All Aboard on the Durango Love Train
Nell & Nick | May 13th
From the bride: Our wedding inspiration was our shared love of adventure. We wanted our wedding day to fit us and to take everyone on an adventure to celebrate our marriage. Nick and I started dating in the mountains, we fell in love in the mountains, and it felt right that we got married in the mountains.
I’m still in love with my dress! Trying to think of somewhere else I could wear it.
Our ceremony started at 9 AM at The Durango Depot. There was coffee and donuts and guests chatted while my friend played guitar. I walked down the aisle to Somewhere Only We Know and cried even though I promised myself I wouldn’t. My Aunt Carla was a judge for many years, she has married most of my cousins, I love that she married us too!
Nick and I really wanted to connect and celebrate with all of our guests. We walked up and down the train to personally pass out our cupcakes and chocolates, giving us a moment to visit with our family and friends. It is one of my favorite memories of the day!
I loved everything about our wedding day!
Too many options caused us stress in the beginning, choose a concept and run with it. Also, you will not make everyone happy, do your best to make the two of you happy.

Photographer: Illuminarts. Drew is an artist. So happy we chose him. He captured the happiness and lightheartedness of the wedding. I cannot tell you how many compliments I have gotten on our wedding photography!
Floral Designer: April’s Garden. Colleen is amazing. I asked her for things like “symmetrical but not too symmetrical” and “big but not too big”, she gave me exactly what I wanted. Everyone commented on how beautiful my flowers were!
