Jenny + Caleb’s Donovan Pavilion Wedding
Before their Donvan Pavilion wedding, I first did Jenny and Caleb’s engagement photos on a frozen lake outside of Boulder. It was one of the coldest and windiest sessions I did all year, so I think we were all excited when their wedding day in Vail rolled around with perfect fall weather.
We started the day at the Four Seasons, where Jenny and Caleb were both getting ready with their bridesmaids and groomsmen. Then the couple met up for their first look in the hotel courtyard, before we all headed out for photos with their wedding party.
The Donovan Pavilion wedding venue sits centrally in Vail, and there are lots of beautiful places to go for photos around there. Jenny and Caleb had rented a shuttle to drive us all around, so we headed out to a park on the outskirts of town for photos.
The wedding ceremony at Donovan Pavilion was in an aspen grove outside the venue. Jenny and I had both been hoping for fall colors, but after a wet summer the leaves were still stubbornly green in the middle of September. But no one was complaining on the beautiful fall day that felt more like late summer!
