park-Wedding069 Charles-Kursten-Estes-Park-Wedding070 Charles-Kursten-Estes-Park-Wedding071 Charles-Kursten-Estes-Park-Wedding072 Charles-Kursten-Estes-Park-Wedding073 Charles-Kursten-Estes-Park-Wedding074 Charles-Kursten-Estes-Park-Wedding075 Charles-Kursten-Estes-Park-Wedding076 Charles-Kursten-Estes-Park-Wedding077 Charles-Kursten-Estes-Park-Wedding078 Charles-Kursten-Estes-Park-Wedding079 Charles-Kursten-Estes-Park-Wedding080 Charles-Kursten-Estes-Park-Wedding081 Charles-Kursten-Estes-Park-Wedding082 Charles-Kursten-Estes-Park-Wedding083 Charles-Kursten-Estes-Park-Wedding084 Charles-Kursten-Estes-Park-Wedding085Charles-Kursten-Estes-Park-Wedding045
