Tyler and Lynn | Old Thompson Barn Wedding

Savannah Chandler Photography | Aspen Wedding Photographer

I met Lynn and Tyler through a couple whose wedding I had photographed a few years back. We first met at the very beginning of 2020, hiking up the Mount Bierstadt trail for their winter engagement session. Not too long after our snowy day post-holing up to a viewpoint of Bierstadt and the Sawtooth, the world flipped upside down.

As the summer of 2020 began to approach and Covid cases here in Colorado leveled out (for a while, at least), wedding venues began to allow ceremonies and receptions to move forward as long as proper restrictions were being followed.

It was always Tyler and Lynn’s intention to have a more intimate wedding celebration, so the Pitkin and Garfield County cap of 50 guests was right in line with what they had been planning all along.

On a beautiful September day, I headed up to the Old Thompson Barn to celebrate with Tyler and Lynn. I absolutely LOVE the Barn for hosting a local Carbondale / Aspen wedding – the views of 12,966′ Mt. Sopris are absolutely stunning.

For their ceremony, Tyler and Lynn were greeted with rays of sunshine and beautiful fall weather. Just before their vows, the couple took a few moments to say something about each and every guest that was in attendance at their wedding – including myself – which was so beautiful and an amazing way to personally thank everyone for celebrating with them.

To cap off their night, some lawn games and indoor distanced seating for conversation made for the perfect intimate setting. We took a few moments to sneak off and capture the Milky Way – which is always a personal favorite way to end our night together.

Thanks for inviting me to celebrate, Tyler and Lynn!

Cheers –
