About my couple & their decision to get married at Top of the Pines 

By the time Kali + Chris reached out to me, they had been together for 8.5 years. They met working at a restaurant back in 2011, fell in love, and grew up together. Before they started their relationship, they were best friends for a year. Kali was going to move out of the country when Chris confessed his love for her on a paper towel (scroll below to check it out, so cute) shortly before she was supposed to leave. The rest is history! 

Kali + Chris knew that they wanted to get married at Top of the Pines because they love the outdoors and this venue has amazing mountain views. Their wedding vibes were rustic and artsy, two words I would definitely use to describe them, and it was absolutely gorgeous. Their wedding gallery illustrates what Top of the Pines and the surrounding areas look like in mid-September.

Chris got ready in the neighboring town of Ouray at Box Canyon Lodge and Kali got ready at a super cute AirBnb in Ridgway. They had the best time getting ready with their wedding party and the emotions were definitely running high as everything was setting in!

Listen, Top of the Pines is even better in person. Everything about Kali + Chris’ wedding was a dream. The views, the vibes, the people! Any stranger off of the street could tell how absolutely loved K + C are by their people. It was beautiful to see and an honor to be apart of.
