Shyann and Yurik are two of the coolest people on the planet. When they contacted us to shoot their Telluride Colorado wedding, we were so thrilled to be able to be shooting a wedding on a mountaintop in one of our favorite states (and our first “official” destination wedding!) Little did we know we’d make two friends in the process, and go on an amazing two day adventure with these two in the Colorado mountains! Instead of a usual engagement session or day after session, Shyann and Yurik brought us downhill mountain biking the day before their wedding. We had a blast on the trails with them, photographing one of their favorite things to do together. You’ll never find these two too far away from each other, or an adventure. Yurik even proposed to Shyann inside a cave they discovered together on a hike in the mountains. For two people who love the mountains almost as much as they love each other, a wedding on top of a mountain was a nobrainer for them – they even set the date for their 8-year dating anniversary (cue Awwww…). Shyann and Yurik had their ceremony at the San Sophia Overlook, close to 11,000 feet in elevation, and overlooking the mountains surrounding the town of Telluride. From Shyann’s unique wedding gown, to the flowers she arranged herself, to the location, to the love story, everything was amazing, and we can’t believe we were lucky enough to have been put in contact with these two!
Shyann and Yurik, thanks for being awesome! We’re so glad to have gained two friends (and a new appreciation for downhill mountain biking)!
