A Grand Lake Wedding {St. Anne Catholic Church + Riviera Event Center}

Grand Lake, Colorado Wedding

Catholic Mass at St. Anne’s and Reception at the Western Riviera Event Center

I am excited to share photographs from another Grand Lake, Colorado wedding. The wedding ceremony took place at a very cute, simple Catholic Church–St. Anne’s. The wedding reception took place at the Western Riviera Event Center–oh, that deck with those mountain views! I also loved how Brendan and Noel had a fun cocktail event at Rocky Mountain National Park. Champagne, toasts, loved ones, and their little dog were all there to celebrate the love.

Other things that I loved about this wedding include: the map rosettes that decorated the tables, the amazing band that played Grateful Dead and Phish cover songs throughout the night, the great first dance that was full with lots of enthusiasm, how people of all ages danced the night away, and the fireworks. Yup, Brendan and Noel were lucky enough to get married during Grand Lake’s Constitution Week, which means the most fabulous wedding gift of an amazing firework display!

hey there!


I've been photographing families professionally since 2006. I am a wife, mama to 2 boys, companion to 2 cats who are named after members of the royal British family, a former preschool teacher. I love running, hiking 14ers, sparkly clothes, the band Phish, river float trips, St. John USVI, farm CSAs, and Colorado blue skies.
