Getting Married in January, in Colorado, has its risks. Having a CO National Monument Wedding in January is even riskier! The weather can be unpredictable, especially when getting married in the mountains. The Colorado National Monument poses its own risks as it can get very windy and stormy when the Grand Valley sees relatively nothing for bad weather. It can be sunny, cloudy or snowy, or just downright freezing! It is almost the perfect glimpse into what marriage will be like. Beautiful but sometimes stormy! It’s moments like these that bring couples closer together and know that they can weather any storm.
But for Tirzah and Josiah, the day was a sunny 32 degrees. We decided to head up to the Colorado National Monument for a couple of hours before the ceremony to take photos. Even though the sun was shining, the crisp mountain air at 6500 elevations had everyone freezing. Was it worth it? We believe it was!
What we loved about this CO National Monument Wedding
- Tirzah’s Dress – This was a special moment because she was wearing her mothers’ dress. It is always such a beautiful thing to see something preserved and brought back to life with the beginning of a new wedding.
- The snowy landscape – Yes it was cold, but the snow against the National Monument was gorgeous and worth some frozen fingers and noses for a little while!
- The rings – One of our favorite things to shoot is the couples’ rings. Tirzah and Josiah’s rings did not disappoint. They were classy and showed their style perfectly.
- The bouquet – purple pops when it’s against the snow! We suggest purple for any winter wedding.
