Donovan Pavilion Wedding | Vail, CO | Shawna & Chris

davidgillettephotography-158

A Donovan Pavilion wedding is always one of my favorites. The location has it all; close and easy access to town and hotels, a large beautiful space, the park next door and the Gore Creek running behind the ceremony site in the back. As lovely as it is,┬áit’s the people I get to work with that make it even better and better every time. Chris & Shawna are perfect examples of that. Chris spent many years making Vail his dream come true when he lived and worked here starting back in 2004. I moved to the valley in 2005, so I always remember running into him and meeting him a few times, but never getting a chance to really know him. After living in Vail for almost 10 years, he moved back to Florida and discovered his real dream come true in meeting Shawna.

Chris’ love for Vail was contagious and instantly became one of Shawna’s favorite destinations. They began making memories together while visiting and she even got ready the morning of the wedding at the same condo where Chris proposed to her the year before. After a touching and emotional first look, we took advantage of an amazing Fall day for their portraits before the ceremony. After an emotional and hilarious vow exchange (Chris almost kissed Shawna too early haha) we settled into an intimate celebration with their families and closest friends.
