Alex and Josh's Maison la Belle Vie Vineyard and Winery Wedding

I love shooting friends' weddings. This was no exception. Alex and Josh met through the family medicine residency my wife is a part of here in Grand Junction. After a while of dating, they ended up getting the nicest and chillest dog, Dutch, who is one of our dog's best buds.

Alex and Josh were married on the first hot day of the year, but it couldn't have been a better day. They chose to do a first look and I thought it was so sweet how Josh kept on twirling Alex around and saying she looked beautiful and couldn't believe his luck. We had a nice amount of time for them to spend some quality time together before the ceremony began and it was wonderful getting some nice shots around Maison's grounds. I love their barn, and thus one of my favorite shots was of them backlit before the ceremony.

The love flowed just as it had during their engagement session. The toasts were heartfelt testaments to their love and their friendships and close-knit family. The rest of the evening went off without a hitch and we all had a blast. Thanks and congratulations Alex and Josh - it was a beautiful day!
